Folk tour hits Hamilton
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 eventfinda.co.nz or $20 door sales.
