Sonia & Nigel are a multi-cultural acoustic duo featuring French-American Paris-born Sonia Wilson on vocals & ukulele and Kiwi-American virtuoso musician Nigel Gavin on 7-string guitar & 11-string fretless glissentar. They first met and played together at the Whare Flat Folk festival in Dunedin in 2014 and have since become a well-loved duo in the New Zealand music scene. They weave French, Kiwi and American songs with their own original compositions and inspiration from their travels around the world.

2023 brought a nationwide tour celebrating the release of their book and album Sweet Paname, produced in Dunedin by John Egenes. Now on its second pressing, the book & album will be available for sale at the festival's merch table.
