Arts Alive are bringing award-winning folk duo, Good Habits, to Llanymynech Village Hall on Saturday 17th December.

Mixing vivid storytelling with eclectic sounds, singer-cellist Bonnie Schwarz and Shrewsbury man Pete Shaw on accordian. They draw on diverse musical tastes and weave them into an action-packed narrative of folky goodness. After touring New Zealand, they’ve returned to spread their joyous music throughout the UK.

And joyous it is! Turning heads across the globe, their unique sound and brand of brisk instrumental virtuosity, once reviewed as a duo with the sound of a five piece, is far larger and more diverse than you might expect. Their creative arrangements and lyrics produce folk music with something for everyone.

Winners of the Purbeck Rising Folk Award 2020, this young duo have performed at Manchester Folk Festival, Bristol Folk Festival, Shrewsbury Folk Festival, Kendal Calling and the prestigious Cecil Sharp House.

This is a rare opportunity to experience the power of alternative folk music, in the company of two fantastic artists whose musical skills and connection produce amazing pieces, timed to perfection. Don’t miss it!
