New Zealand-bred, Melbourne-based singer-songwriter Aldous Harding stands poised to take her burgeoning career to the next level with a planet-spanning jaunt set to kick off this March, including a pair of Aussie shows amid the extensive run.

Following a four-gig stint in New Zealand, Harding will perform at Sydney's Newtown Social Club on Tuesday 8 March, heading down to Gasometer, in Melbourne, on Thursday 10 March. She'll be joined by Jess Ribeiro for both shows.

For our friends across the ditch, the NZ specifics are as follows: Blue Smoke, in Christchurch, on Thursday 3 March; the Leigh Sawmill on Friday 4 March; Meow, in Wellington, on Saturday 5 March; and Whammy, in Auckland, on Sunday 6 March.

Following her shows in Oz and New Zealand, Harding will take flight for Europe and the UK, where between 23 March and 23 April she'll storm through France, Belgium, England, Netherlands, Germany and Switzerland, cramming in 23 shows across the 31 days she's abroad.

The tour will continue riding the momentous wave behind her triumphant 2014 self-titled debut, which injected a breath of fresh air "with more than a dash of class" into the folk genre at a time when it badly needed it and buoyed her to high-profile support, headline and festival spots on stages all around the country in its wake.

Tickets for all of Harding's impending local shows are available now; New Zealand folk can grab their passes here, or head this way for tix for the Sydney and Melbourne shows.
