For the uninitiated, it will be a rare treat as one of the country’s best live acts tours the finest album of its illustrious career.

“When Hobnail take the stage, they tear into their set with mucho gusto, injecting volume and energy into the evening with their illustrious blend of bluegrass, Celtic folk, pop, and rock’n’roll.” - Nelson Mail

Hobnail was formed by Rob Joass in 1994 - an ex-Sydney-sider who came to New Zealand more than 25 years ago with a guitar over his shoulder and a bag full of original tunes - and Jo Moir, a violinist whose voice proved a perfect counterpoint to Joass.

Rob (Vocals, Guitar, Mandola), writes compulsively, tours incessantly, teaches guitar, produces albums, and can be found behind a mixing desk, playing live and in the studio when time allows. His songs have been covered by artists both in NZ and abroad and is often spoken of as one of the hardest working musicians in New Zealand...

Jo Moir (Vocals, Violin) incorporates Celtic, Country and Classical influences into a violin playing style which can range from the breathtakingly beautiful to ‘barnstorming’, As a vocalist, Jo can melt the coldest of hearts, "Jo Moir has one of those rare voices… a breath of fresh air", Andy Donnelly Radio CKUA, Canada

Caroline Easther (Drums, Vocals) is a New Zealand music legend, having spent time drumming for iconic Dunedin bands The Chills and The Verlaines. In 1997 she teamed up with The Waratahs main man Barry Saunders, with whom she continues to record and tour, most notably with Bob Dylan and Joe Cocker.
