Dream-folk quartet French for Rabbits are joining up with Wellington based multi-instrumentalist Grayson Gilmour for a four-date tour in November. The tour will see the bands performing at Bats Theatre in Wellington, two nights at Orange Studio in Christchurch and The Tuning Fork in Auckland.
French for Rabbits released their debut album ‘Spirits’ last year on Portland label Lefse Records, and toured extensively through Europe including a stint opening for Danish chanteuse Agnes Obel. The New Zealand tour dates will come on the back of another string of European shows including an appearance at Iceland Airwaves Festival.
Grayson Gilmour has a three-fold musical life as solo artist, band member and film composer. His 2014 album ‘Infinite Life!’ was nominated for ‘Best Alternative Album’ at the 2014 Music Awards, and the Taite Music Prize, and his most recent score for the film ‘Consent’ won ‘Best Original Music in a Feature Film’ at the 2015 Silver Scrolls.
