Tweed is an Auckland-based alternative folk trio with a distinctive style of catchy melodies, poly-rhythms, and tight-knit, complex vocal harmonies. They have a vintage sound reminiscent of the Beach Boys, CSN, and Joni Mitchell. From a band making waves in Auckland's acoustic music scene, High-Brow Blues is a lively, earnest reflection on the peculiar shared experience of circling a star.
Listen to their new album High-Brow Blues here

Miss Peach and her dark alternative folk band tell tales of love, loss and intrigue. Drawing influences from minstrels and storytellers of old, Miss Peach narrates complex characters and adventure into her songs. incorporate the styles of jazz, classical and rock music into Miss Peach’s songs to create the unique blend of sound that is Miss Peach and The Travellin’ Bones.

"The Helensville A&P Association was formed for the purpose of friendship and exchange of agricultural and pastoral ideas among the settlers, and agricultural competition among the farming and village community. 

Today our aims are still basically the same, to promote excellence in agriculture and to bring the country a bit closer to town and to promote things rural, while at the same time bringing a bit of the town to the country. Our schedule of competition covers horses, cattle, sheep, goats, pet dogs, sheep dogs, pigs, woodchopping, calf club, pet lambs, cooking, horticulture, art and craft, painting, garden produce, needlework and a children’s section."
