Sounds Crafty is a special series of craft showcases picked by Kiwi musicians, bands and DJs, published throughout New Zealand Music Month. So far featuring Julia Deans, Urbantramper, Hikoikoi, Rosy Tin Teacaddy, Forbidden Joe and Mea Grenell in 2010, and previously featuring artists such as Minuit’s Ruth Carr, Nathan King, The Twitch’s Fleur Jack, singer/songwriter Flip Grater and Hera, Sounds Crafty brings rhythm and craft together and finds out what NZ musos make of it all.
