HBAF 2023 - Jenny Mitchell & The Mitchell Twins

101 Hastings Street South, Hastings

Join us for a Festival finale to remember as we welcome the smooth and captivating vocals of Jenny Mitchell and the Mitchell Twins. Bringing their award-winning folk/alt-country sound along with a full band featuring storytelling, fiddle and family harmonies from Jenny and her sisters, enjoy a night of soulful songs wrapped in wisdom and wit.

Originally from Gore, Jenny’s music defies easy categorisation, but if you admire music by genre-defying artists Emmylou Harris and Kasey Chambers, you’ll love Jenny.

Described by Rolling Stone as, “her best work yet,” her new album, Tug of War, was a 2022 Aotearoa Music Award Nominee and is home to the 2022 APRA Best Country Song; Trouble Finds a Girl. No stranger to the road, Jenny has graced dozens of festival stages across NZ and Australia and supported artists including Tami Neilson and Nadia Reid.

The Mitchell Twins, Maegan and Nicola, were recently crowned Runner Up at the NZ Gold Guitar Awards and were proud nominees for the 2023 APRA Best Country Song with their emotive track Find a River.

Join us for a storytelling journey that will uplift and bring warmth to audiences of all ages.
