9:15- Good Habits
Good Habits are a UK alt-folk duo, telling stories and turning heads across the globe.
Composed of singer-cellist Bonnie Schwarz and accordionist Pete Shaw, they create folk-infused songs that test the limits of their traditional instruments; maintaining folk roots of musical storytelling amongst their energetic, virtuosic playing.
"The duo are musical tricksters. There's a rare emotional warmth and fullness to Good Habits' sound..’’ Songlines
“Wonderfully Quirky and Exceptionally Talented” - Unheard NZ
Covid-19 saw them 'stranded' in New Zealand whilst on tour. In the year since, Good Habits have performed alongside a line up of New Zealand’s top acts including Nadia Reid, Ria Hall and Lost Tribe Aotearoa and were winners of Purbeck Folk Rising Award. The release of their debut album, ‘Going For Broke’, gained them shining reviews in Songlines, appearances in National Paper NZ Herald, and a tight tour schedule including performances at New Zealand’s largest festivals: Splore, TSB Festival of Lights, Resolution and many more.
After an exhilarating run of their Gig-theatre show ‘I Don’t Know How To Dance’ at the NZ fringe, Good Habits head up the North Island, for a warm autumn return to some of the venues from their original 2020 Sumer tour pre-covid.
