The Young Folk

Eggsentric Cafe, Flaxmill Bay

Fri 1st February, 7 - 10pm


Irish band The Young Folk are returning to New Zealand, in response to the success of their 2018 NZ tour.

 

Hailing from Dublin, The Young Folk marry traditional acoustic instrumentation and vocal harmonies with contemporary production techniques resulting in a sound which has been compared with Fleet Foxes, Bon Iver and Crosby Stills & Nash. “One of the most promising young bands to come out of Ireland in several decades” (Maverick Magazine)

 

The Young Folk consists of Anthony Furey (vocals/guitar) and Paul Butler (vocals/piano/synth), both songwriters of exceptional talent. The duo are joined by New Zealander Alex Borwick (trombone/synth/percussion/banjo/vocals) and Marc Aubele (bass/mandolin/vocals) for their live shows, enabling The Young Folk to fully flex their musical muscle.

 

The Young Folk are signed to UK’s Pixie Pace Records, through which they released their debut album, The Little Battle, in 2014, which went straight to #2 in the Dutch charts and Top 10 in the Irish album charts. Their second album, First Sign Of Morning, was released in 2016. They are currently working on their third album, for release in 2019. The band have toured extensively all over the USA, Europe, and Australia, and are continually winning over new audiences.

 

“Intoxicating voices, punctuating, warm harmonies that illuminate the horizon of a fiery energy, a show not to be missed” - Pause Musicale, France

 

"This is an accomplished musical aggregate that join the microdots between Noah & The Whale and old Greenwich Village Kweskin Jug Band. This is folk in Cuban heels.” - The Evening Herald.

 

“First-rate alternative folk meets indie pop... First Sign of Morning is a rare and beautiful album... There is a bright future for The Young Folk ahead.” - Soundz Magazine
