Good Habits (alt-folk duo) Homecoming + ‘Antipode’ Album Release Tour

29 October @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm


Described as “engagingly clear across a rich variety of styles” (Songlines), Good Habits are a UK alt-folk duo, telling stories and turning heads across the globe. Composed of singer-cellist Bonnie Schwarz and accordionist Pete Shaw, the duo create folk-ish musical tales, with captivating lyrics married with their unique brand of brisk instrumental virtuosity.

Amanda Palmer (Dresden Dolls) says “Good habits wrap darkly witty lyrics in a delightfully old-world package that crash together the timeless sounds of cellos and accordions with knowing and warm vocals that make you want to wrap this little duo band around you like an old blanket.”

October sees the return home after 2 years spent ‘happily stranded’ in New Zealand because of the pandemic. Good Habits have performed alongside the country’s top acts including Nadia ReidRia Hall and Lost Tribe Aotearoa, and won the Purbeck Folk Rising Award 2020. Debut album Going For Broke received glowing press in Songlines and the New Zealand Herald, and their hectic tour schedule has included performances at New Zealand’s largest festivals, including CubaDupa, TSB Festival of Lights, Luminate and countless other independent venues.

As they return, they will appear at Manchester Folk Festival, Purbeck Valley Folk Festival and will be releasing their album Antipody [noun: the experience of existing at the polar opposite location to your home], a collection of uniquely personal musical stories informed by the valuable life lessons their mad experience has offered.

“Revved up folkies with great energy and spirit” – 13th Floor (★★★★★)

“Wonderfully quirky and exceptionally talented” – Unheard NZ
