Hi, I'm Peyton, and I am saving to go to Sweden with my Kapiti College Music group next year, a huge amount to save for. My facebook page is https://www.facebook.com/PeytonMorete/ Instagram is: @PeytonMoreteMusic
A wellington trio with roots in West Virginia old-time, the Faustians' music ranges from tub-thumping hillbilly hoedown songs to dark and mesmerising originals, with edgy mountain-forged vocals and sizzling harmonies, driven down by banjo, guitar and double bass.
Helena carried a wealth of tradition with her when she moved back to NZ after spending 10 years in West Virginia learning the banjo. She formed the group Cotton Daisy Backstep and began playing traditional Appalachian Mountain music at cafes, folk clubs, fairs and square dances around Wellington. They were part of a resurgence of interest in roots Americana music in NZ. Amongst the Old-time songs they performed was an emerging number of originals. While Cotton Daisy still plays the traditional music, for Helena the original songs became increasingly urgent and a more focused conduit was needed. The Faustians was formed when Helena met Philip in June 2016 and they started playing together at home. Philip set out to learn old-time guitar and Ruby was recruited from just down the road to join them with the bass and harmony vocals. An album is planned for the end of this year to be followed by a tour of NZ.

What we're about
WROUGHT is a new breed of makers' market, featuring local crafters and makers, performers, workshops, demonstrations, activities, and amazing food. We're on the lookout for makers with something different to offer, particularly metalwork, upcycled sculpture, woodwork, laser cut and CNC, things that are a bit more industrial art than standard 'crafts'. We're looking for stallholders in the Wellington region (or able to travel for our markets) who make their own stuff - the definition of 'make' being that they are the creative force behind the finished item, whether it be sewn, sculpted, 3D printed, drawn, or otherwise manufactured.
