SHARE

Oamaru teen musician Joseph Balfe hit the right notes at the NZ Gold Guitar Awards last weekend and took home the intermediate overall winner award.

Joseph, who turns 16 next week, also received the intermediate instrumental section during the competition, which is held in Gore.

The Waitaki Boys’ High School student said he found the competition really full-on but was pleased to have won the overall award as it was what he had hoped for.
