We welcome New Zealand folk artists Great North for an evening of excellent music at the Hinckley ACT.
Great North play folk music with a bit of Bruce Springsteen-inspired Americana thrown in. Over the last eight years, they’ve cemented themselves as one of New Zealand’s hardest-working and most accomplished independent acts, playing gigs in bars, halls and tin sheds from Auckland to Okarito.
Between shows, they released three albums, two of which – 2012’s Halves and 2014’s Up In Smoke – won Folk Album of the Year at the New Zealand Music Awards.
The band, which is centred around husband-and-wife duo Hayden and Rachel Donnell, recently travelled to the United Kingdom in search of larger sheds in which to perform. Their live show is filled with the usual stuff: regret, nostalgia, faith, and love – all set to harmony and harmonica.
