Great North are celebrating their second Tui award win by hitting the road with The Bads and Brendan and Alison Turner for a nationwide tour that kind of doubles as a couples retreat.

The band took out the Best Folk Album Tui for their 2014 record Up In Smoke in January, after winning the same award for Halves in 2013. They are following their latest win with a 12-date tour that criss-crosses the country from Whangarei to Dunedin. It includes their first ever shows in Queenstown, Nelson, Whanganui, Featherston and Whangarei.

Every group on tour is fronted by a couple. “We didn’t mean for this to happen. It just did,” Great North frontman Hayden Donnell says. “And when it’s right, it’s right.” The romantic pairings will be mingling on stage: Brendan Turner shows up on double bass for The Bads and Great North, while Brett Adams’ incomparable guitar and mandolin playing will feature in Great North’s sets. Only pedal steel player Matthew Hutching is not currently dating a member of the tour party.
