Good Habits will be playing as Good Trouble on Thursday (a collaboration with The Trouble Notes). 

One of the most exciting new folk duos to come out of the UK, Good Habits’ award-winning, genre-fusing sound has received international critical acclaim and opportunities to play at Glastonbury, WOMAD, and more in the short 4 years they have been performing.

Composed of Bonnie Schwarz (cello + vocals) and Pete Shaw (accordion), the pair mix virtuosic musicianship and vocal harmony with vivid storytelling, drawing on their diverse musical tastes and weaving them into an action-packed narrative of folky goodness.

After a pandemic spent ‘happily stranded’ in New Zealand for all of 2020+2021 where they were supported and endorsed by Amanda Palmer, they arrived back in the UK to spread their joyous music throughout Europe.

Since returning home, they have toured relentlessly around the UK and Europe performing at festivals including Glastonbury, Cambridge Folk Festival, and Shrewsbury Folk Festival whilst developing a loyal fanbase. Won Shrewsbury Folk Festival’s ‘Launch Pad’ and the Purbeck Rising Award whilst also being nominated for the prestigious Cambridge Raphael Prize.
