Lhasa w/ George After James

Indie folk duo Lhasa are going on an NZ North Island tour in support of their debut EP, Birdsong!

Lhasa are the result of two completely different worlds colliding. One from a sleepy, small city in New Zealand, while the other grew up in one of the biggest cities in China. Like the coming together of two completely different lives, their music is a combination of an organic acoustic sound and a penchant for rock music. Their striking harmonies and poetic songwriting provide an immersive, emotional experience. Inspiration is drawn from tales of love and loss, life's longings, friendships, and disappointments. The songs were written in the midst of navigating evolving relationships, leaving childhood, and settling into new environments.

ENTRY: Tickets $11 available HERE or at Globe Box Office. Door sales $17.

Les Poules a Colin pushes further the exploration of alloys between Quebec folk and the mix of indie, jazzy, pop, bluegrass and contemporary styles. They immerse us in their universe through original compositions, sophisticated arrangements, harmonic progressions and reinvented traditions. The bi-lingual band injects exuberant color into the folk traditions of Canada, Quebec and Appalachian heritage, taking the roots that they have grown from and spinning their foundations into movement. The result is a mature, well-controlled music filled with emotion and surprising freshness relevant in today's shifting climates.

Richie & Rosie

Banjo player Richie Stearns and fiddler Rosie Newton grew up 150 miles and a few decades apart, but the fated combination of their unique skill, varied musical influence, and honest storytelling comes together to achieve their common goal: to create music that people can connect with. Richie & Rosie's paths crossed in the Ithaca old-time scene during Rosie's freshman year, Richie & Rosie began touring together as members of the Evil City String Band, and were eventually drawn to persue this more intimate duo project. Their music finds itself at a junction of Americana, old-time, and folk, bringing a new sound to traditional music with their signature trance-like, boundary pushing instrumental arrangements and angelic harmonies. As two musicians in two very different parts of life, Richie & Rosie are proof of two things: the power and magic of two people making music, and that the universal messages that lie within their songs remain timeless.

The East Pointers - Yours to Break Tour with Special Guest Lucy Farrell

The East Pointers have always been musically complex and technically brilliant, the core is definitely traditional Celtic, but on the new album, fiddle tunes are grounded in complex rumbling bass lines, a dirty Americana exploration turns on a dime into a lighthearted guitar feature with flamenco reference palmas, playful keyboard tones turn traditional solos into urgent dance-party journeys, and off-the-leash festival jam sessions give rise to vocal numbers that are either perfect pop songs or moving tributes to the home and people they love. Redefining the ever-evolving genre – modern folk – with Billboard-worthy pop hooks, deep acoustic groove, trance-like trad breakdowns and three-part harmonies, Tim Chaisson (vocals/fiddle/percussion), Koady Chaisson (banjo/tenor guitar/moog) and Jake Charron (guitar/keyboards), already internationally acknowledged as musical trailblazers, have made sure their new album Yours To Break (out now) will light a path for a new generation of music lovers who don’t care for labels.

What We Leave Behind was one of the international standout albums of 2017, nominated for the Traditional Roots Album of the Year at the 2018 JUNO Awards and attracting over four million streams on Spotify. In the short time between their 2015 JUNO Award-winning debut Secret Victory and the upcoming Yours To Break, the band has performed over 450 shows in Australia, New Zealand, Japan, the UK, Europe, Mexico, the USA, and Canada.

This is an event not to be missed!
