In 2019 Hobnail will be celebrating 25 years of touring far, wide, and tirelessly throughout New Zealand. To mark the occasion they are embarking on a national tour and releasing a “Best Of” album showcasing tracks taken from their 7 studio albums as well as their contribution to 2019 NZ Music Month, a cover of the Coconut Rough classic Sierra Leone.
“Highly spirited and entertaining… an illustrious fusion of bluegrass, celtic, folk, pop, and rock’n’roll.” - Stewart Hunt, Nelson Mail
Hobnail has won considerable acclaim over their career, having headlined everywhere from Canada to Norfolk Island, Auckland to Gore, and racking up several New Zealand Music award nominations in the process.
They are 3-time finalists at the New Zealand Music Awards (Best Folk Album and Best Country Song twice).
"Refreshingly down-to-earth and lovely with vocals so tightly knit they could be family." - Mike Alexander, NZ Herald
With “Jo Moir's barnstorming fiddle”, great songs and spectacular harmonies, Hobnail's live show will make your feet move and your heart sing.
