They pack punches but bring songs to heal the scars. Lindsay Martin’s masterful strings and vocals meet Victoria Vigenser’s magnificent voice, in driving rhythms and a connection, you have to hear to believe. This captivating trans-Tasman duo brings music that strangely sounds like more than the sum of its parts.
Joining them this September are two powerhouses of folk, Zena Armstrong with her grounding percussion or soaring whistles and Peter Logue with his particularly sensitive accordion accompaniment. This exclusive lineup is not to be missed. With echoes of soulful Americana and Celtic roots in the gritty, evocative material, its award-winning musicianship is wrapped in a trademark tightness.
They have already made a bold mark in folk circles worldwide, recently showcasing at Folk Alliance International, being nominated “Best Folk Artist” in the 2022 Aotearoa (NZ) Music Awards, nominated Australian Folk Music Awards “Artists of the Year, Best Duo/Group/Ensemble” 2021 and receiving the 2020 Troubadour Foundation Award. Now touring the duo’s debut “Grief’s a Gardener”, they bring connected and grounding original songs in the sort of show that can melt even the hardest of hearts.
