Photo: SUPPLIED Ohakea bagpiper, Sergeant Murray Mansfield will soon be performing with the Central Band of the Royal New Zealand Air Force (RNZAF). Sergeant Mansfield, a RNZAF aircraft technician is one of New Zealand’s top bagpipers; he has won every piper’s prize that New Zealand has and has competed in Scotland, Canada, United States and Australia. The band’s director of music, Squadron Leader Owen Clarke said they are lucky to have him as a regular guest. ‘‘He brings a tremendous sense of occasion to ceremonial pieces, and to hear him play something like Highland Cathedral can be extremely moving.’’ Squadron Leader Clarke said Sergeant Mansfield had to role of the Queen’s Piper on the last royal visit, played for the return of the unknown warrior and at Gallipoli on Anzac Day. Sergeant Mansfield’s appear- ance with the 60-piece military band is part of the North Island tour celebrating the 75th anni- versary of the RNZAF and the band. They will perform for school children and the public in Whanganui, Palmerston North, Dannevirke, Waipu- kurau, Napier and Wairoa. The performances will include ‘‘something for every- one’’, from classics and tra- ditional works to jazz and mod- ern hits, Squadron Leader Clarke said. ‘‘It will be a spectacular occasion with bagpipes, vocalists, saxophones, woodwind and drummers. ‘‘The band will also pay trib- ute to those who have served in the military. The tradition of a military band can evoke mem- ories and remembrances for past servicemen and women and their families.’’ The band performs on Tuesday, February 14 at Regent on Broadway, Palmerston North. 10 x 10 guitars for exhibition Ripe for plucking: Guitar enthusiasts soak up the thrill of last year’s guitar exhibition. Photo: MARK BRIMBLECOMBE By LAURA WALTERS A Whanganui pair are strum- ming up interest for a guitar exhibition to be held in Palmer- ston North this month. Jason Sad and Mark Brimb- lecombe will run Manawatu Guitars at Square Edge Gallery from February 11 to February 25 after a successful exhibition in Whanganui last year. Jason said he hoped they would have about 100 guitars at the exhibition. He will bring 40 from Whanganui, and hoped local guitar enthusiasts would con- tribute their guitars to the display. ‘‘We’ve been working on it for three or four years,’’ he said. The musician and guitar- lover said he hoped it would be as popular as the exhibition in Whanganui last year. ‘‘In two days we had 200 people through.’’ Mark Brimblecombe, who is also a Whanganui photogra- pher, put together a photo book of the exhibition featuring the guitars, and the events. The pair hoped to have enter- tainment at the Manawatu exhibition as well. There will be a guitar-making workshop with luthier Dave Pitt and possibly a drum work- shop. Jason will play during the exhibition and he hoped others would also volunteer. ❚ For more information or if have a guitar to display give Jason a call on 06 345 2354, or Mark on 06 345 0013.
