Albi & The Wolves, and Looking For Alaska. Two homegrown kiwi folk bands who are ready to make like Rocket Lab out at Mahia, and launch fans into outer space. To do so, they have joined forces, and are thrilled to announce their joint summer tour, ‘A Little More Space’ – featuring their music that you know and love, but with more ambition, bigger venues, a bigger band, and maximum summer time vibes. Perfect for hitting that green light, shaking off the covid blues and starting 2022 off with a bang.

The tour will be hitting all the best North Island summer hot spots, with shows in Whangarei, Leigh, Hamilton, Mt Maunganui, New Plymoouth, and Hastings.
Most exciting of all, this tour will include a jaunt across the ditch to Tasmania, where both bands will be featuring at the illustrious Cygnet Folk Festival.
