Whangarei Fritter Festival

Sorry, this event has been and gone.

Crooked Weather head to The Old Stone Butter Factory!

Anyone who made it to their first performance there back in 2016 will remember a great night... The stage is set for another show just like it!

They are a rock infused folk band, based out of whatever rusty vehicle they can beg, steal or borrow and fuelled by the new people and places they meet whilst being on the road. They hail from the depths of East Yorkshire, England, but over the last 2 years have toured the lengths and breadths of Ireland, New Zealand, U.S., England and Holland.

Their original songs, steeped somewhere in the folk revival of the late 60's, have a raw, modern edge, with the lilting harmonies of Holly & Will at the core. Building up a reputation for their live shows, they've supported the likes of Jeffrey Lewis, Micheal Chapman, Mike Heron (Incredible String Band), Jim Jones, Dick Gaughan, Roddy Woomble & Bridget St. John along their way.

Thirsty for the road again, they head to Australia and New Zealand on their 'Paper Roads Tour' where they have more than 30 shows lined up for the end of 2017 and the beginning of 2018. They will also have some of their most recent and currently unreleased studio recordings following in tow.

"They are indie meets World music meets traditional British folk. Think a contemporary Incredible String Band with a 21st century mindset or the acoustic side of Led Zeppelin.” - Sid Griffin (Bob Dylan Biographer/BBC 6 Music)
