Now – as you probably know, as well as the usual platforms (this site, soundcloud, iTunes/Apple) you can now get to Sweetman Podcast on Spotify – follow it there and have it saved in your Spotify library.
Meg Williams is the Executive Director of Tawhiri (Lexus Song Quest, Wellington’s Jazz Festival, Second Unit and The NZ Festival). This year’s NZ Festival runs from February 21 – March 15. But this conversation wasn’t just about plugging the event and talking through the line-up (I did that recently with Marnie Karmelita – so click that link to check out that conversation). This was a chance to find out about Meg, her involvement not just with this festival but her background in the arts.
I’ve known Meg for around a decade – she was in marketing for the NZ Festival and Jazz Festival when I first had a meeting with her; she got me one of the very best interviews of my career.
But she grew up in the UK so there was a whole story around playing in bands, traveling to see gigs and volunteering at shows in Europe that I didn’t know about. Now I do. And you will too.
I loved having this chat with Meg, getting to know her better – and of course connecting further with somebody who shares a great passion for music and the arts.
We recorded this conversation late last year and now’s the time to share it with the Festival nearly upon us. (This is the last conversation recorded from 2019).
