About the event
Midnight Swim are five singers and an accompanying guitarist who have performed together in various musical groups throughout their lives. They formed a group in Nelson in March 2021 to sing songs they love from around the world in a folky style, with close harmonies and plenty of emotion. Inspired by artists like Fleetwood Mac, Leonard Cohen, Adele, and Imogen Heap, Midnight Swim love teasing the essence out of an original piece and weaving it through with new harmony and texture. Since forming, they’ve performed at Acoustic Routes events, fundraisers, an NBS Live Lounge, the Cable Play festival, and open mics across Whakatū. Midnight swim are excited to share their music and their stories, weaving together traditional folk songs, modern hits, waiata from Aotearoa, and cultural conversations throughout the evening.
