Good Habits – Folk-fusion from the UK
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.
In the past year, after leaving NZ, Good Habits have performed at world famous festivals around Europe including Glastonbury (UK), Elfia (NL) and Cambridge Folk Festival (UK), to name a few.
Their award-winning, genre-fusing sound has received international critical acclaim in the short 4 years they have been performing. 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.
Whilst ‘happily stranded’ in Aotearoa over 2020+21 due to the pandemic, their touring in NZ was nonstop, including performances at the country’s biggest festivals: Cuba Dupa, NZ Festival of Lights, and Lunasa.
Their “captivating” debut album, “Going For Broke”, recorded in Paekakariki, received glowing international coverage with FRUK describing their breath-taking live shows as “impossible to resist”.
