Wellington’s acclaimed HOBNAIL Band has released its 7th album, ‘Blue Sky Songs’ and is touring the country to promote the album’s sensational fresh material, appearing on Sunday August 20th at the Christchurch Folk Club. HOBNAIL has won considerable acclaim over their 23 year career. Having headlined everywhere from Canada to Norfolk Island, from Oamaru to Auckland, and racked up multiple New Zealand Music Awards nominations in the process. ‘Blue Sky Songs’ is described as “mature, complex, occasionally fiery, but with great depth and power.  Their musical craft is clearly on display with thoughtful lyrics and soaring melodies, and a feel good vibe coming from their unique blend of folk and celtic, country and rock.”
