It’s been a crazy year for Aussie-Swedish duo Nick and Liesl. 2011 saw them tour Australia and Europe with their critically acclaimed debut album Feather, and what better way to wrap up an amazing year than with performing at Woodford Folk Festival.

Nick and Liesl are now coming back to Queensland and NSW to follow up on their successful shows here in May and June after an extended stay in Sweden following their fifth European tour.

The tour, which took them through Germany, Belgium, France and Switzerland, included live performances on French TV and German radio as well as the Reeperbahn Festival in Hamburg. After the seven-week tour Nick and Liesl returned to Sweden for some family time and, inspired by the haunting winter darkness there, have been working on new material for when the time comes to record the next release. Sunday at the Sphinx Rock Cafe.
