Home is Where the HeART Is Tour:
A multimedia show combining live music, storytelling and improvised visual art. A celebration of Music and Art as precious tools for (self-)exploration, integration, healing and generating joy across cultures, generations, kilometres or beliefs. Here's hoping the weather cooperates and word-of-mouth works its magic to fill our shows with friendly music, travel, food and art enthusiasts of all sorts.

SONIA AND NIGEL are a multi-cultural acoustic duo featuring French-American Paris-born Sonia Wilson on vocals & ukulele and Kiwi-American virtuoso musician Nigel Gavin on 7-string guitar. After meeting and playing together for the first time at the Whare Flat Folk festival in Dunedin during Sonia’s first visit to New Zealand on a solo round-the-world trip in December 2014, the pair have since become a well-loved duo in the New Zealand folk music scene. They weave French, Kiwi and American songs with their own original compositions and inspiration from their travels around the world.

Sonia Wilson is a living, breathing human Womad Festival. Born and raised in Paris, UK-educated and now based in Auckland, the Franco-American singer, songwriter and musician had a dizzying musical apprenticeship. A member of both gospel and Acapella choirs from a young age, her music has taken her from the streets of Paris, across the Kenyan savannah, through remote Himalayan villages, and then ’home’ to New Zealand. When she’s not performing, Sonia teaches, offering classes in individual and group ukulele, guitar and vocals. (Peter Malcouronne, Ockham Collective)

Nigel Gavin is a multi award winning musician. Initially a visitor from Long Island, New York, now a resident, Nigel has long been a featured player in New Zealand’s music scene, playing
7 string guitar, banjo, mandolin, bass - indeed, almost anything with strings - with the Nairobi Trio, the Fondue Set, the Jews Brothers, the Blue Bottom Stompers, Lorina Harding, Wayne Gillespie, Whirimako Black, Jonathan Besser & Bravura among others. He has also found time to create and mentor the multi-guitar ensemble Gitbox Rebellion. Gavin is a guitarist with remarkable versatility who is respected by other players around the world, and who excites audiences with jaw-dropping solos. He continues to work internationally in New Zealand, Europe, Australia and the United States.
