- This Saturday 27th August is my lastFolk at the Old Folks show. We've loved putting on these shows, right from the beginning with our Sunday afternoon folk club in 2014/2015. And this Winter Series has been a blast but it's time to take a break from it, so if you haven't come along yet, do it! We promise you'll enjoy yourself, and rumour has it the ceiling may have been painted by now!
Here's your link for tickets, and they are going fast! There's limited $10 presales before it's $15 on the door!
News, bits and bobs:
- We really likeJesse Sheehan's new album. We know people who rate him very highly as one of New Zealand's best songwriters. He may not be based here at the moment, but we're not letting London snap him up. Oh, and Neil Finn produced and played on the album. Talk about a name drop.
- Stretch is excited. He's opening for Henry Wagons on Friday 16th September. Dang. Good job man. We just spoke with Henry today actually, so stay tuned for a follow up interview to our first one last year!
- Looking for Alaska got into the studio last month and they've got a sneaky first single coming out this weekend, August 27th! Go check it out on Saturday, before you come to the Auckland Old Folks Ass.
Upcoming shows to watch out for:
- The Remarkables are playing a couple of shows in the next month in Auckland. Corelli's Restaurant in Devonport welcomes them on Tuesday 6th September and then the Auckland Bluegrass Club up at the Bunker sees the Remarkables on 12th October.
- Bunker Hill Unplugged is back for the month! Sunday night, from 8pm at the Bunker. Featuring this month, Mahoney Harris, Echo Children, Martha Louise, Mojo Crow.
- Kingsland Folk Club returns this Sunday from 6-8pm at Flight 605 in Morningside. We love this club and we haven't been as much as we'd like, so go along and get a drink for us. Hopefully we'll see you there this weekend.
We actually just got sent this album a few weeks ago, so it's a new one into our collection. We've been loving it. A mixture of bluegrass, good old Americana and a touch of folk punk it's right up our alley. The banjo of Scorch himself alongside fiddle, some horn, some accordion and an array of all sorts of interesting instruments really draws you in. Highly recommend.
