A special double bill featuring two exciting acts from New Zealand: Country-folk singer-songwriter WILL WOOD + winners of the New Zealand folk awards 2015, GREAT NORTH.
WILL WOOD is a touring musician from Auckland, New Zealand playing country and folk music in the style of the old-time greats such as Woody Guthrie and Johnny Cash. His songs tell stories that come from his life as a travelling musician playing concerts all over the world, mixing heartbreak and adventure with large helpings of Whisky. He has performed in over 20 countries and has supported great acts such as The Handsome Family, Shakey Graves, JD McPherson and Mick Harvey.

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.
