Shooglenifty was formed in 1990 by musicians from the Scottish Highlands, Orkney and Edinburgh, its bright spark was the idea of fusing traditional and traditional-sounding melodies with the beats and basslines of a mixed bag of more contemporary influences.

As happy playing a small highland village hall as they are on an outdoor festival stage playing to tens of thousands, the Shoogles (as they’re known to their fans) have promoted Scottish music all over the world for more nearly three decades. Their 2018 album, 'Written in Water', with Dhun Dhora, attracted five-star reviews and a coveted slot in music bible Mojo’s Top Ten Folk Albums of the Year. In 2019 Shooglenifty (with Tanxugueiras) released their timely humanitarian anthem 'East West' and are currently working hard on their ninth studio album slated for release in their 30th anniversary year: 2020. The Shoogles are delighted to be heading back to New Zealand after an absence of three years. Expect some electric new tunes and a full-on set of old favourites.

Bar open 7pm. Join the Kokomai team before the show for delicious food and wine. Please bring cash to purchase.
