Concerning the gift musical family —"the Kennedys"—who will open s »'two night season in Akaroa on Friday next, in the Oddfellows' Hall. The Wellington "Dominion said:— "The company forms one of the mn.t delightful musical combinations which has been heard in these parts. In a measure they remind one of the Mendel.sohn Quintet, which visited New Zealand many years ago.
