“Smoke and Ashes” to be Released Feb 1
From the Lonely Heartstring Band website:
After much back and forth, we’ve finally locked in February 1st, 2019 as the release date for our second record, Smoke & Ashes on Rounder Records. We’re so excited to get this music out into the world as we feel it captures the fresh sound we’ve been working into our performances for the past couple years. Keep an eye out for more news about singles release as well as pre-ordering the album!
Expect a party atmosphere on Friday evening at the opening of Kiwigrass as Lonely Heartstring Band officially release their new album, “Smoke and Ashes.” If you saw them play last year, you might be like me, still having their mind-blowing debut album “Deep Water” on infinite repeat. I cannot wait for a new collection of songs from them, and I’m even more excited to see them perform the new songs live!
The Waikato river is not safe for swimming and in any case cannot be accessed from Narrow Park, but the good news is there is a swimming pool (purchase tickets at reception) if it gets hot.
Narrows Park will be open and available to Kiwigrass attendees from Monday night for people wishing to come straight down after Auckland Folk Festival. Spend a few days relaxing and recovering beside the tranquil Waikato River. You can relax through the whole week or attend Academy until the festival kicks off on Friday. Narrows has also made a special deal for those attending the festival: if you stay 5 nights, you get a sixth night free.
Kiwigrass wraps up around 5pm Sunday night. You can stay at Narrows Sunday night after the festival, but there is a group coming in on Monday and everyone needs to be cleared out by 9am Monday morning.
To book accommodation for Kiwigrass email Narrows Park at email@example.com. Or you can call them at +647 843 6862 or +64 22 425 3526. They say that e-mail is the best option.
