David & Shimna

David & Shimna at Secret Spot

💥David and Shimna are performing a *”Free” gig at Secret Spot this Saturday 31st July, 1-4pm, weather permitting….
It’s their first time at Secret Spot so here’s a little bit about them… (stolen from their website) 🤩
David Shanhun and Shimna Higgins met years ago at the Bunker Hill Folk music club, and started playing as a duo in 2019 when they toured New Zealand together.

They’ve performed at the Illawarra Folk Festival in Australia, were crowd favourites at Revive Festival and the ASB Tennis Classic in New Zealand, and can be found touring in New Zealand and internationally as this duo, or as part of various other projects they’re both involved with.

Individually David & Shimna have a pretty impressive resume – Shimna being the winner of both the Martin Blackman and the Frank Winter award at Auckland Folk Festival; David having a #1 single on iTunes NZ with ‘Jessie’ in 2020 along with multiple other releases reaching the top 10 in NZ Charts – but on stage together there’s a magic that really gels with their tight harmonies, infectious laughter and energy, and sizzling fiddle and guitar skills.

Described by their #1 fan in Mexico as being ‘like a good taco’ – you can expect that warm nourishing feeling you get from your favourite food after listening to or attending a show with these two.

*”Free” – Complimentary when purchasing a drink or a hot tub experience.
