Tess Liautaud - Gold Digger Tour

Tour Information
Bad Gin Sanctuary Presents
The Gold Digger Tour!

In celebration of her new single Tess Liautaud and her band are setting out on a huge 12 date tour of Aotearoa.

Support at The Grainstore Gallery from Jessie Shanks

The recipe for any country hit worth its weight is a catchy hook and a healthy measure of wry wit, served up with swagger and aplomb.
Liautaud wrote Gold Digger in Otago while imagining a song that John Prine might sing, and though the result is uniquely her own, there is a through-line; honest truths cloaked in humorous word play and a simple melody.
After releasing her debut album in 2022, Gold Digger is bursting with crunchy guitars and that Americana feel-good delivery, a taste of things to come.

Hitting the stage first on the night will be Jessie Shanks.

Having traversed the countryside for the last fifteen years in New Zealand’s hardest working band The Eastern, Jessie Shanks is a renowned guitar picking, banjo frailing, foot stomper with a sweet southern voice and a raft of songs built from years on the road. Shanks has cultivated her own unique approach to roots music, performing haunting contemporary folk tunes steeped in time and place and woven from her countless travels.

Make sure to catch Tess and the band in a town near you.
