Part 2: the "Home Is Where The HeART Is" part of our New Zealand Tour - North Island this time... 

Hello, Happy New Year and long time no see!

After a busy end to 2023, we are very excited to be taking a bit of a North Island Holiday / Music Tour adventure with James and Karen, Sonia's parents on a one month visit from France! As you may have already noticed from the January concerts popping up in our calendar the past week, we will be playing a number of smaller and larger shows around the North Island. A continuation to our South Island release tour last year for the “Sweet Paname” book and album, this tour adds the rare feature of welcoming Sonia's dad James on guitar and harmony singing & Sonia's mom Karen who will be sharing some improvised live artwork and, if we're lucky, a few vocal harmonies here and there as well! More info in the press release below… Please help us spread the word & we hope to see you at one of our shows soon!

Arohanui and wishing you all a happy, healthy, peaceful and inspiring year ahead.

xoxo Sonia & Nigel
