The Audreys are back!
Live favourites and multiple ARIA award winners The Audreys ARE BACK with a brand new line-up and a brand new tour.
Led by sultry songstress Taasha Coates, The Audreys have graced almost every major festival in Australia and played more gigs than they can count. They’ve rocked festivals and clubs in Europe and North America, sold songs to films and tv shows far and wide, written music for live theatre, won awards, hit the charts, gone gold and pawned their very hearts for rock and roll.

Launching in 2006 with Triple J favourites “You and Steve McQueen”, “Oh Honey’ and “Banjo & Violin” from their debut album, The Audreys now have five albums worth of songs to choose from and just as many hilarious anecdotes. The Audreys will be back in the studio in spring 2022 ready for a new release in 2023, so be the first to hear some of the new songs – along with all the old favourites of course.

FUSION BOUTIQUE presents THE WEEPING WILLOWS + SMITH & JONES in Concert at Baroque Room, Katoomba, Blue Mountains

Fusion Boutique Presents
THE WEEPING WILLOWS ‘You Reap What You Sow’ Album Launch Tour
+ SMITH & JONES
Live in Concert at the Baroque Room, Carrington Hotel

SATURDAY 30th July 2022
Doors Open 7pm | Show Start 8pm

Venue: BAROQUE ROOM 15 Katoomba St, Katoomba, NSW 2780 Blue Mountains.
– NEW ENTRY VIA THE CARRINGTON HOTEL DRIVEWAY –

2022 & 2021 CMAA ‘Golden Guitar’, Australian Folk Music and Music Victoria Award winners, The Weeping Willows (Laura Coates and Andrew Wrigglesworth) are a couple of old souls, steeped in Bluegrass tradition and draped in Gothic Americana imagery. They regale their audiences with stories of sunshine and romance, God and The Devil, murder and decay. That kind of description might make them sound like some carefully contrived concept-act but there’s something truly different about The Weeping Willows: they really mean it…

2017-2021 saw The Weeping Willows nominated for 10 x CMAA ‘Golden Guitar’ awards, 4 x Country Music Channel (CMC) awards, 2 x Australian Folk Music Awards (AFMAs), Live Act of the Year (Country) in the National Live Music Awards (NLMAs), performing at AmericanaFest (USA), Folk Alliance International (USA), Maverick Festival (UK), Port Fairy Folk Festival, Queenscliff Music Festival, Out On The Weekend and the Australian Americana Music Honours.
In recent years they have supported Lukas Nelson & POTR (USA), Hayes Carll (USA), Iris DeMent (USA), Eilen Jewell (USA) and Willie Watson (USA) and completed national and international tours in support of their sophomore album, Before Darkness Comes A-Callin’, which received four-star reviews in Rolling Stone, The Australian and The Music.
A Weeping Willows performance, whether live on location or caught on tape will always delight.

Smith & Jones, a duo from Bathurst, made up of keyboard player and vocalist Abby Smith, with guitarist and vocalist Sophie Jones, have never been ones to follow the pack. Though classified as alt-country, their goal has never been to remain within the confines of any genre, preferring to let their sound and their songs take them where they will. Since their very first meeting in 2014, Smith & Jones have toured extensively with their two albums Dark Gives Way (2017) and Something Worth Learning (2019) in tow, but always with their live shows at the heart of their partnership.
2022 will see Smith & Jones release new recorded work which looks set to further their reputation as a duo worthy of their high regard as both a live act, and their sensitivity and skill as songwriters and recording artists.
‘Waiting on my Turn’ their newest single is set to be released in March.

Darren “D.C” Cross (Gerling, Jep and Dep) is an Australian guitarist and storyteller, just off the back of supporting Ed Kuepper and Jim White, Mess-esque, JIm White and Marisa Anderson, The Apartments and Ryley Walker, Darren is psyched to return to the Blue Mountains.

Cross’ music is inspired by the 1960’s and 1970’s mainstays of American and British acoustic guitar (John Fahey, Roy Harper, Leo Kottke, Elizabeth Cotton, Nick Drake, Bert Jansch) but he is consciously forging his own musical identity within an Australian landscape.

Darren has just released his third solo D.C Cross album ‘Hot-wire the Lay-low (Australian Escapist pieces for guitar) which was written in and inspired by rural N.S.W.

Cross has been creating music for the last 25 years, from Gerling to Jep and Dep, and has written songs with Kool Keith and Kylie Minogue. He has played shows with artists ranging from Beastie Boys, Beck, and Happy Monday to Johnny Marr, Courtney Barnett and, Ryley Walker.

Fiercely independent, totally devoted, loves telling a story and is always threatening to conquer up something magical with the guitar.

We are very pleased to welcome Gretta back to the Blue Mountains for her “Coffee Drinkers Anonymous Tour”.

Gretta Ziller is an Americana Folk Singer/Songwriter with an ever-growing list of musical accolades. Gretta started her career as an Opera singer and Bagpipe Teacher, her vocal style has changed somewhat since then, she does on the odd occasion incorporate bagpipes into her set … after all, there aren’t many folks that can sing AND play Long Way to the Top !!

But Gretta isn’t just a one trick pony, If you’ve been foolish enough to think you’ve nailed down her sound then prepare to have the rug pulled out from under you. Ziller’s roots span jazz, blues, rock, pop and classical, and that eclecticism is reflected in her songwriting. Her sound may bear the hallmarks of classic Americana music but its essence is far more diverse.

Her 2017 debut album ‘Queen of Boomtown’ received critical acclaim, it was long-listed for the Australian Music Prize in 2018 and receiving a Golden Guitar and an Age Music Victoria Awards Nomination. In 2020 Gretta received her second Golden Guitar nomination for Vocal Collaboration of the year, she also received an AIR Women In Music mentorship. 2020 also saw Gretta release the first single from her forthcoming album from a new home, signing to ABC Music.

Gretta Ziller returned in 2021 as an APRA PD finalist, her participating in the Global Music Match program through Sounds Australia and her sophomore album ‘Judas tree’ released September 17.

“Luke Escombe is a rock-soul singer, raconteur, blistering blues guitarist, comedian and songwriter, and is very good at them all” – Sydney Morning Herald

Combining poetic lyrics with irresistible grooves and a renowned knack for finding humour in dark places, Luke Escombe is venturing out of his northern beaches idyll to perform an intimate show in the conservatory at Hotel Etico, 11 Montgomery St, Mt Victoria.

The ARIA-nominated owner of “Sydney’s sexiest man voice” is stepping aside from his band leader role with The Vegetable Plot to do a rare solo gig, delving into his back catalogue of albums like Mantown, Creeper Vine, Skeleton Blues and Chronic Symphonic, as well as previewing songs from his first new solo album in over five years: Whale Beach Road.

A formidable guitarist, engaging singer-songwriter, and highly entertaining vocalist, Luke Escombe’s shows are always fun, funny and (just a little bit) filthy.

FUSION BOUTIQUE presents JODI PHILLIS & BAND Album Launch Tour + KING CURLY in Concert at Baroque Room, Katoomba, Blue Mountains

Fusion Boutique Presents
JODI PHILLIS (The Clouds) ‘We Need To Be Free’ Album Launch Tour
+ KING CURLY
Live in Concert at the Baroque Room, Carrington Hotel

SATURDAY 13th August 2022
Doors Open 7pm | Show Start 8pm

Venue: BAROQUE ROOM 15 Katoomba St, Katoomba, NSW 2780 Blue Mountains.
– Entry via the Carrington Hotel Driveway –

Legendary singer-songwriter, composer and artist Jodi Phillis (The Clouds, Dearhunters, Roger Loves Betty) is releasing her 6th solo album, ‘We Need To Be Free’ in June 2022 through Melbourne based Cheersquad Records.

To celebrate its release, Jodi is touring the Eastern states of Australia with her talented band – featuring guitarist, composer Damien Lane, Matt Steffen and Phil Lally, to perform her uniquely haunting, country-tinged, chamber folk-pop songs that are sure to evoke tears and ecstasy.

Sharing the bill with Jodi and her band on the night are King Curly in full band mode featuring Blue Mountains local Steve Appel, a long-time enigma of original Australian music with his songs that bring to life avenging zombies, ukulele bumblebees, possessed pianos and a certain air of quiet, small town romance, against an impossibly beautiful backdrop of chook-shed instrumentation. The band also features Steve Grieve on guitars and Johnny Graffham on pedal steel.

This is a special night of masterful music not to be missed, from two of Australia’s most unique singer songwriters.

A direct response to the current existential crisis facing world climate, political, health and social issues, it features 3 new songs, 2 with guest vocalist Dione Leigh Wasup.
It was recorded at his own home studio over the summer of 21/22 with some recording and editing also taking place at Richard Cookes ‘Sanctuary Sounds’ studio in Tilba.

Richard is the former drummer for Aust Punk rock legends The Lime Spiders and has released 7 LPs and 6 EPs since leaving the band and has explored all musical possibilities from Folk to Electronica and Ambient/Classical crossover including soundtrack work.

Richard has been performing and touring regularly on the South Coast of NSW and plans are also underway for his works to be scored, performed and recorded by the esteemed classical ensemble ‘The Acacia Quartet’ later this year, with applications to several major classical music festivals in the pipeline.

‘Glow Baby’ is set for a June 13 release on Spotify/Youtube/Apple music.

Broken Creek Cropped web300

Drawing on Old Time Americana and Celtic traditions, Broken Creek creates intricate chamber folk arrangements for banjo, guitar, violin and voice that reimagines songs, stories and musical traditions from the past to connect them to our present moment.
Lachlan Heycox (guitar/banjo/mandolin/percussion) and Erin Heycox (vocals/fiddle) grew up in rural Victoria steeped in bushbands and balladeers before moving to Melbourne. Named for the creek Erin grew up near, the name Broken Creek signals a love of traditional folk music with an adventurous musical bent to “break” with the same old ways of playing folk music.

2022 sees them releasing their debut album ‘Small Town Anthropologies’ and launching a national Small Town Tour that includes pop-up choirs, church halls, folk festivals and recording tunes in gorgeous locations.

‘Rhythm Hunters’ RHYTHM UNDERGROUND at Jenolan Caves, SAT November 2022

‘Rhythm Hunters’
RHYTHM UNDERGROUND at Jenolan Caves

*New Rescheduled date for 2022 TBA
Saturday 27th November 2021 from 8pm (Doors 6pm)

Venue: Jenolan Caves (Grand Arch)
4655 Jenolan Caves Rd, Jenolan NSW 2790.

RHYTHM HUNTERS
+ special guests TBA

This event has been rescheduled to Sat 27th Nov 2021 to give us the best possible chance to have one full pumping Cave and put on the best event possible for you all.

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

Rhythm Hunters are back again with their biggest show of the past years, with the return of Rhythm Underground at The Jenolan Caves.

Rhythm Hunters have held 8 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.
