KATIENOONANA3posterCancelled250

CANCELLED – SOLD OUT: KATIE NOONAN (Solo) ‘Matinee’ Live at the Baroque Room, Katoomba, Blue Mountains, SUN 14th June 2020

 

The Harbour Agency & Fusion Boutique Present
KATIE NOONAN (Solo) – 2nd Show *Matinee
“Late Afternoon Tunes with Noons”
+ Special Guest Jack Carty
Live in Concert at the Baroque Room, Carrington Hotel


One of Australia’s most versatile and beloved vocalists. A mother, singer, producer, songwriter, pianist and business woman, this 5 x ARIA Award winning and 7 x platinum selling songstress first received widespread praise as the angel-voiced songstress of indie-pop band George and has since taken audiences on sublime excursions through Jazz, Pop and Classical music.

“Right from the beginning she has stamped ‘class’ on her career. Very few people achieve the control, range and dynamic – supported by flawless technique, and among the pantheon of female singers she could easily claim a place next to the great Joni Mitchell in that regard.” – Iva Davies (Icehouse)

“Katie is like the voice I have in my dreams. Soaring and no note too impossible to reach. She makes something so difficult seem so easy. Her voice is the sound of wonder to me.” – Kate Ceberano 

Katie Noonan’s latest show ‘Late Night Tunes with Noons’ came about quite by accident, in the later hours one night in winter.
Katie posted a short video on instagram of her learning a Hunters and Collectors classic for an upcoming event.
After the response to that first post, the idea evolved into a regular late night video session where Katie interprets some of her favourite Aussie songs from across multiple decades in her intimate and dynamic style.
Featuring songs by artists such as Hunters & Collectors, Tones and I, Jarryd James, Powderfinger, Cold Chisel and more, this event will showcase Katie’s unparalleled skills of re-interpretation, as well as some of her own classic tunes in an intimate solo setting.

The Groove is a new fusion of old sounds emerging from the Illawarra / Shoalhaven. An amorphous shifting blend of Spanish / Classical acoustic guitar vibes with driving Afro percussive rhythms. From Roots to Latin, Blues to Middle Eastern and Eclectic flavours in between The Groove tweak your sense of fun and familiarity. They are versatile, vivacious and vibrant and their sound invariably gets your toes tapping and your hands clapping to ‘The Groove’.

The Groove are Sako Dermenjian, Damion Stirling and Drewe Peard. Sako and Damion met jamming in the streets of Wollongong at the Honk Festival in 2016. There was an immediate spark and synergy of musical cultures. Sako, a brilliant guitarist, is a Syrian refugee who arrived in Wollongong just over three years ago. His grandmother gave him his first guitar at the age of seven and his passion and enthusiasm have lead him to now studying at the Conservatorium of Music in Sydney. Talented percussionist, Damion, grew up on the beaches of Woonona and found a passion for West African drumming and dance which he has been studying, teaching and performing for close to 20 years fusing traditional West African rhythms with Blues, Funk, Rock, Folk and all genres in between. Drewe is a solid talented bass player who has been performing in bands for decades. In his early teens he played the Belmore Basin Jazz band then later in high school band Ficus. He has since played with a number of bands including Swing Booty, Kenny Bartley and the Midnight Feast, Dear Samsara, Big Erle, Swamp n Beats and now The Groove.

The Groove’s synergistic organic sessions have captivated audiences of all ages and cultures from the Northern Beaches of Sydney down to the peaks of the Snowy Mountains. They have played the Beer Day Out, Canberra 2018, the Peak Festival (Perisher) 2017/18/19, Culburra Beach Festival 2017/18/19 and Illawarra Folk Festival 2018/2019, The Stomping of the Grapes Festival 2018/2019, Seechange Festival 2018, Viva La Gong 2018.
The Groove have supported Caravãna Sun, Claude Hay and 19twenty during their east coast tours.
They have played sold out gigs at the Tea Club, the Dish and Spoon and The Groove Cruise and shared their unique grooves in roof top bars, whiskey bars, churches (the Fairlight folk acoustic lounge, Manly) and the Fresh Flix Indy film festival in Nth Sydney.

“It was a wonderful experience to watch you play and see how compelling the music was to children and adults alike.”
“Have you heard these guys? They are awesome!! You’ll love!”

RoryMcLeod2019A3posterPIGEONweb250

RORY McLEOD in Concert at PIGEON LANE @ GALLERY ONE88 Katoomba, Blue Mountains, FRI 24th January 2020

Fusion Boutique & Nomadic Fish Present
RORY McLEOD (UK) “Touring with Gusto! 2020”
Live in Concert at Pigeon Lane @ ONE88

Friday 24th January 2020, 7pm. Doors Open 6pm.

Fusion Boutique is very pleased to welcome one-man soul band, poet and storyteller Rory McLeod back to the Blue Mountains following his well received performances at the 2016 and 2019 Blue Mountains Music Festivals.
Tickets are extremely limited and we advise booking early to avoid disappointment.

Rhythmic storyteller and multi-instrumentalist Rory McLeod is a travelling troubadour toting stories and songs that are bold, percussive, lyrical and deeply personal. Wielding  guitars, harmonicas, trombone, spoons, stomp box, tap shoes, a big heart and a cheeky wit, his shows are enthralling and unforgettable.
“I’ve travelled to look for work, to mend a broken heart, to be with someone I longed for. I’d travel to visit friends and on the way I’d make new ones; I’d roam because I was curious to see what was around the next corner…”

He returns to Australia in Jan/Feb 2020, lugging a swag of new tunes, performing at Cygnet Folk Festival (TAS), Illawarra Folk Festival (NSW) plus some very special shows across Australia.

“McLeod is one of the most energetic, most generous performers I’ve seen.” : Doug Spencer, ABC Radio.

“The charismatic British storytelling troubadour… tripped passionately through highly original and distinctive self-penned material.” : Beat Magazine.

“…eloquently expressed ideas are set to vibrant, dynamic music with bouncy rhythms, infectious riffs and nifty tunes. McLeod transmitted a pure joy of music making …” : St Louis Post-Despatch (USA)

“A dynamic live performer – never still or silent, his shows radiate energy.” : Venue magazine (UK)

Following shows at Cambridge Folk Festival and a U.S national tour supporting Crash Test Dummies, Canadian, Nova Scotia native, MO KENNEY returns to Australia with a brand new single and a bag of new songs from her upcoming new album.

In a world where connection becomes increasingly scarce, there’s a quixotic stubbornness in Kenney’s songs, an insistence that forging a bond is worth all the unavoidable pain and heartbreak and self-destruction that might be wrought from it. And there are few songwriters who are able to create such unforgettable melodies while communicating just how rough the ride can be.

Either with band or armed only with her acoustic guitar and voice, Mo Kenney draws the listener in and has them hanging on every word of her songs about love, loss and self-evaluation that pathologically mine the most shadowy corners of herself in order to surface with something unflinchingly honest.

This time, Mo lands down-under with no band and only an acoustic guitar to play a series of solo shows that include performances at Cygnet Folk Festival and Illawarra Folk Festival.

Welsh/Australian ethereal-folk singer Sali Bracewell and Australian progressive-roots artist Jordan Mac (Fka. Jordan McRobbie) have teamed up to combine haunting and melodic keys, intricate finger-picked guitars and howling, rich harmonies that hark back to the duo’s Celtic heritage. The two have established independent solo-careers in recent years appearing extensively at Australian music festivals as well as touring nationally and overseas but have joined forces for a brand-new project that melds the contemporary multi-instrumentation of two seasoned and virtuosic performers with the age old whispers of folk-worn ballads.
