Come and celebrate New Zealand Music Month at Toitu Otago Settlers Museum, with live music every Saturday in May!
Lara is from a long line of long legs. Jack is an extension of generations of long necks. Together, with their long limbs and swirling harmonies, they are Tall Folk. As a US-American import, Jack brings song-writing and Midwestern twang hardened in Americana tradition. Lara softens and juxtaposes the raspy edges with warm, resonant harmonies established through years embedded in the Dunedin folk scene. From the comparatively upper stratospheres of human heights, they write from a bird’s eye view of political and social turmoil, lined with remnants of the goodness that keeps us all moving. Coming in June, their debut EP - recorded live in a Southland bach hearkening back to the 1970's - will be released. Think a Guthrie-inspired young Prine laced with the grace of Gillian Welch. Just a bit taller.
