Brendan Christie

The 2019 Dunedin Public Libraries Citation recipient was teacher and musician, Brendan Christie.
The award was presented by Cr Marie Laufiso at the annual volunteers' morning tea in recognition of his role as co-ordinator of the Libraries’ Nook & Cranny Music Festival.

The Nook & Cranny Music Festival has grown hugely in popularity and attendance over the years. We are very grateful for Brendan’s tireless support in bringing free live music performances to the community, raising the profile of local musicians and songwriters, film-makers and photographers, and for giving new performers the courage to take the stage for the first time in a public venue.
