Aldous’s music has that real ‘Summer of 1769’ feel to it.
Some traditional hallmarks of English folk are present – a great finger-picking guitar style rolling along with her pure, warbling voice – but don’t mistake this in any way for mere whimsy. It is by turns deeply intense and completely enchanting and as brave and bold as a solo artist gets. She walks the plank.
Aldous hails from the little port town of Lyttleton, tucked away on the east coast of NZ’s South Island, and will be coming across to play GP9 first thing Sunday.
