During the 2 years spent happily stranded in New Zealand by the pandemic, Good Habits performed at some of NZ’s largest festivals. Their debut album, “Going For Broke” received glowing press in Songlines and The New Zealand Herald.
Upon returning to the UK at the end of 2021 as Purbeck Rising winners, they released their 2nd album ‘Antipody’ and embarked on a homecoming tour, starting off with a performance at Manchester Folk Festival which resulted in further bookings at Bristol Folk Festival, Cecil Sharp House and Kendal Calling. They can now be found touring relentlessly around the UK and Germany in their red van, Laurie Vanderson, and are looking forward to performances at Shrewsbury Folk Festival and more.
"Good Habits wrap darkly witty lyrics in a delightfully old-world package that crash together the timeless sounds of cellos and accordions with knowing and warm vocals that make you want to wrap this little duo band around you like an old blanket"
Amanda Palmer (Dresden Dolls)
