Irish band The Young Folk are returning to New Zealand, in response to the success of their 2018 NZ
Hailing from Dublin, The Young Folk marry traditional acoustic instrumentation and vocal harmonies
with contemporary production techniques resulting in a sound which has been compared with Fleet
Foxes, Bon Iver and Crosby Stills & Nash. “One of the most promising young bands to come out of
Ireland in several decades” (Maverick Magazine).
The Young Folk consists of Anthony Furey (vocals/guitar) and Paul Butler (vocals/piano/synth), both
songwriters of exceptional talent. The duo are joined by New Zealander Alex Borwick
(trombone/synth/percussion/banjo/vocals) and Marc Aubele (bass/mandolin/vocals) for their live shows, enabling The Young Folk to fully flex their musical muscle.
Alex has been based in Dublin for 6 years where he works as a producer/recording engineer at the worldrenowned Grouse Lodge Recording Studios, as well as playing in a variety of touring bands.
