Folk tour hits Hamil­ton

Hamilton Press - - OUT & ABOUT - EN­TER­TAIN­MENT

There’ll be more than just toe tap­ping this Fri­day night as Albi and The Wolves are set to take their na­tional tour to Hamil­ton.

As part of the 15 show tour across the coun­try, Hamil­ton’s own Look­ing For Alaska joined the Widen­ing Habits Tour in North­land ear­lier this month and are now back on their home turf.

The pop-folk duo Aaron Gott and Amy May­nard are com­ple­mented by a four-piece band made up of acous­tic gui­tar, elec­tric gui­tar, bass and drums.

The two come to­gether to fea­ture some truly unique folk mu­sic, pre­sent­ing it in a cap­ti­vat­ing way.

‘‘Both bands have a mix of really high en­ergy songs and slower, more touch­ing songs, so the crowd can def­i­nitely ex­pect to be taken on a bit of a jour­ney,’’ Gott said. Whilst fans can en­joy some fa­mil­iar tunes, the stage will also be set to show­case new ma­te­rial.

‘‘The tour has been really fun so far, these shows are pretty spe­cial as both Look­ing For Alaska and Albi and The Wolves are cur­rently writ­ing our next al­bums so we’ve been play­ing heaps of brand new songs, try­ing really ex­cit­ing new things with our sets and just hav­ing heaps of fun.’’

Novem­ber 17, Ni­vara Lounge, 8:30pm. Pre-sale tick­ets are $15 from or $20 door sales.
