The Great Southern Songbook Folk Review is a local initiative set up by Into The East's Liv McBride & Graeme Woller, aimed at bringing independent talent from around New Zealand to Southland in a relaxed setting.
This month GSS Folk Review is being held at the iconic Cheeky Llama Café. Situated in the heart of Queens Park, the evening will boast an impressive 4 acts from Auckland, Wellington & of course, Invercargill!

A full bar and light meals/desserts will be available.

Luckless & Pales
Following up a critically acclaimed sophomore album ‘Vindication Blues’, Luckless, the project of songwriter Ivy Rossiter, will be touring solo throughout the country this November, arm-in-arm with Wellington folk trio Pales.

After the celebrated ‘Vindication Blues’ tour took a four-piece Luckless band through the country’s largest centers in July of 2014, this November tour offers audiences the chance to experience the more introspective, reflective solo side of Luckless. Wrangling a 1964 Silvertone electric guitar and a loop station, Rossiter conjures the ethereal and elusive, and has been lauded by critics throughout the country as a unique, rich and powerful independent voice.

Pales brings together Scott Maynard, Mike Isaacs and Rose Blake, a trio of musicians from Wellington’s oft- collaborative folk scene, replete with credits from many other musical endeavours under their collective belts. Armed with banjos, guitars and three angelic voices, Pales will be performing brand new material throughout the tour in anticipation of their imminent follow-up to their 2013 debut ‘It’s Cold Outside’. Their combination of sophisticated and challenging songwriting with three-part vocal harmony promises to melt even the stoniest of souls.

Into the East
A festival favourite, Into The East have been relentlessly touring New Zealand since the release of their debut album Fight From The Inside in 2013. Their music has been described as Fleetwood Mac with the harmonic & poetic charm of Simon & Garfunkel. Their Americana influenced Alt. Folk/Country sound has earned them several accolades including NZCMA Group/Duo of The Year, Southland Band Of The Year, APRA Southland Album of The Year & a nomination for Best NZ Folk Album at the NZ Music Awards.

Between these acoustic reveries of Pales, the dynamic vocals and sculpted loops of Luckless & the crystalline harmonies of Into The East, the GSS Folk Review offers the chance to experience the enchanting and challenging music being created outside of the mainstream today.

The show is supported by local singer/songwriter Amy McLean. Amy is a new force on the Invercargill scene. Her voice will melt you down.
