Melbourne's The Maes Touring New Zealand In December

C.C. / Thursday 3rd October, 2019 11:59AM

Melbourne contemporary folk duo The Maes are returning to our shores this December, to play a seven date whirlwind summer tour of Aotearoa. Last here in January for the 2019 Auckland Folk Festival, the award-winning sibling team of Maggie and Elsie Rigby have since unveiled their very well received, self-titled third studio album. The well-travelled pair will be joined at their South Island events by songwriter Holly Arrowsmith, who is currently touring with Amiria Grenell as Coyote (not to be confused with Dunedin's Coyote). Take in the details for The Maes' summer shows right here...
