Laldy are returning to OneOneSix after the tremendous success of their first ever Northland gig at Whangārei Fringe last year. This time they will be sharing the stage with local folk legends, Social Graces, for a double header evening of live folk music to warm the cockles of your hearts.

Fiddle player Rachel Evans and multi-instrumentalist Donald James combine forces for one mission: to play folk and gie i’ laldy. With Welsh and Scottish roots and a base in Te Whanganui-a-Tara, they are inspired by Celtic and Scandinavian music traditions as they wind their way across the seas.

Laldy brings to the stage a set which weaves together contemporary and traditional folk tunes and songs with original writing and arrangement. Playing a selection of sweet songs, modal grooves and trad bangers, Laldy are a fresh offering to the New Zealand folk and festival scene.

Social Graces: 
Transatlantic Folk featuring Cameron “Dusty” Burnell (mando, guitar, vocals), Bryan Owens (fiddle, bazouki, guitar), Micky Nogher (whistle, bodhran), and Maggie Cocco (percussion, vocals).
