Don McGlashan wins Silver Scroll Award

21 September 2006 - 0 Comments

Don McGlashan has won New Zealand's most prestigious music award - the APRA Silver Scroll.

The award for the song ‘Bathe in the River’ was presented to Don by the Rt. Hon. Prime Minister Helen Clark at an exclusive ceremony, hosted by Marcus Lush, tonight at the Auckland Town Hall.

“Bathe in the River is an absolute classic. It’s a song that remains true to its soulful traditions and one that captures the hearts and emotions of everyone that hears it,” says APRA's Director of NZ Operations, Anthony Healey.

“It shows the wonderful talents of a fine songwriter...all Don's music is emotive and powerful and this song is no exception."

It’s the second time Don has won NZ’s pre-eminent song writing prize after winning in 1994 with ‘Anchor Me’. This year, Don was also nominated for his song ‘Miracle Sun’.

The four other finalist songs were -

Dann Hume, Jon Hume, Peter Hume (Evermore) – ‘Running’
James Milne (Lawrence Arabia and The Reduction Agents) – ‘The Pool’
Don McGlashan – ‘Miracle Sun’
Anika Moa– ‘Stolen Hill’
