Photo: JOHN-PAUL POCHIN Kath just beeing herself Singer-songwriter Kath Bee and her band are performing at the Victory Community Cen- tre from 3pm this Sunday. The show is part of an eight-gig South Island tour dubbed Grandparents Rock. Kath said the concert was an invitation for children to bring their grandparents and even great-grandparents along. Kath's band includes herself on vocals/guitar, Melody White on bass and Rhys Clarke on drums. Kath has written a special song for grand- parents and will be giving away CDs and balloon flowers, courtesy of Flossie the Balloon Lady, who will also be making bee bracelets half an hour before and after the concert and selling them for a gold coin. Kath won the APRA/What Now Children's Video of the Year Award in 2010, has achieved several Pacific songwriting contest placings and was among the top 10 in the USA Songwriting Contest. She has four self-released CDs, Dragons Under My Bed, I've Got a Dinosaur in my Back- yard, Jump Up and Allsorts and is known best for her children's songs such as Individuality, Dad I Wanna Be a Camel, Seasons and Save the Planet. The South Island tour is part of a busy year for Kath as she is also planning to cycle around Vietnam in August to raise funds for the Variety Club. IN BRIEF Bigger hut on busy track An improved and larger Anchorage Hut is to be built on the Abel Tasman Coast Track to meet demand to stay in the popular Great Walk hut. It will be ready for use next summer. The 1970s-built hut is being removed to make way for the new hut so temporarily it will only be possible to camp at this bay from May 6 for around six months while the new hut is built. No hut accommodation will be available until the new hut opens in early November. Another option is to stay at Bark Bay Hut three to four hours' walk from Anchorage. Department of Conservation Motueka visitor assets programme manager Mark Townsend said the current 24-bunk Anchorage Hut was full around 140 nights a year, more than most DOC huts and the other three huts on the Abel Tasman Coast Track. ''The new hut will have 34 bunks, bringing it into line with the other two huts on the busiest section of the Abel Tasman Coast Track, south of Totaranui -- Bark Bay Hut which sleeps 34 and Awaroa Hut with 30 bunks.''
