17th February 2023 – 20.00 to 22.00
Good Habits are an award-winning UK folk duo forged on the other side of the globe. Composed of Bonnie Schwarz (cello + vocals) and Pete Shaw (accordion), the pair mix vivid storytelling with eclectic sounds, drawing on their diverse musical tastes and weaving them into an action-packed narrative of folky goodness.
After 2 years happily stranded, touring across New Zealand (due to the pandemic) they returned to the UK at winners of the Purbeck Rising Competition. 2022 saw Good Habits’ first year establishing themselves as a duo back in the UK. To their delight, it was a jam-packed year, of performances, tours and musical collaborations including performances at the Shrewsbury Folk Festival, Bristol Folk Festival, Manchester Folk and much more.
