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 (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.

Fusion Boutique Presents
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)

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.

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.

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

Close to Forever is a collective of some of Australia’s most acclaimed and talented musicians.
Featuring:
Dale Caldwell

Danny Heifetz

Their sound has been described as a searing and haunting listening experience, a beautiful mix of rich vocal harmony with luscious arrangements.
The band’s musical style is not easily categorised featuring elements of artpop, jazz, rock, indie and alt-folk.
Featuring original works and cherry-picked material from master song crafters such as PJ Harvey, Nina Simone, Elvis Costello and Don McGlashan, they’ve created their own distinctive sound centred around close vocal harmony, hypnotic rhythms, and ethereal sonic landscapes.
Since their formation they have been regular sell out favourites at Venue 505, Camelot Lounge, Django Bar and the Great Club in Sydney. 

Close to Forever are thrilled to be bringing this astonishing troupe of musicians to perform in intimate format in Katoomba, sharing the sonic beauty that is their latest album “Hearts and Desire” and much more.

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” (WA)
+ Special Guest AMELIE ECOLOGY

Venue: JUNCTION142 (Back Hall)

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.

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).

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.

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.

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.

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

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

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.

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.

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.

Fusion Boutique Presents
THE CROOKED FIDDLE BAND
Live in Concert at the Baroque Room, Carrington Hotel

New Rescheduled Date – Saturday 30th April 2022
Doors Open 8pm | Performance Start 9pm

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


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

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

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.

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

– 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.

Fusion Boutique Presents
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!

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.

DANIEL CHAMPAGNE Live in Concert at Baroque Room, Katoomba, Blue Mountains, SAT 11th December 2021

Fusion Boutique Presents
DANIEL CHAMPAGNE
Live in Concert at the Baroque Room, Carrington Hotel

Saturday 11th December 2021
Doors Open 4pm | Show Start 5pm

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

The young Australian born and Nashville based virtuoso recently described as ‘the finest guitar player of his generation’ brings his world tour back home!

“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

The story goes that Daniel Champagne 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 left school, turned professional and hit the road without looking back.
The following years have seen him release four studio albums, tour relentlessly around the globe with upwards of 300 shows per year, 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.

Daniel is now regarded as a leading light in acoustic music, with a firm reputation for dropping jaws, making crowds buzz and breaking guitars wherever he goes.

Do not miss this show. They have been selling out all over the world!

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

Please note that there have been some changes to the health orders, as announced by the government on Tuesday 2nd November.
We will be complying with the NSW Health Orders and the dates of when further restrictions are eased have changed.

We are very pleased that from 8th Nov we will be back to being able to operate at 100 per cent fixed seated capacity.
Seating for these concerts are still allocated.
People who are fully vaccinated can now stand while consuming alcohol.
Singing and dancing is also permitted indoors from 8th Nov.

The current settings for masks, which apply to everyone, will remain in place until the State reaches the 95 per cent double vaccination target, or 15th December, whichever happens first. This was moved from the previous 1st Dec. As this concert is now likely to be before this new target date is reached, all guests will be required to wear a face mask while entering and attending the indoor area of this venue (unless eating or drinking or able to provide proof of a medical exemption). You need to wear your face mask again when the reason for taking it off has ended. *This may change if the 95% double vaccination rate is achieved prior to 15th Dec.

Those who are not fully vaccinated must still abide by pre-roadmap restrictions until the State reaches the 95 per cent double vaccination target, or 15 December, whichever happens first.
If you are not fully vaccinated you cannot visit an entertainment facility. Only the fully vaccinated (and those who can provide proof of medical exemptions) will be able to attend the venue and must show their evidence of full vaccination before entry will be granted.
Check in with the SeviceNSW app to the Baroque Room (which is a different area and venue to the Carrington Hotel and Old City Bank Hotel) will still be required on entry. Please try to check out promptly on departure too.

While we are progressing towards some sort of “normal” sooner than expected in many regards it is unfortunate that the government has changed some of the rules to a later date. As of last week we were at 93.65% for one dose and if the 95% double vaccination target is reached before 15th December, restrictions will ease to allow anyone to attend, and masks will no longer be required. We will update ticket holders with any further changes to attendance requirements that affect this show further as they are made.

Please remember as you prepare your return to venues, that the measures above have been put into place by the NSW Government to ensure all of our safety and staff are only doing their job as they try to follow these rules. Let’s all treat each other with respect and enjoy the freedoms we have all been waiting so long for!

KIM CHURCHILL 4th EP Launch Tour 2021 at Baroque Room, Katoomba, Blue Mountains, SUN 5th December 2021

KIM CHURCHILL
‘I Am Forgetting The End Again’ 4th EP Launch Tour
Live in Concert at the Baroque Room, Carrington Hotel

*New Rescheduled Date – Sunday 5th December

Join us for an intimate show with Kim Churchill and his Cellist Joshua Luke Rea
It will be a night of storytelling, some soft moments of reflection and a deeper insight into where Kim’s songs truly come from.

Australian folk, rock, and blues singer, songwriter Kim Churchill picked up his first guitar when he was 4 years old when his father promised him a guitar if he did well in school. He was trained in classical guitar for ten years. He accompanies his guitar with blues harp (harmonica), stomp box, drums, and percussion instruments. He also plays lapsteel and tambourine.

Churchill tours extensively and has become a venue and music festival favourite.

“Opening on this night was the young, barefooted Aussie, Kim Churchill. Churchill made the most of an acoustic guitar, kick drum, pedals and a harmonica. Creating a sound I can only describe as psychedelic whale music, ocean-side blues or countrified Nick Drake. Kim Churchill. Remember that name. He’s going to impress a whole mess of people on this tour” – Vancouver Weekly

After almost four years in the making, Kim is set to release the final EP, ‘Again’, off his 4-part EP collection; ‘I Am Forgetting The End Again’. Whilst the EP was recorded on the coast of Devon in England with a large UK/EU tour planned, the need to stay landlocked to Australia for the time being has led Kim to tour Australia wide and search out brilliant and beautiful places to perform the full body of work.

Hear songs from his travels to record in Berlin, Vancouver Island, Devon and the Blue Mountains and a beautiful night of stories and sonic adventures. On many of these shows Kim and his van will be rolling into town and playing in local parks, camp grounds and the town’s favourite music venues from March until August and travelling Australia wide in search of the perfect backdrop for ‘I Am forgetting The End Again’.

Some of the clips include:
After The Sun (Berlin) – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hi444evDdlo
Look Too (Berlin) – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XmY1pWXMrBY
Caught up in the Landslide (Quebec) – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hrlFB-tyiEU

POSTPONED – Palais Performances: MICKEY & MICHELLE + LITTLE CLOUDS in Concert at the Palais Royale Ballroom, Katoomba, Blue Mountains, SUN 11th July 2021

Sadly this launch of our ‘Palais Performances’ will need to be postponed.
Mickey & Michelle are located in regional VIC and are no longer able to complete the NSW leg of their tour at this time.
We discussed the possibility of proceeding with Little Clouds and a substitute act but with this show booked for 2 days after the current lockdown is scheduled to end, there is a lot of uncertainty of what restrictions will be in place following and if we are to revert to the 1/4m2 requirements then that would make it too much of an unviable situation with all the costs of running the show involved.

Ticket holders have been emailed from with options including transferring tickets to the new rescheduled date, any other Fusion Boutique show or a full refund.
We are hopeful that this will be the only ticketed show impacted and will proceed with the launch of this new listening space series at the Palais the following month with Dave Graney and Clare Moore on Saturday 14th August.

 

Fusion Boutique Presents ‘Palais Performances’
Concerts for Listening Audiences with
MICKEY & MICHELLE
+ LITTLE CLOUDS (Emily-Rose Šárkova & Nick Henderson)
Live in Concert at the Palais Royale Grand Ballroom

Sunday 11th July 2021
Doors Open 4pm | Performance Start 5pm

Venue: PALAIS ROYALE 230 Katoomba St, Katoomba, NSW 2780, Blue Mountains

A marvellous listening experience created by Fusion Boutique in the gorgeous Palais Royale Ballroom.


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

Mickey & Michelle are a harp and fiddle duo from Australia who seamlessly blend contemporary folk and jazz together in a rich, unique style of their own.

Their 2019 debut album ‘A Walking Pace’ perfectly showcases the duo’s intricate sound and unusual combination of styles.

Michelle was born into an incredibly musical family and has been performing professionally from the age of 11. Since then she has gone on to perform with the likes of Paul Kelly, Shane Howard and Fiona Ross. Her compositions on the album are deeply rooted in Celtic music while also balancing her attention to detail and nuanced phrasing from her classical studies.

Mickey on the other hand developed such a passion for jazz and his playful improvisations are ever-present in his original compositions. He also takes great delight in reinterpreting traditional Americana tunes with jazz harmony and Afro-Cuban polyrhythms.

The dynamic duo have returned from their most challenging adventure yet; a 6 month tour on foot of NZ’s 3000km ‘Te Araroa’ trail. Mickey & Michelle are excited to share their experiences and music in their home country.

Little Clouds are a subtly nostalgic, feel good singer songwriter duo from Sydney, Australia. AKA Nick Henderson & Emily-Rose Sarkova, Little Clouds write lofty afternoon inspired hits and introspective midnight bangers, laced with clever lyrics and sweet chords that make you feel real good. And let’s be honest – we are all in it for the feelings. They move unassumingly between their multi-instrumentalist personalities of guitar, bass, piano, keys, synths, accordion and vocals. It is intimate. It is real. Journeys will be had.

If one requires some hard hitting musical facts about these two musicians, you might like to know that they are Conservatorium graduates who have played with award winning and very diverse musicians such as Mike Nock, Australian Brandenburg Orchestra, Elio Franco, Chaika, Arcing Wires, Monsieur Camembert, Duo Ramirez Satorre and Chris Cody Octet.

Victor Martinez Parada is recognised as one of the world’s finest classical Latin-American avant-garde guitarists. Born in Santiago, Chile, he has resided in Australia since 1989. He is an accomplished composer, teacher and performer with an extensive list of music in his repertoire, ranging from classical and South American folk to avant-garde. He has composed pieces for solo guitar, ensembles including duos, trios, quartets, sextets and also for guitar & ensemble and guitar quartet & symphony orchestra. He is well-known for his arrangements and fantasies on pop tunes such as Stevie Wonder’s ‘You Are The Sunshine Of My Life’, Daniel Alomia Roble’s ‘El Condor Pasa’, Laura Branigan’s ‘Self-Control’ and Harold Arlen’s ‘Somewhere Over The Rainbow’. Audiences cherish his performances which reflect a professional music career spanning more than 50 years. A performance by Victor Martinez Parada will not only make you understand how music has shaped him but the way he has shaped music. He is a musician’s musician who plays from the heart.
After nurturing the musical careers of his family for many years with the band, Martinez Akustica, Victor Martinez Parada has returned to his roots and is taking his unique talent back on the road as a solo artist.

“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

Reviews for Martinez Akustica, Victor Martinez Parada’s trio formed with his sons Andro and Dauno Martinez.

“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

IMOGEN CLARK
+ Special Guest MAIZY
Live in Concert at the Baroque Room, Carrington Hotel

Friday 26th March 2021
Doors Open 6:30pm | Support Start 7:30pm
Imogen Clark Start 8:45pm

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

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

Imogen Clark is more road-hardened and wise than most performers twice her age, and with her new six track EP ‘The Making Of Me’, the 25 year old has translated the whole of who she is on record for the first time.

The songs span the arena-ready opening rocker ‘My Own Worst Enemy’, a co-write with Alex Lahey, to defiant ‘Inside Out’, which showcases Imogen’s soaring vocal, and ‘Push Me Down’, a volley at misogynist musicians. Together with the sultry and atmospheric ‘Paper Boat’ and heartrending piano ballad title track, the EP is a departure from everything Imogen has created before. Lead single ‘Found Me’ was written with Clare Bowen and her husband Brandon Robert Young, at the end of a US tour together last July.

Recording in LA meant access to musical legends Benmont Tench (Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers) and Pete Thomas (Elvis Costello and the Attractions), who infused the songs with their musicianship and set a tone early on in the sessions.

It’s a far cry from playing pubs in the Blue Mountains of New South Wales, where Imogen cut her teeth as a young performer, after picking up her father’s guitar at age eight. A relentless work ethic saw her build up a strong live following in rural Australia, gaining her touring slots with artists like Shania Twain, Ian Moss and Willie Watson, who recognised an artist with grit and maturity well beyond her years – an old soul learning to embrace being a young woman.

PRAISE FOR ‘THE MAKING OF ME’ EP:

“4.5/5 stars. This EP will become a landmark.” – Poppy Reid, Rolling Stone

“Imogen Clark may not have tailored her record to this era but her vibrant, bracing songs – kind of like a dip in a cold September sea – might just be one of the things to carry us through it.” – Divya Venkataraman, Sydney Morning Herald

“Every once in an audiophile while, like a bolt out of the blue, we’re gifted with a pop song so sunny, so chiming, so pure and perfectly crafted, that it might have been sculpted by the angels. No melodic faults, no clunky chords, no errant turns of phrase, just ebullient euphonic verse-chorus-bridge constructs that only strengthen with each successive listen.” – Tom Lanham

Maizy

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.

As an extra special treat Michael Simic will be bringing his full band up to the Blue Mountains for this Katoomba show.

Stepping out from behind the Mikelangelo persona, Michael Simic announces a solo tour in November to launch the single Dark Moon, from his forthcoming album.

Well known for his long-term band Mikelangelo and the Black Sea Gentlemen (who celebrate their 20th anniversary this year), Simic’s solo work puts his intimate storytelling and reflective ballads front and centre. Balancing light and shadow, his melodic, guitar driven songs and sonorous voice share terrain inhabited by Leonard Cohen and Nick Cave, mixed with the dreamy and expansive musical landscapes of Mazzy Star, Cowboy Junkies and Calexico.

For Simic, who had his first child with his wife at 49, there was a mixture of emotions, and an incredible flood of creativity. Taking a year off has afforded him downtime to connect with more personal song writing. Dark Moon was penned in a caravan out the back of a converted church where his small family live near Braidwood in country NSW. The song was inspired by starry nights far from the city, and a need to make peace with the past and accept the present.

Sydney’s bluegrass darlings The Morrisons tell Australian stories steeped in the sound of folk and old-time music. With high, lonesome singing, fast picking and original songs inspired by folklore, family and their lives as young Australians, they are a modern-day string band like no other.
Featuring banjo, fiddle, mandolin, guitar, bass, washboard, harmonica, and 4 part harmonies, they deliver a live show full of raw energy and emotion.
The 7-piece band have performed at major festivals around the country and supported the likes of Nathanial Rateliff & The Nightsweats (US), Marlon Williams (NZ), Kitty, Daisy & Lewis (US), and Lake Street Dive (US), received a Golden Guitar nomination and won an Australian Songwriters Award.

“The Morrisons play big band folk, like a mash up of both Inside Llewyn Davies and Oh Brother Where Art Thou’s T-Bone Burnett” – Concrete Playground

“Gathered centre-stage around a single microphone, performing a consummate set of bluegrass music. Solos were aplenty and all band members showed their ability to shine in the spotlight before pulling their instrument back into the cohesive and brisk pluck and strum of their collective sound” – The Music

“An incredible bluegrass/country/folk 7 piece” – AU Review

“The Morrisons prove that Sydney bands can pick with the best of the them” – Timber & Steel

KingCurlyBWweb300

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 features Steve Grieve on guitars and Johnny Graffham on pedal steel.

“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”.

Recent 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

DeepseaLights_03WEB300

Blue Mountains based Deepsea Lights have spent most of their time playing gigs in and around Sydney, taking their time to craft a unique sound and engaging stage presence. Sometimes playing more traditional venues, often playing underground artist run events, their versatile set means they’re at home on most line-ups.

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”. 
Not content living in just one genre, the duo dip their toes (and sometimes plunge their heads) into anything that inspires them. 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. Stitching their inspirations together like a sonic patchwork quilt, they’ll use whatever they can get their hands on in an effort to get things out of their heads and into the world.

LoloLovineOpenStudioWeb300

Lolo Lovina (‘Red Beer’) are an intoxicating, cosmopolitan virtuosic brew infused with Unza, Swing and Balkan Gypsy beats. The only ethnic Romani band in Australia, fronted by Hungarian Romani-Gypsy singer Sarah Bedak.
Lolo Lovina’s music reflects the cosmopolitan identity of an artist, who grew up with three native tongues and cultures. The charming and passionate performance of the charismatic singer makes each of her concerts a unique experience. Featuring Serbian Rroma drummer Nenad RadicMatt Ottignon on Sax, Leonid Beshlei on button accordion and sax & George Nikolopolous on bass.
Lolo Lovina have played at the Opera House, Guca Festival Serbia, in New Caledonia, in Europe and to full houses wherever they go.
Their album Rroma Sapien received a 4 Star review in the London based World Music magazine Song Lines (June 2016) with Rroma Sapien and RromAntics both being featured on ABC Radio National’s program, ‘The Daily Planet’.

(Lolo Lovina)…have created an album that swings from traditional to ground breaking Rroma music, all imbued with a tremendous sense of fun” – Lucky Oceans, The Daily Planet ABC Radio National

‘Excellent new, vibrant album (RromAntics!) from world-touring, Sydney-based Rrom music band…’ – Lucky Oceans, The Daily Planet, ABC Radio National
“You have to listen to these people, this is the future of music” – Brian Eno, Luminous Festival, Sydney Opera House
“With musicians from Ukrainian/Romanian, Hungarian and Brazillian backgrounds, this music is authentic to its roots and played with vigour and precision.” – Bradfield Dumpleton
“Musically and culturally Planet/MGM consider the group to be in the forefront of contemporary world music coming out of Australia. Their live performances are exciting, varied and professional with consummate performance skills from all members.” – Graeme Regan, MGM the Planet Company
“…Traditional Gypsy tunes alternate with Lolo originals here, and the arrangements are solid, tight, classy and brassy…” – 4 STAR review of Rroma Sapien by Seth Jordan in Songlines Magazine, London UK.
“..a most remarkable band fronted by …Sarah Bedak – as exotic a flower as you are ever likely to see behind a microphone. To say the sound is infectious doesn’t quite express it…they have people of all ages (and believe me, I saw it) hurling themselves through the air, across the dance floor, inventing moves on the spot, hugging each other with a passion … I’ve seen bands of all shade play, but I can’t recall seeing anything quite like this! Yes, it is gypsy but there are also dollops of Spanish flamenco, Russian, Greek – indeed the music of anyone who likes to party.” – Glenn A Baker

GaryDaleyJamesGreening300

Highly respected musicians, James Greening, trombone and pocket trumpet & Gary Daley, pianist and accordionist, have joined forces to bring an amalgam of original compositions, classical, jazz and improv.
After decades as sought after sidemen in projects like ‘The Catholics’, as well as leading their own projects, these two renowned musicians have discovered a deep joy in making music together. Both Daley and Greening relish the freedom, intimacy and transparency of the duo which is perhaps one of the most exposed types of performance.
Their musical dialogue is about unmasking, connection and freedom. Audiences respond with great enthusiasm to their performances. 

Greening’s performing and recording credits put him in the company of some Australia’s all-time greatest contemporary musicians. “Greening’s trombone has the delicious plumpness of a ripe mango. The Sad bits and the funny bits become jumbled, and there can be no higher praise.” – John Shand, The Sydney Morning Herald.

Daley’s playing has been described as “exquisite”, by John Shand (SMH), and his composition for large ensemble, Sanctuary, drew the following response… “music such as this can knock the wind out of my diaphragm, by simply reminding me how far the word falls short of the music”, – John Hardaker, Australianjazz.net
