Top New Zealand artists, Suzanne Lynch and Graham Wardrop headlined the inaugural Flaxwood Festival (originally called Flaxton Festival - the name was changed in perpetual honour of Murray Wood, the Festival's musical director, who tragically lost his life in the CTV building in central Christchurch, as a result of the February 22nd 2011 earthquake.  Suzanne and Graham were backed by The Flaxwood Shadows (a hand-picked group especially assembled for the festival).  The Woolston Brass was also in attandance as a major attraction and they delivered a wide range of musical gems including some stirring military music in traditional style.  Flaxwood Festival 2011 was eventually held on Sunday April 03rd at the original Flaxton Road (Rangiora) venue, raising more than $40,000.00 for the supported charities  —  Woolston Brass ($16,036.27), Christchurch City Mission ($16,036.27), The One-2-One Charitable Trust ($8,018.14)
