The ODT Tussock Stage - Katie Thompson and Dollys

You’re invited to join us for a cosy afternoon at Gore’s Little Theatre, with entertainment by some of heartland Aotearoa’s best.


Katie Thompson

Katie Thompson is a versatile and prolific alt-country artist hailing from the West Coast. Her 3rd studio album “Bittersweet” saw her as a finalist for Best Country Song & Best Country Artist at the 2020 NZ Country Music Awards. This has solidified her position as a prominent figure in the New Zealand country music scene. 

Her accomplishments extend to her impressive stage presence, having opened for legendary artists such as Sir Elton John and recently captivating audiences as the opening act for Don McLean at the Christchurch Town Hall.


2023 Intermediate NZ Gold Guitar Winners, Dollys, are a group of talented young Southland performers with captivating harmonies and a stunning vocal blend. Maia Fletcher, Tahla Ward and Millie Cottam are influenced by both new and old country and have recently started their songwriting journey.


Initially united by their love for music, Dollys have developed a strong bond, both on and off the stage. Their shared passion and dedication resonates in every performance as they draw audiences in with their unique sound.

Highlights of their musical journey to date have been performing in Jenny Mitchell’s “Bush and Birds tour” in Invercargill and travelling to the Tamworth Country Music Festival where they performed at the NZ Showcase and Toyota Tailgate sessions.
