A Swedish folk band on a New Zealand tour. For the first time ever in New Zealand. Their first gig is the East Coast Folk Club.

Goodland Trio, Hanna Wiskari Griffiths - soprano saxophone & vocals Jonathan Larsson - accordion & vocals Oskar Reuter - guitar, mandola & vocals.

With soprano saxophone, accordion and guitar, Swedish Goodland Trio invites you into their warm soundscape. Rhythmically, sensitively and heartfelt, the trio play self-composed Scandinavian traditional music with a close interaction between themselves and a unique intimacy with their audience.

Founded in 2009, Goodland Trio has since then been touring extensively and released two critically acclaimed albums; ”Goodland Trio” and ”Skogen i staden”. The repertoire of the trio consists mainly of original tunes, composed by the members of the group, with a distinct nordic sound. Goodland Trio plays polskas, waltzes and other common Swedish types of tunes as well as traditional songs.

The arrangements waver between the traditional and the contemporary, with influences of pop and improvised music. The trio includes a wide and versatile competence in Swedish folk - and world music. Each member has studied the Swedish fiddle tradition thoroughly for themselves and this characterizes their way of composing and performing.

”The three musicians really have an affinity for each other and for each other’s music. These tunes sound like they are played with one musical mind, like a master of the pipe organ who is working three separate musical voices with one body. The musical prowess of this trio is inspiring.” - Greg Harness, Rootsworld

"The three instruments seems to be meant for each other, Together, they spin a musical web and the result becomes a nice entirety." - Lars Lind, Lira

"This is affectionate folk music performed with a warm feeling and with an interesting, timeless sound." - Magnus Börjesson, Nerikes Allehanda

Note: Sorry no alcohol permitted in this hired venue.
Format: Casual performers 1st half with the featured guest in the 2nd half.
