" Australian trio Springtide were popular guests at Folk Under The Mountain last weekend, playing to a good audience in Te Aroha Arts Centre on Saturday afternoon."
Teresa Ramsey..Waikato Times

"The three Springtide performers are masters on their instruments, each taking their turn to wow us. There was humour and toe-tapping, beauty and tragedy. We were even treated to a song from Lord of the Rings."
Sue Rose - Acoustic Routes Folk Club, Wellington

"What a small group of really talented musicians, so versatile with the variety of instruments they play, and what a beautiful ancient instrument the

dulcimer living up to its name ‘‘sweet melody’’ "
Sister Barbara Cameron - Wallace Gallery, Morrinsville

A warm welcome from the East Coast Folk Club, Auckland kicked off our very first tour of New Zealand. Fabulous!

We soon headed to the beautiful Tuakau region to give two concerts in the stunning Nikau Cave Cafe

We warmed up for Folk Under the Mountain, Te Aroha with a House Concert in Waihi, and a pop-up gig at Kenwyn Rest Home, Te Aroha.

Springtide loved being part of Folk Under the Mountain in Te Aroha, a great little festival directed by Phil Garland . It was a busy schedule for the band with concerts, dances, and sessions over 3 days.

The rain did not daunt our enthusiastic audience at the Hamilton Acoustic Music Club (and we had a very cool stage set-up!)

One of our most successful concerts was the Pop-Up gig in New Plymouth. Enjoy the video of the house dog settling in for some Greek music!

Alistair's Music Shop in Wellington takes an active role in promoting folk events in Wellington. We went on down to Cuba Street and did a couple of promo videos to advertise our Acoustic Routes gig for facebook- this one reaching 3k hits!! (See Opposite)

A fitting end to the Springtide tour - returning to the Waikato and the beautiful arts space Wallace Gallery, Morrinsville

2015 & 2016 - Highlights

2016 got off to an exciting start with our long awaited tour of New Zealand. We had a fabulous time playing small venues throughout the North Island of New Zealand including the "Folk Under the Mountain Festival" , several folk clubs, gorgeous cafes, house concerts, and galleries. We also made Springtide history in cyberspace by drawing 3K hits for a promo made by Alistair's Music Shop in Wellington. A huge thank-you to all who helped make the tour possible. We'd love to go back soon!
As the y ear progresses we are working on various projects including a new CD which will feature all our beautiful songs. Watch this space....
2015 was a big year for SPRINGTIDE with performances throughout the year including Cobargo & Illawarra Folk Festivals and Planet Dungog. We also excelled individually, with Jackie performing the Sandouri part for the Sydney premiere of Theodorakis To Axion Esti, Rita performing in China, and Greg around NSW with his bush band the Inland Navigators. The most exciting part of the year was our tour of UK and Ireland. We had a great time in Nobber Co. Meath (birthplace of Turlough O'Carolan) at the O'Carolan Festival, and then in West Cork at O'Donovan's Hotel and Molly's Wine Bar. Back in the UK we loved the Islington Folk Club, London and the Black Swan, York.
Our final appearances were at the World Dulcimer Congress, Great Malvern in October. See the Australian performance at the Congress  here
