A very special evening of trade folk and Americana, a double bill featuring Auckland's Project Albatross and Wellington's own Cotton Daisy Backstep.

Project Albatross are three musicians from various backgrounds collaborating to explore new pathways into traditional folk music genres. Guitarist Caleb Chia, fiddler Louise Evans and renowned Swedish folk saxophonist Hanna Wiskari Griffiths delve into Scandinavian, Canadian and Celtic styles. Lively, infectious interpretations of both old and contemporary tunes and songs of these traditions are delivered with high energy and flair.

Cotton Daisy Backstep plays the old ‘hillbilly’ music of the Appalachian Mountains of America. Helena Faust, Naomi Middleton, Ed Abraham and Nick Bollinger play songs of the pioneers, shotgun totin’ badasses, sweet Cindy's and tub-thumping dance tunes to lift the spirits of the underprivileged and downtrodden. On banjo, guitar, double bass and fiddle, their music evokes that old 78 bacon-frying sound no book-learning can give you; this is the very roots of Americana.
