Davidson-Brothers2059e250

The Davidson Brothers are considered two of Australia’s most highly driven and well respected bluegrass musicians. Hamish and Lachie were raised in the rural Victorian town of Yinnar and began performing and recording in 1998. Since then, they’ve toured the United States, Europe, appeared on the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville and toured their band extensively across Australia.

Mostly self-taught, multi-Instrumentalists, both Hamish (fiddle, banjo, guitar, dobro, vocals) and Lachlan (mandolin, fiddle, guitar, vocals) became in-demand session musicians before they finished high school and as competitive teenagers they both went on to win National Bluegrass Championship titles.
Together, the Davidson Brothers have had top 10 Country Radio Singles, reached the ARIA Country Albums Chart and established the Australian Bluegrass Scholarship in 2011 to enhance a young culture and encourage acoustic musicians.

After eighteen consecutive years performing the Tamworth Country Music Festival, three Golden Guitar Awards later, Hamish and Lachie returned with their eighth studio release in April 2017, ‘All You Need Is Music’, which was recorded in Nashville and features 12 new original Bluegrass & Country tracks.

Recently, the boys were inducted by the Australian Country Music Hall of Fame into Tamworth’s prestigious Hands Of Fame monument and in 2016 they teamed up with legendary rocker Joe Camilleri and the Black Sorrows to collaborate in the studio and on stage, opening sold out shows in both Melbourne and regional Victoria.

The brothers have a uniquely Australian light hearted outlook on life which they use to showcase their musical ability to all unsuspecting audiences. Well known for their contemporary acoustic style the Davidson Brothers are destined to have a long-standing career on the Australian music scene.

The Davidson Brothers last performed in the Blue Mountains for the 2017 Blue Mountains Music Festival. Join them in a four piece format as they perform acoustically in this iconic space.

“All music should be this much fun.” – The Age

“The Davidson Brothers are talented fellas and awesome guys. I love what they do and I’ve really enjoyed the privilege of working with them. This album is a great one.” – Dan Sultan

“Two young blokes with all the energy and drive of their generation and an innate ability to transpose that energy to a younger audience.” – Capital News Magazine

Fri 1st September 8th 2017
Venue: BAROQUE ROOM 86 Bathurst Rd (Upstairs from ‘The Harp & Fiddle’ Irish Bar), Katoomba, NSW 2780 Blue Mountains.

Rufino and the Coconuts play The Baroque Room

Sailing on a raft made of 60s guitars, 80s synthesisers and souvenir-junk percussion come the castaways of Rufino and the Coconuts. Rufino, crooner and violinist, renowned for his work with Mikelangelo and the Black Sea Gentlemen, brings his sensational solo show of tropical-noir to The Baroque Room, Katoomba with a full 8-piece band to stir your very bones.

The Coconuts tell tales of Caribbean dentists, jungle misadventures, cray fishing and near-death love-affairs all delivered with a bone rattling backbeat.
They groove, they rock-steady, they spread good time tropical pop and then they yell and run from the evil spirit Baron Samedi.

Led by Rufino the Catalan Casanova – a tropical misfit well-dressed in a strange land – Rufino and the Coconuts take you on a journey both dark and joyful. With flashes of Voodou, rocksteady, 80s post-punk and smooth jungle disco, Rufino and the Coconuts is the band of your exotic island dreams and perhaps your most vivid jungle nightmare!
So join the expedition. With Rufino and the Coconuts at the lead it’s a tropical adventure we know you’ll just love!

Sarah McLeod (The Superjesus) + Special Guests at Baroque Room, Katoomba Blue Mountains, FRI 13th October 2017

SARAH McLEOD (The Superjesus) “Rocky’s Diner” Album Launch Tour
+ Special Guests at Baroque Room

Fri 13th October 2017
Venue: BAROQUE ROOM 86 Bathurst Rd (Upstairs from ‘The Harp & Fiddle’ Irish Bar), Katoomba, NSW 2780 Blue Mountains.

Sarah McLeod’s highly anticipated first solo release in 12 years ROCKY’S DINER is officially out. To celebrate, The multiple ARIA Award winning, platinum-selling artist has just announced the first run of dates on her massive national tour. The epic ROCKY’S DINER tour will run from October right through to November, and will showcase her newest work which marks a radical change of creative gears for Sarah.

McLeod created the album in near-complete isolation during a three-month stint in New York. She bunkered down in the bitter cold, watching the world go by outside her Brooklyn apartment, finding her muse in watching the lives of locals.

“I took my whole studio set up in a Samsonite hard case… There was zero room for clothes except for what I was wearing, I figured I’d buy more clothes when I got there. I wasn’t planning on going anywhere so I didn’t need much, the lack of party attire would hopefully eliminate any temptation to party, I was here to work.”  – Sarah Mcleod

Her first single off the album, “Giants”, was released with a beautiful video, with the treatment written by Sarah herself.

Following her huge achievements as the front woman of South Australian rock-band The Superjesus, she made her first move as a solo artist in 2005 with her debut album BEAUTY WAS A TIGER. Now, she continues this exciting journey with ROCKY’S DINER.

Don’t miss the opportunity to see Sarah perform live!
Joining her will also be Mick Skelton (Baby Animals / Thirsty Merc) on drums.

FoghornA3poster2017web250

FOGHORN STRINGBAND (USA) in Concert at The Metropole Guesthouse Upstairs for ‘Metro Social’ Katoomba Blue Mountains, SAT 21st October 2017

Fusion Boutique Presents ‘Metro Social’ with 
FOGHORN STRINGBAND (USA)
live in Concert at the 1930’s Metropole Guesthouse.

Saturday 21st October 2017, 6:30pm. Doors Open 5:30pm.

“Face it people – there’s Foghorn…and then there’s everybody else.” – Stuart Mason – The Fiddlefreak.

The Foghorn Stringband is the present day gold standard for real-deal hard-hitting genuine old-time American string band music, with eight albums, thousands of shows, over 15 years of touring under their belts, and an entirely new generation of roots musicians following their lead.

American roots music is a diverse and never-ending well of inspiration, and Foghorn Stringband continually and obsessively draws from old-time, bluegrass, classic country, and Cajun music traditions in an ongoing quest to present a broad span of American historical music with an unparalleled youthful energy, joy, and virtuosity.

The Foghorn Stringband is comprised OF four master performers and historians:
– Reeb Willms (vocals, guitar) – From rural Farmer, Washington
– Caleb Klauder (vocals, mandolin, fiddle) – From Orcas Island, Washington
– Nadine Landry (vocals, upright bass) – From the Gaspé Coast, Eastern Quebec
– Stephen ‘Sammy’ Lind (vocals, fiddle, banjo) – From Minneapolis, Minnesota

Each member of Foghorn Stringband exemplifies the best of the roots music traditions from their respective native cultures. Caleb Klauder’s wistful, keening vocals and rapid-fire mandolin picking are as influenced by Southern roots music as much as they are by his upbringing in the sea islands of coastal Washington State. Reeb Willms hails from the wind swept Eastern farmlands of Washington. Her musical family and rural upbringing are on display with every note she sings and every heart she breaks. Nadine Landry’s roots lie in the rural backroads of Acadian Québec, and her high lonesome vocals have delighted audiences the world over. Her earth-shaking bass playing is the rumbling backbone of the Foghorn sound. Minnesotan Stephen ‘Sammy’ Lind, simply put, is the old-time fiddler of his generation whose tone and voice are as old as the same hills that gave birth to this music. Together, these four have forged a sound like no other.

In performance, Foghorn Stringband gather around one microphone, balancing their music on the fly, and playing with an intense, fiery abandon. To the band, this music is as relevant today as it was at it’s birth a century ago. They see themselves not only as cultural revivalists, but also as historians and fans of this music. Their performances and recordings are a joyful celebration of music from a bygone era that still holds the power to delight audiences worldwide.

The band’s repertoire has expanded greatly in the past 15 years. They are as comfortable playing music at a neighbourhood square dance as they are stirring a festival audience to a frenzy. Old time dance tunes rub shoulders with Cajun waltzes, vintage honky tonk country, and classic bluegrass….and it’s all rendered into a cohesive whole. Foghorn Stringband can often be found after a performance in a local pub or club continuing to play with equal energy and joy late into the night. They’re obsessed, and that obsession rings true with every note they play and every song they sing. You’ll see. There’s Foghorn…and there’s everybody else.

“Many are called, but few are chosen. On their new recording Devil in the Seat, Foghorn Stringband proves once again that they are still the Chosen Ones when it comes to down-home, footstomping, ass-kickin’ old time music.” — Stuart Mason, FiddleFreak

“All they have to do is play, and the power surges straight through your own chest. They let their own musicality and the tunes speak for themselves.” “There’s an honesty to this music….It’s pure and simple, ingredients that often go missing in this day and age. It just makes you want to get up and dance.” “Foghorn Stringband makes the music their own with instrumental virtuosity and intense dedication to the sources.” – Old Time Herald

“…the quartet is among the finest practitioners of American old-time music on the globe, a string band whose faithful renditions of songs from bygone decades are no less than living, breathing history.” – Ned Lannamann, The Portland Mercury

CASS EAGER & THE VELVET ROPE + Special Guest ANDIE in Concert at The Metropole Guesthouse Upstairs for ‘Metro Social’ Katoomba Blue Mountains, SUN 22nd October 2017

Fusion Boutique Presents ‘Metro Social’ with 
CASS EAGER & THE VELVET ROPE
+ Special Guest ANDIE
Live in Concert at the 1930’s Metropole Guesthouse.

Sunday 22nd October 2017, 6pm. Doors Open 5pm.

Named by folk-blog Timber and Steel as ‘Janis Joplin and Ben Harper’s love-child’, Cass Eager’s mix of raw soul, husky blues and light-hearted ditties are all punctuated with her unique whisky-soaked vocals. Emotive, slightly raspy, at times tender and at times powerful, Cass’ authentic voice is always the driving force of her music.

Internationally renowned but defiantly grassroots, Cass Eager is one of those rare artists that’s mastered everything from the foot-stomping blues to a sensual slow burner. She’s been called ‘one of the best female singers in Australia’ by Richard Glover (ABC), ’the girl with the golden voice’ (Daily Examiner), and Diesel claims ‘she has a voice so sweet she could sing the phone book and you wouldn’t get bored’.

Eager’s music has taken her to some of the world’s most far-flung places. She’s done several ‘tours of duty’ entertaining Australian troops, from The Middle East to East Timor (with Paul Kelly and Peter Garrett). She’s toured through North America and Canada – alone with her acoustic guitar; alongside Ash Grunwald; and with US musician Bob Egan (Blue Rodeo; ex-Wilco). She performed for Prince Harry during his Australian visit, and after being invited back for a repeat performance, ended up giving the prince guitar lessons.

More recently, Cass supported Michael Franti & Spearhead on their 2015 Bluesfest tour, sat in with Alabama-native Kristy Lee’s Bluesfest sideshows and played alongside G. Love & Special Sauce and JJ Grey & Mofro. 2016 saw her perform with Canadian artist Irish Mythen at Bluesfest and national dates.

A finalist for Best Group and Best Female Vocalist in the Australian Blues ‘Chain’ Awards and Best Blues/Roots Artist in the MusicOz Awards, Cass’ EP ‘Down On My Knees’ was voted one of the ‘Top 10 Albums’ of the year in Rhythms Magazine.

WallisBird2017posterWEB250

WALLIS BIRD (IRELAND) & AINE TYRRELL in Concert at Baroque Room, Katoomba Blue Mountains, WED 22nd November 2017

WALLIS BIRD (Ireland) + Special Guest Áine Tyrrell at Baroque Room

Wed 22nd November 2017
Venue: BAROQUE ROOM 86 Bathurst Rd (Upstairs from ‘The Harp & Fiddle’ Irish Bar), Katoomba, NSW 2780 Blue Mountains.

Irish dynamite Wallis Bird’s expressive vocals and driving guitar rhythms are being compared to artists like Ani DiFranco, Fiona Apple or the young Janis Joplin. Her exceptional voice moves from delicate whispers to explosive power songs, while her music fuses elements of traditional folk music, blues and funk with an energetic handmade rock sound.

A musical magpie whose mature, self-affirming songs display an unusual emotional breadth, Wallis defies categorization. The Irish artist has paid her dues, shredding her fingers and breaking string after string from the sheer force of playing on stages small and large across Europe, and throwing her entire soul into each performance with a level of energy that makes her an unassailable force of nature.

Wallis Bird cannot – and should not – be pigeon holed easily. Capable of the delicate, gossamer-thin ballads that her tiny 5ft2 frame would suggest, she can also summon up a whirlwind of passion and rage in the blink of an eye. Her performances can transition seamlessly from the defiant anthems that can motivate thousands of festival-goers into a rousing sing-a-long, to the most hushed and fragile ballads that can captivate an audience into a spellbound silence . Wherever you may find Wallis, she stands out as a contradictory, powerful presence, one that can unite audiences anywhere she plays.

An exceptional guitarist, her unique playing style only adds to the intrigue of her performances. Following a childhood accident which permanently damaged her left hand, Bird learned to play her instrument flipped back to front, thus having to create her own bafflingly complex chord fingerings, much to the bewilderment of any musicians in the audience.

Now based in Berlin, in the last 8 years Bird has played over 600 shows in Europe and won two Irish Music Awards. Her refreshingly raw honesty and humour have forged some very strong bonds with audiences worldwide. Anyone who has been to a Wallis Bird concert knows that this is not just entertainment: it’s a way of life.

This is Wallis Bird’s second tour in Australia, after her first successful run launching her album “HOME” in 2016.

“Frank and endearingly tender, a tsunami of emotion… Magnificent.” – MOJO, UK

“The Sheer visceral energy of Wallis Bird could kick-start an entire economy.” – Irish Times

“FranIt’s her humour and bold honest that makes Bird so special.” – The Guardian, UK

AineTyrell6420MASTER300

From the West Coast of Ireland to a new life on the road in a 1966 Bedford Bus in Australia… Singing her little heart out!
Áine Tyrrell’s music is a contemporary folk collision between the Ireland of generations gone, and the hope of tomorrow. Her songs are as honest as an old friend, warm and inviting, managing somehow to fuse melodies over rhythms which transport you directly into the mid 19th century, to a land hardened by atrocity, which the rest of the world had temporarily forgotten.
She is a singer songwriter with a sound that transcends the convention the title suggests, at times anything from tribal to fragile and heartbreaking and most of all immaculately crafted.

Áine’s music cradles the spirit of her native homeland, and tips the cap to a notable family history of Irish music tradition. It has grown from those traditional Irish roots into a truly contemporary sound. Ache, honesty, and elated melodies, garnishing rhythms which a thousand years of ancestry have slammed foot to floor boards to, in both celebration and protest.

Australia’s historical lineage, and love of all things Irish, stands as testament to the accolades and support she is now garnering here in her new homeland, having procured the honour of Queenscliff Music festivals ‘Emerging Talent 2014’ mantle. Along with receiving the invaluable and ongoing mentorship from our own revered songstress, Clare Bowditch as well as Shane Howard, and in the success of her own extensive tour in support of ‘Queen of Swords’ Áine’s audience has grown, captivated by this unique talent who has infiltrated hearts and minds with her voice, stories and ability to motivate even the most reluctant of audiences into raucous sing-alongs.

“Tyrrell’s irrepressible personality and indefatigable nature pervades Queen of Swords” – Rhythms Magazine Jan 2016

“Tyrrell’s songwriting talent is evident in the crafting of the lyrics in this vigorous, barely tamed LP (Queen of Swords).” – BMA Magazine

Her voice is unmistakably Irish, in a way few singers are any more.” – Irish Echo

“Soul, intelligence, wit and wisdom, history and mystery and a voice that brings it all together. Don’t miss her, for fear that you might miss the very thing you need.” – Shane Howard

“Áine connects deeply with her music…emotionally stirring and uplifting.” – National Celtic Festival

‘Rhythm Hunters’ RHYTHM UNDERGROUND 2017 at Jenolan Caves, SAT 25th November 2017

‘Rhythm Hunters’
RHYTHM UNDERGROUND 2017 at Jenolan Caves

Sat 25th Nov 2017 from 8pm (Doors 6pm)
Venue: Jenolan Caves (Grand Arch)
4655 Jenolan Caves Rd, Jenolan NSW 2790.

RHYTHM HUNTERS + special guests: TBA

Don’t miss this amazing unique experience world rhythmic dance party event!

Rhythm Hunters (& awesome friends) return to the glorious echo chamber that is the Jenolan Caves Grand Arch, NSW, this November 25th for the RHYTHM UNDERGROUND extravaganza.
After a break from Rhythm Underground in 2016, Rhythm Hunters are back in their biggest show of the year, at The Jenolan Caves. With a brand new album coming in 2017 – this is the biggest and best album launch party we could imagine and is set to be 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.
