“An explosive mixture of folk and pop. Don’t miss them.” - SEE Magazine, Edmonton, Ab. Canada.
Wellington folk/rock favourites The Hobnail Boots have shortened their name. That's not all that's changed. In July they will release their 5th CD "Baggage", and there will also be an accompanying tour. The CD features 9 originals plus a stunning cover of The Warratahs Classic “Hands Of My Heart.” There is also a new member, Bonnie Riley. Originally hailing from The Canadian Maritimes, Bonnie brings an outstanding country flavoured voice, her guitar, and a bucket load of personality to the band.
Hobnail have journeyed far and wide in their 18 years of performing - trips which have seen them take their Kiwi flavoured songs and stories not only all over New Zealand, but also to the United states, Canada, Ireland and Europe.
Festival favourites around New Zealand, their live performance has been variously described as “spellbinding”, “captivating”, “incendiary”, “rousing” and “highly spirited and entertaining”. They have featured at Sounds 'n' Nature at Raumati, Tauranga’s Blues, Brews and BBQs Festival, the Hokonui Moonshine Festival in Gore, Taranaki’s Festival of Lights, The Wellington International Festival of the Arts, Masterton’s Golden Shears, the Foxton Easter Festival, The Festival of the Elements in Porirua, The Huntaway Festival at Hunterville, and the Nelson School of Music Winter Festival. The Hobnail Boots have also made appearances on TV’s Good Morning and National Radio's Friday afternoon Live show with Wayne Mowatt.
Featuring “Jo Moir’s barnstorming fiddle”, the award winning songwriting of Rob Joass, spectacular harmonies, and over 100 years of collective performance experience, The Hobnail live show is one not to be missed.
“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
