“We like the sound of Stringed Things. Fiddles, mandolins, and steel guitars.”
Stringed Things – Rob Joass

Hobnail have journeyed far and wide in their 18 years of performing - trips which have seen them take their Kiwi flavoured songs and stories not only all over New Zealand, but also to the United states, Canada, Ireland and Europe.

Festival favourites around New Zealand, their live performance has been variously described as “spellbinding”, “captivating”, “incendiary”, “rousing” and “highly spirited and entertaining”. They have featured at Sounds'n'Nature at Raumati, Tauranga’s Blues, Brews and BBQ’s Festival,the Hokonui Moonshine Festival in Gore, Taranaki’s Festival of Lights, The Wellington International Festival of the Arts, Masterton’s Golden Shears, the Foxton Easter Festival, The Festival of the Elements in Porirua, The Huntaway Festival at Hunterville, and the Nelson School of Music Winter Festival. The Hobnail Boots have also made appearances on T.V.’s Good Morning and National Radios Friday afternoon Live show with Wayne Mowatt.

Featuring “Jo Moir’s barnstorming fiddle”, the award winning songwriting of Rob Joass, spectacular harmonies, and over 100 years of collective performance experience, The Hobnail Boots live show is one not to be missed.

“When The Hobnail Boots take the stage, they tear into their set with mucho gusto, injecting volume and energy into the evening with their illustrious blend of bluegrass, Celtic folk, pop, and rock’n’roll”.
-Nelson Mail
