Invitation to Williams Exhibition...

On Monday, September 16 at 10.30 am Wellington Central Library will be opening a special display celebrating the life of Pixie Costello (nee Williams’) who died on 2 August 2013.

Pixie Williams gave voice to one of the most enduring popular melodies of the twentieth century - Ruru Karaitaina’s - Blue Smoke’. Recorded in 1948, it was the first song wholly written, produced and recorded in New Zealand and went onto become a No. 1 hit topping the NZ charts for 6 weeks and selling 50,000 albums.  Pixie went on to record 12 other songs including ‘Let’s Talk it Over’ which was another hit selling 20,000 albums.

In 2011, at the launch of her remastered album ‘For the Record: The Pixie Williams Collection 1949 - 1951’ Pixie was awarded a Triple Platinum award for Blue Smoke and a Single Platinum Award for Let’s Talk it Over. 

Open for four weeks - you are welcome to come to the library to join in the opening and view photographs, instruments, albums and taonga belonging to Pixie Williams.

Also available for review will be Chris Bourke’s book The Lost Dawn of NZ Popular Music 1918-1964 which details the story of the making of “ Blue Smoke.”
