To make their farewell tour extra special, nomadic duo Good Habits (UK) are joined by singer-songwriter Jenny Mitchell (NZ) to share their musical stories in a series of intimate concerts. With a shared love for storytelling, and musical travels, Good Habits and Jenny bring you their collaboration: songs of crossed paths, treasured stories and human connection.

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

Good Habits’ Bonnie and Pete found themselves ‘happily stranded’ in New Zealand during Covid-19.
As the lucky English musos who got to continue playing, they filled their year since with music and adventure. The duo will return to the UK in October, and so are setting off on their biggest tour yet, to sing their dearest thank yous and fondest goodbyes (for now).

In the past year, 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.

Jenny Mitchell is an alt-country/folk storyteller with songs wrapped in wisdom and wit. Her 2018 record Wildfires, produced by Sydney’s Matt Fell, was awarded the 2019 Tui for Recorded Music NZ Best Country Music Artist. Following her first Tui, the album became the first NZ album to receive a nomination for Alt-Country Album of the Year at the 2020 Australian Golden Guitar Awards. Described by Jesse Mulligan (RNZ) as an unapologetically country artist going from strength to strength, Jenny has graced dozens of festival stages including Australia’s Maldon Folk Festival, Nannup Festival and, of course, the Tamworth Country Music Festival. At home in NZ she’s been on the Canterbury and Wellington Folk Festival bill and was a guest on the 2019 Southern Fork Americana Fest lineup.

Good Habits' songwriting workshop:
Learn how to stretch and expand your songwriting with Bonnie
Whether you’re a seasoned songwriter or are looking to put pen to paper for the first time, come along for a conceptual sharing that will help us all grow as creators. As always, there is no wrong or right so it will be less of a ‘how to’ and more of a group creation workshop, so bring your brains and instruments (if you like) for some music making!
