FUSION BOUTIQUE presents PAUL A. GEORGE (Lead Guitarist from TIJUANA CARTEL) ‘Last Dance’ Album Launch TOUR w/ SPECIAL GUESTS MIGRET (Duo) in Concert at Baroque Room, Katoomba, Blue Mountains

Fusion Boutique Presents
PAUL A. GEORGE (Lead Guitarist TIJUANA CARTEL) ‘Last Dance’ Album Launch Tour
+ Special Guests MIGRET (Duo)
Live in Concert at the Baroque Room, Carrington Hotel

SATURDAY 1st June 2024
Doors Open 7pm | Show Start 8pm

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

Paul A. George is the guitarist/singer/producer for Tijuana Cartel.
He makes music to move to, music to meditate to too. Inspired from a world of music and a home in the Australian rainforest.

Paul has had a wide ranging experience of musicality. From living in India and studying sitar, to training his fingers in the south of Spain to the intricate rhythms of flamenco. His multicultural approach towards playing the guitar and his healthy appetite for deep bassy grooves are important factors for the magic of Paul A. George.

Desert Sounds, Flamenco guitars, Organic House, Down-Tempo.

From the front man of Australian band Tijuana Cartel, these deeper rainforest inspired beats are aimed to induce a soulful, intuitive exploration of dance and electronica.

‘If Sunday afternoon had an ultimate soundtrack, it would be Tijuana Cartel’s Paul A George and his spellbinding acoustic guitar, taking our final day in paradise to new frontiers, wrapped in an emotional, star studded blanket of wild west meets deep house.’ Melbourne Royalty

‘Guitar and synthesiser grow around each other organically, sprouting magnificent sonic flowers, their sound colours complementing each other with natural perfection. The beat underneath throbs along in an unobtrusive, yet highly propulsive groove.’ Acker Records

Paul A. George’s debut, “Last Dance,” isn’t a dirge, it’s a fiesta. Flamenco strings duel with pulsating electronica, conjuring Tulum sunsets and desert mirages in equal measure. Flamenco bleeds into cumbia, house thumps into ancient rhythms – a seasoned nomad weaving sonic tapestries across continents.

“It’s a culmination of all the things I love, and bleed together in a way that could move a crowd, or let someone get lost in a set of headphones,” says George. “I’ve got rooms full of old synths and guitars. I felt comfortable attaching myself to all of them at some stage of the album.”

+ Special Guests MIGRET (Duo)

Migret is an indie-electronica band from Blue Mountains, Australia, that formed in 2019. The band is made up of Argentinan-born couple Betsy and Fran.
They released their first studio album in 2019 entitled “Un monton de casas” that was released independently by the band (currently sold out).
After a successful tour of their home country and a few single releases, the band is now building their home on wheels with the intentions to travel around the island.

Intimate compositions and dreamy pop vocals that are emotionally resonant and add a layer of ethereal beauty. All wrapped in an cinematic soundscape atmosphere with guitar delays, ambient synths and minimalist sequences.

“The result would be “Un montón de casas”, an EP of subtle compositions. With a delicate voice that does not elude emotionality, they sing about airports, boats that go nowhere and old notebooks that burn. All wrapped in an intimate atmosphere with guitar delays, synthesizers and minimalist programming.” – diario contexto
“Migret generates ethereal atmospheres, quite close to those sketched by post-rock bands like Explosions In The Sky, but it does it in a much more emotional tune and with the protagonism of a female voice that tells stories of misunderstandings and proposes a charming and accurate ambient pop.” – indie hoy

FUSION BOUTIQUE presents DAVE GRANEY & CLARE MOORE Album Launch Tour 2024 in Concert at Baroque Room, Katoomba, Blue Mountains

Fusion Boutique Presents
DAVE GRANEY & CLARE MOORE ‘(strangely)(emotional)’ Album Launch Tour 202
4
Live in Concert at the Baroque Room, Carrington Hotel

SATURDAY 4th May 2024
Doors Open 6pm | Show Start 7pm

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


Coral Snakes Legends and prolific alt artists Dave Graney & Clare Moore Unveil New Album “(strangely)(emotional)”

“As I have said many times nobody else is making music like this. A combination of the familiar tropes of rock and pop intermingled with literary lyrical explorations, jazz elements, ambient sounds, and a degree of abstraction masking astute commentary on the state of the world today. There are more ideas in these 15 songs than most artists achieve in their careers”. – Bob Osborne – DIFFERENT NOISES – Salford UK

Dave Graney and Clare Moore have in recent years been swinging between song focused studio albums (like this one) and more band focused rock albums, (like their previous set in A Mistly).
(strangely)(emotional) is so carefully titled because that’s the age we live in. A person has to be sure and careful of their words. It’s a sensitive area, the world, in 2024. Even though it is also brutal, viral and violent all at once. (The ground we walk upon is contested and just holding together with surface tension). So the words are quarantined from each other, in parentheses so as not to be qualifying or commenting on the other.

The sounds on the album come from vintage drum machines, electric (six and twelve string) and acoustic (nylon and steel string) guitars, pedal steel, harp, harmonica, electric piano, drums, vibes, marimba, mellotron and tenor and soprano sax.
The words are rich, playful and very personal. Dave Graney is a proud Creative Creep.
(strangely)(emotional) comes after a year where Graney and Moore toured the country to joy and acclaim with their 90s band Dave Graney and the Coral Snakes. This album was cooking away in the background all the while.
It’s a Dave Graney and Clare Moore album. They’ve always done their own thing. This time, it’s (strangely)(emotional).

“Last night (Sat) at the Great Club in Sydney’s Marrickville, a rolling triumph. Dave, solo and acoustic with brand new songs, a brace of wistful glances back at childhood, fam and hometown, and not quite like anything that has come before from this extraordinary maker of sonic stories. Then more with lifetime offsider and partner of all labours CLARE MOORE, multi-instrumentaling it on melodica then piano before making those drums sing and wail like few can. And then a ‘power trio’ as Dave described it, and it was, with the mid-set appearance of a local (Sydney) bassplayer, Gregory Thorsby, who knocked everyone flat with jazz and funk stylings that would not have been out of place in Weather Report, Sly And The Family Stone or the classic Miles Davis rosary of albums from 1967-74. This, a perfect reinvention of all the diamonds from the vast Graney-Moore back catalogue. All this and ‘Traumatic Shit,’ a kind of talking blues that gave Derek And Clive a run for their money. We split our britches laughing, I tells ya. Yea, among the two sets of wonder and stardust, personal faves like ‘That Old Swagger’, ‘Wilco Got No Wilco’, ‘Night Of The Wolverine’, uberclassic ‘You’re JUst Too Hip, Baby’, and an encore featuring a mighty Ronsonesque wigout guitar solo that took off the tops of our heads. 
The new album ‘( strangely) ( emotional)’ is out in April. All I can say is GET IN”. –
Mark Cornwall author and musician 

Songwriter and performer Dave Graney and multi-instrumentalist Clare Moore were in the Moodists from 1978 to 1986. Then the White Buffaloes/Coral Snakes 1987-1997. Then the Royal Dave Graney Show and Lurid Yellow Mist to the mistLY. They have also been involved in several feature film soundtracks and Dave Graney released his fourth book, a book of lyrics called THERE HE GOES WITH HIS EYE OUT (collected lyrics 1980-2023).
Dave Graney was awarded ‘Best Male Vocalist’ at the ARIA Music Awards of 1996 for his work on The Soft ‘n’ Sexy Sound, while “Feelin’ Kinda Sporty” won ‘Best Video’ in 1997 and he has received seven other ARIA Award nominations. Clare Moore Joint award with Jeanie Lewis and Kate Ceberano for Lifetime Achievement award at the 2023 Australian Women In Music Awards.

Dave and Clare will be performing as a trio with Greg Thorsby on bass.

FUSION BOUTIQUE presents SHARK & FOX | Emily-Rose Sarkova (AUS) & Jaron Freeman-Fox (CAN) in Concert at Katoomba Lighthouse, Blue Mountains

Fusion Boutique Presents
Shark & Fox | Emily-Rose Sarkova & Jaron Freeman-Fox (CAN) – Trio
w/ Special Guest
Kieran Sawyer
Live in Concert at the Katoomba Lighthouse

SATURDAY 13th April 2024
Doors Open 6:00pm | Show Start 7:00pm

Venue: KATOOMBA LIGHTHOUSE
126 Victoria St, Katoomba, Blue Mountains NSW 2780

International folk act brings virtuosic music to the Blue Mountains

Emily-Rose Sarkova (accordion/vocals/synthesiser) and Jaron Freeman-Fox (fiddle/vocals/viola d’amore/fretless guitar) are Shark and Fox, an irresistible Canadian-Australian duo who shape-shift between many musical traditions to create an exciting sound on the forefront of folk music. Joined by the thrum of a guest drummer Rose Callaghan, this duo becomes a trio in their inaugural tour of Australia.

After meeting in Australia and then spending a month in Toronto composing and recording their debut album, Shark and Fox are embarking on their first Australian tour. Between performances at the National Folk Festival (ACT) and Fairbridge Folk Festival (WA), they will be sharing their music with the Blue Mountains at Katoomba Lighthouse on Saturday 13th April, presented by Fusion Boutique.

Frenetic Bulgarian dances, haunting Appalachian twangs, droning Irish reels, Swedish polskas and songs that speak into existence the ephemeral mysteries of life, all effortlessly yet meticulously woven together by the vast shared history of the fiddle and accordion as musical companions. This irresistible Canadian-Australian collaboration shape-shifts between traditions, occasionally to the point that the instruments themselves transform; a fiddle to viol d’amore or fretless guitar, an accordion to modular synthesiser, all driven by the infectious clatter, thunder and swish of a drum that serves as both a trampoline for the imagination and morse code from the brain to the body.

Jaron’s projects have garnered multiple Canadian music awards, whilst Emily-Rose has been an ARIA and Art Music Award finalist. 

“Playing with Jaron is like getting the ultimate musical adrenaline fix” says Emily-Rose, “Audiences are going to be immersed in music from a vast history of accordion and fiddle folk music and be surprised by the places this music can go.”

More about Jaron

Reared in the mountains of Canada’s northwest, and steeped in study under the great traditional musicians of India, Scandinavia, Siberia, and Bulgaria, Jaron Freeman-Fox forms a new narrative of what the violin is capable of, and compels the listener to take his unique refraction of world music on it’s own terms.

Jaron’s singular style was encouraged from an early age as an apprentice of Canada’s renowned fiddle pioneer, the late Oliver Shroer who’s violin Jaron still plays.

Jaron went on to study Carnatic classical music in South India, hardanger fiddle in Norway, Morin Khuur in Mongolia, and Gadulka in Bulgaria. Synthesizing his myriad influences, Jaron’s own band Jaron Freeman-Fox & The Opposite of Everything, toured tirelessly from 2011-2017 across North America, Eastern and Western Europe, Asia and Australia.

The band’s self-titled album garnered 3 Canadian folk Music Awards, the instrumental category for the Independent Music Awards and the International Songwriting Contest.  Since receiving the the KM Hunter Award for excellence in Music, in 2017, Jaron has been busy producing records for many projects including his own, while developing a new repertoire and electro-acoustic performance environment, based around his customised 12-string viola d’amore and fretless guitar.

More about Emily-Rose

Emily-Rose Sarkova is one of Australia’s most vivacious musical chameleons. Her songs and soundscapes are a kaleidoscope dream of contemporary folk, where songwriting meets world jazz and electro-acoustic experiments. 

Most recently a finalist in the prestigious Art Music Awards Best Jazz Work for her album ‘Upon These Open Skins’ with ‘Emily-Rose & The Wild Things’, Emily-Rose’s music is always highly crafted and boundary pushing. She graduated from Sydney Conservatorium in classical piano (2010) having studied in Germany on a Baden-Wurtenburg scholarship, and in France with renowned professor John Paul Sevilla. In expanding her instrumental palette to include accordion, bandoneon, synthesisers and voice, her co-creation and management of several musical groups have included: Tango group ‘Tángalo’, who received a 2014 Australia Council for the Arts JUMP mentorship, allowing Emily-Rose to study in Argentina, and tour with Latin Grammy nominated “Duo Ramirez-Satorre”, and world-music project ‘Chaika’, whose third studio album ‘Arrow’ was nominated for the 2019 ARIA Best World Music Album.

+ Special Guest Kieran Sawyer

Kieran Sawyer is a guitarist specialising in the fascinating and alluring colours of Tango and Argentine folkloric music. Based in the Blue Mountains of NSW, from a young age he has always been intrigued by different folk rhythms, which has seen his musical journey spanning a number of genres and led to his specialisation in the harmony and pulse of Tango and Argentine folk music. 

Kieran has studied in Australia and overseas in Spain and South America, spending 6 months living and absorbing the musical culture of Buenos Aires in 2019, where he studied tango and folklore guitar intensively. Kieran performs with artists such as Diana Reyes Flamenco School, a bandoneón-guitar duo with Argentine based Owen Salomé and currently performs with Canberra-based Argentinian bandoneonist Rodolfo Caivano.

His solo repertoire includes a gorgeous selection of classic and modern Argentinean Tango and Folk music, including some of his own imaginative arrangements. A truly magical start to this evening’s journey through sonic traditions.

STEVE POLTZ ‘The 22nd Time’s A Charm’ Australian Tour
Live in Concert at the Baroque Room, Carrington Hotel

Steve Poltz (USA) is BACK !

‘The 22nd Time’s A Charm’ Australian Tour

After flooring audiences at Bluesfest, Port Fairy Folk Festival, National Folk Festival, Blue Mountains Music Festival and ECHO Festival and club shows across the country in 2023, world renowned troubadour Steve Poltz returns to Australian shores for the 22nd time.

Some people start life with a plan. Not Steve. He opens himself up to the universe in a way most of us will never be loose enough to achieve, and the universe responds with a wink, a seemingly bottomless well of inspiration, and the talent to truly connect with an audience.

With a cult following that includes fellow musicians, regular folks and festival goers who stumble onto his performances, there’s no common denominator to Steve’s fans. Born in Halifax, Nova Scotia and raised in San Diego, CA Steve toured and recorded with San Diego cult favourites The Rugburns (they still play annual sold-out reunion shows). But it was through his creative partnership with Jewel that he vaulted into the national spotlight; co-writing her multiplatinum Billboard Hot 100-busting smash, “You Were Meant For Me,” and continues to work with her to this day.

Over the years, the Nashville-based troubadour has built a fascinating solo catalogue, earmarked by his debut, ‘One Left Shoe’, ‘Dreamhouse’, ‘Folk Singer‘, and 2019’s ‘Shine On’. No Depression crowned him, “A sardonic provocateur with a lighthearted acoustic-driven wit, suggesting at times a sunnier, less psychedelic Todd Snider, or maybe a less wan, washed Jackson Brown,” while the Associated Press dubbed him “part busker, part Iggy Pop and part Robin Williams, a freewheeling folkie with a quick wit and big heart.”

Among other collaborations, GRAMMY-winning bluegrass phenom Billy Strings tapped him to co-write “Leaders” on 2021’s Renewal and he’s co-written with Molly Tuttle, Sierra Hull, Nicki Bluhm, Oliver Wood and even Mojo Nixon.

…  and when he comes to your town, he’ll say, as he does every night, “This is the best show I’ve ever played.” And hell, maybe it just is.

Ultimately, Steve never needed a plan.
He’s something of a natural, after all.

A powerful vocalist and engaging story-teller, Australian/Fijian singer-songwriter Andrea Kirwin began her songwriting journey when she picked up a guitar at age 21 and dropped out of her arts/law degree in Canberra to tour the East Coast of Australia with her first band, the Andi and George band. During 2005 – 2008 she booked independent tours and travelled with the renegade collective of housemates and uni friends to many Folk Festivals in an old retired school bus and performed at The Dreaming Festival, Woodford Folk Festival and Womadelaide. Together Andi and George released 4 DIY albums, which hold a special place in the hearts of the Canberrans who attended some of their legendary gigs at The Front Cafe in Lyneham, including an album launch for their Sun and Moon double album that was shut down by the Riot police back in 2008. In 2009 Andrea went solo and founded Peace Run Records and Agency and went on to release 5 albums under her own label, receiving Queensland Music award nominations for her second album The Story of Us and won the QMA award for Best Children’s song for a co-write with Nyssa Ray, ‘Love Everybody’ and received 2 x QMA nominations in the Folk and World Music categories for her most recent album, Bloom (released in May, 2021).

Andrea’s original music has been influenced by her childhood growing up in Townsville as the daughter of a Fijian Preacher and her gospel roots can be felt in her vocal style. A lover of acoustic folk and soul, Andrea’s originals use melodies and arrangements that form a lasting impression on the listener and wax and wane between Easy listening tunes and high energy songs. She often performs solo or as a duo with her fiancé Claire Evelynn on the Celtic Harp and currently is performing as her 13 piece Folk/Funk/World Fusion big band The Yama-Nui Social Club at select Festivals as well.

DANIEL CHAMPAGNE ‘Australian Summer Tour 2024’
Live in Concert at the Baroque Room, Carrington Hotel

SATURDAY 17th February 2024
Doors Open 6pm | Show Start 7pm

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


We are very pleased to welcome Daniel back again to the Blue Mountains and after the last SOLD OUT shows we advise booking early to avoid disappointment!

Daniel Champagne lives and breathes live music. Playing upwards of 250 shows a year he is passionate about spreading it around the world and on the back of an action packed 2023 traversing the globe to rave reviews he will bring his tour back home for a string of NSW, VIC & QLD shows with a brand new album – ‘The Pursuit’

Growing up in the Bega Valley, on the Far South Coast of New South Wales the story goes that the young singer-songwriter and one of a kind guitar virtuoso first picked up his instrument of choice as a 5-year-old following in the footsteps of a musical father. He began writing songs at 12, training classically throughout his teens and performing wherever he could, honing his craft and developing the dynamite live show that he is renowned for today. At 18 he finished school, turned professional and hit the road without looking back.
The following 15 years have seen him independently release 7 studio albums, tour relentlessly around the globe, play some of the biggest festivals under the sun and share stages with the likes of Tommy Emmanuel, INXS, John Butler, Lucinda Williams, Ani DiFranco, Judy Collins and Rodrigo y Gabriela.

He has been described as “the finest guitar player of this generation”, “a leading light in acoustic music” and “a performer that must be seen to be believed” and from January to March 2024, music lovers in NSW, VIC and QLD will be treated to an intimate live experience not to be missed!

WHAT THE PRESS SAY…
“The word Prodigy seems to entirely fall short of this soft-spoken young man’s skills, he coaxes sounds and melodies out of his instrument that literally drop jaws.” The Calgary Herald, CANADA
“Today I saw the future of Folk – Festival goers flocking in the thousands towards the main stage to witness a young musical phenomenon from Australia dish out an absolute show-stopper.” The Firefly Column, USA
“Daniel Champagne is a crossroads. Fusing the strong traditions of Blues, Folk and other roots art with pop showmanship and admirable lyrical ability. I firmly believe that he will become an ambassador for roots music in a time where it desperately needs representation.” The Indie Blender, CANADA
“reinventing roots guitar” Rhythms Magazine, AUSTRALIA
“Watching Daniel Champagne perform is a once in a lifetime experience. He is a true prodigy that plays like no one else could possibly play unless they spent at least two lifetimes studying the art.” BW Review, NEW ZEALAND
“Daniel Champagne exudes a natural ease on stage, as he sings poignant lyrics and beautifully crafted melodies that invariably whisk the heart up with grand romanticism. Coupled with an exhilarating guitar talent that transcends mere acoustic playing to replicate a whole band, Champagne is just magical” Themusic.com.au, AUSTRALIA
“You feel as if he just invented the instrument yesterday and was discovering its possibilities afresh” Ted Gioia (American jazz critic and music historian)

Daniel Aaron is an indie-roots outfit of one – soulful, bare-footed, multi-instrumental. He’s got groove tighter than the federal climate budget, rhythm raucous enough for the toilet paper aisle mid-lockdown and style harder to pin than a chip packet in the wind. Centred in earnest lyricism and the rhythm of the yidaki (didgeridoo), Daniel’s songs will have you doting on beloved people, revering the landscape, and dancing with zest.

With the release of his debut single ‘Running Backwards’ in 2018, an indie pop track, Daniel has been cast into view of the Australian public after winning the Triple J Unearthed competition to be featured on the lineup of Australia’s biggest regional festival, Groovin The Moo, among acts like Paul Kelly, Royal Blood, Ball Park Music and more.|

Following his GTM performance, Daniel bunkered down over the course of the last 3 years to work meticulously on a captivating debut album. With exceptional collaborations, poetic themes and stunning production Daniel Aaron’s recently released, self-titled debut album is a work of art, set to leave a lasting impact on listeners.

Migret is an indie-electronica band from Sydney, Australia, that formed in 2019. The band is made up of Argentinan-born couple Betsy and Fran.
They released their first studio album in 2019 entitled “Un monton de casas” that was released independently by the band (currently sold out).
After a successful tour of their home country and a few single releases, the band is now building their home on wheels with the intentions to travel around the island.
Intimate compositions and a delicate voice that does not elude emotionality. All wrapped in an intimate atmosphere with guitar delays, ambient synths and minimalist sequences.

“The result would be “Un montón de casas”, an EP of subtle compositions. With a delicate voice that does not elude emotionality, they sing about airports, boats that go nowhere and old notebooks that burn. All wrapped in an intimate atmosphere with guitar delays, synthesizers and minimalist programming.” – diario contexto
“Migret generates ethereal atmospheres, quite close to those sketched by post-rock bands like Explosions In The Sky, but it does it in a much more emotional tune and with the protagonism of a female voice that tells stories of misunderstandings and proposes a charming and accurate ambient pop.” – indie hoy

Catherine Traicos is a classically-trained pianist, self-taught guitarist, and visual artist hailing from Perth via Zimbabwe. She has also been known to haunt the cobblestoned backstreets of Melbourne, the picture-postcard city sunsets of Sydney, and the charming parks of Adelaide.
A critically acclaimed singer-songwriter, Catherine Traicos has graced the diverse stages of Nashville’s iconic Bluebird Cafe, The Sydney Opera House Concert Hall, the Quarry Amphitheatre in Perth and the Junkyard in Maitland.

Catherine’s passion for songwriting and her determination and commitment to music have seen her play International Arts Festivals around Australia, as well as appear overseas at the Americana Festival and the Live at Heart Festival in Sweden. Catherine has supported significant musical acts including Beth Orton, the Mountain Goats, Dirty Projectors, Rob Snarski, Simone Felice and Spiral Stairs. Catherine’s work has been lauded by Rolling Stone Magazine, the Age, the Sydney Morning Herald, and she was named Unpaved’s Female Artist of the Year (2012).

Catherine worked relentlessly through the pandemic, releasing a distance recorded double A side 7” record (Love Hz and Analog Heart Studios), an ep ‘Choose Your Own Light’ (Tiny Music Studios), culminating in recording a full length distance album, ‘The Nashville Record’ (out on August 25, 2023) in both Perth and Nashville. This was completed at The Doghouse Studios, where the likes of Dolly Parton and Alison Krauss have recorded. She swiftly followed this up with a new cycle of songs recorded with Anna Laverty in Perth earlier this year. Catherine is now set to release two studio albums within the space of a year. As well as this, she has engaged with the songwriting community in Perth through the APRA 321 sessions and also through the WOMPP (Women of Music Production Perth) music camp where she was one of a select few chosen to collaborate with Stella Donnelly, Jaguar Jonze and Sparrows.

Soaring on the back of strong yet vulnerable vocals, Catherine’s work is raw and emotive, strikingly melodic and a perfect hybrid of the personal and professional craft of a unique voice in Australian music.

“…redolent in parts of the ragged, eerie estrogen blues of PJ Harvey or the gaunt bluegrass sonnets of Gillian Welch”
(Album of the Month) The Age, Melbourne Magazine
“These unsettling blues-influenced songs simmer with a sense of noir, an impressive meeting of the earthy song-writing of Beth Orton with the grim undercurrents of, say, Portishead.”
Barnaby Smith, Rolling Stone Magazine
“This album may have been hard to make, but its eventual birth marks Traicos as an artist of exceptional poise and talent, as many of us have known for years.” Samuel J Fell, Sydney Morning Herald

Blue Mountains Dark Country Musician Eyles is a captivating figure crafting haunting narratives and melodies that draw listeners into the shadows of his world. With a genre-blurring sound that fuses elements of folk, blues, and a hint of eerie allure. His lyrical storytelling paints vivid sonic landscapes that linger long after the final chord has faded.

Known for presenting unique and talented acts to the Blue Mountains over the last 14 years, Fusion Boutique is collaborating with the Old City Bank to bring the upper mountains even more quality live music at this casual and relaxed, iconic English style pub.
The OCB was built In 1912 as Katoomba’s first bank building, converted to the Carrington Saloon Bar in the 1930’s and in 1992 the bar was reopened after a change of ownership and a major renovation of the entire property. Since reopening, The Old City Bank Brasserie has won many awards for offering consistently good quality, innovative Pub food. In 2010 it was inducted into the Australian Hotels Hall of Fame.

Depth of heart and sweetness of soul are two things that flow freely through the music of the beloved Australian folk singer, Sarah Humphreys. From delicate folk music to personal reveries, vibrant collaborations and rousing alt-country songs, Sarah has the ability to infuse it all with her innate sensitivity and an artisanal touch in the craft of song-writing.

Her fourth solo record, STRANGE BEAUTY is another tour de force of emotional and honest song-writing built on melody, melancholy and that sweet and untethered voice.

Sarah Humphreys has toured with and worked alongside artists including Katie Noonan, Kasey Chambers, Sara Storer, Fanny Lumsden, Liz Frencham, Loren Kate, Melody Pool, Kim Richey (USA), Charlie Parr (USA), Blind Boys Of Alabama (USA), Harry Hookey, James Reyne, Mark Seymour (Hunters & Collectors), Kevin Bennett, Glenn Hannah, Felicity Urquart, William Crighton and many more.
Sarah is an award winning session harmony singer, singing on ARIA award winning records, working as a singer for ABC Kids on Giggle & Hoot, ABC Kids education music and the annual Sing Australia Songbook and accompanying CD.

Her songs have been featured in Australian tv and film, including Charlie & Boots, Home & Away, Neighbours, Packed To The Rafters and more.

She is a beloved artist in Australia and features regularly on Australian radio including Triple J, high rotation on ABC Country, ABC National, Double J, RRR and is supported by countless community radio stations across the country.

“Sarah makes singing seem so effortless, graceful and easy that she leaves us feeling only the pure emotion of the words, of the song. She inspires other singers to higher heights. She sounds to me like the warm embrace of a wise, benevolent, beloved sister. She is the Karen Carpenter of our age, but with added spunk and grit.” – Matt Tonks

“From the first time I heard Sarah Humphreys’ beautiful voice I became her biggest fan. She writes songs from the heart that are real and captivating – just like the person she is.” – Kasey Chambers

Tim’s songs provoke beautiful, nostalgic and charming imagery with energetic musical warmth.

“I always love seeing Tim play, if I’m not smiling before he’s hit the stage, I definitely am once he’s finished. And booking him for a support slot is always super easy because he’s a professional, easy-going dude with a lot of music to share with the world.” – Xani Kolac The Twoks

After spending years in a musical wasteland, Mandy Hawkes began to write songs again, and became preoccupied with singing about mortality, end times and other serious themes. Raised on a steady diet of Hymns and Dylan, Mandy’s unconventional voice is equal parts weary soul traveller and folk storyteller. She sings authentic songs that will move even the stoniest of hearts, marrying folk traditions with Australian country.

In 2017 she released her debut EP The Water Was Deep, a collection of songs contemplating death, afterlife and Hawkes’ religious upbringing – recorded and co-produced with Bill Chambers at Chambers Avenue Studio. 2023 hails the release of the Northern Rivers folksinger’s debut full length album We Were Just Kids, recorded and co-produced with Jordan Power. This body of work exhibits more mature songwriting and diverse sounds, yet maintains Hawkes’ deeply personal and authentic narratives. It charts a path through the various stages of relationship breakdown and grief, with some reflections on childhood and the human condition.

“Hawkes has a background rich in text and music, and a desire to explore, through her music, the question of what it means to be on this earth, and to make sense of it. Her songs reflect this thoughtfulness and, as her heart is fully in them, connect movingly with the listener.” – Sunburnt Country Music

“Mandy’s music is real! She writes songs that assure us she’s actually lived what she’s singing about! And I love her voice!” – Bill Chambers

Mandy has performed at Mullumbimby Music Festival, Tamworth Country Music Festival, The River Folk Festival and was a grand finalist at the 2022 Gympie Muster Talent Search.
Joining Mandy on the night will be Christina Webster performing on banjo, harmonies and keys and Sam Troy on pedal steel.

BANK NIGHTS – CORMAC GRANT (Newcastle) at The Old City Bank, Katoomba, Blue Mountains

Fusion Boutique & The Carrington Hotel Present
‘BANK NIGHTS’ showcase sessions with
CORMAC GRANT (Newcastle)
Live at The Old City Bank
FREE LIVE MUSIC

Friday 17th November 2023
Show Starts 8pm

Venue: THE OLD CITY BANK BAR
15 Katoomba St, Katoomba NSW 2780, Blue Mountains.

Known for presenting unique and talented acts to the Blue Mountains over the last 13 years, Fusion Boutique is collaborating with the Old City Bank to bring the upper mountains even more quality live music at this casual and relaxed, iconic English style pub.
The OCB was built In 1912 as Katoomba’s first bank building, converted to the Carrington Saloon Bar in the 1930’s and in 1992 the bar was reopened after a change of ownership and a major renovation of the entire property. Since reopening, The Old City Bank Brasserie has won many awards for offering consistently good quality, innovative Pub food. In 2010 it was inducted into the Australian Hotels Hall of Fame.
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

With his debut EP, 2021’s You Caught Me Smiling, Cormac glided onto the scene with a silky body of work on youth, love and soul. A subtly confident vignette of Grant’s funk sensibilities. But contrary to the silky ease of his music, Cormac Grant isn’t one for complacency. Throughout a year of non stop gigging and honing his production skills, Cormac started searching for a way to build upon his already well established sound. This became his latest Project; Into The Mystic, which lies somewhere between a hazy road trip and a kaleidoscopic free fall. Amidst a lush canopy of psychedelia driven funk and soul, Cormac assembles subtly captivating riffs, verdant harmonies and luxurious rhythms to create a vivid mosaic of getting older, and learning to remove yourself from the picture. It’s a mature, delicately curated collection which captures the light of Cormac’s past work and shines it through a new, beautifully fractured lens.
Say hello to Cormac Grant’s newest release, ‘spacebetween’, out now on all platforms. For the past year, the Newcastle, NSW based singer-songwriter buried himself in Jazz, 90s Hip-Hop and Psychedelic Soul only to emerge with an amalgamation of his signature lyricism and the essence of the woozy rhythms and grooves he dived into. The downtempo, beat focused ‘spacebetween’ plays like a late night drive – moody, melancholic and chilled. ‘spacebetween’ is the single from Cormac’s upcoming sophomore EP ‘Into The Mystic’

Les Thomas is a Truth-telling troubadour sharing stories and songs to move, enlighten and inspire.
“There are no riches but the riches of love. And there’s nothing you can’t rise above”. Whether it’s the sustaining invocation to his young son, or the pain and desperation of our forgotten peoples, Les Thomas sings true to the heart of every listener. His intense lyrical style, and impassioned musical presentation enthral with deftly woven stories that we can’t walk away from. His songs remain on our lips for days after they are heard. Les Thomas is the champion of generations of Melbourne songwriters through his renowned Unpaved Songwriter Sessions. And the passion he brings to writing and presenting the songs of our times is an experience you will feel rewards your soul, making him a must-see artist.

Les Thomas sets his lyricism to the sounds of country-folk and Americana while drawing inspiration from the likes of Woody Guthrie, Bob Dylan, Leonard Cohen and Steve Earle as well as local legends like Archie Roach, Kev Carmody and Paul Kelly.
Coming from a culturally and racially diverse family background, and with decades of grass-roots activism as a unionist and social justice advocate, Les has a strong and direct connection to his community in Naarm/Melbourne and beyond.

His music has always been in solidarity with the oppressed, refugees, migrants, dispossessed, socially excluded and marginalised peoples and a good proportion of his live performances have been at rallies, picket lines and on the back of trucks at protests.
Over the years, Les has also shared a lot of music writing and interviewing, helping to promote local artists via the Unpaved website and songwriter sessions at The Old Bar and POME Richmond which got to feature people like Liz Stinger, Marlon Williams, Courtney Barnett, Van Walker and many others. He’s interviewed a wide variety of local and international artists including Steve Earle, Jason Isbell, David Bromberg, Eric Bibb and Valerie June.

His debut single ‘Song for Selva’ is based on a letter from a Tamil asylum seeker who had been detained without charge for 37 months. After strong community radio support for the song in the first week after its release, Selva was removed from Broadmeadows detention centre into “community detention”.
Les is preparing to release his new album “All My Friends Are Superstars” in September 2023 with production by Stephen Grady (The Ahern Brothers). He’ll be touring and promoting the album extensively over the following months and into 2024.

www.facebook.com/lesthomasmusic

Support will be from Bradley Christmas of Sydney Alt country act “Copperline” who will also join Les on keys, for a one off unique show in the Blue Mountains.
Since cutting his teeth in the 90’s with prog rockers Arkenstone, Brad’s musical journey has taken him in some weird and wonderful directions. He’s been a hired toured gun for Steve Kilby (the Church), Jeff Duff and Peter Fenton (Crow) and spent many years living and playing music in the U.K. and Japan, where he wrote and performed music for TV with the likes of Orlando Bloom and Marty Friedman (Megadeth).
With his latest project Copperline, Brad has indulged his life-long passion for classic narrative song writing, Americana and twang. Since releasing their debut record Rusty Fords and Weatherboards, the band has become a festival favourite with appearances at Tamworth, the Blue Mountains Music Festival and Country Rocks among many others.

Isabel Rumble invites listeners into a cocoon of reflection on the subtleties of love, nature and human relationships. Drawing upon a strong folk roots influence, Rumble offers a contemporary sound likened to Laura Marling and Mazzy Star. Isabel’s intuitively crafted songs define an observant and soul-stirring emerging young artist.

Growing up on Yuin country on the far south coast of NSW gifted Isabel with a strong connection to the land, a theme returned to often in her songwriting. After a period of study in Naarm/Melbourne, Isabel has since lived beside Austrian alps, amongst Finnish forests and in the German countryside. She currently resides at the foot of the ancient mountain Kunanyi in Nipaluna/Hobart.|

Isabel has opened for the likes of acclaimed folk duo Lior & Domini, guitar virtuoso Daniel Champagne, and New Zealand’s Holly Arrowsmith. She has played at festivals including Cygnet Folk Festival, Party in the Paddock, Cobargo Folk Festival, PANAMA, Dark Mofo and Junction Arts Festival. Isabel was selected from over 400 applicants to partake in the 2023 Women in Music Mentor program through AIR (Australian Independent Record Labels Association).

Following her emergence into the Australian music scene last year with standout singles Precious Burden and Solitary Dreaming, Rumble has seen widespread national and community radio play and a run of sold out shows in Victoria and Tasmania. Isabel’s debut album Bird Be Brave was released March 31st. Recorded with Tasmanian producer Luke Plumb (The Mae Trio, Ruth Hazleton) the full length album is a powerful debut from one of Australia’s newest contemporary-folk voices.

“captivatingly beautiful stories” – Franklin Folk Club
“maturity and sensitivity beyond her years” – Drumbeat magazine, Folk Federation of Tasmania “Beautifully made … a sublime few minutes of stillness and peacefulness.”

FUSION BOUTIQUE presents BEN LEE vs THE COLLAPSE OF THE MUSIC INDUSTRY TOUR w/ DJ DadBod in Concert at Baroque Room, Katoomba, Blue Mountains

Craft Music & Fusion Boutique Present
BEN LEE vs THE COLLAPSE OF THE MUSIC INDUSTRY TOUR
+ DJ DadBod
Live in Concert at the Baroque Room, Carrington Hotel

FRIDAY 6th October 2023
Doors Open 7:30pm | Show Start 8pm

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

In one corner, we have an industry all but obliterated by corporate interests, streaming platforms and a pandemic, now overtaken by conformity, materialism and fear. In the other, stands a solitary figure, an unpredictable maverick born of the name Ben Lee, preparing to dance, to bob and weave one more time, as the crowd holds its collective breath, opening their mouths only to gasp in awe, or to munch on popcorn, while simultaneously checking their social media applications.

What does it take for a musician/storyteller/raconteur to not only survive, but thrive, under the current conditions? This is a concert experience that will reveal all… as audiences around Australia witness with their own eyes this freak of nature, now over three decades into his career, reviving the songs that made him a household name, mixed in with new material that Rolling Stone Magazine recently labelled “the best of his career”, all delivered with his trademark “am I joking or not?” sense-of-humour and a relationship to singing on key that can only be called “approximate”. Our hero promises crowds an evening of music, storytelling and pure entertainment.

December 2021 welcomed the release of Demi’s debut EP Return. Featuring a thumping 70s inspired sound that swings from Wild Woman, a heart wrenching salute to femininity to the upbeat and highly danceable Grow, Demi has earned regular rotation on ABC Sunshine Coast, Triple J Unearthed and 4ZZZ.

With an impressive resume that includes opening for Karl S. Williams’ sell-out Brisbane show, the Sunshine Coasts dweller deliver refreshingly wild vocals sweeps over audiences like the ocean water that runs through her veins.
The sheer verve and honesty of Demi Cashas performances have made her a regular fixture at blues and folk venues and festival stages including Caloundra Music Festival, The Bearded Lady, It’s Still A Secret and many more.
Whether solo or performing with her band, you can hear a pin drop when Demi Casha takes the stage, but what follows is an emotional grenade that you’ll never forget.

“Demi Casha smoked the Howl & Moan Records Stage at Falls Festival in 2019, her incendiary live set felt like seeing the love child of Janis Joplin & Patti Smith! Strong, powerful vocals matched with a solid groove! Just Epic!” – Mario Fraietta, curator Howl & Moan Records Stage, Falls Festival Byron Bay 2019.
“Demi Casha’s raw energy and delivery of vocals transcends back to the 70’s likened to Grace Slick from Jefferson Airplane. An emerging artist to be seen live.” – Cara Robinson, Hat Fitz & Cara.
“Demi is an incredible raw talent, her voice is unmistakable, powerful and beautiful. I can’t wait to see her career blossom in the years to come!” – Andrea Kirwin, Owner of Peace Run Records.

The band features the artful banjo work of Tanya Bradley, paired with the deft fiddle and soulful vocals of Danielle Vita, 1st place winner of 2020 Deer Creek Fiddlers Convention (USA) vocalist award. The duo’s original songs tell raw stories of womanhood which are transporting, honest and effortless.

After four years collaborating in different countries, they reunited—this time in Australia. They have been featured on ABC Country’s ‘Saturday Night Country’, Bluegrass Country Radio’s ‘Foggy Hollow’, WDVX Tennessee’s ‘Sweetgrass’ and Blues & Roots Radio, among many others.

Their 2004 album ‘Looking for the Sun’ is still considered a hidden gem, with an incredible line-up of musicians that delivered passionate and energetic live shows of the time.

Within Nolan’s music, mysterious and shimmering chords unite his sound. Once quaintly described as ‘Darlinghurst Country’ his sound unites elements of folk, country, rock ‘n’ roll and ambient atmospheres fusing Nolan’s passion for intensely charged electric guitar and finger-picked acoustic guitar.
Jack’s melodic story telling has him right at home performing either solo with just an acoustic guitar or fronting his four piece band.

Jack’s next offering – JINDABYNE – his next LP is set for release in August 2023 sees Nolan hit the road to visit the towns the towns and regions to perform with versatility, either solo, or as a due, trio or full band.

Campbell’s blend of folk, blues and country aligns him with modern Americana but it’s clear his influences are wide ranging, from iconic artists such as Joni Mitchell, Nick Drake, Bob Dylan, The Beatles and The Allman Brothers to contemporary songwriters such as Paul Kelly, Neil Finn and Bernard Fanning.

Campbell’s debut Solo EP ‘a second glance’ is out now.

Campbell’s songs are a side walk cafe, a mood, a glimpse in the mirror. His voice is authentic and intimate, floating with a warmth and a country quality filtered through urban dust.

“Some songs are evocative of a time and place through the singer’s voice; some through the music. Some have the entire package, so that you slip into the song and feel completely transported to that time and place – and this is the case with the new Americana single ‘Bring to the Dawn’ by Pete Campbell” – Sophie Hamley – SUNBURNT COUNTRY MUSIC

Fusion Boutique Presents
‘SnarskiCircusLindyBand’ ROB SNARSKI (THE BLACKEYED SUSANS) & LINDY MORRISON (THE GO-BETWEENS) W/ BAND
Live in Concert at the Baroque Room, Carrington Hotel

SATURDAY 27th May 2023
Doors Open 7pm | Show Start 8pm

Venue: BAROQUE ROOM 15 Katoomba St, Katoomba, NSW 2780 Blue Mountains.

A lot has happened since Lindy Morrison vowed never to see Rob Snarski perform again. Morrison approached the singer-songwriter post show, having attended a liquid lunch and feeling a tad vulnerable, she berated him for embracing sadness and lacking up-tempo, finger-snapping, melodic numbers. En garde!!

Not long after, the two began performing around the country in duo mode – before roping in ‘Evil’ Graham Lee [Triffids/pedal steel], Shane O’Mara [Rebecca’s Empire/Chris Wilson/Silversound] and more recently Dan Kelly [nephew of Paul] to form ‘supergroup’ …SnarskiCircusLindyBand

After touring briefly together, arguing incessantly along the way, they somehow agreed to record a batch of new songs Snarski had been conjuring with this band in mind.

So, with the new mini-album “Someone Said That Someone Said” in their pocket [due for release in early May] the group of misfits hit the road in the depths of Australia’s autumnal months to play their new tunes including “Shane O’Mara Wore Mascara”, “Since I Slept With You Everybody Wants To Sleep With Me” [a co-write with Lindy] and take a deep dive into Snarski’s less humorous, narrative driven, song writing past.

“Someone Said That Someone Said” available in May on all streaming services and via MGM Distribution

FUSION BOUTIQUE presents MIDNIGHT TEA PARTY – EP Launch + COOKING WITH CAUSTIC in Concert at Baroque Room, Katoomba, Blue Mountains

Fusion Boutique Presents
MIDNIGHT TEA PARTY
‘Electro Bazaar’ EP Launch
+ Special Guests COOKING WITH CAUSTIC
Live in Concert at the Baroque Room, Carrington Hotel

SATURDAY 29th April 2023
Doors Open 7pm | Show Start 8pm

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

Hailing from Sydney’s Inner West and Blue Mountains, Midnight Tea Party blend the hypnotic melodies of the Balkans with dubstep, jazz and rock. Now in their 10th year together as a band, their dynamic live sets are packed with irresistible energy, musical flair and party vibes.

“Midnight Tea Party dance through an infectious concoction of rock, gypsy and dub to craft a sound that belongs entirely to themselves.” – Happy Mag

Since the release of their album “Massilia” in 2018 Midnight Tea Party have played festivals such as Woodford Folk Festival, Bellingen Winter Music and Gumball as well as touring up and down the east coast of Australia.

Come and celebrate the release of their latest EP ‘Electro Bazaar’.
From the wonky, circus like intro of the title track to the mesmerising sound of the Greek “tsoura” on Monsieur Ouzo, the dubbed out sounds of Hatter’s Hideout and the final assault of Glitterworm, this EP showcases the high energy, dance vibes that the group is renowned for, as well as the ingenuity of the band members and their mastery of the instruments.

Group members Ross Harrington – sax and keys, Rob Campbell – trumpet, Julian Curwin – guitar, Tom Wade – bass, Mick Stuart – drums

+ Special Guests COOKING WITH CAUSTIC

Molecular Soup is the brand new album from Blue Mountains’ Cooking with Caustic.
An expansive musical trip, inspired by 90s Boom Bap Hip Hop, Dub, Breaks, jazz icons and sci-fi monster movies, the album follows on from their debut long-player From Mercury to Pluto.

Cooking with Caustic features beats, keys and percussion by Caustic Yoda; turntablism by multi NSW DMC-champ DJ Cost; electric and double bass by Jarv Benaud; and trombone and trumpet by Marc Brown. The extended CwC family includes saxophonists Stephen Noble, Eugene Baker and Adrian Symes, and trombonist Tim Coggins.

Molecular Soup opens with the first single This Digital World. The track is an instrumental epic of heavy dub grooves and breaks, fusing sweeping horn-lines with adroit turntablism. This Digital World is inspired by our changeable society, and the way humans have adapted to a new digital world. It represents the juxtapositions in modern life like the dominance of digitized music platforms counterbalanced by the simultaneous rise of old-school physicality like vinyl. This also reflects the music created by CwC, which is built from modern technologies such as samplers, drum machines and turntables, but is organic at its core, and enriched by classic instruments like horns, bass, drums and percussion. The second track, Thoughts Manifest is a smoky jazz-inspired boom bap head-nodder, rolling along under triumphant strutting brass. The theme here is of collective minds working together. The third track, Murders in Wax, sees DJ Cost murdering the turntables over funky, science lab-themed breaks. With this album CwC have delivered some upbeat tunes with drastic tempo changes, really letting the instrumentation and musicianship come to the fore. The next tune, Blindside is a beautiful, chilled out downbeat. Think warm sunny mornings, god-rays coming through the trees, crickets chirping. The fifth track, The Mountain, is a quirky sub and bass-heavy boom bap inspired by the band’s home-town clifftops. Molecular Soup concludes with another epic, Fifty Foot Mantis, brimming with nasty breaks and dynamic changes. Here, one of CwCs favourite themes gets a revisit, B monster movies. Giant mantis for world destruction.

Check out this latest release from CwC, out through Scratches Records. Available on 12” vinyl and digital.

BANK NIGHTS – DAVE WELLS TRIO (Hunter Velley) at The Old City Bank, Katoomba, Blue Mountains

Fusion Boutique & The Carrington Hotel Present
‘BANK NIGHTS’ showcase sessions with
DAVE WELLS TRIO (Hunter Valley)
Live at The Old City Bank
FREE LIVE MUSIC

Saturday 15th April 2023
Show Starts 8pm

Venue: THE OLD CITY BANK BAR
15 Katoomba St, Katoomba NSW 2780, Blue Mountains.

Known for presenting unique and talented acts to the Blue Mountains over the last 13 years, Fusion Boutique is collaborating with the Old City Bank to bring the upper mountains even more quality live music at this casual and relaxed, iconic English style pub.
The OCB was built In 1912 as Katoomba’s first bank building, converted to the Carrington Saloon Bar in the 1930’s and in 1992 the bar was reopened after a change of ownership and a major renovation of the entire property. Since reopening, The Old City Bank Brasserie has won many awards for offering consistently good quality, innovative Pub food. In 2010 it was inducted into the Australian Hotels Hall of Fame.
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

Those that have witnessed a Dave Wells performance are privy to the beguiling power of this most rare of musicians. Few songwriters conjure the emotive force of this songwriter, whose command of both voice and guitar captivates to the point of transcendency. On his seven-track released mid-2021, Wells captures the arresting simplicity of his voice and guitar. In the midst of a global pandemic, the Hunter-based songwriter collaborated with world-renowned producer and engineer Nick DiDia (Bruce Springsteen, Rage Against the Machine, Powderfinger), the mutual aim to depart from the robust full-band bells-and-whistles delivery of Wells’ acclaimed debut solo record and strip the songs down to their elemental components.
In February 2021, Wells embarked on his first post-COVID headline tour, taking this mostly unheard set of songs on the road for a series of solo and full-band shows. The first taste of the new material will be single ‘Hey Mate’, a searing tribute to a dear friend, and a song that will perhaps apply to someone in the lives of all that hear it. With a now broader and more stunning songbook, Wells is sure to deliver mesmerising and life-affirming concerts for those lucky enough to attend. Just don’t forget to bring a mate.

“Dave Wells has mastered the honest and beautiful. His songs soar, and his performances soothe” – KIM CHURCHILL
“He is a rare talent, a composer of thoughtful and stirring melodic folk-rock tunes, with a voice to match” – BEN SALTER

An aurally and visually stunning event in the beautiful Palais Royale Grand Ballroom
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

Join us for a Spanish inspired evening where musician and composer Byron Mark and an ensemble of musicians perform Byron’s latest album ‘ODYSSEY’ which is scored for piano, string quartet, tabla, cajon and percussion. It explores Flamenco and Indian rhythms, along with Classical and Jazz harmonies, and so much more!

Byron Mark is a professional percussionist, pianist and composer, who has established himself as an in-demand funk, flamenco, jazz, and pop performer both in Australia and internationally. Beginning with study in classical piano from a young age, Byron continued on to learn drums, percussion and saxophone, and has pursued specialist training on cajon in Spain and djembe in West Africa. “I love sounds and I love rhythm. Combining these, I love to create music. From a young age, I would tickle the ivories or tap out beats on anything I could find, and years later, nothing much has changed – in fact I probably do those things a whole lot more now! What has changed though is my musical awareness and knowledge, which continues to grow everyday on the lifelong journey of music.” – Byron Mark

After many tours and performances with flamenco ensembles around Australia, Byron has developed a strong passion for flamenco rhythms. He is using this knowledge to craft unique compositions inspired by flamenco palos, yet coloured with Latin and Jazz rhythms/harmonies, whilst staying true to his classical piano roots. With this, the ‘Byron Mark Septet’ was formed – and is a powerful live ensemble, with members from all around the world.

‘ODYSSEY’ explores the sonic possibilities when combining keys with a traditional string quartet, percussion, and flamenco dance.
Byron will be performing on keyboard and cajon as part of the septet, along with a stellar ensemble including a string quartet, and cajon and tabla players.

Guest flamenco dancer Lauren Majarres will perform on an elevated dance floor stage in featured pieces throughout the concert.
It is mesmerising to watch the connection between the dancer’s footwork and the rhythms and melodies from the ensemble.

Byron’s debut album ‘AMALGAMATION’ in 2016 earned him top 5 in Australia for instrumental composition at the Australian Independent Music Awards. His current projects include percussionist and pianist for various flamenco ensembles in Sydney, including Paco Lara, ‘Arrebato Ensemble’ and Flamenkisimo. Byron also plays keyboards in the Frank Zappa show ‘Petulant Frenzy’, and keyboard/percussion in rhythm and movement ensemble ‘Jamestown Collective’. He is also well known for his unique ‘percussion station’ performance setup when playing in pop duo/trio formats – playing keyboards and percussion simultaneously.

“The performers exuberance was infectious” – ClassikON
“Byron’s piano tinkles, trills and rollicks along; mellifluous, even while exploring jazz & flamenco motifs.” – Syke off Stage

BANK NIGHTS – CORMAC GRANT DUO & GEORGIE WINCHESTER (Newcastle / Gresford) at The Old City Bank, Katoomba, Blue Mountains

Fusion Boutique & The Carrington Hotel Present
‘BANK NIGHTS’ showcase sessions with
CORMAC GRANT DUO (Newcastle)
& GEORGIE WINCHESTER (Gresford)
Live at The Old City Bank
FREE LIVE MUSIC

Saturday 31st March 2023
Show Starts 8pm

Venue: THE OLD CITY BANK BAR
15 Katoomba St, Katoomba NSW 2780, Blue Mountains.

Known for presenting unique and talented acts to the Blue Mountains over the last 13 years, Fusion Boutique is collaborating with the Old City Bank to bring the upper mountains even more quality live music at this casual and relaxed, iconic English style pub.
The OCB was built In 1912 as Katoomba’s first bank building, converted to the Carrington Saloon Bar in the 1930’s and in 1992 the bar was reopened after a change of ownership and a major renovation of the entire property. Since reopening, The Old City Bank Brasserie has won many awards for offering consistently good quality, innovative Pub food. In 2010 it was inducted into the Australian Hotels Hall of Fame.

With his debut EP, 2021’s You Caught Me Smiling, Cormac glided onto the scene with a silky body of work on youth, love and soul. A subtly confident vignette of Grant’s funk sensibilities. But contrary to the silky ease of his music, Cormac Grant isn’t one for complacency. Throughout a year of non stop gigging and honing his production skills, Cormac started searching for a way to build upon his already well established sound. This became his latest Project; Into The Mystic, which lies somewhere between a hazy road trip and a kaleidoscopic free fall. Amidst a lush canopy of psychedelia driven funk and soul, Cormac assembles subtly captivating riffs, verdant harmonies and luxurious rhythms to create a vivid mosaic of getting older, and learning to remove yourself from the picture. It’s a mature, delicately curated collection which captures the light of Cormac’s past work and shines it through a new, beautifully fractured lens.
Say hello to Cormac Grant’s newest release, ‘spacebetween’, out now on all platforms. For the past year, the Newcastle, NSW based singer-songwriter buried himself in Jazz, 90s Hip-Hop and Psychedelic Soul only to emerge with an amalgamation of his signature lyricism and the essence of the woozy rhythms and grooves he dived into. The downtempo, beat focused ‘spacebetween’ plays like a late night drive – moody, melancholic and chilled. ‘spacebetween’ is the single from Cormac’s upcoming sophomore EP ‘Into The Mystic’

From Gresford NSW, singer/songwriter Georgie Winchester will celebrate the release of her second EP ‘Follow The Sound’ on a 2023 East Coast autumn tour. With her well cherished folk-rock flavoured live show juggling stomp box, harp, guitar and vocals, 2022 saw Georgie support the likes of Kim Churchill, Steph Strings, Andy Golledge, Wil Wagner, Adam Newling and Michael Dunstan. In one year, Georgie’s Spotify has gathered a growing 36,000 streams with one track signed to Ninetone Records.

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.

Depth of heart and sweetness of soul are two things that flow freely through the music of the beloved Australian folk singer, Sarah Humphreys. From delicate folk music to personal reveries, vibrant collaborations and rousing alt-country songs, Sarah has the ability to infuse it all with her innate sensitivity and an artisanal touch in the craft of song-writing.

Her fourth solo record, STRANGE BEAUTY is another tour de force of emotional and honest songwriting built on melody, melancholy and that sweet and untethered voice.

Sarah Humphreys has toured with and worked alongside artists including Katie Noonan, Kasey Chambers, Sara Storer, Fanny Lumsden, Liz Frencham, Loren Kate, Melody Pool, Kim Richey (USA), Charlie Parr (USA), Blind Boys Of Alabama (USA), Harry Hookey, James Reyne, Mark Seymour (Hunters & Collectors), Kevin Bennett, Glenn Hannah, Felicity Urquart, William Crighton and many more.
Sarah is an award winning session harmony singer, singing on ARIA award winning records, working as a singer for ABC Kids on Giggle & Hoot, ABC Kids education music and the annual Sing Australia Songbook and accompanying CD.

Her songs have been featured in Australian tv and film, including Charlie & Boots, Home & Away, Neighbours, Packed To The Rafters and more.

She is a beloved artist in Australia and features regularly on Australian radio including Triple J, high rotation on ABC Country, ABC National, Double J, RRR and is supported by countless community radio stations across the country.

“Sarah makes singing seem so effortless, graceful and easy that she leaves us feeling only the pure emotion of the words, of the song. She inspires other singers to higher heights. She sounds to me like the warm embrace of a wise, benevolent, beloved sister. She is the Karen Carpenter of our age, but with added spunk and grit.” – Matt Tonks

“From the first time I heard Sarah Humphreys’ beautiful voice I became her biggest fan. She writes songs from the heart that are real and captivating – just like the person she is.” – Kasey Chambers

Sarah’s dear friend, Lauren Gero (Merrick) will also be joining her for the night and singing backing vocals for some songs of the set. She has the most gorgeous voice that not a lot of people have had the pleasure of hearing yet.

” …enchanting, warm, loving, hilarious and broken.”

Tessa Devine is a singer songwriter that sings from her soul, weaving stories of heartbreak and hope.
Tessa uses intimate, engaging lyrics and finely crafted musical skills to draw in her audience, utilising guitar, keys, harmonica, electronic drum kit, percussion, loop station and effects with powerful vocals and an incredible range.

After years of incessant touring, living from her van in Australia and abroad, Tessa is touring around Aus and is both headlining her own shows and supporting many amazing artists such as Tones and I (AUS), John Butler (AUS), Smash Mouth (USA), Viki and Linda (AUS), Diesel (AUS), Wallis Bird (IRE), Daniel Champagne (AUS), Ash Grunwald (AUS) .

“She has such a voice – her range from deep, love-drenched lows to summery, thrilling highs and every bit in between was so captivating, at one stage I think I forgot there were others present and briefly let myself fall in love.” – Riot Act Music Review.

“Tessa’s set was immediately mesmerising and unexpected. Looped guitar knitted with sublime soprano harmonies, Tessa’s range is impressive, and the intricacy of her songs magical. It is rare to hear such a perfectly balanced soprano with such guitar skills, and we were lucky enough to take in this flawless performance. Keep an eye on this one – she’s something else!” – Newtown Art Blog Spot

Corn Nut Creek are a powerhouse female Alt-Country/Americana duo, hailing from America and Australia. Their original music has been awarded as a category finalist and juror’s top five selection in the 2020 Blues & Roots Radio International Song Contest. The band features the artful banjo work of Tanya Bradley, paired with the deft fiddle and soulful vocals of Danielle Vita, 1st place winner of 2020 Deer Creek Fiddlers Convention (USA) vocalist award. The duo’s original songs tell raw stories of womanhood which are transporting, honest and effortless. Their story is unique; they met in Hong Kong and performed as the Dulcet Tone Collective, then moved back to their respective countries and began writing music together remotely. After four years collaborating in different countries, they reunited—this time in Australia. They have been featured on ABC Country’s ‘Saturday Night Country’, Bluegrass Country Radio’s ‘Foggy Hollow’, WDVX Tennessee’s ‘Sweetgrass’ and Blues & Roots Radio, among many others. They are planning to release their first full album in December 2022.

Kimberley Wheeler has the uncanny knack of being able to find the right note and the right turn of phrase in the creation and performing of her music. From a classical beginning, this award-winning songwriter came to acoustic roots music along a winding trail through grunge metal, bluegrass and Dan Hicks & The Hot Licks. With a voice described as Celtic Chocolate, she is often compared to singers such as Linda Thompson, Linda Ronstadt and Gillian Welch. Her luscious vocals and gritty songs underpin the band’s acoustic folk pedigree. Kimberley’s late discovery of Tim O’Brien’s, Red On Blonde (a take on Bob Dylan), opened an explosive portal to the folk universe that has directed her ever since. Variously, she has been a member of all-star bluegrass outfit, Uncle Bill, played with Dan Hicks and now has her own band, Roadside Holiday. In 2017 she instigated and curated the all Aussie, Women in String Bands, CD, has been President of Australian Bluegrass & Old Time Association and presently sits on the Musicians Australia Leadership Committee. She is a current finalist in Tamworth Songwriters Association Awards.

+ Special Guest Blue Mountains local: Luca Zumwalt

Luca Zumwalt has been quietly shaping her musical identity since she first picked up an instrument & began writing songs at the age of 8.
Drawing on an astoundingly broad range of musical influences, Luca’s work reflects her introspective nature and keen observations of the world around her and the people in it. She leans towards the melancholic, the absurd, and the abstract.

The singer songwriter, based in her home town of Katoomba, feels blessed to be surrounded by so many like-minded artists and musicians. The trio’s songs have a strong direction toward country/folk, however you will still hear undertones of blues that is very common to Linda’s style – and more importantly, a strong intention to get a message across through thought provoking lyrics.

BONNIEDOON are an Australian indie rock n soul band who evolved from the community and creativity of the beautiful Blue Mountains on Darug and Gundungurra Country. BONNIEDOON satisfy their audience with powerhouse vocals, soulfully solid guitar rhythms and smooth bass notes all backed up by tastefully delivered drumbeats. Their music tells the stories of life, love, and loss and their connection with people is key to their performance. The band has released two studio EPs and is currently working on their first studio album. They have received much attention and acclaim after taking first place in a string of talent-filled band competitions and as a result have formed a strong audience base that follows their regular shows.
www.facebook.com/bonniedoonband

• 7:30-9:00pm Antelope (2nd Floor)
Antelope’s music sits somewhere between melodic folk and pop with the occasional hint of jazz and blues. The band’s songs are lovingly crafted with thoughtful, poetic lyrics brought to life by the telling vocal partnership of Anne Crestani and Ian Neilson.

Migret is an indie-electronica band from Sydney, Australia, that formed in 2019. The band is made up of Argentinan-born couple Betsy and Fran.
They released their first studio album in 2019 entitled “Un monton de casas” that was released independently by the band (currently sold out).
After a successful tour of their home country and a few single releases, the band is now building their home on wheels with the intentions to travel around the island.
Intimate compositions and a delicate voice that does not elude emotionality. All wrapped in an intimate atmosphere with guitar delays, ambient synths and minimalist sequences.

“The result would be “Un montón de casas”, an EP of subtle compositions. With a delicate voice that does not elude emotionality, they sing about airports, boats that go nowhere and old notebooks that burn. All wrapped in an intimate atmosphere with guitar delays, synthesizers and minimalist programming.” – diario contexto
“Migret generates ethereal atmospheres, quite close to those sketched by post-rock bands like Explosions In The Sky, but it does it in a much more emotional tune and with the protagonism of a female voice that tells stories of misunderstandings and proposes a charming and accurate ambient pop.” – indie hoy

Sydney’s ‘chainsaw folk’ The Crooked Fiddle Band are back to launch their fourth album, ‘The Free Wild Wind and the Songs of Birds’.
The follow-up to 2019’s ARIA-nominated ‘Another Subtle Atom Bomb’ takes in a more cinematic sound, touching on the band’s folk roots, and weaving a quiet beauty alongside the band’s signature energy. Rallying around the visceral violin playing of Jess Randall, The Crooked Fiddle Band bring their dynamic show, honed on festival stages the world over, to The Baroque Room for this album launch party.

“This band really is a national treasure and testament to the infinite talent that keeps manifesting in our backyard… they have reinvented folk music as it is known.” – Vanessa Lahey, Australian Stage

“It is rare to hear genuinely original music these days, but when you listen to The Crooked Fiddle Band, your mouth will drop open.” – Bruce Elder, SMH

“Absolutely jam-packed with mind-blowing, face-melting, jaw-dropping, head-spinning moments” – Jazmin O’sullivan, themusic

“Their concept, fusing traditional styles and instruments with a modern, eclectic and experimental approach is ambitious, yet their dedication and commitment have been rewarded with longevity and international reach that has inspired many other musicians, myself among them.” – Steve Albini

FUSION BOUTIQUE presents CHARLIE MGEE (FORMIDABLE VEGETABLE) w/ AMELIE ECOLOGY in Concert at Junction142 Back Hall, Katoomba, Blue Mountains

Fusion Boutique Presents
CHARLIE MGEE “FORMIDABLE VEGETABLE” (WA)
+ Special Guest AMELIE ECOLOGY
Live in Concert at Junction142
*All ages / family friendly event

SATURDAY 17th December 2022
Doors Open 2pm | Show Start 3pm

Venue: JUNCTION142 (Back Hall)
142 Katoomba St, Katoomba, Blue Mountains NSW 2780

Charlie Mgee is a songwriter, ukulele-player, permaculturist and founder of the world-renowned ecological funk/swing band, Formidable Vegetable.

Growing up in a tin shed with a veggie garden, rainwater tank and one 100W solar panel for power in the south-west of Western Australia, Charlie lived the low-impact lifestyle from a young age, using a dunny that didn’t flush and hanging out with his chickens for entertainment, which made him realise early on that you don’t need a lot in life to be happy.

Later on, Charlie went off to study permaculture and soon after, formed Formidable Vegetable – a band based entirely around principles of sustainable living and being good to the planet, with the hope of inspiring people everywhere to grow regenerative gardens/lives/communities and generally make the world a better place.

His music has since made it into the lofty halls of the United Nations (who praised Formidable Vegetable for writing about the ‘important issues of our time’), onto the stages at Glastonbury Festival alongside such acts as Ed Sheeran, Katy Perry and The Rolling Stones and has inspired the creation of many a backyard and community garden.

BRADLEY CHRISTMAS

Since cutting his teeth in the 90’s with prog rockers Arkenstone, Brad’s musical journey has taken him in some weird and wonderful directions. He’s been a hired toured gun for Steve Kilby (the Church), Jeff Duff and Peter Fenton (Crow) and spent many years living and playing music in the U.K. and Japan, where he wrote and performed music for TV with the likes of Orlando Bloom and Marty Friedman (Megadeth).
With his latest project Copperline, Brad has indulged his life-long passion for classic narrative song writing, Americana and twang. Since releasing their debut record Rusty Fords and Weatherboards, the band has become a festival favourite with appearances at Tamworth, the Blue Mountains Music Festival and Country Rocks among many others.

FUSION BOUTIQUE presents MICK THOMAS’ ROVING COMMISSION w/ FULL POWER HAPPY HOUR in Concert at Baroque Room, Katoomba, Blue Mountains

Fusion Boutique Presents
MICK THOMAS’ ROVING COMMISSION
‘Back in the Day’ Tour 2022
+ Special Guests FULL POWER HAPPY HOUR
Live in Concert at the Baroque Room, Carrington Hotel

SATURDAY 3rd December 2022
Doors Open 7pm | Show Start 8pm

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

Raconteur, troubadour, balladeer and poet, Mick Thomas is best known as the song master of pub-rock icons Weddings Parties Anything.
His band The Roving Commission features Squeezebox Wally on Piano Accordion and a rotating schedule of talented performers to keep the party alive with Mick’s unique mix of folk, roots and country.

Mick’s ever-evolving talents as a writer and performer defines a career as intriguing as it is enduring. His knockabout image partly explains his close relationship with his audience. They see him as one of them. A loyal mob who have followed him from the Weddo’s through his solo career, Mick’s fans relate to his wistful, sentimental and nostalgic lyrics. Themes such as Australian history (‘Dancing Man’, ‘Gallipoli Rosemary’); fleeting or lost love (‘For a Short Time’, ‘Disrepair’); the bittersweet realities of life’s merry-go-round (‘Away, Away’, ‘Ticket in Tatts’); alienation (‘The Lonely Goth’); and football (‘Tom Wills’,‘Monday’s Experts’); are wrapped in a positive, triumph over adversity message. The characters in Mick’s songs are everyday battlers, as are he and his fans.

Mick Thomas’ Roving Commission are signed to Brisbane-based indie Coolin’ By Sound, with a new album in the works and a new EP ‘Back In The Day’ coming in November, featuring new and old originals and unexpected covers of Cold Chisel, The Saints, Neil Young and Johnny Thunders.

While the group toils away on their next full length album which is going to be called ‘Where Only Memory Can Find You’ – which won’t be out until 2023 – they’ve decided to christen the new relationship with a 7 track “maxi single” called ‘Back in the Day’.

Unarguably the greatest Australian seven-track maxi single since Jo Jo Zep & The Falcons 1978 classic ‘So Young’, ‘Back In The Day’ will feature a mix of new and old originals and some great covers.

Mick and the Commission will be touring nationally November and December with a current line-up featuring old WPA pal Squeezebox Wally and alt-country songbird Brooke Taylor.

+ Special Guests FULL POWER HAPPY HOUR

Meanjin alt-country/indie-folk five-piece.
They’ve had a busy 2022 so far, carving a path across south-east Queensland venues with taking their latest single ‘Siblings’ on tour as well as supporting Mick Thomas & His Roving Commission.

While on the surface the genesis of Full Power Happy Hour seems to trace directly back to the fertile Brisbane punk scene – where for years many of its members shared both bands and stages – it’s heart dates back further, to singer-songwriter Alex Campbell’s early infatuation with the female voices of the ‘60s folk scene. Having stockpiled a growing collection of heartfelt songs which didn’t suit the punk aesthetic of her earlier bands, she pulled together some like-minded friends from both her past bands and immediate circle and together they set out to mould the Full Power Happy Hour aesthetic. The resultant unique melange mixes the intimacy and fragility of folk icons like Joni Mitchell and Joan Baez with the ramshackle bonhomie of The Pogues, tempered by a more modern indie-rock sensibility akin to The Clean. Having built a strong hometown following with their heartfelt, high-energy live shows rife with impassioned lyrics, joyful instrumentation and heart-stirring harmonies.

This will be Meanjin alt-country/indie-folk five-piece Full Power Happy Hour’s own ‘Bit of Brightness’ album launch tour that has just been released through Coolin’ By Sound too (along with MTRC).

A story teller, songwriter, mother, musician and youth music mentor – Black’s music is pure and honest, rich with imagery and delivered with a voice of milk and honey. “I am so excited to be getting back on stage and sharing my best songs yet with you all!!”

“Everything about Melissa Black’s five-song EP The Eden Project shouts, ‘Serious artist!’ Melissa is a strong female voice, which is something today’s music scene just doesn’t have enough of right now. She hearkens back to the singer/songwriters of yesteryear.” – Skopemag

Mick Harvey and J.P. Shilo will present their joint show which was last delivered on an extensive tour of Europe in late 2019. Plans to take the show around Australia were knocked on the head by the pandemic and now, more than 3 years later, they are back to present a joint show of J.P. Shilo’s ‘Invisible You’ with Mick Harvey presenting predominantly new songs from 2 albums which are in production. One of these albums is a duets project featuring Mexican singer Amanda Acevedo, who will be joining Harvey and Shilo for a large chunk of the former’s set, augmented by a string quartet and small band.

Mick Harvey is best known as a founding member of The Boys Next Door, The Birthday Party and Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds as well as being a long- time collaborator to both Nick Cave & PJ Harvey.

He has released more than 10 solo albums under his own name including the four volume series of Serge Gainsbourg translated recordings, as well as a selection of soundtracks for film and television. He has produced a number of acclaimed albums by other artists and consequently been the recipient of several Australian industry awards including AFI Best Original Score for ‘Suburban Mayhem’ in 2006 and in 2011 took out British Producer of the Year for his (co)production on PJ Harvey’s ‘Let England Shake’.

J.P. Shilo was in the Blackeyed Susans, Rowland Howard’s band & Hungry Ghosts.

This will be a special night of masterful music not to be missed and tickets are limited for this one show only!

“3 talented female artists performing their individual songs together with
strong harmonies, beautiful instrumental arrangements and fun banter”

Melbourne Songwriters Collective presents 3 songwriters in the round: small but powerful Chilean-Australian artist Pia Nesvara, swirly bedroom producer Chev Person, and introspective and playful artist, STAV.
Their live showcases bring out each songwriter’s unique story and are full of surprises. Spontaneously joining in on each other’s songs with harmonies, their performances look like improvised instrumental melodies and subtle percussive grooves intertwined with intimate stories, of joy, sadness and life experiences with honest sharing of their song-writing processes.

As culturally diverse, female-identifying musicians, the Collective are aware of the importance to push and elevate their music and share their stories. MSC is community oriented and has an ethos of sharing musical expression, and sharing stories and cultures interactively with audiences.

The Collectives live set can be seen as a mix of folk/singer-songwriter and soul, combining guitars, keyboard and 3-part vocal harmony – written both individually and collaboratively.
Their debut performance via the Folk Alliance (Folk Unlocked) in Feb 2021 saw the group representing Melbourne songwriters on an International online stage, sharing each other’s songs, song-writing insights and intimate stories of culture and experience. They have since set in stone the vision of this community – as one built from their individual artistry and love for song-writing.

As well as being ready to dive head first into recording their Debut Album, The Collective are fresh off the back of 2 highly commended debut festival shows at The National Folk Festival Canberra and are scheduled to play Dorrigo Folk and Bluegrass Festival in October 2022.

+ 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.

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.

Restless, creative, prolific and willing to grow up in public, Richard Lawson has never shied away from exploring the outer reaches in his musical quest.
From the farthest strains of banjo driven rustic folk to the cutting edge of Cubase driven electronic synth pop his overriding love of melody, rhythm and harmony has crowned his output of 6 LPs and 6 EPs and soundtrack work in the times since the demise of the ‘Lime Spiders’.

Now there is a new LP of ‘Music at Night; Selected Ambient Works 1994-2014’ being released November 2022 including 6 re-workings and 6 unreleased songs of which the first single ‘Firefly’ is set for a September 1 release. The album will also be available as a CD at shows and on Bandcamp as well as the usual streaming platforms .

Richard is the triple ARIA nominated former drummer for Aust Punk rock legends The Lime Spiders and is a multi-instrumentalist, composer and teacher of over 300 students since leaving the band and has explored all musical possibilities from 70’s Art Rock, 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 under way 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.

‘Music at Night; Selected Ambient Works’ will be available November 2022 and the first single ‘Firefly’ is available September 1 on Spotify/YouTube/Apple music.

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.

“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.

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.

Judas Tree – Released 17th September, 2021
Second Hand – Released 16th September, 2019
* Golden Guitar Finalist ‘Vocal Collaboration of the Year’ 2020
Queen of Boomtown – Released 1st September, 2017

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.

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.

SOLD OUT – FUSION BOUTIQUE presents MARK WILKINSON ‘Spirit & Soul’ Australian Tour 2022 in Concert at Baroque Room, Katoomba, Blue Mountains

Rayne Management, Harbour Agency & Fusion Boutique Present
MARK WILKINSON
‘Spirit & Soul’ Australian Tour 2022
+ Special Guest MARK CROTTI
Live in Concert at the Baroque Room, Carrington Hotel

SATURDAY 25th June 2022
Doors Open 7pm | Show Start 7:30pm

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

Mark Wilkinson returns to the live stage this winter with “Spirit & Soul“, his first nation-wide headline tour since 2019. Despite the obvious challenges posed by the pandemic, the last two years have been productive ones for the Sydney based singer-songwriter. Less time on the road has allowed Wilkinson to focus on writing, with a new record slated for release in mid 2022. It will be the first offering of new music from Wilkinson after signing a record deal with Canadian based label Nettwerk Music in late 2021.

“I’m really excited to be partnering with Nettwerk Music and to be back touring after a very stop-start couple of years. It’s the perfect opportunity to reconnect with my Australian supporters and give them a sneak peek at the new music I’ve been working on.”

With record sales in excess of 70,000 copies and millions of streams on Spotify, Wilkinson has built a global following off the strength of his evocative songwriting and powerful live performances, often drawing comparisons to artists like David Gray and Damian Rice.

“There’s a glow of warmth around him and a richness to his supreme voice, sending shivers down spines as he pulls you into the soul of him” – Hazel Buckley, The Music

The “Spirit & Soul” fourteen date run kicks off in late May with shows across 5 states. Tickets are on sale now.

With our last Baroque Room show with Mark being SOLD OUT we advise booking quickly to avoid disappointment.

Known for presenting unique and talented acts to the Blue Mountains over the last 12 years, Fusion Boutique is really looking forward to teaming up with Zoe’s (Formerly Blackheath Bar & Bistro – reopening 1st April) to bring the upper mountains even more quality live music and touring artists in an open entry format for you to enjoy.

Singer-songwriters Patrick McDermott and Rhys North share a rare and enigmatic musical talent. Emerging from Brisbane’s Fortitude Valley in 2016, the duo McDermott & North have already drawn praise from the Australian and international music industry alike.
Staying true to their busking roots, the pair approach every performance with the same precision and meticulous attention to sound. It is with this humility that they have elevated themselves as live performers and captivated the likes of Australia’s very own Ben Lee and Alex Lloyd whom they shared the stage with in 2021.

Their most recent singles ‘Ally’, ‘Georgia’ & ‘All Things Come And Go’ have received generous support from both Triple J & National NZ Radio as well as BBC Radio London. But most importantly, the indie-rock folk outfit have amassed an impressive and hardcore following everywhere they park their van.

Despite gearing up to relocate to Melbourne in 2022, their two sold out shows at Brisbane’s The Junk Bar in December are testament to the fact that the guys are only just getting started.

With live performance at their heart, the two have navigated their way across the Australian continent and brought their heartfelt, unassuming method of storytelling in song to a wide reaching, loyal fanbase in their time together.

Alt-country outfit Caitlin Harnett and The Pony Boys have had a big year after the release of their debut album “Late Night Essentials”. The record was named Album of the Week on FBi Radio and 2SER, they played a sold-out launch tour and were named Best Live Act in NSW at the National Live Music Awards.

Now they’re back for more. Caitlin Harnett and The Pony Boys will be hitting the road again in 2022 playing 19 dates including Festival appearances and a run of shows up and down the East Coast. The tour will see them road-testing new songs for their upcoming album and playing crowd favourites from “Late Night Essentials”.

Get ready to dance, laugh, cry, hear the unfiltered Caitlin stories first-hand and experience the joy in the room at one of their gigs. Giddy Up!

Her voice is like Mazzy Star’s Hope Sandoval was jerked out of a long sleep.” – The Guardian

“Lush, Americana-style folk tunes, jangling guitar and a whole lot of honesty.”Sydney Morning Herald

It’s quintessential Caitlin Harnett, vocals that soar with heart and hold the same sense of intimacy as the greats, all set against a backdrop of modern Americana.”- NME

“In particular circles around Sydney the name Caitlin Harnett is spoken in revered tongues, like the whispered password to a music scene Illuminati. Learn the handshake, feel the twang and order a round.” – Dave Ruby Howe, Triple J

Their newest release will warm your heart while gently slicing it in two – our favourite type of ditty.” – RUSSH Magazine

Lead singer Caitlin Harnett fills the void that is a distinct lack of alt-country in Sydney’s music scene. Whether you’re in the big smoke or by the water, this track is bound to become an instant addition to your summer playlist.”FBi Radio

“The Sydney-sider’s single “Make You Feel Blue’ is knock-your-socks-off material. Has there been a sad song thats made us happier in recent times? Probably not.” – Meadow Fest.

“One of the finest slices of country soul you’ll hear this year. A gorgeous mood with that voice that hangs heavy in the air and dips into all the right forlorn corners.” – Post To Wire

“Montgomery Church make a rare kind of hill country magic: spinning gossamer tapestries with timeless acoustic sounds, quicksilver vocal harmonies, and the kind of unassuming storytelling that burrows deep into the subconscious.” – Gareth Hipwell (Country Update Magazine)

Cielle Montgomery and James Church are, Montgomery Church – a blend of acoustic folk, americana and bluegrass influences, grown and distilled in the Snowy Mountain ranges of country New South Wales.
With their organic union of dobro and guitar, harmony vocals and thoughtful songwriting, this captivating duo, accompanied by their band, are enthralling in their dynamic intimacy and offer up some of the sweetest acoustic sounds being heard around Australia’s folk country scene right now.
They have graced the stages of many iconic music festivals including Nannup Music Festival, Queenscliff Music Festival, Woodford Folk Festival, National Folk Festival & Americanafest in Nashville.

Montgomery Church’s debut album In the Shadow of the Mountain, earned them 2 nominations in the prestigious 2019 Golden Guitar Awards. The duo recently teamed up with 7 x GRAMMY nominated Producer & Engineer, Erick Jaskowiak (Crooked Still, I’m With Her, Darrell Scott) to record their highly anticipated follow-up, Where The Quiet Can Hide, and are thrilled to be celebrating it’s release.

“Montgomery Church are like the Australian version of Gillian Welch and Dave Rawlings but if Gillian was the daughter of Allison Krauss… sitting on a porch, with tea not whiskey… I’m a tad obsessed… The most graceful duo literally gracing stages right now.” – Fanny Lumsden (Golden Guitar & ARIA Award Winner)

This beautiful evening of live acoustic music will be complimented by the addition of very special guests, Charlie & Jensen.

Charlie & Jensen is a musical conversation between acoustic artists Hunter Beasley and Luke Wright. They journey through genres, shifting from vocally charged original songs, to virtuosic instrumental tunes, taking a stripped-back, raw approach to music and performance.

Having toured Australia many times, including with Italian and World Music sensation Unavantaluna, Charlie & Jensen have also pleased crowds at some of the country’s favourite Folk & Bluegrass Festivals, including The National Folk Festival, Cobargo, Dorrigo and Tamworth Country Music Festival.

Their musical chemistry is evident in their self-titled album, a collection of recordings, unedited and undeniable which saw them at the Golden Guitar awards with two award nominations.

Saije is an award-winning, contemporary folk duo whose soulful harmonies, dynamic guitar-lines and percussive breakdowns breathe life into heartfelt stories. Their songwriting is crafted from the depths; stirring melodies bound together with graceful lyricism. Through multitasking techniques, the pair create a full-bodied sound enriched by flavours from their travels around the globe.
Growing up among the rivers and valleys of a small creative town on the East Coast of Australia, Saije, Shanteya and Jo, developed a close affinity with the natural world. From these early inspirations and their many barefoot adventures, messages of conscious living and connection to self, the Earth and each other have become a common thread that is etched into their songwriting.

After being awarded Folk Alliance Australia’s ‘Young Artist of the Year 2019-2020’ at the National Folk Festival, armed with harmony, guitars and foot drums Saije toured their latest release Kindred (2019) throughout Australia and Canada in early-2020. They continue to uplift both national and international audiences through their unifying performances and a warmth that fills small halls and overflows from large festival stages.

CANCELLED – THE CROOKED FIDDLE BAND Live in Concert at Baroque Room, Katoomba, Blue Mountains, SAT 30th April 2022

There is some good news and not so good news: Jess is pregnant (yay for
another new little person) however TCFB are being extra careful, mostly
because of sound dB levels in smaller spaces, and also partly so that
she has the capacity to record their new album now that it has a
definite time limit.

Thank you for your purchase and support of this (and other events) and especially to those that patiently held on through the reschedule due to lockdown too! We are really disappointed that we couldn’t enjoy this fabulous act with you again (especially when dancing has just been confirmed!) and we are looking forward to a time further down the line when this might be possible.
For now if you are after a dancing fix then we have the very fun ‘Soul Movers’ on 2nd  April and the slightly naughty ‘Caitlin Harnett & The Pony Boys’ on 28th May.
All ticket holders have been emailed on 24/02/22 with the option to refund or transfer their tickets.

ARIA nominees THE CROOKED FIDDLE BAND are a mesmerising and fiery acoustic 4-piece that deliver high-energy Chainsaw Future-Folk. Post-Apocalyptic World Music. Celtic Energy. Swamp-Stomping Hoe down. Dance-Inciting Mayhem. Hardcore Gypsy Passion!

The Crooked Fiddle Band formed in 2006 through their mutual love of the energy and intensity of various traditional world music. Whilst writing and arranging, they discovered that this energy was shared by the other music they love: there seems to be a common thread between the frenetic accompaniment of gypsy, klezmer and punk rock; between the twisting rhythms of math-metal and Balkan folk; between the clear tonalities of Scandinavian folk, Celtic folk, and cinematic post rock.
All these influences went into the mix, but what came out was The Crooked Fiddle Band. The sound they love is dark and often driving, but also writhing and ecstatic. They have jumped around with whirling crowds at festivals, bars and dirty warehouse parties throughout Europe and Australia and also played their more cinematic sounds in the Opera Theatre of the Sydney Opera House.
This music they have sometimes called ‘chainsaw folk’ – even though they are pro-conservation – but others have called it “14th century Romanian metal”, “thrash folk”, “whirlwind gypsy” and even “what Sepultura would sound like if they provided the soundtrack to a hyperactive version of O Brother Where Art Thou.” So whilst the search continues for a name for their genre, they are mainly concerned with making music with melody, energy and intensity.

Driven by the beautiful and furious fiddling of Jess Randall (also on Lennart Lovdin Nyckelharpa), and underpinned by a rhythm section featuring Gordon Wallace (Gilet guitar, a Wheeler Custom Lutherie guizouki and a Fylde mandolin and cittern), Mark Stevens (double bass, Appalachian dulcimer, charango) and Joe Gould (drum kit, hand percussion, garbage bin, vocals) the Crooked Fiddle Band sound blasts, rocks and grooves to the point of dementia, compelling listeners into a joyous frenzy.

Their latest offering ‘Another Subtle Atom Bomb’ takes the band’s blistering violin-led live show and creates soundtracks to their feelings around climate change. From angsty and furious folk tunes to fantastical imagined worlds full of ecstatic hope, this is The Crooked Fiddle Band’s most personal album yet.

Their music has been described by Brian Eno as “…completely surprising: the music is original and quixotic. I can’t say I’ve ever heard anything else like it!”

“This band really is a national treasure and testament to the infinite talent that keeps manifesting in our backyard… this group have re-invented folk music as it is known… The Crooked Fiddle Band charmed the audience into submission.” – Vanessa Lahey, Australian Stage

“When The Crooked Fiddle Band took to the stage, it was as though someone had put 10,000 volts through the dance floor.” – BEAT magazine.

“AN IRRESISTIBLE FORCE OF NATURE.” – Tony Hillier, The Australian

“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.

Corn Nut Creek are a powerhouse female Alt-Country/Americana duo, hailing from America and Australia. Their original music has been awarded as a category finalist and juror’s top five selection in the 2020 Blues & Roots Radio International Song Contest. The band features the artful banjo work of Tanya Bradley, paired with the deft fiddle and soulful vocals of Danielle Vita, 1st place winner of 2020 Deer Creek Fiddlers Convention (USA) vocalist award. The duo’s original songs tell raw stories of womanhood which are transporting, honest and effortless. Their story is unique; they met in Hong Kong and performed as the Dulcet Tone Collective, then moved back to their respective countries and began writing music together remotely. After four years collaborating in different countries, they reunited—this time in Australia. They have been featured on ABC Country’s ‘Saturday Night Country’, Bluegrass Country Radio’s ‘Foggy Hollow’, WDVX Tennessee’s ‘Sweetgrass’ and Blues & Roots Radio, among many others. They are currently working on their second album, set to be released in August 2021.

KimberleyWheelerIMG_1665web300

Kimberley Wheeler has the uncanny knack of being able to find the right note and the right turn of phrase in the creation and performing of her music. From a classical beginning, this award-winning songwriter came to acoustic roots music along a winding trail through grunge metal, bluegrass and Dan Hicks & The Hot Licks. With a voice described as Celtic Chocolate, she is often compared to singers such as Linda Thompson, Linda Ronstadt and Gillian Welch. Her luscious vocals and gritty songs underpin the band’s acoustic folk pedigree. Kimberley’s late discovery of Tim O’Brien’s, Red On Blonde (a take on Bob Dylan), opened an explosive portal to the folk universe that has directed her ever since. Variously, she has been a member of all-star bluegrass outfit, Uncle Bill, played with Dan Hicks and now has her own band, Roadside Holiday. In 2017 she instigated and curated the all Aussie, Women in String Bands, CD, has been President of Australian Bluegrass & Old Time Association and presently sits on the Musicians Australia Leadership Committee. She is a current finalist in Tamworth Songwriters Association Awards.

LIVE MUSIC

DeepseaLights221001_DSL_PromoImg_01  DeepseaLights_06
Deepsea Lights (synths, laptop, midi controller)

Captivating vocals, catchy melodies, live looping, spoken word; Deepsea Lights put a lot of focus on pulling a crowd in, and creating and holding a space. In 2019 the duo released their first full length album “The Space Between”. Lying somewhere between folk and trip-hop, their uncommon sound can move from rolling bass lines and ethereal vocal melodies, to beats composed entirely of household objects being struck with other household objects, to aggressive hip-hop rants, to soft rainy-day folk songs.

Night Diver - Emily Williams 4
Night Diver & Emily Williams (cello & laptop)

Night Diver is the solo music project of musician and cello player Emily Williams. Her main instrument remains at the centre, augmented by sounds of sampled glass, steel & kinetic toys pitched & percussive. The music is emotionally charged with revolving arpeggios which drift around a motif of atmospheric, low-end drone-like ambience, disquieting moody melodies & airy experimental minimalism.

Charlie McMahon & Peter Strong w/ special guest Jason Thornton
Dingo Gringo / Grumblemorph (electronic: micro synths & sax)
Dingo Gringo is a didgeridoo and electro crossbreed of sound by Charlie McMahon and Peter Strong. Charlie fronted the seminal Gondwanaland Band that prefigured the world music and Indigenous cultural revival by a decade, while Peter cut his name in the dance-music free-party rave scenes of the ’90s. The name Dingo Gringo evokes the global-electro Cumbia and up-vibe feel of much of their music. Charlie McMahon (deservedly referred to as Bone Man) is an ARIA award winner, and Australian didgeridoo legend, who is best known for his bone shaking didgeridoo riffs such as the “wobble” and “ride”. Playing didgeridoo for 59 years makes Charlie a most senior didgeridoo player, and he is referred to by Didgeridoo Virtuoso, Mark Atkins, as ‘tjilpi’ which is the desert word for elder. It is well known that no other didgeridoo player has done as much as Charlie in the way of inventing didgeridoo concepts to make the didgeridoo effective in many genres of music. Maningrida elders Djelkera Wood and Djana recognise Charlie as the leading creator of didgeridoo concepts and have complemented Charlie for inventing ‘complex and interesting ways of playing didjeridu’. Charlie is also the creator of the Didjeribone™, which is a pitch variable “slide” didgeridoo.

Grumblemorph is the solo live electronic music wing of Peter Strong. The live Grumblemorph project was active in the ’90s existing alongside other jamming, social and activist collectives like Non Bossy Posse, Vibe Tribe, Ohms Not Bombs, Organarchy Sound System and Reclaim The Streets. In 2022, Peter brings Gumblemorph back as live analogue grooves peppered with digitally captured sampling – more about improv playing of micro synths in a way to traverse unexpected sonic territories in the realm of post-rave groove and squelch.

Internationally acclaimed saxophonist Jason Thornton has been thrilling audiences worldwide for decades. He has toured and played with the likes of Prince’s after party band, George Coleman, James Taylor, Gloria Estefan, Cher and Frank Sinatra… and locally with Master’s Apprentices, Matt Finish, Angry Anderson and Swanee…to name but a few. Described as a true chameleon, Jason is equally at home playing rock and blues as he is playing jazz, funk, RnB or reggae. Although very definitely a fine example of a modern musician, his playing shows a true understanding and reverence to the historical greats.

GREAT SOUTHERN NIGHTS & FUSION BOUTIQUE present MARTINEZ AKUSTICA + MARTIN FOOTE in Concert at Baroque Room, Katoomba, Blue Mountains

Great Southern Nights in association with Fusion Boutique Present
MARTINEZ AKUSTICA / VICTOR MARTINEZ PARADA TRIO

+ Special Guest MARTIN FOOTE
Live in Concert at the Baroque Room, Carrington Hotel

SATURDAY 9th April 2022
Doors Open 3:30pm | Show Start 4:30pm

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

Chilean-born, Victor Martinez Parada, is recognised as one of the world’s finest classical Latin-American avant-garde solo guitarists.

With his sons, Andro and Dauno Martinez, he led the family guitar trio, Martinez Akustica, who performed professionally from 1997 until 2012 throughout Australia and internationally. All three members played six string acoustic and electric guitar, bass and also used their instruments as percussion and vocal beat box. One minute they played in unison, the next in harmony, then across and against each other. It was calm, then chaotic, beautiful, then forceful. It was difficult to fully describe them until you’d heard them. Their interplay and understanding that flowed through them was inspiring, endearing and infectious. They truly captivated their audiences as they stretched each other’s ability with a flourish here and an astonishing variation there. These incredible players were on the must-see list for anyone who played a guitar, anyone who aspired to playing guitar and anyone who enjoyed listening to guitar.

Each of the members now have individual careers but are thrilled to re-unite especially for WOMADelaide and after a period of 11 years we are particularly excited to be able to present them in the Blue Mountains again.

“Victor’s ear is such that he’s able to peel away the thump & swish of epic early eighties Britpop production to find the heart of a song not even its writers seemed to recognise. He honours the composition, rather than his own virtuosity. This humility, an abject absence of vanity, is a hallmark of his musicianship. Indeed, it’s the defining characteristic. It’s emblematic of Parada’s truly rare & precious gift for arrangement. And it’s a talent that comes to the fore again and again throughout the evening.
‘You Are the Sunshine of My Life’ is one of the greatest songs ever written. And, if it’s possible, Victor’s Fantasy on it only but enhances its status in the popular canon. In his hands, it becomes around a ten-minute opus. It’s as if he’s rolling out a red carpet for the tune, which progressively & unmistakably insinuates itself. The rhythmic flavour of flamenco informs the arrangement and imbues a passionate urgency. It’s a virile, avant-garde take on a Wonderful song. The Chilean Hendrix does it again.’ – Syke on Stage


“Martinez Akustica had an interesting approach to jazz and pop, highly energetic jazz laced with flamenco flair and modern improvisation by three great guitarists.” – George Benson

“Their live show left me inspired each night of the tour. Definitely some of the most talented musicians I have ever seen.” – Michael Franti – Spearhead

“The music benefits from their intensity and passion…. so does the listener!” – Jeff Hamilton (Diana Krall)

“This is probably the greatest acoustic guitar band in the country – and yet another must-see at Bluesfest.” – Byron Bay Blues Festival

“The Gypsy Kings are happy. It has been incredible playing with the musicians Martinez Akustica. Our concert has been a great success in Sydney. We hope to play together next time in another place on Earth.” – The Gypsy Kings

“The band has an endearing, inspiring and infectious energy and it shows in their performance” – The Sunday Telegraph

MartinFooteFB2300

Martin Foote is a gifted guitarist from the Blue Mountains of NSW, who plays with a passion and flair that turns heads whenever he takes the stage. Growing up in a musical family, Martin began playing guitar at the age of ten, taught by his father, Nigel Foote, who gave him a strong foundation in folk-blues fingerpicking styles. Through meeting guitarists Joe Robinson and Michael Fix, Martin discovered the work of the legendary Australian guitarist, Tommy Emmanuel. Over the next few years, Martin attended Tommy’s guitar workshop and two residential guitar camps, at the end of which he performed Tommy’s arrangement of Classical Gas with the Master himself. Martin has performed for Blue Mountains Music Festival, Sydney Blues & Roots Festival, Sydney Royal Botanical Gardens, Tamworth Country Music Festival, Katoomba Winter Magic Festival, Horizon Festival, Hunters Hill Club, Katoomba RSL, Blue Mountains Folk, plus Australian Citizenship ceremonies for Blue Mountains City Council. After winning the Busking Competition at the 2015 Winter Magic Festival, Martin composed several instrumental pieces and used the prize (a day’s recording at Songcave Studios) to record his seven-track EP, ‘Moving On’ which was released at the 2018 Blue Mountains Music Festival. Martin has taught guitar for Waratah School of Music (Blue Mountains Music Academy) and at Blue Mountains Guitar School since 2015. This has however moved online since the pandemic began. Martin is currently studying a bachelor of music at the Australian Institute of Music.

Music runs through Declan Kelly’s blood. It’s been a part of him since  the very beginning. With an Irish father and a Maori mother, herself a talented musician, he was encouraged to learn the drums and guitar at a young age.
He’s aligned himself with some of the greatest Australian musicians we’ve seen, plying his trade with The Beefs (with Alex Lloyd), and The Bondi Cigars, before releasing his debut album ‘Tales From The Neighbourhood’ in 2005 with support from the late great Andy Glitre.

Late 2019 saw Declan Kelly release his fourth studio album ‘Views With A Room’, which saw Declan searching for answers while tackling issues of masculinity and despondency. Declan Kelly has a way of captivating fans with his roots and his rhythm. ‘Views with a Room’ – featuring the beautifully stripped back singles ‘Catch Your Ego’ and ‘Take Me in Tonight’ – was a deep and reflective project that engaged with themes too rarely discussed by male artists. It is easy to see why Declan has gained the respect of fans, media and esteemed colleagues such as Bernard Fanning, Katie Noonan, Bobby Alu and Kasey Chambers through his authenticity and spectacular musicianship.

During the 2020/21 pandemic, Declan put aside touring plans, and spent the lockdown period back in the studio. The first single from his upcoming album, ‘Headlock’ encompasses the insecurities of having to navigate through these unprecedented times. Mixed by Grammy-nominated producer Justin Stanley (Prince, Paul McCartney, Eric Clapton, Nikka Costa), the cold feeling of isolation is overcome by warm layers of folk rock, Marvin Gaye soul and Declan’s comforting vocals.

Nic Danta is a Katoomba based singer-songwriter and one-time performer with the Spooky Men’s Choral. Nic blends Dylan-style folk music with pop sensibilities influenced by Billy Bragg and the Cure.
Performing with Nic will be two Blue Mountains legends, Matt Tonks on guitar, piano and vocals and Paddy Connor on Irish Pipes. As a group, they create moody and emotional music with lyrics that tell intimate stories of people and place.
Nic will be launching his album, ‘Buried at Sea’ and you can view Black Dog, the first video from the album below.
This gig will also be a chance to farewell Neill Duncan, the heart and soul of music in the mountains who sadly passed away in December 2021. Neill produced and played on Nic’s album and should have been sharing the stage.

Crow Mountain are an Australian old-time country and folk group, performing original, traditionally flavoured tunes of unnerving honesty and effortless beauty.
Drawing on their Blue Mountains roots, Megan Legg (mandolin) and Ben Thomas (banjo and guitar), blend old-time, bluegrass instrumentation with honey-dipped harmonies, painting aural portraits of human frailty and grit, sorrow and strength, love and redemption. Their original songs are rich in the sound and story-telling of traditional country music – of growing up in isolation; jumping freight trains to get where you need to be; of getting out of town and returning beaten, with the past at your heels.
They released their debut EP, ‘Shallow Water’ in 2018, and their new EP,
‘The Higher We Go’ is available to purchase and stream now.

MURRAY COOK’S SOUL MOVERS
+ Special Guest LINDA MIZZI
Live in Concert at the Baroque Room, Carrington Hotel

Saturday 2nd April 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 –


. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

Led by long-legged Lizzie Mack, a charismatic front woman with a penchant for groovy 1960’s vintage, and featuring the equally visually spectacular legend on lead guitar, much-loved ex-Red Wiggle, Murray Cook, The Soul Movers musical tour-de-force across a hip and funky musical spectrum of 1960s and 70s Soul, Pop, and rock and roll, making them one of the most exciting live and festival acts on the touring circuit today.

Backed by a band oozing with musical talent which features a star-studded cast of musicians who count themselves among the best in Australia. At times described as a “supergroup”, Lizzie Mack and Murray Cook are joined by bassists Matt Crawford and Tony Mitchell (Sherbet), Marko Simec on keys (Waiting For Guinness) and legendary session drummer Luke Herbert (Paul Kelly, Kasey Chambers, Don Walker etc). Together they deliver a unified and electrifying live performance that impresses audiences and critics alike wherever they go.

The Soul Movers have recorded in both the US and Australia to create four critically acclaimed albums – including their current for ABC Music ‘Evolution’ where the band retained their soulful roots while also branching out and bringing in more retro-rock, soul-funk and even disco elements. The record captures The Soul Movers incredible energy, broad influences and diverse talent. ‘Evolution’ was supported by four singles and video clips, including ‘Circles’, which saw the original Wiggles lineup reunited to lift the spirits of a nation during lockdown with a retro workout video a la Richard Simmons. The album and singles have been met with widespread critical acclaim and their YouTube and socials lit up with a response of love and admiration for the band’s visual panache and exuberant flair.
They proceeded to sell out live shows across the nation, leaving audiences enthralled wherever they went and eager to join The Soul Movers family. Now they had a cohesive offering and territory that audiences responded to with equal measures of recognition, passion, and enthusiastic interaction.

“Taking in a Soul Movers live show is an essential experience for anyone seriously interested in that broad umbrella of “live music.” – Bernie Howitt, RAM Magazine

“Murray Cook and Lizzie Mack have forged an alliance so powerful, so fearsomely funky, that The Soul Movers have become one of the most exciting live bands in the land…” – Glenn A. Baker – Music Historian, AM

“The Soul Movers are aptly named for their body-driven music that will have any seated crown writhing in their seats. Fronted by Lizzie Mack and Murray Cook (aka the original red Wiggle), the group combine electrifying guitar riffs with 60s soul-groove and a sprinkling of pop to form a night out that audiences will never forget. TSM’s high energy bursts through to deliver a new album which is a tasty collection of surprise and delight.” – Tait McGregor, The AU Review

“This is music that is all about the soul – its passion, emotional nuance, heartbreak, celebration, hurt and love. ‘Bona Fide’ is the sound of a talented, experienced bunch of soul-music lovers making a record where the essence of this passion and feeling is coursing through their veins. You can’t really ask for anything more.” Brian Wise, Editor, Rhythms Magazine

LINDA MITZI_0166 copy crop 300

With a love of sunflowers, real people, and the freedom to express herself as a songwriter, Linda Mizzi brings light, honesty and a touch of darkness into her songs. She tells real stories through her music, with strong, lyric based songs; that are upfront, warm, quirky, charming and sometimes even confronting. Linda lets her muse wander where it may, “Of course, music is far more porous than genre-definers would have us believe, and such is the case with her music.” – Michael Smith.

Based in her home town of Katoomba in the Blue Mountains, she is blessed to be surrounded by so many like-minded artists and musicians, and it is on the festival circuit and in front of a listening audience that she truly comes into her own. Linda often performs as ‘The Linda Mizzi Trio’, featuring fellow local musicians Glenn Skarratt on Mandolin and Alex Keller on Bass guitar. The trio have reformed again after a period of four years and are currently working on a new album. With a strong direction towards country/folk, you will still hear undertones of blues that are very common to Linda’s style on previous albums. However, the combination of older songs with newer tracks, written and arranged together as a trio, will feature a more stripped back approach, with the primary focus on Linda’s often thought provoking lyrics. This collaboration is strong, and one to watch.

For a taste of what is to come, you will have the chance to enjoy Linda in solo mode as she opens for The Soul Movers in her home town.

T. WILDS (trio)
‘Ten Songs’ Album Launch
Live in Concert upstairs at Bootlegger Bar

New Rescheduled Date – Friday 1st April 2022
Doors Open 8:30pm | Performance Start 9pm

Venue: BOOTLEGGER BAR 92 Bathurst Rd, Katoomba NSW 2780, Blue Mountains

T Wilds celebrates the release of her new album ‘Ten Songs’. Recorded in the Blue Mountains with her band partner Matt Toohey, ‘Ten Songs’ sees Tania Bowers mark a spectacular return to songwriting and performance, stripping back the electronic production flourishes of her early material as Via Tania and crafting, authentic, left of centre folk music.
The ‘Ten Songs’ which feature on the album revel in delicate, minimal arrangements with a dark, reflective edge. ‘Ten Songs’ includes the singles ‘I Swim’ and ‘Curious Moon’.

Originally growing up in the Melbourne and Sydney (indie) music scene with her band Spdfgh, Tania relocated to Chicago for quite some time where she played her music with members of Tortoise, Wilco, and Giant Sand.
The impact of T. Wilds’ voice is immediate and definitive. Distinctive, delicate yet powerful, and instantly captivating. Her voice provides the perfect vehicle for her ever-expanding catalogue of songs that are wise and curious, daydreamy and evocative. She is influenced by the beauty of her surroundings and the natural world. Landing somewhere between the sophisticated soul of Sade, the wistful yearning of Nico, and the country-tinged soul of Gillian Welch, her music continues to evolve into its own genre of delicate indie-folk.

Come and join us for a special intimate launch of her new album upstairs at Bootlegger Bar. Tania will be performing in trio format with Matt Toohey (Kid Cornered) on guitar and Anna West on cello.

This will be one show only and a limited capacity and we advise booking quickly to avoid disappointment!

GREAT SOUTHERN NIGHTS & FUSION BOUTIQUE PRESENT MITCH GRAINGER + ANDY NELSON Live at the Bootlegger Bar, Katoomba, Blue Mountains

MITCH GRAINGER + ANDY NELSON
Upstairs live at The Bootlegger Bar
FREE LIVE MUSIC

Sunday 27th March 2022
Show Starts 5:30pm

Venue: THE BOOTLEGGER BAR
92 Bathurst Rd, Katoomba NSW 2780, Blue Mountains.

World-renowned blues harmonica player & Australian roots-music troubadour previously of The Beefs, Bondi Cigars & Papa Lips will be performing one solo intimate set.

A master of the blues harp, singer and guitarist Mitch Grainger is a perfect paradox. A white guy from Australia, that infuses the blues genre’s traditional styling’s with a confidence, and depth of spirit, that has him being compared to the likes of Robert Johnson by American music critics.

Since stepping into the light with his 2015 breakout solo acoustic release ‘The Blues’, Mitch Grainger and his high-energy stage show have burst onto the blues & roots scene, like a field holler echoing from the deep dark south through a dusty 50’s tube amplifier.

He’s packed houses in the US, Australia and Scandinavia, performed at prestigious festivals, such as the American Folk Alliance in Kansas City, and earned standing ovations while opening for Tommy Emmanuel across the North East of the USA.

His sound, built on a talented configuration of vocals, harmonica and guitar, has come of age. It’s been likened to a fine single malt whiskey by Steve Creedy of the Australian Newspaper, and the comparison is apt, as Mitch Grainger has quietly been maturing as an artist for over 25 years, while performing and recording along side some of Australia and the world’s greatest artists, such as Malcolm Young (AC/DC) and Harry Vanda to name but two.

Now with a growing global fan base that includes over 100,000 subscribers on YouTube, Mitch Grainger is in the studio recording an album with the working title of ‘Plug It In’ that promises to take his raw emotional form of Blues & Roots music up the metaphorical Mississippi river, out of the acoustic domain, and into the voltaic.

*“Grainger plays pure acoustic blues with the heart and soul of Robert Johnson. His light-fingered guitar and mournful harp perfectly play up Grainger’s modern lyrics and traditional-sounding melodies; close your eyes, and you can feel the heat and smell the dust of Mississippi” Suzanne Cadgène, Elmore Magazine.

“I’ve watched him search within himself for his true identity as an artist…have a listen to his music…Mitch has come of age” Harry Vanda.

In 2017 Andy Nelson arrived onto the live music scene with a rustic Americana/Folk style. His passionate performances are delightfully infectious and he is rapidly becoming recognised for his soulful and earnest performances which are described as thoughtful, poignant, lyrical folky goodness.

After supporting the Small Halls Festival Tour he began playing at festivals and venues all over the continent such at the National Folk Festival, The End Festival, Inland Sea of Sounds, Tamworth Country Music Festival, Gympie Music Muster, Majors Creek (Festival Favorite as reviewed by Timber & Steel), Cygnet Folk Festival, Nannup Music Festival, Jamberoo and was a semi-finalist in the 2018 BluesFest busking completion.

In 2019, with producer Syd Green, Andy recorded his debut album ‘Man on the Mountain’ in a small farmhouse in Kangaroo Valley. Listeners quickly connected with the themes within Andy’s lyrics, revolving around self discovery and gratitude, and the desire to follow dreams. Kate Ceberano commented on Andy’s performance at the 2021 Inland Sea of Sound as “Singing about the humanness of it all.”

Canadian sensation Gordie Tentrees is returning to AU for his 4th tour in 7 years and we are delighted to be presenting him in an intimate format upstairs at The Bootlegger Bar

International touring award nominated Canadian Gordie Tentrees has arrived. This authentic road poet travels North America, Europe, UK/Ireland, Australia and New Zealand with 8 records behind him never repeating himself on stage. From headlining Celtic Connections (Glasgow) to the National Folk Festival (Canberra) his ability to hold an audience, weave melody and juggle the dark with the light is infectious.
Armed with harmonica, bottleneck resonator, guitar and foot percussion, brotherly harmonies and masterful storytelling, this one man band has performed 2500 concerts in 11 countries. Influenced by touring with friends Fred Eaglesmith, Mary Gauthier, James Cotton, Ray Wylie Hubbard, Steve Poltz & Kelly Joe Phelps. His 8th record (Mean Old World) was released Sept 2021. Tentrees is just getting started!

“Majestic song-writing, incredible insight, genuine authenticity” – Americana UK
“In the rough cut vein of Kelly Joe Phelps or Fred Eaglesmith, Tentrees is gifted” – THE GLOBE & MAIL
“Tentrees’ delivery is so relaxed and unpretentious it’s impossible to not get drawn into his world, sounding like a young John Prine”  – NO DEPRESSION
“Very superior songs on a terrific album, heartfelt and hysterical” – R2 MAG (5 Stars)
“Sounds like an album Woody Guthrie or Bob Dylan might have done if they were starting out today” – Irish Post (4/5 Stars)

EmilyWilliamsSNightDiver300

Emily Adele Williams is a cello player and improviser performing on amplified/effected cello using various effect pedals, cello percussion, and sampled sounds to multi layer her music which can be described as ambient, drone-like with atmospheric soundscapes. Emily has collaborated on a number of musical projects over her career and and has a solo cello project ‘Night Diver‘ and duo ‘Au Revoir Hands‘ with composer and buchla musician Anthony Lyons.

Night Diver is Emily’s solo music project. Her main instrument remains at the centre, augmented by sounds of sampled glass, steel & kinetic toys pitched & percussive.
The multiple layers of cello and shimmering electronics are slowly interwoven evoking anticipation, longing & stillness.
The music is emotionally charged with revolving arpeggios which drift around a motif of atmospheric, low end drone-like ambience, disquieting moody melodies & airy experimental minimalism.

“Emily Adele Williams is an Australian cello player and improviser. The music blends broad musical styles from modern classical, post minimalist, electronic and experimental avant pop mixing influences from contemporary music creating a wide spectrum of sounds from her instrument from intimate simplicity to atmospheric soundscapes and making full use of technology using her laptop and effected amplified Cello. Her compositions reveal a passion and a deep understanding of classical music rules and most importantly a willingness to subvert them to create lush and breathtaking musical landscapes” – The Age

“Cellist Emily Williams, an innovative and genre-defying solo instrumentalist in her own right.” – Beat Magazine

Bodymass300

Body Mass is a collaborative project created and curated by musician, guitar geek dad Ben Hassell. 
After playing in bands in Sydney (Traps, Phonograph, Marching Room) throughout the noughties, adulting took over and Ben moved to Brisbane with his family. Body Mass has been a closely kept side project since those days. Considering the relative ease with which music can now be shared Ben determined it was high time to just kick out the tunes, some of which are 10 years old. Body Mass EP shares some of Ben’s experiences from those times until now, including unemployment & worthlessness, employment & boredom, resentment and anger, adulthood, ageing and death. This is processing the devolution of a dream to a hobby. It’s pretty chipper – enjoy.

Coral Snakes Legends Dave Graney & Clare Moore Unveil New Collab Album “Everything Was Funny”

Prolific alt artists Dave Graney and Clare Moore — duo with guitars/vibes/keys/melodica.
However they choose to play, they bring their story and their songbook which stretches to over 40 albums.
They make shows like few others.

During the initial Melbourne pandemic lockdown these partners in both life and music started doing online shows every week, sometimes twice a week, and revisited songs from all their albums as well as work-shopping new material. They kept their performing nerve and playing and writing skills sharp. Then the lockdown eased and they played some shows around Australia. Then the lockdown came back again. Luckily their lockdown nerves held too.
They had been planning a rock album with their band, the mistLY,  but times didn’t allow it so they made their own album in their studio. The duo’s album is a classic Compact Disc packed with too many songs for vinyl. Somewhat of a cathartic release, it’s an album for the freaks called EVERYTHING WAS FUNNY. Graney, known for his biting tongue and blade-sharp wit, has let fly with even more trademark wryness and cheek.

They’ll be playing some of it, mixed in with old classics from their songbook, along with some choice interpretations of other peoples songs.

When people ask you in the future, “what was it like in those years-2020-2021?” You can begin by stroking your chin and saying …”weeelll… everything was funny”…

Dave Graney was awarded ‘Best Male Vocalist’ at the ARIA Music Awards of 1996 for his work on The Soft ‘n’ Sexy Sound, while “Feelin’ Kinda Sporty” won ‘Best Video’ in 1997 and he has received seven other ARIA Award nominations.

“Tiny Tim meets the gritty story telling of Lou Reed. Songs of avenging zombies, ukulele bumblebees, possessed pianos and a certain air of quiet, small town romance, against an impossibly beautiful backdrop of chook-shed instrumentation”. – Michael Dwyer, art and music writer

Hailing from the Blue Mountains NSW, King Curly is the invention of local singer/songwriter Steve Appel – a long time enigma of original Australian music.
After many absences from the stage, building alternative-design mud houses, King Curly re-emerges to showcase new songs.
Appel is a true creative. His songs and his buildings are beautiful and relevant to the times.
King Curly has toured throughout the world – by invitation with acts as diverse as K.D Lang, Paul Kelly and The Cat Empire.

The band also features Steve Grieve on guitars and Johnny Graffham on pedal steel.

Come and join us for the Blue Mountains launch of ‘Songs’ in this beautiful setting. Recorded largely live as a trio, ‘Songs’ is a new collection released song by song with accompanying home-made lockdown video clips.

COVID capacity limits are in place and we advise booking quickly to avoid disappointment!
