Inspired by Toitu's "Robbie Rocks Dunedin" contest (http://www.toituosm.com/visit/whats-on/robbie-rocks-dunedin-2015), Austrian label Zelle Records got the idea to release a record of Robert Burns songs recorded by present-day Dunedinites.
Zelle Records was simply overwhelmed by the large number of positive reactions from musicians presently living in or with a biographical connection with Dunedin, and even though the record project and the Toitu contest are not intrinsically connected, Toitu Museum supports it.
The label is hoping to be able to get more "Robbie Rocks Dunedin" contestants involved in the future and looks forward to the winners of the next competition being announced on the great Scottish bard's birthday, January 25. After all, "Ae Fond Kiss" is not supposed to be a "Dunedin Sound" reunion record.
