Singer/songwriter Amiria Grenell - daughter of country music stalwart John - has won the Best Folk Album Tui for Three Feathers.

The Lyttelton-based musician's second album took out the prize from fellow finalists Otago quartet The Chaps and Westland's Mel Parsons.

Recorded at the Grenell family farm at Whitecliffs in Canterbury, and featuring her brother Redford and father, among others, the album ranges in style from folk and reggae to country and blues. The title track, and the beautiful Wind Blows South, are dedicated to a friend of Grenell's who died of cancer, aged 22.
