An extravaganza concert night to celebrate the achievements of the festival collaborations with the Festival Choir, the Youth Band and Ukulele Workshops each sharing two songs that they have developed over the weekend. Originality and enthusiasm assured.

Then we are treated to four of our stunning guest artists as they take the stage and share their passion and craft for music and performance. The night will be compered by local stand up comedian Big Jimmy Small, so entertainment from start to finish of this concert guaranteed.

Angelfish (Anne McMahon, Rachel Bayliss & Sarah Templeton)
Angelfish are a ukulele playing trio of singer / songwriters based in Christchurch. We met while studying at ARA in 2017 and have been laughing and playing together ever since. Coming from distinct musical backgrounds, our originals cover a wide range of genres and themes spanning the great distance between dinosaurs and drag queens, heartbreak and climate change.
We enjoy performing together and have become known for our fancy harmonies and “delightful” (silly) sense of humour. We are really looking forward to sharing our songs with you at the Canterbury Folk Festival 2020.

Olivia Wilson with Liz Braggins
As the daughter of local musicians, Olivia has been performing on stage for as long as she can remember. Finding a passion in singing, Olivia enjoyed studying music throughout her schooling. Although she is an Art Historian and works at Canterbury Museum, Olivia has maintained music in her daily life by leading the Museum waiata group, being a longstanding member of the Christchurch Youth Choir and, more recently, joining the Christchurch Symphony Orchestra Symphonic Chorus. Olivia will be supported by her mother Liz Braggins on keys, vocal and some sawesome familial harmonising.

Chris DentDent (AKA Albi from Albie and Wolves)
Chris is well known as from man of the award winning band “Albi and the Wolves”, winners of the 2018 Tui Best Folk Artists of the Year and described as one of the most engaging and captivating live bands in the country.
Chris is a soulful singer songwriter who wears his albinism with pride. Expect to hear tales from the road, soul infused folk songs, and his takes on popular music which are always performed in his unique way. After 10 years of making music he always brings a great energy to the stage so do not miss the opportunity to see him perform with one of his acts or all on his own. You will not regret it.

Good Habits (Bonnie Schwarz & Pete Shaw)
An eclectic indie-folk band from Manchester, UK creating immersive, multimedia gigs and projects. Singer-Cellist and Songwriter Bonnie Schwarz and international Klezmer accordionist, Pete Shaw. Sitting between folk and pop, the eclectic duo present an upbeat yet intimate sound-world of musical storytelling.
As an award winning composer and sound designer, Bonnie has worked with Manchester and London’s most established theatres, creating new and innovative sonic experiences.
Pete is an experienced performer who bases his style around many different folk influences; from Irish to Klezmer, Pete has performed around Europe and the United States of America.
