Tweed is an Auckland-based alternative folk band. Tweed has a harmony-rich vintage sound reminiscent of the Beach Boys, Crosby, Stills & Nash, and Joni Mitchell, and cites the Punch Brothers, Joan Armatrading, and Ani diFranco as main influences. The band have a distinctive style of catchy melodies, poly-rhythms, and tight-knit, complex vocal harmonies. Tweed play widely in folk clubs and music venues around Auckland and have carved a niche within the city’s burgeoning youth folk scene, opening the 2016 Auckland Folk Festival. http://www.tweed-nz.com/
Miss Peach and the Travellin’ Bones tell tales of love, loss and intrigue. This dark alternative folk band draw influences from minstrels and storytellers of old. Miss Peach narrates complex characters and adventure into her songs. The Travellin’ Bones consist of Sarah Spurs on double bass, Glorit on drums and Pearl on violin. Each coming from wildly different musical backgrounds, they incorporate the styles of jazz, classical and rock music into Miss Peach’s songs to create the unique blend of sound that is Miss Peach and The Travellin’ Bones. Their new album, “Sand” is scheduled for release 27 January 2017.
