NATHAN CAVALERI + Special Guest KRISTEN LEE MORRIS in Concert at The Metropole Guesthouse Upstairs for ‘Metro Social’ Katoomba, Blue Mountains, SAT 29th June 2019

Nala Music & Fusion Boutique Present ‘Metro Social’ with
NATHAN CAVALERI
+ Special Guest KRISTEN LEE MORRIS
Live in Concert at the 1930’s Metropole Guesthouse.

Saturday 29th June 2019, 6pm. Doors Open 5pm.

Much of the country was oblivious to the career Nathan Cavaleri led beyond prime-time Australia. By age 12, he found himself the centre of a bidding war between the labels of Michael Jackson, Prince and Madonna. By age 16 he’d toured with B.B. King as his guest, and played at the Kennedy Centre in front of The Clintons with Etta James and Bonnie Raitt.

In 2010, Nathan’s battle with insomnia and anxiety was witnessed by thousands when he blacked out on a festival stage. Struggling to regain his confidence and drive he stepped away from his art with the expectation of never returning. Whilst the performing came to a halt, his song writing developed a far deeper level of expression with a diverse range of influences. This love of music offered him a similar type of therapy it had when he battled leukaemia as a child. Motivated by his passion to play and write, he stared down the fear of live performance and determined that it was time to make a record.

His upcoming EP ‘Demons’ stretches beyond the traditional rock, blues and roots that Cavaleri is known for.
The release of the first single ‘Demons’ marked his 6 year rise above mental health challenges and return to the stage. ‘Rising Sun’ is a track in which he pays tribute to the man that landed him his first record deal and tour at age 10, Jimmy Barnes, and is an emotive step from the profoundly beautiful title track.
This will be Nathan’s first solo release since he was signed to Michael Jackson’s label in 1994 and features songs that are a culmination of the diverse life Nathan has lived. B.B.King calling Nathan “the future of blues” is definitely an appropriate quote for how he has expanded beyond his roots.
“This time around, I wanted to express more than blues would allow. Each track throughout the writing and production process conformed to no specific genre and called upon an array of my favourite artists from J.J.Cale and B.B. King to Bowie, Lana Del Ray, and Mos Def.”

Cavaleri returns after playing sell out gigs up and down the East Coast, seeing him connect intimately with new and lifetime fans through both story and song. From how his love for music deepened during his battle with leukaemia as a kid, to a hilarious encounter with Led Zeppelin’s Jimmy Page and Robert Plant after playing to sixty thousand people in Zurich after Elton John.
However, it’s how he brings his experiences and songs into the present that gives audiences more than a shot of nostalgia.

+ Special Guest KRISTEN LEE MORRIS

Kristen Lee Morris has built a career on writing, singing and playing guitar in a raw and soulful fashion.
It is blues music at its core but with a freedom and range that also draws on country and folk styles. From the blues masters to Chris Whitley, Neil Young to Steve Earle – you can hear it all in Morris’ special blend.
In 2014 Morris released his well-received, Kasey Chambers-produced debut album Ruins. Morris shared stages with Chambers, The Blind Boys of Alabama, Charlie Parr, and Hayes Carll before he and partner Sarah Humphreys brought their Eagle & The Wolf collaboration to life with a rich and soulful Americana album of the same name.
2018 was the year of Hillbilly Blues, Morris’ second solo album and one that eloquently encapsulates the spirit and verve of the musician and songwriter; his raw swagger and charm in full flight. In recognition of Kristen Lee Morris’ songwriting, Henry Wagons chose the single ‘Cowboy’ as his local song of the year on Double J’s Tower Of Song.

MAES2019A3poster250

THE MAES (with MONIQUE CLARE) + Special Guest MAIZY COOMBES in Concert at The Metropole Guesthouse Upstairs for ‘Metro Social’ Katoomba, Blue Mountains, FRI 5th July 2019

Fusion Boutique Presents ‘Metro Social’ with
THE MAES (with MONIQUE CLARE)
+ Special Guest MAIZY COOMBES
Live in Concert at the 1930’s Metropole Guesthouse.

Friday 5th July 2019, 6pm. Doors Open 5pm.

Multi-award-winning Melbourne contemporary folk outfit, The Maes (formerly The Mae Trio) is the brainchild of sisters Maggie (banjo, guitar and vocals) and Elsie Rigby (fiddle, mandolin and vocals). Born into the arms of the Folk music community, both sisters were side of stage at their first folk festival when they were four weeks old and have been absorbing and exploring folk music since that time.

The Maes’ latest, self-titled record set for release in April 2019 is a return to the sisters’ folk music roots. Gentle, intimate and conversational, the album is an unadorned showcase of Maggie and Elsie’s superb songwriting as well as honest, relaxed and stunning vocal and instrumental performances.

The album was born on a two-month tour of Europe and North America in 2018 shortly after the band changed its name from The Mae Trio to The Maes after the departure of founding member Anita Hillman. The sisters started the tour with a recording session in Canada, intending to make a four track EP. Fired up by the changes in the band, inspired and bursting with new music they kept looking for new recording opportunities as the tour progressed. By the end of the tour they had two tracks from Nova Scotia, Canada, two songs from the Isle of Mull in Scotland, two songs from different studios in Ireland and four songs recorded in their hometown of Melbourne.

The album features production from top roots music producers from around the world including, Daniel Ledwell (Oh Pep!, Jenn Grant, Good Lovelies), John Fitzgerald (Christy Moore, Crooked Still, Lisa Hannigan) and Brendon Love (Teskey Brothers). The album also features cello and harmony vocals by award-winning Brisbane musician, Monique Clare who regularly tours with The Maes and will be performing at this show.

Their latest release follows on from their sophomore album, Take Care Take Cover, which was recorded in Nashville by Grammy nominated producer/engineer Erick Jaskowiak (The Waifs, Crooked Still, Darrell Scott) and featuring some of that music town’s finest roots musicians. The record won them the Age, Music Victoria Folk/Roots Album of the Year in 2017 as well as rave reviews in Australia and overseas.

Since 2014, The Maes have been full time touring in Australia and overseas, winning over audiences with their striking songwriting, intricate instrumental arrangements and stunning vocal harmonies. The band’s touring history includes a list of some of the worlds largest and most prestigious music festivals such as, the Woodford and Port Fairy Folk Festivals in Australia, The Edmonton and Vancouver Folk Festivals in Canada, Cambridge Folk and Celtic Connections festivals in the UK and the Telluride Bluegrass Festival in the USA.

“simply superb sophomore album.” – The Australian *****

“…underscores the ever growing potential these girls have to capture a truly international stage.’ – Folk Radio UK

“The Mae Trio songs are powerful, the vocal harmonies soar, and their own instrumental prowess is impressive” – Penguin Eggs

“quite simply breathtaking” – Rhythms Magazine

“Located at a crossroads where Australian, English and American folk traditions meet, The Mae Trio are in the midst of creating something unique and very much their own” – Songlines

Maizy300

+ Special Guest Maizy Coombes

Blue Mountain’s based Maizy Coombes, is an endearing Violinist/Songwriter with a contemporary folk sound beneath wholesome lyricism.  Her approach to life is equal parts adorable, resourceful and sneaky, all of which is reflected brightly in her music. Using a loop pedal to support herself, this unique sound scape has the ability to bring out tears as you apply make-up or brush your teeth, yet still leave you feeling contemplative and joyous.
We first encountered Maizy’s gorgeous fiddle playing in “Lime and Steel”.
Don’t miss this opportunity to see her subtle and solo.

MISSYRAINESA3posterMOCK250

MISSY RAINES TRIO (Nashville) + Special Guests WHOA MULE in Concert at Hotel Blue Upstairs for ‘Live At The Attic’ Katoomba, Blue Mountains, FRI 18th October 2019

Fusion Boutique Presents ‘Live At The Attic’ with
MISSY RAINES TRIO (Nashville) – Australian Tour
+ Special Guests WHOA MULE

Live in Concert, upstairs at Hotel Blue

Friday 18th October 2019, 6pm. Doors Open 5pm.

With a smoky and seductive alto, 7 Time International Bluegrass Music Association Bass Player of the Year, Missy Raines, heads up this all-acoustic ensemble. The territory the trio covers is broad and the compass is set by Raines, planted right in the centre of the stage directing with her bass every bit as much as she’s playing it.
“Raines launches her well-tended craft off the bluegrass dock into the waters of jazz and folk, holding onto the anchor of bluegrass while pushing steadily at the boundaries of the music that engulfs her.” – Country Standard Time.
In 1998 Raines became the first woman to win IBMA’s Bass Player of the Year award and she went on to win the title more than any other bass player in the history of the organisation. She has proven herself without doubt, as an iconic bluegrass instrumentalist.

“The countless miles Raines has travelled are a gorgeous, weathered patina on her songwriting as well as the careful, intentional arrangements — and rearrangements — of these songs.” — The Bluegrass Situation

“Her latest release, Royal Traveller, not only confirms her renowned instrumental status but also announces another first, as she debuts as a songwriter, 11 tracks that both reflect and reach beyond her bluegrass roots, to touch upon indie folk, jam grass and jazz-inspired material. ” — Folk Radio UK

“It isn’t often that a song will rope me into playing it on repeat. The title track of this album [Royal Traveller] though is one of those songs.”  — Americana Highways

MIKE & RUTHY (USA) – FROM THE MAMMALS in Concert at Hotel Blue Upstairs for ‘Live At The Attic’ Katoomba, Blue Mountains, FRI 1st November 2019

Fusion Boutique Presents ‘Live At The Attic’ with
MIKE + RUTHY (USA) – FROM THE MAMMALS
Live in Concert, upstairs at Hotel Blue

Friday 1st November 2019, 7pm. Doors Open 6pm.

Mike Merenda and Ruth Ungar are a Hudson Valley, USA based husband-and-wife duo setting the Americana/Indie-Folk scene ablaze, as a duo or with their five-piece band, The Mammals.
Singers, songwriters & storytellers, social & environmental activists, poets and parents, they tour with their children in tow, embodying a down-home approach to Americana.

Merenda is a prolific songwriter, who’s recent crowd-pleasing piece, Sunshiner, was nominated for an International Folk Music Award for Song of the Year. It is an ode to renewable energy which simultaneously honours the past and looks to the future with the sing-along lyric, “Yes my Daddy was a miner, but I’m gonna be a sunshiner.”

Ungar’s unique vocal style ranges from a capella balladry to earthy soul and country. She was raised in a folk music family and learned the fiddle at a young age.
She is carrying on her family tradition, being the daughter of legendary fiddler/composer, Jay Ungar, known for his famous composition, ‘Ashokan Farewell’ used as the theme for Ken Burns’ landmark documentary, ‘The Civil War’, which she also enjoys performing.

“Mike & Ruthy concerts blend artistry and authenticity, with fiery fiddle & banjo, emotionally potent harmonies, and dynamic stories that deepen the experience. Tap your toes and sing along as Mike & Ruthy “roam effortlessly through the whole span that is Americana, from alt-country to folk to bluegrass.” – The Bluegrass Situation

“These two will shatter any stereotypical misconceptions of what it means to be a folk musician” – The Coastal Journal

“Everything is masterfully performed as Mike Merenda and Ruthy Ungar sing about the charms of hard work, home made wine and free parking. Amid the barn dance reverie created by fiddle, pedal steel, horns and more, Ruthy’s versatile alto is the most glorious instrument of all.” – ABCnews

“Pristine” – The New York Times

“Some of the best song writing of their generation” – LA Weekly

Hunters-Hi-Res-Lands-250

‘Rhythm Hunters’ RHYTHM UNDERGROUND 2019 at Jenolan Caves, SAT 23rd November 2019

‘Rhythm Hunters’
RHYTHM UNDERGROUND 2019 at Jenolan Caves

Sat 23rd Nov 2019 from 8pm (Doors 6pm)
Venue: Jenolan Caves (Grand Arch)
4655 Jenolan Caves Rd, Jenolan NSW 2790.

RHYTHM HUNTERS + special guests: TBA

After a break – RHYTHM UNDERGROUND is back for 2019!
Don’t miss this amazing unique experience world rhythmic dance party event!

Rhythm Hunters are back in their biggest show of the past years, with the return of Rhythm Underground at The Jenolan Caves. With a brand new album ready to be released – this is the biggest and best album launch party we could imagine. Looking forward to making this the biggest and best Rhythm Underground ever!

Rhythm Hunters have held 7 concerts in the arch and the event has seen 4000+ people to witness Frenetic Shamanic Dance, Japanese Shakuhachi Flute Master Riley Lee, thunderous Japanese drums, traditional music from Indonesia, electronic beats, drum and didge with Wild Marmalade and of course the enigmatic percussion master Nicky Bomba. It‘s like an organic dance party in the largest underground caves systems in the world.

Rhythm Hunters are a dynamite force combining music from Indonesia, Japan, West Africa and Australia. Cutting edge physical drumming, subtle electronics, western horns, Asian flute, tuned bells, synth effects, deep grooves and ethereal sound scapes combine, making them one of Australia’s most exciting music groups.

The ‘Wow’ factor comes from the dramatic physical movement spectacle originally influenced by Taiko drumming.

Rhythm Hunters new world tribal music has a reverence and a love of tradition that transcends age and genre. Incorporating power, pizzaz, funk, innovation and old school discipline that is delicately channelled into their irresistible sound and sweet Indo-Pacific Grooves.

Those that had the pleasure of catching this fabulous group as they closed out the 2015 Blue Mountains Winter Magic Festival can attest to their warm infectious rhythms with soul.

“The Rhythm Hunters were a highlight of the 2015 Winter Magic Festival. They grooved, danced and drummed the night away with their own unique brand of music magic. Always a crowd pleaser and always create an amazing atmosphere whenever they appear on stage” – Tina Marie Pizel Sheil, Blue Mountains Winter Magic Festival
“Rhythm Hunters seems to be a force of nature rather than a grouping of musicians… a show that was so musically engaging and complex that it feels like you have slipped inside an ancient myth or other world. I was clearly unprepared for the power of this act” – Steve Gadd, Director Cygnet Folk Festival
“Rhythm Hunters shone and inspired, the intensity of the drums, combined with the poetics of dance and martial arts was irresistible”. – Lisa Maree Botticelli, Australian Stage Online

Jenolan caves is the world’s oldest discovered open underground caves system and they are the largest, most spectacular, and most famous caves in Australia. The acoustics are on par with any of the world’s greatest concert halls but the atmosphere is still and ancient.
The caves are 4 hours drive from Sydney, nestled deeply in the Blue Mountains World Heritage wilderness.
*PLEASE NOTE: The road into The Grand Arch closes at 7.00pm.
The event begins at 8pm sharp. Please aim to be inside the venue no later than 7.00pm.

Come just for the concert or stay tuned for information about camping options with the Hunters crew 12 km from the Caves. This year there will also be a chai tent/chill space set up at the camp grounds to relax and soak up the mountains.
