Great North is a band that has been at the heart of New Zealand’s folk scene for many years – and they have two album of the year trophies from the annual New Zealand music awards to prove it. This tour sees Great North travelling without the whole band and instead as a duo featuring the two main singers and songwriters: Hayden and Rachel Donnell. This husband and wife duo will be performing acoustic versions of their old material and off their upcoming new record.
A native of East Sussex, Natalie Bouloudis first got her musical education in childhood, having played clarinet in jazz bands and had a few guitar lessons at school. From the age of seven she started writing her own music and has been (till recently) a secret songwriter ever since. Having lived in London for the better part of the last decade, she decided four years ago to launch her music into the public sphere under the name Aurora Harbinger. She soon played venues like Servant Jazz Quarters and The Victoria in Dalston, quickly building a loyal fan base that enabled her to successfully crowd fund her debut record. More recently, she played support for Florence + the Machine at the Dulwich Pavilion launch as part of London Festival of Architecture.
