Join us for a Sunday afternoon with Hobnail Trio, a New Zealand institution who combine folk, celtic and country influences with superb musicianship and songwriting.
Since forming 27 years ago, the band has made their way through marriages, divorces, growing families, seven albums, more than 1,000 shows, hundreds of flights and trips across Cook Strait, and somewhere north of 250,000 km in the tour van.
They've played from Nelson to Norfolk Island, Auckland to Amsterdam, Banff to Balcairn.
In 2019 they celebrated their 25th anniversary with a 5 star "Best Of" album (music.net.nz) and a national tour that saw them playing to full houses all over the country. Their music is described as, "Refreshingly down-to-earth and lovely with vocals, so tightly knit they could be family."
The Last Church in Apiti is a unique and intimate venue in a lovingly restored 120-year-old church. Seating just 50 people, you can enjoy and experience live music in a setting like no other in the lower North Island. Come early or stay late to enjoy the delicious food and drink at the Āpiti Tavern, just a short walk away. Āpiti village is a scenic 50 minute drive from Palmerston North and 30 minutes from Feilding.
