Good Habits are an eclectic indie-folk duo from Manchester, UK formed of Singer-Cellist and Songwriter Bonnie Schwarz & international Klezmer accordionist, Pete Shaw.
Fusing folk and jazz within their original songwriting, the eclectic duo present an upbeat yet intimate sound-world of musical storytelling.
As an award winning composer and sound designer, Bonnie has worked with Manchester and London’s most established theatres, creating new and innovative sonic experiences.
Pete is an experienced performer who bases his style around many different folk influences; from Irish to Klezmer, Pete has performed around Europe and the United States of America.
They were touring in New Zealand before the Covid-19 lockdown and have extended their visit to NZ until it is safe to go home again.
