is a young folk musician the port town of Lyttelton, Christchurch.
Inspired by the country and folk music forming around her at Lyttelton Records and by international musicians like Courtney Barnett, bringing their own versions to folk music, Candice’s album ‘Evergreen’ is an eclectic mix of Folk, Country and Rock-Pop. She may only be 17, but Candice has been singing from the heart for a good many years.
At 15 and coping with the death of her grandmother, Candice wrote “Helping Hands” a song she donated to Canteen to raise funds for cancer awareness.
”I didn’t want to just write it and not have any purpose come out of it.’’ explains the young singer.

Solo rockabilly raconteur Lindon Puffin has toured & played alongside Billy Bragg & Dave Dobbyn as well as fellow Lyttelton comrades The Eastern, Marlon Williams & Delaney Davidson. He’s had an album in the top 10, been shortlisted for a Silver Scroll & describes his music as ‘covert country yacht rock’. He plays a mean harmonica, spins hilarious yarns and mixes up his own songs with a eccentric range of covers. Last year’s show was packed, so make sure you arrive early for a decent seat!
