Gig Information

Two UK folk-fusion duos, both on tours in Aotearoa, combine for a series of double bill concerts!

GOOD HABITS:
After two years of the formative pandemic spent ‘happily stranded’ on tour in New Zealand, Good Habits return to their Antipodean second home for a mighty tour that includes WOMAD, Port Fairy Festival, and supporting Tiki Taane (Trio’s Garden Bar, Rarotonga), in anticipation of their new album release “Quarter-Life”, due out in May 2024.
Good Habits’ award-winning, genre-fusing sound has received international critical acclaim in the short 3 years they have been performing, resulting in performances at Glastonbury, and other major festivals around the world. In 2020-2021 they: performed in NZ at CubaDupa and TSB Festival of Lights; played over 150 gigs around the country; and recorded their last album “Antipody”.

Composed of Bonnie Schwarz (cello + vocals) and Pete Shaw (accordion), the pair mix virtuosic musicianship and vocal harmony with vivid storytelling, drawing on their diverse musical tastes and weaving them into an action-packed narrative of folky goodness. After a pandemic spent happily stranded in New Zealand, they returned back to the UK to spread their joyous music throughout Europe.

MISHRA are a global folk collective with strong roots in UK folk, out of which they weave a tight web of intricate, Indian-influenced original music that defies definition and has brought them awards recognition since their formation in 2017. For this intimate show, Mishra perform as a duo of core musicians Kate Griffin (The Magpies) on vocals, banjo, and dobro and Ford Collier (BBC R2 Folk Award nominated The Drystones) on low whistle, calabash/percussion, and guitar are the song writing partnership behind Mishra, drawing on their unique base of influences that encompasses folk music of the UK and America, Indian classical music, and soul to create a surprisingly accessible sound that audiences instantly connect to.
