We’re playing at Auckland Folk Festival, 24th-27th January

Hey guys! It’s just over a week until Grawlixes perform at the Auckland Folk Festival, over 24th-27th January. Not only are we performing twice (!) but we’re also doing a sit down chat about songwriting with Ebony Lamb & Andy Irvine (Ireland). See you there eh? Come say hi and hang out for the weekend


Lake South album now out, featuring Pen’s vocals

We’re getting very quite very near the end of our recording and I wish we could provide visual confirmation of this but I deleted all my photos.
More interestingly, our friend & label mate Lake South has released his very cool new album Wellington | Te Upoko O Te Ika!

You can listen to it everywhere.

Pen also provided backing vocals on half the songs so listen out!

Lakesouth album – Wellington (give it a listen eh)
