Canterbury Folk Festival

A Family Festival of Music


Hailing from Auckland, this alternative folk trio has a distinctive style of catchy melodies, poly-rhythms, and tight-knit, complex vocal harmonies. Their vintage sound is reminiscent of CSN and Joni Mitchell. From a band making waves in Auckland’s acoustic music scene, Tweed’s debut album – High-Brow Blues, is a lively, earnest reflection on the peculiar shared experience of circling a star.

Those harmonies make for a magic that – combined with the sparkling sound of acoustic guitar picking and an unusual tendency to weave in complex time signatures and write conceptually – put ‘High-Brow Blues’ in hallowed company.” – Gary Steel, Metro Magazine
