“Life is sometimes a hard wake-up call, having so much to juggle and to come out the other end with an album full of stories to be told, I’m very proud. I’m standing by all of this, as this is what has made Betty.”

Betty comes with a lot of energy, aroha and wairua and was not without some of life’s hurdles. This show marks the beginning of Ainslie’s album release tour, which will see her play shows across Aotearoa.
