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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

KimberleyWheelerIMG_1665web300

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

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

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

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

Born in the Blue Mountains, Vanessa has played extensively with folk trio Snail, and duo Piccolo Bear. Having recently returned from Vancouver, Canada, she is currently writing and recording her first solo EP, while performing intimate jazz sets both solo, and with her band. Vanessa’s gentle guitar playing and sweet voice weave heartfelt stories of honesty and perspective.

This gig will also be a chance to farewell Neill Duncan, the heart and soul of music in the mountains who sadly passed away in December 2021. Neill produced and played on Nic’s album and should have been sharing the stage.

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

Emily-Rose and the Wild Things is a fierce and fresh world of music led by front woman Emily-Rose Sarkova on vocals, keyboards & synths. Here one finds intricate, relevant lyrics of weight and beauty, underpinned by profound but constantly fresh acoustic and electric worlds. The band is a heavy fusion of musicians spanning jazz, folk, funk, metal, classical, electronic, indie and all the in-betweens. Performing as a trio for the evening joining Emily-Rose will be Nick Henderson on bass, and Luke Chapman on guitar.

The band has a debut album ‘Upon These Open Skins’ set for release in Feb 21 2022, with the already released singles ‘Complete as One’ and ‘Golden Light’ getting some love on the airways including Triple J, FBI radio and Eastside FM. Their third single ‘Nightbirds’ was released on Dec 19 also with a music video.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Hot on the heels of last year’s ‘Airs and Graces’ EP, with its feature track ‘Kingdom Come’, comes Richard Lawson’s next synth pop EP, ‘Glow Baby’. A direct response to the current existential crisis facing world climate, political, health and social issues, it features 3 new songs, 2 with guest vocalist Dione Leigh Wasup.
It was recorded at his own home studio over the summer of 21/22 with some recording and editing also taking place at Richard Cookes ‘Sanctuary Sounds’ studio in Tilba.

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

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

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

Broken Creek Cropped web300

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

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

EmilyWilliamsSNightDiver300

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

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

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

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

Bodymass300

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

Dan+Challis+in+the+Sky+(1+of+11)web300

South-Coast singer/songwriter Dan Challis melds lyrically-driven acoustic folk music, with a story-telling focus. His songs centre on the lived-experience, and befit his troubadour ethos; living out the very life he tells stories about through his music. 

Dan has captivated audiences both here and in North America, where he spent the last 4 years up until 2020. It was there he penned the songs for his most recent body of work, ‘No Lonely Road’ (2020); his sophomore album. The music has been described as “rich, authentic acoustic folk… (that) should make you feel something raw and timeless.” 

Challis speaks of the impetus behind the making of ‘No Lonely Road’; “The album represents a short but significant chapter of my journey as a songwriter. Being in North America for 4 years changed me as a person and I wanted the songs to reflect that. I look back on that time and how I captured those moments in this body of work; and how it all had such a profound impact on my life. I wouldn’t have been able to write this album without those experiences.”

Dan is based full time in Australia now, and follows the classic model of ‘stomping the pavement’ when it comes to getting his music out there; being known for his willingness to tour, especially in regional areas, and bring his love for his craft direct to the people; no matter what the venue, pub, club or local RSL. This year alone he played over 36 shows on a two-month long tour of NSW and south-east QLD, to promote the release of his latest album.

A night of acoustic folk music, by a songwriter who cares deeply about their craft.

A yodellin´, thigh slappin’, lederhosen wettin´ fest of German music from The Beez’ Deta (accordion, vocals) and Rob (guitar, vocals) featuring the Beatific Beats of Julia Day on drums.

You’ll thrill to comic classics from the likes of Rammstein and Kraftwerk; you’ll tear off that dirndl and shake a Teutonic Tailfeather when you catch a glimpse of Nena´s 99 Red Balloons; you’ll swoon to Marlene Dietrich´s Lili Marlene, but wait, that´s not all!

Now those Testy Teutons have their sights set on the rich treasury of Oz Rock. As polka. In German. Wince as Aussie classics are put through the Sauerkraut mincer! Cover your ears as the likes of Barnsey and Farnsy are blitzed into polka oblivion! In The Sauerkrauts own words- “If you´re not a polka fan it’s looking really bad, ´cause this might be the longest evening you have ever had”. The Last Plane Out of Sydney´s almost gone but, regrettably, The Sauerkrauts are not on board.

Deta and Rob always felt that the German Oeuvre was a little under represented in today´s musical landscape, so here they are to make amends with an evening of dance floor-compatible Deutsche Derring-do, featuring Deta´s fabulous “Brunhilde Bass“ accordion. One octave below the conventional accordion bass, this is an Alp-quaking tone of Wagnerian proportions. Melded with Rob´s custom Höfner “Blitzkrieg“ guitar and Julia Day´s Germanic Grooves it´s an irresistible rockin’ polka machine.

Deta and Rob both hail from Berlin; their band The Beez performs regularly throughout Europe and Australia. They´ve appeared on ABC TV´s Spicks and Specks and every folk festival you care to think of.

“it’s just so much fun, that girls got amazing pipes, she sounds like Amy Whinehouse – but with more of a soulful edge as opposed to a jazz hook” NKECHI ANELE – TRIPLE J ROOTS AND ALL

“I really don’t know if we have anyone similar in Australia, I am pretty sure that we don’t. She has similar elements of other artists from overseas, and maybe a touch of Renee Geyer, but basically, she is a one-off. In a close tunnel genre in Australia, Kelly is Queen. She is a no-nonsense, firebrand” – COWGIRL UP BLOG

Dan+Challis+in+the+Sky+(1+of+11)web300

These two Australian singer-songwriters have recently released their new albums and are hitting the road this year to connect with audiences across the country.

Folk singers at heart, their individual stories and songs are expressed in the simplest way possible, through guitar and voice.

Stephen Grady released his album ‘Wonder’ in October 2020, which “Strikes a perfect balance of sparse folk and balladeer-blues, with Nick Drake and Jose Gonzales undertones, ‘Wonder’ is a world class composition” (Kath Devaney, ABC Music Programmer/Producer).

Dan Challis’ album ‘No Lonely Road’, came out in November 2020 and was inspired by a 4-year journey across North America. It has been called “rich, authentic acoustic folk… And should make you feel something raw and timeless” (EarToTheGround Music blog).

The two artists will be touring together, not as a duo, but two friends sharing the road and supporting each other as they both play their individual songs.

A night of acoustic folk music, by two songwriters who care deeply about their craft.

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.

In late 2016 Smith & Jones finished recording their debut album, ‘Dark Gives Way’, with Michael Carpenter at Love Hz in Sydney. This album’s first three singles, ‘Baby Blue’, ‘Small Town Woman’ and ‘Your Achin’ Heart’, all went to number one on the internet’s Australian Country Radio charts and also charted in Tasmania over four weeks.

2018 saw Smith & Jones finish work on their highly anticipated second album, ‘Something Worth Learning’, which they recorded at Love Hz Studios and Linear Recording and will be released in March and toured for the remainder of 2019. Though ‘Something Worth Learning’ is still full of the charm and joy audiences have come to expect from Smith & Jones, their new work delicately balances themes of love and loss, friendship and isolation, emotional desire and freedom, fearlessly exploring the depths of their musical partnership with the listener by their side.

Saije is an award-winning, contemporary folk duo whose soulful harmonies, dynamic guitar-lines and percussive breakdowns breathe life into heartfelt stories. Their songwriting is crafted from the depths; stirring melodies bound together with graceful lyricism. Through multitasking techniques, the pair create a full-bodied sound enriched by flavours from their travels around the globe.
Growing up among the rivers and valleys of a small creative town on the East Coast of Australia, Saije, Shanteya and Jo, developed a close affinity with the natural world. From these early inspirations and their many barefoot adventures, messages of conscious living and connection to self, the Earth and each other have become a common thread that is etched into their songwriting.
After being awarded Folk Alliance Australia’s ‘Young Artist of the Year 2019-2020’ at the National Folk Festival, armed with harmony, guitars and foot drums Saije toured their latest release Kindred (2019) throughout Australia and Canada in early-2020. They continue to uplift both national and international audiences through their unifying performances and a warmth that fills small halls and overflows from large festival stages.

John Kennedy’s 68 Comeback Special will be bringing their Urban and Western sounds to Blackheath Bar & Bistro in open entry format.

An enthusiastic young music journalist once described John Kennedy as a humble genius. John is neither a genius nor particularly humble. The Sydney musician is the writer and performer of many fine songs, some of which have found a place in the hearts of music fans of the golden era of Australian independent music.
John Kennedy started his music career in Brisbane in the ‘80’s with his band JFK and the Cuban Crisis. He moved to Sydney with the band and had early success with heavy JJJ airplay of indie hits like ‘The Texan Thing’ and ‘The Ballad of Jackie O’. The band broke up and John moved on to a strong solo career with his band John Kennedy’s Love Gone Wrong. More indie hits followed with songs like ‘King Street’ and ‘Miracle (in Marrickville)’ helping define what John called his Urban and Western sound.
Despite topping the Australian Independent Music charts with the ‘Always The Bridegroom’ album, commercial crossover proved to be elusive leading to John’s decision to leave Australia. He spent the ‘90’s living and playing music in Berlin, Hong Kong and London before returning to Sydney in 2000. He formed a new band and continues to perform and produce independent releases with his band John Kennedy’s ‘68 Comeback Special.

This time John returns to BB&B in full band mode. Their regular guitarist, ex-Wiggle Murray Cook, won’t be available for this gig so they will be joined by Richard Burgman (The Sunnyboys) on lead guitar. The band also consists of Peter Timmerman on drums and Phil Hall on bass.
Audiences can expect great music and many humorous stories relating to these songs.

In 2017 Andy Nelson arrived onto the live music scene with a rustic Americana/Folk style. His passionate performances are delightfully infectious and rapidly becoming a highlight for audiences around the country.

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

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

If you merged John Butler Trio, Florence + The Machine, and Matt Corby, you’d get newly formed 3-piece TYDE. Brandishing a rich soundscape that ebbs and flows between folk, funk and alternative rock, TYDE is a force to be reckoned with.
The trio is made up of Cole Clark Guitars-endorsed percussive finger-style guitarist Ella Belfanti, her 15-year-old sister and bass prodigy Zoe Belfanti, and West End drummer Josh Garnett.
Flavoured by each of the trio’s unique musical tastes and backgrounds, TYDE will have you both grooving to infectious hooks and reflecting on your life choices with their introspective lyricism. TYDE’s songs have been written and developed across the snowy mountains of Australia and Japan, the sunburnt Aussie East Coast.

“…all the polish of a well established band, yet all the emotion of someone sitting in their bedroom with a pen and paper, searching for catharsis.” – Livewire Music Australia
“The influence of Florence + the Machine and Matt Corby shines through as well as that of London Grammar and the more sentimental side of Lorde’s catalogue.” – Beat Magazine
“Bursting with narrative and soul… TYDE is a trio ready to shake up the industry and re-write music as we know it.” – Happy Mag
“The degree of songcraft and musical maturity on display… …is even more interesting when held up against the band members’ ages: Ella at 21, drummer Josh Garnett 22, and bass play Zoe Belfanti the youngest at just 15 years old.” – Blank GC
“TYDE seemingly has all the ingredients to be a name in everyone’s mouth for years to come…” – Livewire Music Australia
“…ability to create beautiful harmonies on the fly with her loop pedal, while delivering a quality brand of songwriting is impressive. … just formed a new band named TYDE, so check them out.” – Australian Musician

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

“Dave Wells has mastered the honest and beautiful. His songs soar, and his performances soothe” – KIM CHURCHILL

“He is a rare talent, a composer of thoughtful and stirring melodic folk-rock tunes, with a voice to match” – BEN SALTER

An enthusiastic young music journalist once described John Kennedy as a humble genius. John is neither a genius nor particularly humble. The Sydney musician is the writer and performer of many fine songs, some of which have found a place in the hearts of music fans of the golden era of Australian independent music.

John Kennedy started his music career in Brisbane in the ‘80’s with his band JFK and the Cuban Crisis. He moved to Sydney with the band and had early success with heavy JJJ airplay of indie hits like ‘The Texan Thing’ and ‘The Ballad of Jackie O’. The band broke up and John moved on to a strong solo career with his band John Kennedy’s Love Gone Wrong. More indie hits followed with songs like ‘King Street’ and ‘Miracle (in Marrickville)’ helping define what John called his Urban and Western sound.
Despite topping the Australian Independent Music charts with the ‘Always The Bridegroom’ album, commercial crossover proved to be elusive leading to John’s decision to leave Australia. He spent the ‘90’s living and playing music in Berlin, Hong Kong and London before returning to Sydney in 2000. He formed a new band and continues to perform and produce independent releases with his band John Kennedy’s ‘68 Comeback Special. He is based in his beloved Inner West of Sydney and tours to Brisbane and Melbourne regularly.

John has been very active in the last years with three new album releases. 2017 saw ‘JFK and the Midlife Crisis’ album, a concept album about a middle aged Inner West musician looking back over his life lived to an indie music soundtrack. Last year John released his second best of album called appropriately ‘Second Best’. And this year John and his band brought out a celebration of Australian independent music with covers of songs by the Triffids, Paul Kelly, the Scientists, the Go-Betweens and many others on the ‘Raining Treasure’ album. John has also played solo acoustic shows throughout his career.

John will perform songs from across his career at his upcoming Blackheath solo show.
Audiences can expect great music and many humorous stories relating to these songs.

Love Local Live was the Blue Mountains City Council’s first-ever series of local events that was brought to the community via live streaming.
Blue Mountains Mayor Mark Greenhill said: “While restrictions are slowly easing, public gatherings are still limited and we understand many in our community are hesitant to venture out into crowds. That’s why Council is still looking for creative and safe ways to engage with you.

Built from heartbreak, forged on love. Sarah Humphreys and Kristen Lee Morris met and decided to make a life and music together as Eagle & The Wolf. There’s nothing fancy or fake here, just open hearts, great songs and the truth. Together they are truly magical.

“Two of Australia’s finest singer-songwriters, indie-pop goddess Sarah Humphreys and alt-country troubadour Kris Morris, met, fell in love and now they’re making beautiful folk music together as Eagle & The Wolf.” – Timber & Steel

Sarah Humphreys has spent the last ten years opening her heart as she has grown into a woman, a mother and undoubtedly one of this country’s finest singers and songwriters.
Kris Morris is forging a reputation as one of Australia’s finest, and most honest, country & blues musicians.

Previously known as Andie Isalie, Dee, has chosen to rebrand herself amidst a new stage in life. Growing up in the Blue Mountains, Dee gained a hefty YouTube following throughout her teenage years under her old pseudonym, which brought opportunities of international touring and collaboration, crowd sourced projects and caught the eye of major players in the industry including SONY. Revaluating her career intentions and aspirations as a largely self-taught and immensely passionate soul/jazz/folk musician, Dee thought it best to turn a new leaf from a brand she felt was heavily tied to the YouTube sensibility, a mix of popular covers and original work. This change has been a weight lifted. While many fans of Dee’s previous work have joined the cause in support of her current musical journeys, this is a new chapter as Dee opens the door to a sense of freedom to be able to create with no prior held expectation. Standing at 4’11 and half, with steel lungs, infectious laughs and a totally DIY kitted out school bus as a house, Dee is synonymous with her raw lyricism and relatable energy.

Witches Leap ripple with the darkness of the uilleann pipes and Irish flute. Backed with progressive bouzouki and guitar, they take the pathos and feistiness of Irish music and reinterpret it with originality arisen from local mythology. Instrumentals composed by Jade, Leigh and Paddy give way to folk-punk inspired ballads.

CJ Stranger hones a unique sound and spirit. He carves out contemporary Australian music and perfectly matches gentle simmering with the raw honesty of reflective coming-of-age lyrics.
Slinging a small-but-powerful arsenal of instruments, CJ Stranger crafts his distinctive sound using an old weathered resonator, a weird vintage organ, and his beloved purple guitar Frankenstein-ed out of discarded bits and pieces. This array of re-purposed musical antiques allows CJ Stranger to sculpt a vivid and honest landscape for his musings.

These days based in the Blue Mountains while regularly Sydney-side, CJ’s 2016 debut album established his prowess as a singer, songwriter and guitar player, but it was a different kind of animal. CJ Stranger is an exaggerated and more nuanced side of Henderson, brought forth by exploring this new artistic persona.
A singer-songwriter through and through, CJ Stranger’s captivating voice, tell-all lyrics and natural feel for fingerpicking walk together in perfect synchrony.

The Three­ Handed Beat Bandits are undoubtedly the best three handed little big band in the world today.

Made up of the two-handed John Stuart and the single­ handed Neill Duncan, between them they play guitar, bass, congas, drums and saxophone, all at the same time.
Megaphone vocals included, this beat combo swing their listeners through a kaleidoscope of musical styles, including reggae, ska, calypso, funk, swing, and a little klezmer thrown in for good measure.
Beautiful to the ear, great for the feet.

Neill Duncan is one of New Zealand’s most exciting and eccentric musicians, now a resident of the Blue Mountains. Three years ago he lost his left arm to cancer. With the help of the community, Neill has been able regain full musical strength. Neill now plays an incredible one-handed tenor saxophone, designed and built in Amsterdam. His passion and musical imagination flow like never before. An adapted drum kit completes the mix, with some additional weird and wonderful instruments.

John Stuart is a master of the seven-string guitar. This amazing instrument allows John to cover the bass as well as provide the chordal accompaniment to the Bandit’s wide­ ranging repertoire. John is all about texture and space, switching between driving bass lines, and sparkling single line accompaniments. Bass solos? No extra charge. Add in the hot conga playing and all the elements of this extraordinary duo fall into place. Even the silences swing!

Together they are the Three Handed Beat Bandits. Their exotic musical gumbo will steal your heart.

At only 17, Katoomba singer/songwriter, Aurora Li is fast becoming a seasoned performer, playing regularly at live music venues, festivals and events in and around her home in the Blue Mountains and further afield, including Bello Winter Music, where she won the hotly-contested vocal category of the 2019 Youth Mentorship Competition, and the 2020 Illawarra Folk Festival, where she brought home Youth Tradition Awards in two categories. As the most senior member of family folk/bluegrass/indie pop trio, Breathing Underwater, Aurora has played to the packed concert hall of the Sydney Opera House as a featured artist for Pulse 2019, a showcase of outstanding young artists.
Alongside her performance commitments and hectic study schedule (she is currently preparing for her HSC), Aurora writes songs that are sometimes upbeat and irreverent, occasionally sad and angry, and often deeply moving, but always showing a wisdom and insight far beyond her years. Her spare, indie pop/folk sound is complimented by sharply observed lyrics that urge you to close your eyes and listen in, as she ponders the regrets, worries and passions of teenage life with a voice that will gently carry you along for the ride.

People who have heard her sing tend to describe Luca Zumwalt as an old soul. At 8 she picked up her first uke, at 9 she dubbed herself “Ace Evergreen” and she’s been quietly and earnestly crafting a unique musical identity ever since – shaped in one part by her own tremendous gifts and in another by an eclectic playlist of indie artists from Rebecca Sugar to Florence & the Machine, Girl in Red to Weezer. Fast forward another 2 years and Ace has swapped the uke for a guitar, comes armed with a truckload of vocal skill and charm and writes songs pulled from places you wouldn’t think an 11-year-old capable of going. Songs about existential dread, immortality, death, life, love. This is quintessential Ace Evergreen: a sensitive and small soul living an inconceivable conundrum just trying to make sense of it all through song.

POSTPONED – THE BUTTON COLLECTIVE Unplugged Album Launch Tour + Special Guest TBA at Junction 142 Katoomba, Blue Mountains – SAT 27th June 2020

Hello everyone, this event is still postponed as the online information indicates.

Restrictions on national touring as well as limited venue capacities due to social distancing requirements have meant that confirming the new date hasn’t been possible as yet.

Unfortunately as long as social distancing remains in place this particular venue can only accommodate 36 people in total including all performers and staff. So not enough guests in the end to make putting on a concert with touring performers viable at this stage (and keeping ticket prices accessible for customers).

I have moved the online promotion to a new temporary date for now but will announce the set date as soon as we are able to confirm.

If you have any further questions then please contact us directly:

Kind Regards
Charity

Fusion Boutique Presents
THE BUTTON COLLECTIVE UnButtoned (acoustic unplugged) concert
‘Make a Dead Man Sing’ Album Launch Tour
+ Special Guest TBA
live in Concert at Junction 142 Katoomba, Blue Mountains

Announcement: In light of the current situation surrounding COVID-19 this event will need to be postponed.
We are also in the process of working with the artists and venue on a rescheduled date and will advise of that as soon as available.

Saturday 27th June 2020, 8:30pm. Doors Open 7:30pm.

Listen to The Button Collective’s latest album release ‘Make a Dead Man Sing’ and you’d be forgiven for thinking you’d slipped through the fabric into Australia’s colonial heyday. The album, recorded live on tape in front of a few small audiences, combines classic tales of Australia’s onerous past with personal stories from songwriter Brodie Buttons.

The Button Collective bring back to life an essence of Australia that has been largely drowned out by the hum of progress and development in this parched country. Brodie Buttons brings with his songwriting an air of wisdom well beyond his years. With an earnest yet jovial presence, he shares an intimacy and perspective that engages both young and old, and leaves audiences with that timeless kind of yearning for the simplicity of yesteryear.

As well as original folk songs, the five piece band perform their own fiery versions of traditional Irish, Australian, and old time American tunes passed down through generations. The performances range from heartfelt finger-picking to full-blown high energy party-folk perfect for a hoedown. In fact, their live performance is rumoured to actually Make a Dead Man Sing.

Some of her major influences are the likes of; Patty Griffin, Lucinda Williams, Sheryl Crow, and Rickie Lee Jones.

We are very pleased to welcome Gretta back for her single launch tour.

Gretta Ziller is an Americana Folk Singer/Songwriter with an ever-growing list of musical accolades. Her name may have more meaning at this stage in her career to the Australian Country Music scene, having recently been a finalist in the Alt-Country Album of the year category of the 2018 Golden Guitars, but just like Lucinda Williams she is as much folk/blues/country singer-songwriter as Lucinda and her placing in the finals of the “Americana” category of the 2016 Unsigned Only & a semi-finalist in the 2017 International song writing competition cemented that.
Gretta was a 2015 Toyota Star Maker grand finalist and has also been involved in the Telstra Road to Discovery competition gaining a spot in the 2013 grand final, that same year she was the TSA/APRA New Songwriter of the year. With vocals that range from sweet folk to gritty blues you’d never know Gretta started off her career as a Classical singer, and song writing idols like Steve Earle, Jim Lauderdale and Paul Kelly, Gretta is finding a multitude of welcoming arms for her blend of Country Folk & Americana music.
In 2017 Gretta has played alongside the likes of Shane Nicholson, Bennett, Bowtell & Urquhart, Brad Butcher, Paddy McHugh & Lachlan Bryan just to name a few. Gretta released her debut album September 1 through Social Family Records.

First impressions aren’t always right. If you’ve been foolish enough to nail down the sound of acclaimed songwriter Gretta Ziller, then prepare to have the rug pulled out from under you. Queen of Boomtown, her stunning debut record, defies categorisation and demands repeated listens.

Since it’s release in 2017 Queen of Boomtown was not only long-listed for the Australian Music Prize but Gretta was also invited to perform at the Melbourne launch along side Jen Cloher & Birdz. The album received rave reviews from press, including Rhythms Magazine and a 4 star review from Rolling Stone Magazine. ‘Slaughterhouse Blues’ the first single from her album was also given an Honourable mention in the 2017 Unsigned Only and International Songwriting Competitions. The album was nominated for a Golden Guitar as well as an Age Music Award in 2018 and Gretta was mentored by Tom Busby (Busby Marou) as part of the 2018 APRA inaugural female songwriters mentorship program. Gretta was also an APRA PD finalist & performed at Australian Music Week November 2019, most recently she received a Golden Guitar nomination with ‘Vocal Collaboration of the Year’ for her song ‘Second Hand’. Gretta is due to release her second album mid 2020.

We are very pleased to welcome John Kennedy back for another solo performance.

An enthusiastic young music journalist once described John Kennedy as a humble genius. John is neither a genius nor particularly humble. The Sydney musician is the writer and performer of many fine songs, some of which have found a place in the hearts of music fans of the golden era of Australian independent music.

John Kennedy started his music career in Brisbane in the ‘80’s with his band JFK and the Cuban Crisis. He moved to Sydney with the band and had early success with heavy JJJ airplay of indie hits like ‘The Texan Thing’ and ‘The Ballad of Jackie O’. The band broke up and John moved on to a strong solo career with his band John Kennedy’s Love Gone Wrong. More indie hits followed with songs like ‘King Street’ and ‘Miracle (in Marrickville)’ helping define what John called his Urban and Western sound.
Despite topping the Australian Independent Music charts with the ‘Always The Bridegroom’ album, commercial crossover proved to be elusive leading to John’s decision to leave Australia. He spent the ‘90’s living and playing music in Berlin, Hong Kong and London before returning to Sydney in 2000. He formed a new band and continues to perform and produce independent releases with his band John Kennedy’s ‘68 Comeback Special. He is based in his beloved Inner West of Sydney and tours to Brisbane and Melbourne regularly.

John has been very active in the last years with three new album releases. 2017 saw ‘JFK and the Midlife Crisis’ album, a concept album about a middle aged Inner West musician looking back over his life lived to an indie music soundtrack. Last year John released his second best of album called appropriately ‘Second Best’. And this year John and his band brought out a celebration of Australian independent music with covers of songs by the Triffids, Paul Kelly, the Scientists, the Go-Betweens and many others on the ‘Raining Treasure’ album. John has also played solo acoustic shows throughout his career.

John will perform songs from across his career at his upcoming Blackheath solo show.
Audiences can expect great music and many humorous stories relating to these songs.

Saije is a multi-instrumental folk duo whose soulful harmonies, dynamic guitar-lines and percussive breakdowns breathe life into heartfelt stories. Their song writing typically encourages connection to self, to the earth and to each other, inviting you on a journey from the depths of ancient forests to bustling French markets, weaving threads of Celtic and French gypsy flavours into their songs along the way.

Since returning home from an eight-month European tour, they have uplifted audiences at a number of Australia’s festival gems; including WOODFORD FOLK FESTIVAL, MULLUMBIMBY MUSIC FESTIVAL, CYGNET FOLK FESTIVAL, and the NATIONAL FOLK FESTIVAL where they received the Folk Alliance Australia Young Artist of the Year Award 2019-2020.

In early 2020 they toured their latest release, ‘Kindred’, through Australia, the US and Canada, playing an official showcase at the world’s largest folk gathering, FOLK ALLIANCE INTERNATIONAL, in New Orleans (US) and 15 shows throughout Canada, including WINTERFOLK BLUES AND ROOTS FESTIVAL (CAN).

22 year old Irish twins Brandon and Ashley Watson combine to create The Ocelots. They have crafted their songwriting and musical experience together to produce a forceful blend of rich harmonies and bare, raw acoustic folk. Their music perfectly embodies the breezy effortlessness of early Bob Dylan, and Simon & Garfunkel.

During the 2018 summer festival season The Ocelots performed all across Ireland, UK and mainland Europe and also toured with acts such as Jack Johnson, Glen Hansard, Hudson Taylor and Isaac Gracie.
They are now widely known for their instinctual expression in live performances, unique blood harmonies and stories full of wit, charm and spontaneity.

Now situated in Leipzig, Germany, The Ocelots will release their debut album in early 2020. The album contains elements of folk and alternative rock; while also being melancholic and indelible. Coinciding with the release they will return to Australia in Spring 2020, before continuing on into Europe’s festival season.

The Ocelots live set combines all that is great about live folk music, so come and be charmed by the charismatic duo.

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

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

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

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

Fusion Boutique is extremely pleased to present THE TEQUILA MOCKINGBIRD ORCHESTRA (Canada) in the Blue Mountains for their first Australian Tour. This trip sees them perform at Illawara and Cygnet Folk Festivals and other select dates.

The Tequila Mockingbird Orchestra are a collection of musicians, linked by common sonic journeys and familial ties. From ballads and sing-alongs to high-energy dance parties, they have spent years telling their stories with guitars and violins, with accordions and bass, with melodies and music makers gleaned from their wanderings. The band is from a sparsely populated region of Canada’s West Coast. They travel community to community, bringing people together at halls on the Gulf Islands, barns in the prairies, kitchen parties in towns, clubs in the cities and festivals all summer long.

Their music weaves a multicultural Canadian tapestry: Roots, Eastern European Dance Party, Jazz, Bluegrass, Flamenco, African, Latin, Celtic, Métis, Rock, Gospel, Blues, Canadiana while the band represents an eclectic background – German Mennonite, Chinese, Dutch, Scottish and Métis. These troubadours remind you that this music could not exist without warm bodies in search of harmony.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

CANCELLED – CHARM OF FINCHES (Melbourne) with BREATHING UNDERWATER in Concert at PIGEON LANE @ GALLERY ONE88 Katoomba, Blue Mountains, SAT 21st December 2019

Fusion Boutique Presents
CHARM OF FINCHES (Melbourne)
+ Special Guests BREATHING UNDERWATER

Live in Concert at Pigeon Lane @ ONE88

Unfortunately anxiety about travelling to and performing in a fire zone area got the better of the Charm of Finches girls on the way up from Sydney tonight and we had to cancel the show.
Thank you for your understanding and we wish you a very happy and safe holiday season and hope that you can join us for another show in the new year.

Saturday 21st December 2019, 7pm. Doors Open 6pm.

Melbourne’s angelic sister folk duo, Charm of Finches, are touring their highly anticipated sophomore album ‘Your Company’. They will be launching it at Pigeon Lane on Saturday 21st December as part of their national album launch tour.

It has been three years since the duo released their highly praised 2016 debut album ‘Staring at the Starry Ceiling’. ‘Your Company’ has been born of a time of turbulence. Following the death of Ivy’s best friend at the age of 14, the sisters’ songwriting turned towards the theme of grief, longing and the celebration of those left behind. This genre-defying album is lush with the sisters’ spacious string arrangements (cello and violin they play themselves), other worldly piano, a folky banjo and compelling ethereal vocal harmonies.

“There’s also the simple beauty of family voices intertwining, with Charm of Finches’ Mabel & Ivy – and even their names seem perfectly anachronistic for the folk purity of their music – providing the harmonies for Sky Watching… that slightly mystical alternate reality, maybe owing something to Joanna Newsom and that ilk. Despite – or perhaps because of – their youth, the music they make is affecting and emotional.” — The Music

“Charm of Finches make gorgeous chamber pop…their harmonies are immaculate and stirring as they move through an honest and, well, charming lyric.” – Tone Deaf

BreathingUndrewater300
Hailing from Katoomba in the Blue Mountains, NSW, vocal trio, Breathing Underwater, has been singing together quite literally since they were small children. Hardly surprising, since the group consists of Aurora Li, aged 16, her younger sister, Tessa McKay, 13, and their 13 year-old cousin, Magnus Blomquist. Despite their youth, the three already have a string of performances behind them, including appearances at Katoomba Live and Local Festival, the Blue Mountains Winter Magic Festival, Narragunnawali Festival of Music and were featured artists at PULSE 2019 at the Sydney Opera House. Aurora Li’s lyrically perceptive songs have been described as ‘sophisticated beyond her years’ as she takes her audience on an emotional ride through the highs and lows of life through her eyes. Throw in Magnus, Tessa, some fresh arrangements and lush harmonies, and you have a show that always manages to hit the sweet spot.
As well as performing Aurora Li’s originals, the group enjoys an eclectic mix of pop, folk and alt country music, including Celtic-inspired, Bluegrass and some Dylan and Springsteen, and their own arrangements of contemporary artists such as Lorde, the Lumineers, Kacey Musgraves, the Paper Kites and more.

MANUS McGUIRE (Ireland) with BEN STEPHENSON in Concert at PIGEON LANE @ GALLERY ONE88 Katoomba, Blue Mountains, SUN 15th December 2019

Fusion Boutique Presents
MANUS McGUIRE – Irish Master Fiddle Player
with BEN STEPHENSON (Guitar & Flute)

Live in Concert at Pigeon Lane @ ONE88

Sunday 15th December 2019, 7pm. Doors Open 6pm.

Manus McGuire is an acclaimed Irish fiddle player whose exceptional musical gift became widely recognised in 1970 when he won the prestigious Fiddler of Dooney, an Irish national fiddle competition at age 14.
He has performed with Buttons and Bows, Moving Cloud, Brock McGuire Band, and with his brother Seamus McGuire.

McGuire is honoured to have been voted “Male Irish Traditional Musician of the Year in the U.S.” in 2006 by the Irish American News in Chicago and to have received the Bravo Award from Trad Magazine in France in 2007.

Manus continues to perform and teach fiddle music at the highest level, primarily in the United States and this year alone, he has taught fiddle at Swannanoa NC and at the Evergreen State College in Olympia, WA in addition to performing a series of spring concerts for the Irish American Cultural Institute. He continues to support the links between Irish Music and its historical journey into the United States.

Brock McGuire Band which he co-founded in 2000 was awarded “Irish instrumental band of the decade” by the Irish American News. That band’s album, Green Grass Blue Grass (Compass Records 2012) is a collaboration with 14 time Grammy award winner Ricky Skaggs. It celebrates the musical connections between Irish traditional and American Appalachian music. It was awarded “Top of the World Album Award” by the prestigious U.K. world music magazine, Songlines in 2012. In 2014, a full orchestral scoring of their work was commissioned and they performed a programme with the Mississippi Symphony Orchestra in Jackson, Mississippi in March that year.

Earle Hitchner from the Irish Echo and Wall Street Journal in New York commented on Manus McGuire’s solo album Fiddlewings (2006) saying it “exudes class from first to last note played. Variety, virtuosity and vitality are the lasting impressions created by this recording”.

On his solo album Saffron and Blue, (2000) Bill Margeson, Music critic with The Irish American News, commented “ when the buyer purchases this album, he or she is getting in on not only a wonderful piece of work, but a musician at the peak of his powers”.

Manus will be accompanied by Ben Stephenson, a multi-instrumentalist who has risen to become one of Australia’s most sought-after Irish musicians.
Ben is an extraordinarily versatile musician, he gained a fierce reputation for his driving and subtle DADGAD guitar work. His powerful flute playing and crisp whistle sound.
Ben has performed and toured with some of the cream of Irish traditional music including the legendary piper Paddy Keenan, flute maestro Alan Doherty and fiddler Louise Phelan. An accomplished Irish flute and bodhran player, Ben is also a member of the acclaimed Australian Irish Trad Band “Trouble In The Kitchen”.

SOLD OUT – THE CROOKED FIDDLE BAND + Special Guests BURRALOW in Concert at the Baroque Room, Katoomba, Blue Mountains, SAT 30th November 2019

Fusion Boutique & Nomadic Fish Present
THE CROOKED FIDDLE BAND Album Launch
+ Special Guests BURRALOW

Saturday 30th November 2019, 8:30pm. Doors Open 7:30pm.

Venue: BAROQUE ROOM 15 Katoomba St

Katoomba, NSW 2780 Blue Mountains.

*** This show is now SOLD OUT!

We advise booking early to avoid disappointment! ***

The Crooked Fiddle Band return to Katoomba to launch their brand new album!

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.
The band’s last show before an 18 month recording break was in Katoomba, so they can’t wait to return for a wild night to show you what they’ve been cooking up!

The mesmerising and fiery acoustic 4-piece that is THE CROOKED FIDDLE BAND 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.
From whirling dances to intense battle-scene climaxes, this four-piece spurs the dance floor into a post-apocalyptic hoe down.

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 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.

Burralow-Band-Shot-LRG300

+ Special Guests BURRALOW

Burralow is an indie folk outfit fronted by the song writing duo, Sarah Heydon and Ryan Sheridan. Together these two hopeless-romantic songwriters have penned and orchestrated a collection of stories from life on the road and living in the Blue Mountains.
With a sound inspired from artists such as Cat Power to The Beatles, their shows are dotted with instrument changes and striking melodies.
Sarah sings and performs from behind a stripped-down drum kit and glockenspiel combination, while Ryan sings and wrangles a guitar. The band’s timbre teeters between acoustic and electric with Alex Sherdan fretting double and electric basses, Andrew Provan duelling between guitar and mandolin, and Maizy Coombes striking the fiddle.

THE SOUTH CAROLINA BROADCASTERS (USA) featuring Jackson Cunningham from The Whitetop Mountaineers in Concert at Hotel Blue Upstairs for ‘Live At The Attic’ Katoomba, Blue Mountains, FRI 22nd November 2019

Fusion Boutique Presents ‘Live At The Attic’ with
THE SOUTH CAROLINA BROADCASTERS (USA)
Featuring Jackson Cunningham from The Whitetop Mountaineers
Live in Concert, upstairs at Hotel Blue

Friday 22nd November 2019, 7pm. Doors Open 6pm.

The South Carolina Broadcasters are the “real deal” when it comes to Old-Time Bluegrass music, or “primitive bluegrass”, as they sometimes call it. Their razor sharp harmonies, exceptional multi-instrumentation, and fabulous song selection will have listeners riveted to their seats. Wherever they perform, audiences connect with the Broadcasters through their heartfelt songs and good old-fashioned entertainment.

Their material ranges from the Old-Time mountain music of Appalachia, through Carter Family country classics, and Cajun music, to original tunes that sound like they’ve come from the past.

The trio consists of David Sheppard (guitar & vocals), Ivy Sheppard (fiddle, banjo, & vocals) and new band member, Jackson Cunningham from The Whitetop Mountaineers (mandolin, guitar, & vocals).

This is the Broadcasters’ first Australian tour, playing the Dorrigo Folk & Bluegrass Festival, the Maldon Folk Festival and MountainGrass Festival, and a number of other gigs in NSW, Victoria and the ACT. However, Jackson has toured here a number of times with The Whitetop Mountaineers, playing all the major folk festivals including Port Fairy, the National, and Blue Mountains festivals, and numerous successful gigs, including a sell-out show at The Metropole, Katoomba on their last tour here in January 2017!

“I’d like to think that if AP Carter had had more time to think about it and work things out, the Carter Family would have been singing like the Broadcasters.” – Tim O’Brien

“Clear, powerful playing. Great singing. Respect for the past, all the while setting the bar high for musicians of the future. Strong music.” – Joe Newbury

An enthusiastic young music journalist once described John Kennedy as a humble genius. John is neither a genius nor particularly humble. The Sydney musician is the writer and performer of many fine songs, some of which have found a place in the hearts of music fans of the golden era of Australian independent music.

John Kennedy started his music career in Brisbane in the ‘80’s with his band JFK and the Cuban Crisis. He moved to Sydney with the band and had early success with heavy JJJ airplay of indie hits like ‘The Texan Thing’ and ‘The Ballad of Jackie O’. The band broke up and John moved on to a strong solo career with his band John Kennedy’s Love Gone Wrong. More indie hits followed with songs like ‘King Street’ and ‘Miracle (in Marrickville)’ helping define what John called his Urban and Western sound.
Despite topping the Australian Independent Music charts with the ‘Always The Bridegroom’ album, commercial crossover proved to be elusive leading to John’s decision to leave Australia. He spent the ‘90’s living and playing music in Berlin, Hong Kong and London before returning to Sydney in 2000. He formed a new band and continues to perform and produce independent releases with his band John Kennedy’s ‘68 Comeback Special. He is based in his beloved Inner West of Sydney and tours to Brisbane and Melbourne regularly.

John has been very active in the last years with three new album releases. 2017 saw ‘JFK and the Midlife Crisis’ album, a concept album about a middle aged Inner West musician looking back over his life lived to an indie music soundtrack. Last year John released his second best of album called appropriately ‘Second Best’. And this year John and his band brought out a celebration of Australian independent music with covers of songs by the Triffids, Paul Kelly, the Scientists, the Go-Betweens and many others on the ‘Raining Treasure’ album. John has also played solo acoustic shows throughout his career.

John will perform songs from across his career at his upcoming Blackheath solo show.
Audiences can expect great music and many humorous stories relating to these songs.

Smith & Jones are a duo from Bathurst, made up of keyboard player and vocalist Abby Smith, with guitarist and vocalist Sophie Jones. They 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. Nowhere does this desire for individuality shine brighter then on their newly released second album ‘Something Worth Learning’ which is still full of the charm and joy audiences have come to expect from them This new work delicately balances themes of love and loss, friendship and isolation, emotional desire and freedom, fearlessly exploring the depths of their musical partnership with the listener by their side.

Smith & Jones’ first album, ‘Dark Gives Way’, released in 2017, was extremely well received with it’s first three singles; ‘Baby Blue’, ‘Small Town Woman’ and ‘Your Achin’ Heart’, all went to
number one on the internet’s Australian Country Radio charts and received airplay around the country.

Though their roots will always remain in the foundations of country music, their originals have found an undefinable energy of their own. Part classic country ballads, part sweet jazz standards, and often with a tongue firmly planted in their cheek, their beauty is in their harmonic simplicity and lyrical power.

“They’ve taken the path of making music that they want to hear themselves, whether it’s the catchy pop sounds as heard on the first single SecondHand Heart or Running from Something. A slice of fun with a bit of walking bass and finger snapping, singing a love letter to the “Boss” which was written after seeing him in concert: Last Night I saw Jesus. Then there’s beautiful piano ballads ”One Last Time” and “In The Middle of the Night” which could have easily echoed out around Laurel Canyon in the early ’70s.” – Pat Coomey

– NEW ENTRY VIA THE CARRINGTON HOTEL DRIVEWAY –
Katoomba, NSW 2780 Blue Mountains.

Following the release of two brand new singles ‘Howlin at the Moon’ and ‘Save My Soul’ in 2018, along with an appearance at Bluesfest, Byron Bay, and a stack of sold out headline shows; award winning blues/rock singer-songwriter Shaun Kirk is proud to announce he will be dropping his anticipated, self titled EP this September.

To celebrate the release, the troubadour will be embarking on a huge twenty-one date tour across Australia & New Zealand to showcase his new tracks in what 2019 Grammy Award Winner for Best Contemporary Blues Record, Fantastic Negrito, describes as “one of the best one man shows he’s ever seen”.

The tour announcement comes off the back of Kirk’s recently disclosed signing with Canadian Artist Agency Paquin following his performances at the East Coast Music Awards back in May, and could be Australasia’s last chance to catch him in the flesh for some time as new overseas prospects appear imminent.

“Shaun Kirk has an energy that is unique, with a hybrid of musical styles that challenge genre classification, his shows are nothing short of an experience.” – Diesel

“One of the most explo­sive solo acts this country has to offer.” – Mixdown Magazine

“A truly hot new artist on the blues scene” – Peter Noble (Director of Bluesfest)

After 3 Best-selling studio albums, 2 EP’s and over 12 years of national touring. Owen Campbell has cemented himself as one of Australia’s premier Blues/Rock exports.

He has performed in many corners of the world from the USA, Ireland, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, France, Spain, Holland, Japan, Hong Kong, India and even performed at the highest blues festival in the world, The Himalayan Blues Festival in Kathmandu, Nepal.
Every album upon release has hit the Top 10 on iTunes Blues Charts in over 10 countries. One of which “Sunshine Road” reached Number 1 on the overall charts (Australia), knocking Adele of the top spot in 2014.
Originally hailing from Canberra Australia, Owen began playing at the age of 9 years old, guided by a diverse range of influences and a strong musical family. By the age of 17 he was performing in clubs/pubs/busking and cutting his teeth performing wherever he could.

Today, Owen Campbell brings a gumbo-like repertoire to performances all over the world. His smouldering guitar work runs from bluesy riffs to soulful finger-picking to lap steel guitar solos using a shot glass slide.
“My parents were a big influence,” says Owen. “They introduced me to such an awesome collection of music from such a young age. Bob Dylan, Van Morrison, The Band, The Rolling Stones. I always loved the variety and diversity to their sounds. My sound has bits of country, soul, roots, and rock. I love the variations.”

Now, Owen is gearing up to release his 4th studio album. “I thought it was time to do something different so I enlisted a group of talented friends and musical pilgrims and we congregated at a farm style studio in the hills outside of Cootamundra, NSW. We laid down the soul of the album over a few melting summer days and I quickly realised this was going to be something special. After so many years and albums I finally feel like I’ve found my musical homeland in this album. Easily one of the most rewarding rock n roll experiences I’ve ever had the pleasure to take part in.”

“One of the best performers to come out of Australia for quite some time.” – Argus News Ireland
“Owen Campbell brings us a sound born and bred in American southern country blues all the way from the Land of Oz.” – Blues Blast Magazine (USA)
“He propels with explosive anguish and undeniable charm!” – Glide Magazine (USA)
“Campbell possesses an exceptional musical personality. You wholeheartedly believe every note he plays and sings.” – Rhythms Magazine
“Seasoned musician with a mountain of talent.” – Sydney Morning Herald

Gretta Ziller is an Americana Folk Singer/Songwriter with an ever-growing list of musical accolades. Her name may have more meaning at this stage in her career to the Australian Country Music scene, having recently been a finalist in the Alt-Country Album of the year category of the 2018 Golden Guitars, but just like Lucinda Williams she is as much folk/blues/country singer-songwriter as Lucinda and her placing in the finals of the “Americana” category of the 2016 Unsigned Only & a semi-finalist in the 2017 International song writing competition cemented that.
Gretta was a 2015 Toyota Star Maker grand finalist and has also been involved in the Telstra Road to Discovery competition gaining a spot in the 2013 grand final, that same year she was the TSA/APRA New Songwriter of the year. With vocals that range from sweet folk to gritty blues you’d never know Gretta started off her career as a Classical singer, and song writing idols like Steve Earle, Jim Lauderdale and Paul Kelly, Gretta is finding a multitude of welcoming arms for her blend of Country Folk & Americana music.
In 2017 Gretta has played alongside the likes of Shane Nicholson, Bennett, Bowtell & Urquhart, Brad Butcher, Paddy McHugh & Lachlan Bryan just to name a few. Gretta released her debut album September 1 through Social Family Records.

Dave-Wells-Press-300

There are certain writers who command moving melodies and lyrics in equal measure. Dave Wells is one of those artists. The gifted musician has quickly garnered a word-of-mouth reputation as one of the Hunter’s finest songwriters and performers; a master craftsman whose songs creep up on you and cut deep.

Spaciously intense and progressive, his emotionally and sonically diverse debut record exemplifies Wells’ indie folk and alt-rock influences. Across the album, the Hunter Valley songwriter examines social realism through an abstract lens. He sets his sights on the biggest of themes: our inclinations for lust and freedom, moral boundaries, human desire, self-preservation, the cause and effects of love, jealousy and loss.
“This album taps into perspectives on life and society,” Wells says. “Alongside love and hurt, I reflected on a lot of things happening in the world and its effect on each of us.”

Dave embraces his audience through passionate performances, moving them with a voice that recalls the likes of Jeff Buckley, Thom Yorke and Neil Finn. His spirit on stage engages and captivates, and after several sell out shows since the album’s release, Dave continues to deliver uniquely intimate and memorable performances across the nation and abroad.

“Dave Wells has mastered the honest and beautiful. His songs soar, and his performances soothe.” – KIM CHURCHILL

“Dave Wells is a rare talent. A composer of thoughtful and stirring melodic folk-rock tunes, with a voice to match.” – BEN SALTER

MIKE + RUTHY (USA) – FROM THE MAMMALS
Live in Concert, upstairs at Hotel Blue

Friday 1st November 2019, 7pm. Doors Open 6pm.

Mike Merenda and Ruth Ungar are a Hudson Valley, USA based husband-and-wife duo setting the Americana/Indie-Folk scene ablaze, as a duo or with their five-piece band, The Mammals.
Singers, songwriters & storytellers, social & environmental activists, poets and parents, they tour with their children in tow, embodying a down-home approach to Americana.

Merenda is a prolific songwriter, who’s recent crowd-pleasing piece, Sunshiner, was nominated for an International Folk Music Award for Song of the Year. It is an ode to renewable energy which simultaneously honours the past and looks to the future with the sing-along lyric, “Yes my Daddy was a miner, but I’m gonna be a sunshiner.”

Ungar’s unique vocal style ranges from a capella balladry to earthy soul and country. She was raised in a folk music family and learned the fiddle at a young age.
She is carrying on her family tradition, being the daughter of legendary fiddler/composer, Jay Ungar, known for his famous composition, ‘Ashokan Farewell’ used as the theme for Ken Burns’ landmark documentary, ‘The Civil War’, which she also enjoys performing.

“Mike & Ruthy concerts blend artistry and authenticity, with fiery fiddle & banjo, emotionally potent harmonies, and dynamic stories that deepen the experience. Tap your toes and sing along as Mike & Ruthy “roam effortlessly through the whole span that is Americana, from alt-country to folk to bluegrass.” – The Bluegrass Situation

“These two will shatter any stereotypical misconceptions of what it means to be a folk musician” – The Coastal Journal

“Everything is masterfully performed as Mike Merenda and Ruthy Ungar sing about the charms of hard work, home made wine and free parking. Amid the barn dance reverie created by fiddle, pedal steel, horns and more, Ruthy’s versatile alto is the most glorious instrument of all.” – ABCnews

“Pristine” – The New York Times

“Some of the best song writing of their generation” – LA Weekly

MISSY RAINES TRIO (Nashville) + Special Guests WHOA MULE in Concert at Hotel Blue Upstairs for ‘Live At The Attic’ Katoomba, Blue Mountains, FRI 18th October 2019

Fusion Boutique Presents ‘Live At The Attic’ with
MISSY RAINES TRIO (Nashville) – Australian Tour
+ Special Guests WHOA MULE

Live in Concert, upstairs at Hotel Blue

Friday 18th October 2019, 6pm. Doors Open 5pm.

With a smoky and seductive alto, 7 Time International Bluegrass Music Association Bass Player of the Year, Missy Raines, heads up this all-acoustic ensemble. The territory the trio covers is broad and the compass is set by Raines, planted right in the centre of the stage directing with her bass every bit as much as she’s playing it.
“Raines launches her well-tended craft off the bluegrass dock into the waters of jazz and folk, holding onto the anchor of bluegrass while pushing steadily at the boundaries of the music that engulfs her.” – Country Standard Time.
In 1998 Raines became the first woman to win IBMA’s Bass Player of the Year award and she went on to win the title more than any other bass player in the history of the organisation. She has proven herself without doubt, as an iconic bluegrass instrumentalist.

“The countless miles Raines has travelled are a gorgeous, weathered patina on her songwriting as well as the careful, intentional arrangements — and rearrangements — of these songs.” — The Bluegrass Situation

“Her latest release, Royal Traveller, not only confirms her renowned instrumental status but also announces another first, as she debuts as a songwriter, 11 tracks that both reflect and reach beyond her bluegrass roots, to touch upon indie folk, jam grass and jazz-inspired material. ” — Folk Radio UK

“It isn’t often that a song will rope me into playing it on repeat. The title track of this album [Royal Traveller] though is one of those songs.”  — Americana Highways

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

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

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

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

Australian progressive folk/roots artist Jordan McRobbie has fast become known for his honest voice and virtuosic ability on the 12 and 6 stringed guitars, while laying Middle-Eastern and Celtic infused riffs over electronic beats and latin percussion.
Over his career he’s released two studio-records, toured internationally and taken out multiple song writing and performance awards including the West Australian Blues/Roots Song of the Year for his track ‘High Tide’ that garnered the young artist airplay on local and national radio including Triple J.

It has been a mammoth couple of years, playing festivals such as Nannup, Fairbridge, Bridgetown Blues, Peak Festival and over 100 shows a year, including opening for Neil Finn (Crowded House), Angus & Julia Stone, Fat Freddy’s Drop, Nahko & Medicine for the People, and touring with Mat McHugh & The Beautiful Girls to name a few.
Currently recording his forthcoming EP (Featuring members of Wolfmother & Dead Letter Circus) McRobbie now has his sights set on touring the record through Australia in 2019, followed by Europe and North America.

“Jordan McRobbie is an amazing contemporary finger-style guitarist. He has complete command of his instrument with intense guitar percussion, finger tapping, and lightning fast Celtic grooves! And this guy can sing! A great, strong, clear and articulate voice. His performance had 100% commitment with the intensity of tightly wound steel spring. He even added harmonica to the performance, truly a modern day one man band!” – Allan Spencer, Perisher Peak Music Festival

SHANE NICHOLSON + Special Guest Raechel Whitchurch in Concert at the Baroque Room, Katoomba, Blue Mountains, SAT 3rd August 2019

Fusion Boutique Presents
SHANE NICHOLSON
+ Special Guest Raechel Whitchurch
Live in concert at the Baroque Room, Carrington Hotel

Saturday 3rd August 2019, 8:30pm. Doors Open 8pm.

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

From his early days with Brisbane’s Pretty Violet Stain to his current status as Australia’s leading proponent of Alternative Country / Americana, Shane Nicholson has become a steady and constant figure in the Australian music industry.

He has won 3 ARIA awards – for his solo album Hell Breaks Loose in 2015 and his hugely successful collaborations with Kasey Chambers Rattlin’ Bones and Wreck and Ruin, 10 Golden Guitar Awards – including 2018 Male Artist of the Year – and an APRA award.

Shane is widely regarded as a major player in the Alternative Country field in Australia and the USA, having been nominated multiple times at the Americana Music Awards in Nashville. His latest offering, the highly acclaimed “Love and Blood” was released in July 2017 on Lost Highway / UMA.

“Nicholson’s is a uniquely compelling voice in Australian songwriting – it lives and breathes in the songsmith’s singular melodies, crooked humour, and short, pithy lines gently delivered.” – Rolling Stone Magazine

“One of the country’s finest songwriters.” – Rhythms Magazine

“Shane Nicholson doesn’t fool me with his tough guy exterior and his refusal to smile in photographs, the guy is a marshmallow, a poet, a genius” – Beccy Cole

+ Special Guest Raechel Whitchurch

raechel-whitechurch-300

For most people, there is a point when they decide that they’d like to play an instrument or learn to sing, and what follows is years of lessons and not a lot of performing. For Raechel Whitchurch, it was exactly the opposite. She took up mandolin at the age of eight to help out in the family business. It wasn’t a hobby – it was a way to make a living. The fact that she fell in love with making music was just the cherry on top.
Raechel grew up in an eclectic family of six who travelled to the most remote parts of Australia, lived in an old, green Millard caravan, and paid their bills by playing music at pubs on the weekends. Raechel, her parents and three younger siblings travelled from town to town, performing in a country family band that was slightly left of centre. Naturally, music is all she has known for as long as she remembers.

Many years of touring and performing have earned Raechel the right to step onto a stage with a natural confidence that immediately makes you feel at ease. She shares stories of her life that are hilariously relatable, and in the next breath is able to sing a song that can break your heart in a matter of minutes. Her big personality, skilful songwriting, and sincerely raw voice, has given her the opportunity to perform with many incredible artists, such as Kasey Chambers, Lisa Mitchell and Ruby Boots.

The Chambers family have remained close friends of Raechel’s, with Bill Chambers producing her debut EP ‘Outlaw’, and Kasey Chambers featuring on one of the tracks, “Sure Thing”. The first single, “Kerobokan Blues”, is an upbeat, but lyrically dark song, sharing the story of a man retelling his final memories in jail before his death.
Because what good country record doesn’t have a song on it about being in jail.

We advise booking early to avoid disappointment! ***

Fusion Boutique is very pleased to announce that due to popular demand a 2nd and final show is now being held at Gallery ONE88’s fabulous little exclusive speak easy venue ‘Pigeon Lane’.
This will be a very special intimate acoustic performance.

Multi-award-winning Melbourne contemporary folk outfit, The Maes (formerly The Mae Trio) is the brainchild of sisters Maggie (banjo, guitar and vocals) and Elsie Rigby (fiddle, mandolin and vocals). Born into the arms of the Folk music community, both sisters were side of stage at their first folk festival when they were four weeks old and have been absorbing and exploring folk music since that time.

The Maes’ latest, self-titled record released in April 2019 is a return to the sisters’ folk music roots. Gentle, intimate and conversational, the album is an unadorned showcase of Maggie and Elsie’s superb songwriting as well as honest, relaxed and stunning vocal and instrumental performances.

The album was born on a two-month tour of Europe and North America in 2018 shortly after the band changed its name from The Mae Trio to The Maes after the departure of founding member Anita Hillman. The sisters started the tour with a recording session in Canada, intending to make a four track EP. Fired up by the changes in the band, inspired and bursting with new music they kept looking for new recording opportunities as the tour progressed. By the end of the tour they had two tracks from Nova Scotia, Canada, two songs from the Isle of Mull in Scotland, two songs from different studios in Ireland and four songs recorded in their hometown of Melbourne.

The album features production from top roots music producers from around the world including, Daniel Ledwell (Oh Pep!, Jenn Grant, Good Lovelies), John Fitzgerald (Christy Moore, Crooked Still, Lisa Hannigan) and Brendon Love (Teskey Brothers). The album also features cello and harmony vocals by award-winning Brisbane musician, Monique Clare who regularly tours with The Maes and will be performing at this show.

Their latest release follows on from their sophomore album, Take Care Take Cover, which was recorded in Nashville by Grammy nominated producer/engineer Erick Jaskowiak (The Waifs, Crooked Still, Darrell Scott) and featuring some of that music town’s finest roots musicians. The record won them the Age, Music Victoria Folk/Roots Album of the Year in 2017 as well as rave reviews in Australia and overseas.

Since 2014, The Maes have been full time touring in Australia and overseas, winning over audiences with their striking songwriting, intricate instrumental arrangements and stunning vocal harmonies. The band’s touring history includes a list of some of the worlds largest and most prestigious music festivals such as, the Woodford and Port Fairy Folk Festivals in Australia, The Edmonton and Vancouver Folk Festivals in Canada, Cambridge Folk and Celtic Connections festivals in the UK and the Telluride Bluegrass Festival in the USA.

“simply superb sophomore album.” – The Australian *****

“…underscores the ever growing potential these girls have to capture a truly international stage.’ – Folk Radio UK

“The Mae Trio songs are powerful, the vocal harmonies soar, and their own instrumental prowess is impressive” – Penguin Eggs

“quite simply breathtaking” – Rhythms Magazine

“Located at a crossroads where Australian, English and American folk traditions meet, The Mae Trio are in the midst of creating something unique and very much their own” – Songlines

NATHAN CAVALERI + Special Guest KRISTEN LEE MORRIS in Concert at The Metropole Guesthouse Upstairs for ‘Metro Social’ Katoomba, Blue Mountains, SAT 29th June 2019

Nala Music & Fusion Boutique Present ‘Metro Social’ with
NATHAN CAVALERI
+ Special Guest KRISTEN LEE MORRIS
Live in Concert at the 1930’s Metropole Guesthouse.

Saturday 29th June 2019, 6pm. Doors Open 5pm.

Much of the country was oblivious to the career Nathan Cavaleri led beyond prime-time Australia. By age 12, he found himself the centre of a bidding war between the labels of Michael Jackson, Prince and Madonna. By age 16 he’d toured with B.B. King as his guest, and played at the Kennedy Centre in front of The Clintons with Etta James and Bonnie Raitt.

In 2010, Nathan’s battle with insomnia and anxiety was witnessed by thousands when he blacked out on a festival stage. Struggling to regain his confidence and drive he stepped away from his art with the expectation of never returning. Whilst the performing came to a halt, his song writing developed a far deeper level of expression with a diverse range of influences. This love of music offered him a similar type of therapy it had when he battled leukaemia as a child. Motivated by his passion to play and write, he stared down the fear of live performance and determined that it was time to make a record.

His upcoming EP ‘Demons’ stretches beyond the traditional rock, blues and roots that Cavaleri is known for.
The release of the first single ‘Demons’ marked his 6 year rise above mental health challenges and return to the stage. ‘Rising Sun’ is a track in which he pays tribute to the man that landed him his first record deal and tour at age 10, Jimmy Barnes, and is an emotive step from the profoundly beautiful title track.
This will be Nathan’s first solo release since he was signed to Michael Jackson’s label in 1994 and features songs that are a culmination of the diverse life Nathan has lived. B.B.King calling Nathan “the future of blues” is definitely an appropriate quote for how he has expanded beyond his roots.
“This time around, I wanted to express more than blues would allow. Each track throughout the writing and production process conformed to no specific genre and called upon an array of my favourite artists from J.J.Cale and B.B. King to Bowie, Lana Del Ray, and Mos Def.”

Cavaleri returns after playing sell out gigs up and down the East Coast, seeing him connect intimately with new and lifetime fans through both story and song. From how his love for music deepened during his battle with leukaemia as a kid, to a hilarious encounter with Led Zeppelin’s Jimmy Page and Robert Plant after playing to sixty thousand people in Zurich after Elton John.
However, it’s how he brings his experiences and songs into the present that gives audiences more than a shot of nostalgia.

klm-portrait300

+ Special Guest KRISTEN LEE MORRIS

Kristen Lee Morris has built a career on writing, singing and playing guitar in a raw and soulful fashion.
It is blues music at its core but with a freedom and range that also draws on country and folk styles. From the blues masters to Chris Whitley, Neil Young to Steve Earle – you can hear it all in Morris’ special blend.
In 2014 Morris released his well-received, Kasey Chambers-produced debut album Ruins. Morris shared stages with Chambers, The Blind Boys of Alabama, Charlie Parr, and Hayes Carll before he and partner Sarah Humphreys brought their Eagle & The Wolf collaboration to life with a rich and soulful Americana album of the same name.
2018 was the year of Hillbilly Blues, Morris’ second solo album and one that eloquently encapsulates the spirit and verve of the musician and songwriter; his raw swagger and charm in full flight. In recognition of Kristen Lee Morris’ songwriting, Henry Wagons chose the single ‘Cowboy’ as his local song of the year on Double J’s Tower Of Song.

ÁINE TYRRELL + Special Guests SMITH & JONES in Concert at The Metropole Guesthouse Upstairs for ‘Metro Social’ Katoomba, Blue Mountains, FRI 14th June 2019

Fusion Boutique Presents ‘Metro Social’ with
ÁINE TYRRELL
+ Special Guests SMITH & JONES
Live in Concert at the 1930’s Metropole Guesthouse.

Friday 14th June 2019, 6pm. Doors Open 5pm.

“Tyrrell’s incredible journey is one you’d be well advised to follow… A purveyor of elegant yet seductively psychedelic folk songs….” – Iain Shedden, The Australian

“Áine Tyrell delivers anthems for humanity with her new album Return to the Sea” – HHHhappy Mag

Story is at the forefront for troubadour Áine Tyrrell whose rich song-writing practice draws deeply on her Irish roots. Her latest offering ‘Return to the Sea’ was written and recorded in her homeland but mastered and crowd funded with one boot in the red dirt of her adopted country of Australia. Fiercely independent Tyrrell is not one to bend to the demands of conventional production arrangements, and so with the help of Creative Arts Victoria, her long time musical producer Mark Stanley, and her international fan base, ‘Return To The Sea’ went rogue, recording in lounge rooms, front bars, old churches, and remote islands.

Return To The Sea has just been released with first song “In This House” gaining international attention as a finalist in the 2018 International Song-writing Competition and being used across schools in South Australia to reteach the history of colonisation. In This House along with 9 other tracks make an album that is a treasure trove of contemporary narratives and musical sojourns with a solid respect for tradition and a passion for adventure and travelling to new lands, both real, and musical. ‘Return to the Sea’ is a passionate journey as it draws from a number of styles and influences. Certainly, the traditional Irish folk is in her blood, but so too are elements of soul and rock ‘n’ roll, entwined within her lyrical testaments. ‘Return To The Sea’ is a call to arms, a siren’s wisdoms and warnings, and most importantly the soundtrack of a woman who walks her own beat.

Her unwavering passion for justice and integrity has led to her supporting current Women’s Rights and Indigenous Rights issues through performances, social media campaigning, song writing and public speaking engagements.

“‘Return to The Sea’ is about standing in power, owning your own skin and making sense of the shared responsibility we have as humans. The album embraces stories that have inspired me to do more than just sit and hope for change.” Said Tyrrell of the album.
“It is my call to arms. Many observations between Australia and Ireland are scattered through the tracks, but the one common thread is that together we rise in strength when one human experience can mirror and then shape our collective understanding and action.”

SmithAndJones0L7A2954web300

+ Special Guests SMITH & JONES

Smith & Jones are a duo from Bathurst, made up of keyboard player and vocalist Abby Smith, with guitarist and vocalist Sophie Jones. They 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. Nowhere does this desire for individuality shine brighter then on their newly released second album ‘Something Worth Learning’ which is still full of the charm and joy audiences have come to expect from them This new work delicately balances themes of love and loss, friendship and isolation, emotional desire and freedom, fearlessly exploring the depths of their musical partnership with the listener by their side.

Smith & Jones’ first album, ‘Dark Gives Way’, released in 2017, was extremely well received with it’s first three singles; ‘Baby Blue’, ‘Small Town Woman’ and ‘Your Achin’ Heart’, all went to
number one on the internet’s Australian Country Radio charts and received airplay around the country.

Though their roots will always remain in the foundations of country music, their originals have found an undefinable energy of their own. Part classic country ballads, part sweet jazz standards, and often with a tongue firmly planted in their cheek, their beauty is in their harmonic simplicity and lyrical power.

“They’ve taken the path of making music that they want to hear themselves, whether it’s the catchy pop sounds as heard on the first single SecondHand Heart or Running from Something. A slice of fun with a bit of walking bass and finger snapping, singing a love letter to the “Boss” which was written after seeing him in concert: Last Night I saw Jesus. Then there’s beautiful piano ballads ”One Last Time” and “In The Middle of the Night” which could have easily echoed out around Laurel Canyon in the early ’70s.” – Pat Coomey

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

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 the young Australian singer, songwriter and one-of-a-kind guitar virtuoso first picked up his instrument of choice as a five-year-old following in the footsteps of a musical father. He began writing songs at 12, training classically throughout his teens and performing solo wherever he could, honing his craft and developing what would become the dynamite live show that he is renowned for today. At 18 he left school, turned professional and hit the road.

The next several years saw him traversing North America, the United Kingdom, Europe, New Zealand and of course, his homeland Australia playing such festivals as California WorldFest, Winnipeg Folk Fest, Vancouver and Mariposa Folk (Canada), Belgium’s Labadoux Festival and Australia’s Woodford, Falls Festival, Port Fairy Folk Festival and the legendary Byron Bay Bluesfest. He has toured and shared stages with Jake Shimabukuro, Jesse Cook, Roderigo Y Gabriela, Richard Shindell, The Ragbirds, The Waifs, Lucinda Williams, Judy Collins, INXS, John Butler, KT Tunstall and Ani DiFranco.

As one reviewer recently wrote, “still in his early twenties, the distances he has been would be more frequently associated with veterans of the Folk scene” – The Dwarf

Daniel has accomplished all of this while writing, producing and independently releasing two Eps, Gypsy Moon Volumes 1 and 2, his first long player ‘Pint of Mystery’ (2011) ‘My Own Design’ (2009), ‘Wide Eyed and Open’ (2010), ‘Real Live’ (2012), and ‘The Heartland Hurricanes’ (2014). His latest release “Fault Lines” is available now, and is receiving airplay and accolades globally.
A review of his two Gypsy Moon releases said the following: “Champagne has gone a step further this time, it’s like he’s realised his own potential, his confidence is sky-high and he’s truly ready to explore” – Australia’s roots music bible Rhythms Magazine

He is now regarded as a leading light in acoustic music, with a firm reputation for making festivals buzz, holding crowds in his palm, dropping jaws and breaking guitars wherever he goes. Daniel Champagne has relocated to North America where he continues his exciting career as an international touring and recording artist.

Flats and Sharps are a high-energy contemporary Bluegrass band, from Penzance, Cornwall, in the South West of England, known for their own highly original songs as well as their blistering renditions of Bluegrass classics.

These four incredible young musicians honed their skills in hundreds of live performances over the past six years, charming and wowing audiences along the way. They’ve come a long way, from their humble beginning busking in Penzance as 17 year-olds, to performing at the Proms in Hyde Park, London, and at scores of festivals throughout the UK, Ireland, Europe and Australia.

On their first Australian tour in 2017, they delighted audiences at the National Folk Festival, Canberra and Fairbridge Music Festival, WA. They returned here in 2018, again playing the National Festival, plus the Blue Mountains Music Festival and an extensive NSW tour.
They have since been invited to the home of Bluegrass, the USA, to represent the UK in the International Bluegrass Music Association’s “World of Bluegrass” in September 2018.
In 2019 they have been invited back by the Fairbridge Festival in WA, where they’ll also play the Albany Festival before heading east to Victoria and NSW.

“Flats and Sharps performances at Fairbridge Festival were nothing short of sensational. The standard of musicianship, rapport with audience and high entertainment value gathered more and more momentum as they dug into the event. Their final performance to over 1000 people on the final gig was one of the festival’s most significant events in recent years. I wouldn’t hesitate to book this band again in the future.” – Rod Vervest (Fairbridge Festival Artistic Director)

“…effortlessly entertaining …sublime five-part harmonies …the pace of their performance is breathtaking – I recommend seeing Flats and Sharps at the earliest opportunity. If you can prove your disappointment, I’ll personally send you a cash refund.” – Mark Ellen (R2 Magazine)

Dave Graney and Clare Moore are back in 2019 with a new album called ZIPPA DEEDOO WHAT IS/WAS THAT/THIS?
It’s approximately their 30th (?) and is a killer set of rock music – made properly, like they’ve always done. It has “eight songs done thirteen ways” and ranges from pop gems like “Baby I wish I’d been a better pop star”, to their homage to Stones Lore in ULTRAKEEF, and then the 8 1/2 minute West Coast epic jam that is served up twice in “Is That What You Did?”.

They play music drawn from a lifetime in rock ’n’ roll culture. They didn’t learn their licks in school, they made their own mistakes and set up their own standards.
Whatever they do, whatever they play, they bring their ace game. Their primo strategies. Their stellar grooves and street wise lyrical fire.

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.

Australian singer-songwriter Archie Roach’s music speaks the stories of his people, of this land and of the human condition. His voice – uniquely Australian and undeniably universal – continues to resonate for us all.

Archie emerged in the early ’90s. His ARIA-winning debut album, Charcoal Lane, was named one of Rolling Stone Magazine’s Top 50 albums of 1992. It centred around Archie’s heartbreaking song, ‘Took the Children Away’.
The song was a deeply affecting ballad about his own experience as one of the “Stolen Generations” of First Nations children who were often forcibly removed from their parents and communities and placed in non-indigenous institutions and homes.
The song’s impact was immediate. It went on to receive a Human Rights Achievement Award; the first time such an honour had been bestowed upon a songwriter and in 2013 it was added to the National Film and Sound Archive’s Sounds of Australia collection.

Archie’s career has spanned three decades. His work has been recognised locally and internationally. He has shared the stage with some of the world’s most iconic artists, including the late Leonard Cohen, Rodriguez, Bob Dylan, Tracy Chapman, Billy Bragg, Paul Simon, Joan Armatrading, Suzanne Vega and Patti Smith.

Archie will be performing songs from his new 3 CD box set of recent live shows, Into the Bloodstream 2012; Let Love Rule 2016 and Dancing With My Spirit 2018, marking the first time Archie has released recordings of his live concerts.

Archie has faced his fair share of difficulties over recent years. In early 2010 his long-time partner, collaborator and soul mate Ruby Hunter passed suddenly. He suffered a serious stroke in late 2010 followed by lung cancer surgery in 2012. Despite these challenges Archie continues to draw strength and healing from his music.

CHAIKA in Concert at The Metropole Guesthouse Upstairs for ‘Metro Social’ Katoomba Blue Mountains, SAT 27th April 2019

Fusion Boutique Presents ‘Metro Social’ with
CHAIKA
Live in Concert at the 1930’s Metropole Guesthouse.

Saturday 27th April 2019, 6:30pm. Doors Open 5:30pm.

Described as “spine-tingling” (Rhythms) and “extraordinary” (Fine Music FM), Chaika create worldly rhythmic textures inspired by Balkan vibrancy, Turkish markets, Celtic stories, and Australia’s own stunning landscapes. Fans have branded their genre blending sounds as ‘Nomadic Folk-Jazz’. Employing ethereal harmonies (in several languages), a myriad of instruments and a dynamic ability for discovery, Chaika re-imagine and create their own exuberant music traversing incredible landscapes with jazz-like dexterity.

This April, 2019, they will release their third LP ‘Arrow’ – an almost completely original suite of work injected with the compositional personalities of all 6 members. Chaika comprises of musicians who have written for and performed with a truly diverse roster, including Monsieur Camembert, Nahko and Medicine for the People, Nicky Bomba, The Brandenburg Orchestra, Riley Lee, Mara! & The Martenitsa Choir, The Song Company, The Rhythm Hunters, Kevin James, Baby et Lulu, Marais Ensemble, Elysian Fields, Miriam Lieberman Trio, Alireza Ghorbani, Great Waitress, Tángalo, Klezmer Divas, The London Bulgarian Choir, and The Renaissance Players, on major national and international stages.

At home wherever appreciative ears assemble – from dirt-stomping blues, roots, and folk festivals to the world-class environs of Sydney’s City Recital Hall – Chaika surprise, thrill and move the unsuspecting listener. Decidedly “outside the norm” (Timber & Steel) Chaika traverse another age, journeying an unidentifiable era and landscape, in a manner simply referred to by The Australian as “enchanting.”

‘Extraordinary.’ – Fine Music 102.5FM
‘Spine-tingling.’ – Rhythms Magazine
‘Enchanted.’ – The Australian
‘Outside the norm.’ – Timber And Steel

All the way from Co. Clare, Ireland, the prodigiously gifted Susan O’Neill’s soulful & husky-voiced performances are truly something to behold. Using guitar, harmonica, trumpet and a loop pedal, Susan delivers a timeless and powerful blend of the old & new. Her inspirational fusion of soulful Irish folk & her own acclaimed original material makes for an entertaining & enchanting musical experience.

Having been compared to both Adele and Florence and the Machine by Pure M, SON (Susan O Neill) from Ireland has, so early in her career, picked up many fans including U2’s Bono.
She covered U2’s Exit song for the Hot Press magazine 30-year celebration of The Joshua Tree and Bono, on hearing her version, emailed her personally ‘to the dark-eyed Susan…I love the stark rendition of Exit….your fan Bono.”

She has also supported Imelda May, Mundy, Alabama 3, Sharon Shannon, Fun Lovin Criminals, David Gray and Madness to name a few.

Her solo performances are literally mind-blowing. The amazing range of her gritty vocal combined with her superb guitar technique, her loop pedals and trumpet, make for a truly unforgettable musical experience.

Not content with mastering a unique choice of musical instruments, SON gained a BA in Music, majoring in recording techniques and minoring in the art of performance.

“Not only is she a powerhouse vocalist, a talented musician, she also knows how to get it down onto a track when it comes to the studio.” – Hot Press

Her debut album ‘Found Myself Lost’ contains some incredibly well-crafted songs and her voice sometimes soulful, sometimes brash but always beautiful, is world class. Ignore her at your peril, SON is here to stay.

Irish Mythen was born in Ireland and now resides in Charlottetown Prince Edward Island Canada.
“This Island creates music and musicians, art and artists. I found a shift to take things more seriously when I moved here.” And she did just that.

Her latest release, the self-titled Irish Mythen, gained her recognition around the globe with nominations and wins coming from Music PEI, East Coast Music Association, Folk Alliance International and SOCAN. Write-ups in Australian Guitar Magazine, the Rolling Stone, and a plethora of online publications world-wide have helped plant Irish firmly on the map of ‘Must See Artists’.

“I had no idea what to expect when this five foot nothing lady took the stage, all smiles and twinkling eyes and guitar. Then, she opened her mouth and out flew a voice that came straight from the Heavens with all the power and the glory and the truth of someone destined to be a singer. I’ve been blessed with seeing and hearing a lot of talented musicians in my life, but I have never experienced anyone quite like Irish Mythen. She is a force of nature and a gift from Almighty Herself.” – Lisa Schwartz, Philadelphia Folk Festival

“I was amazed at your ability to hold such a massive crowd as if it were a tiny one.” – Dougie MacLean, Artist

“By vote, the three most requested artists to return to Mariposa Folk Festival have been 1) Joni 2) Gordon, and 3) Irish Mythen” – Mike Hill, AD Mariposa Folk Festival

Saturday 5th January 2019, 6pm. Doors Open 5pm.

We advise booking early to avoid disappointment.  ***

Lindsay Lou and her band keep one foot in The Great Lakes State of Michigan with the soul of Motown, and one in Music City, USA: Nashville, TN. They still embody the soul of a good jam or late night pickin’ session, and also have honed in on a sound that’s entirely their own drawing from soul, blues, folk, jazz and maybe even traces of a techno beat.

As a vocalist, Lindsay falls into an elite category, along with her band of equally gifted musicians playing their own brand of Americana, Lindsay Lou is a not to be missed act.

“This is music that’s caught between the pull of the past and the push of the beckoning future, ready to leap forward bursting with new ideas and youthful energy.” – Devon Ledger, Hearth Music

+ Special Guests SMITH & JONES

Smith & Jones are a duo from Bathurst, made up of keyboard player and vocalist Abby Smith, with guitarist and vocalist Sophie Jones. In late 2016 Smith & Jones finished recording their debut album, ‘Dark Gives Way’, with Michael Carpenter at Love Hz in Sydney. This album’s first three singles, ‘Baby Blue’, ‘Small Town Woman’ and ‘Your Achin’ Heart’, all went to number one on the internet’s Australian Country Radio charts and also charted in Tasmania over four weeks. In October 2018 Smith & Jones will be heading back into the studio to record their second album, which will be released and toured in 2019. Though their roots will always remain in the foundations of country music, their originals have found an undefinable energy of their own. Part classic country ballads, part sweet jazz standards, and often with a tongue firmly planted in their cheek, their beauty is in their harmonic simplicity and lyrical power.

OWEN CAMPBELL + Special Guest Tally Ho & The 10-to-go’s (Oliver Morley-Sattler) in Concert at The Metropole Guesthouse Upstairs for ‘Metro Social’ Katoomba Blue Mountains, SAT 17th November 2018

Fusion Boutique Presents ‘Metro Social’ with
OWEN CAMPBELL
+ Special Guest Tally Ho & The 10-to-Go’s (Oliver Morley-Sattler)
Live in Concert at the 1930’s Metropole Guesthouse.

Saturday 17th November 2018, 6pm. Doors Open 5pm.

Owen Campbell is one of Australia’s premiere Blues/Roots/Rock performers who defies easy categorisation. He’s a slide guitarist, a songwriter, banjo player, blues singer, busker, and more.

After a spell off the road, Owen is coming back with a new release, new songs and a fresh approach.

Known for his controversial appearance on Australia’s Got Talent and constant touring and busking around the World, Owen’s last three albums have been big budget productions, working in the US with the likes of Devon Allman amongst others. They have netted Owen continuous top 10 iTunes chart positions over the last 6 years, serving him well. Even as this is written Owen currently has the #2, #3 and #4 album on the Australian iTunes Charts (Blues). It is, however, time for a change and an opportunity for the artist to get back to his roots and a more natural song-writing process.

Owen will be touring new material this September through December in Part 1 and 2 of the Take Your Medicine Tour.

“Seasoned musician with a mountain of talent.” – Sydney Morning Herald
“Possibly one of the best performers to come out of Australia for quite sometime, amazing lap steel slide guitar and a songwriting ability that belies his years.” – Argus News Ireland
“Impressive, Rootsy and Real.” – Jazz Weekly USA
“This (Breathing Bullets) is a very good album with strong, diverse songwriting that shows a lot of promise for songs not yet written, but eagerly awaited.” – Blues Blast Magazine

JOHN REISCHMAN & ELI WEST (NORTH AMERICA) + Special Guests EAGLE & THE WOLF in Concert at The Metropole Guesthouse Upstairs for ‘Metro Social’ Katoomba Blue Mountains, THUR 1st November 2018

Fusion Boutique Presents ‘Metro Social’ with
JOHN REISCHMAN & ELI WEST (NORTH AMERICA)
+ Special Guests EAGLE & THE WOLF
Live in Concert at the 1930’s Metropole Guesthouse.

Thursday 1st November 2018, 6pm. Doors Open 5pm.

John Reischman is one of the premier mandolinists of his generation. He’s a master instrumentalist capable of swinging between re-inventions of traditional old-time tunes, deconstructions from the bluegrass repertoire, and compelling original tunes, many of which have become standards. He’s also a powerful bandleader, touring his band the Jaybirds all over Canada and the United States. But most of all, he’s an understated visionary, the kind of master craftsman whose music is virtuosic without ever being flashy and who is renowned for his impeccable taste and tone as an artist. John Reischman embodies the true spirit of acoustic music in the 21st century.

www.johnreischman.com

Eli West is a Seattle-based multi-instrumental musician and interactive graphic designer. With an interest in angular phrasing and non-traditional improvisation within the historic precedents of bluegrass and old-time music, his playing both grounds and pushes the ensembles he is involved with. He has released three records as half of the new/old-time duo Cahalen Morrison & Eli West, which tours regularly throughout the US and Europe. Eli is an active ingredient playing guitar, banjo, and bouzouki with both Jayme Stone’s Lomax Project and John Reischman and the Pine Siskens.
‘Eli West is an exceptional singer, guitar player and musician, really deep stuff’ – Martin Simpson

Eagle-The-Wolf-300

“Two of Australia’s finest singer-songwriters, indie-pop goddess Sarah Humphreys and alt-country troubadour Kris Morris, met, fell in love and now they’re making beautiful folk music together as Eagle & The Wolf.” – Timber & Steel

“Separately Sarah and Kris are two of my favourite singer/songwriters ever but the first time I heard their voices together I was taken to a whole other place! The blend was like nothing I had ever heard before and broke my heart in the most beautiful way” – Kasey Chambers

Sarah Humphreys has spent the last last ten years opening her heart as she has grown into a woman, a mother and undoubtedly one of this country’s finest singers and songwriters. Her third album ‘New Moon’ produced by Australia’s finest, Kasey Chambers, received 4 stars from Rolling Stone Magazine who hailed it as ‘a mature, meditative offering from an Australian folk nymph, as natural and as honest as they come. Soulful & unpolished.’

Kris Morris is forging a reputation as one of Australia’s finest, and most honest, country & blues musicians. His songs cut to the heart and on stage with his guitar he can tear the house down. Audiences are at once captivated and blown away. Absolute truth and passion directed through a microphone and a cranked guitar amplifier. His record RUINS, a swampy heartbreaker also produced by Kasey Chambers, has opened his music up to audiences around the country. Recently, he has shared the stage with the likes of Kasey Chambers, Bill Chambers, Jeff Lang, The Alvin Brothers (USA) and been on tour with The Fumes.

DON McGLASHAN (NZ) in Concert at The Metropole Guesthouse Upstairs for ‘Metro Social’ Katoomba Blue Mountains, FRI 26th October 2018

Nomadic Fish & Fusion Boutique Present ‘Metro Social’ with
DON McGLASHAN (NZ)
Live in Concert at the 1930’s Metropole Guesthouse.

Friday 26th October 2018, 6:30pm. Doors Open 5:30pm.

Don-McGlashan-2018-2-B&W-sings300

One of Aotearoa’s most beloved songwriters, Don McGlashan, has announced a return to Australia for 4 intimate shows in October.

Don McGlashan is one of New Zealand’s best known and loved songwriters. His career spans from the seminal post-pop-punk band Blam Blam Blam, to The Front Lawn (duo), to platinum selling and internationally recognised band The Mutton Birds. Their album “Envy Of Angels” made the UK Sunday Times ten best albums list. Since The Mutton Birds, this extraordinary crafter of song has made three acclaimed solo albums, “Warm Hand”, “Marvellous Year” and “Lucky Stars”. His 2006 gospel anthem “Bathe In The River” – sung by Hollie Smith, has become one of the biggest NZ singles of all time.

He delivers his songs – extraordinary tales of ordinary lives – with vulnerability, grace and hope, conjuring transcendent moments, navigating us through breath-taking beauty, the dark and the deep. McGlashan has worked with Paul Kelly, Crowded House, Johnny Marr, Wilco and members of Radiohead, scored many feature films including Jane Campion’s “An Angel At My Table”, received two Silver Scroll awards and five of his compositions are in APRA’s “100 Best NZ Songs of All Time”. His solo albums are rich collections of highly personal songs exploring love, regret and mortality, infused with optimism and deep joy.

During this tour of NZ and OZ, McGlashan will be performing recent songs, along with plenty of gems from his sprawling back catalogue, McGlashan will play a string of solo shows, joined on a handful of dates by legendary drummer / percussionist Chris O’Connor (Phoenix Foundation) to give you an up-close and unique concert experience.

“A masterclass in song craft… with an inner world all his own.” ★★★★½ – Rolling Stone.
“An absolute pleasure… Rich, perfectly measured.” .” ★★★★½ – Sydney Morning Herald / The Age.
“Poetic honesty… shared with compassion. Quite exceptional.” ★★★★ – Stack (NZ)
“No one else gets close to writing songs like that, and making them work.” – Metro Mag.

Mama Kin Spender is a lightning bolt moment between two long-time friends, co-writers and mischief-makers: ARIA-nominated Mama Kin and producer Tommy Spender.
It’s a stripped back duo of brooding guitars, primal drums and howling harmonies.

Mama Kin Spender’s songs rattle, roll and tremble, from block party to heart rending ballad. With a sound that is as raw as it is joyful, Mama Kin Spender will challenge you to raise your voice in defiance of the status quo.

Mama Kin Spender have been flat chat since the release of their album ‘Golden Magnetic’ in February 2018, cramming in a national album launch run amidst shows at Perth Festival, WOMADelaide, Summersalt, Nannup Festival, Fairbridge Festival, SOTA, and Woodford Planting Festival. Fresh off the back of their USA, Canadian and Irish tours, Mama Kin Spender will be rounding off 2018 with some Australian festivals and show dates.

“Understated, slick and soulful” – Double J

“Mama Kin and Spender bring fresh ideas to an old school sound” – The West Australian

“A rich, textural, at times raucous and at times gentle but stirring collection of stories and fables.” – The Music.com.au

+ Special Guest Jacob Diamond

Alt-folk oddity Jacob Diamond sings bold songs about love and death. After years in Perth’s songwriting underground, Diamond has recently emerged as one of the foremost singer-songwriters in the west, furnished with huge melodies and incisive lyrics. He pens intricate, genre-bent bangers taking all the best bits from a box of 60’s compilation CDs, memories of a crowded Catholic childhood, Les Miserables and one reckless detour into jazz-study. Well short of being as confused as it sounds, his work has earned him first prize in The Big Splash band competition, WAM awards for best folk act (2015) and best male vocalist (2016), the acclaimed release of EPs Chum (2015) and Um (2017) and national tours and supports.

‘…A phenomenal voice, with excellent control and impressive range… the performance definitely promised the young talent to be an artist worth paying attention to.’- Larry Heath, AU REVIEW

SCOTTISH FOLK: ALAN REID (ex-Battlefield Band) and ROB van SANTE + Special Guests WOMBATS CROSSING in Concert at The Metropole Guesthouse Upstairs for ‘Metro Social’ Katoomba Blue Mountains, FRI 28th September 2018

Fusion Boutique Presents ‘Metro Social’ with
SCOTTISH FOLK:
ALAN REID (ex-Battlefield Band) and ROB van SANTE
+ Special Guests WOMBATS CROSSING
Live in Concert at the 1930’s Metropole Guesthouse.

Friday 28th September 2018, 6pm. Doors Open 5pm.

Alan Reid was a vital member of Battlefield Band from its inception in 1969 till his departure in 2010. In that time he toured all over the world and made almost 30 recordings with the band, working with such artists as Garrison Keillor, Van Morrison and Mike Oldfield. They won awards in Germany, Britain and the U.S. and throughout Alan was at the heart of the band, his keyboards underpinning the bagpipes and the fiddle. In being the first to use keyboards as an integral part of a traditional folk band Alan’s contribution to the band’s story has ensured its stature in Scottish culture as well as its influence on many of today’s Celtic musicians.
Alan’s singing has long been respected by his peers and his song writing has grown in stature ever since the 1980s when his songs first appeared in the band repertoire, lyrical songs steeped in history, strong in storytelling and rich in melody.

Dutch born Rob van Sante is a guitarist of skill and subtlety and a highly respected singer with a wealth of experience playing with a variety of prominent English folk and Celtic musicians.
His mother was a child prodigy on piano so it is no surprise that music has played an important part in his life.
Rob has appeared on many albums displaying his virtuoso vocal ability both as a lead and harmony singer, also showcasing his undoubted instrumental skills to a variety of projects. All these strands come together to make a perfect foil to Alan and his music.

Alan & Rob present an evening of old and new music, featuring Alan’s compositions, Battlefield Band favourites and songs from Rob. The show combines open tuned lead and accompaniment guitar work from Rob, Alan’s keyboard, guitar and accordion and fine harmony singing from both.

“Alan Reid…a singing voice which comes over as effortless, and undoubted ability as a songwriter. His emotion filled ‘The Road of Tears’ one of the highlights” – THE PERTHSHIRE ADVERTISER
“Robber Barons by Alan Reid, a song of quiet and thoughtful fury rather than furious polemic…” – ROBIN DENSELOW, BBC
“Rob van Sante provides beautiful guitar backing…with gentle passion eliciting harmonies and driving rhythms…delivering songs with heartfelt sincerity” – THE BEAT MAGAZINE, LONDON, ONTARIO

+ Special Guests WOMBATS CROSSING

With a foot in Australian and Celtic music camps, singer Christine Wheeler leads her trio Wombats Crossing in a rich blend of delicacy, strength and beautiful melodies. Christine’s classic folk singing style is amplified by Rebecca Daniel’s distinguished experience as orchestral lead violinist and Leigh Birkett’s capacity for harmonic invention on guitar, bouzouki and mandolin.

“Christine Wheeler’s beautiful voice swirls and layers with her accomplished musical friends to inflate a venue with exquisite ripples of sound. This music is compassionate, powerful and joyful.” – NSW Folk Federation Magazine

“Your performance as a singer and musician is delightful and I was completely taken by how you own this music. Your fellow musicians and singers are also superb in their performances.” – Warren Daly, OAM

TANGENTS + Special Guest BROKEN CHIP in Concert at The Metropole Guesthouse Upstairs for ‘Metro Social’ Katoomba Blue Mountains, SAT 1st September 2018

Fusion Boutique Presents ‘Metro Social’ with
TANGENTS
+ Special Guest BROKEN CHIP
Live in Concert at the 1930’s Metropole Guesthouse.

Saturday 1st Sept 2018, 6pm. Doors Open 5pm.

Tangents incendiary live shows are driven by live drums and electronic beats, with processed performances on cello, electric guitar and piano/Rhodes electric piano. Their live show is a natural extension of their recorded work – unique and unrepeatable, featuring an instinctual, organic sense of time & space, rhythm & melody between the five musicians.
Their new album, New Bodies is set to be released by legendary Brooklyn based label Temporary Residence (Mogwai, Explosions In The Sky, Hauschka, My Disco) in mid 2018.

After an eventful year of touring throughout their native Australia – including runs with labelmates MONO and like-minded pioneers Tortoise – and featuring alongside the work of artist David Hockney at the National Gallery of Victoria, Tangents return with their new album New Bodies, another stylistic detour that continues their rummage through countless varieties of electronics, rock, dub, noise and jazz that defines the group’s acclaimed aesthetic.

Celebrating the release of New Bodies, the group make a stop at the Metropole for an intimate evening of beautiful melodies, intricate grooves and exhilarating improvisation.

+ Special Guest BROKEN CHIP

With a contempt for conventionality and a love for experimentation, Broken Chip creates music that is electronic yet organic, machine yet human. Traditional instruments and homemade software are used for this expedition into the sonic wilderness; this Australian artist conducts an orchestra of fat wet boots crunching through snow, of dark leaky basements, of wind whispering through winter wastelands. It’s a lesson in evoking mood.

“Few guitarists can present Celtic music with the gusto and nuance they possess when played on fiddles or bagpipes. Tony McManus is one of those few.” – Acoustic Guitar Magazine

Conjuring a unique but universal language from that most ubiquitous of instruments, the acoustic guitar, Tony McManus has both extended and transcended the parameters of contemporary Celtic music. Ranked by peers and predecessors alike alongside the guitar world’s all-time greats, his fiendishly dexterous, dazzlingly original playing draws on traditions from the entire Celtic diaspora, along with still further-ranging flavours, such as jazz and east European music. Long applauded for his uncanny ability to transpose the delicate, complex ornamentation characteristic of traditional bagpipe or fiddle tunes – even the phrasing of a Gaelic song – onto his own six strings, McManus is increasingly being acknowledged also as a pioneering figure in bridging the realms of Celtic music and other guitar genres.

McManus’s first, self-titled album was released in 1996 to widespread critical acclaim. This was followed by Pourquoi Quebec in 1999 which led to worldwide recognition. However, it was with the release of Ceol More in 2002 that Tony’s stature as a first class musician reached a new level. Critics hailed the focussed, spell-binding nature of the music, from the plaintive Jewish hymn “Shalom Aleichem” to the ingenious arrangement of the Charles Mingus classic “Goodbye Pork Pie Hat”. Having been nominated as Musician of the Year by both the BBC Folk Awards and The Scottish Traditional Music awards, in 2002 “Ceol More” hit the Critic’s Album of the year list in Acoustic Guitar magazine and named “Live Ireland Awards” Album of the Year.
His 2009 release “The Maker’s Mark” saw him showcase 15 of the finest luthier built guitars available and caught the attention of the mainstream rock guitar press in a way that acoustic work rarely does.
Never one to be typecast, Tony’s new album “Mysterious Boundaries” is his most ambitious to date. An encouraging challenge from mandolin virtuoso Mike Marshall to learn the Bach E Major Prelude on guitar led to an exploration of classical and baroque. McManus has produced a work of great originality and beauty, hailed by his peers as “a masterpiece” – Renbourn, “beyond beautiful… it’s PERFECT!” – Tommy Emmanuel.

Tony’s latest collaboration is with partner, fiddle and guitar player Julia Toaspern, a native of Berlin and a successful musician in her own right. Julia will be guesting with Tony on his latest Australian tour post his appearances at the prestigious 2018 Adelaide Guitar Festival.

+ Special Guest MARTIN FOOTE

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 to 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. After meeting the guitarists Joe Robinson and Michael Fix, Martin was encouraged to study the instrumental works and guitar styles of the legendary Tommy Emmanuel.
Over the next few years, Martin attended Emmanuel’s workshop and two residential guitar camps, at the end of which he performed Classical Gas together with Tommy.
Martin’s EP, ‘Moving On’ was released at the Blue Mountains Music Festival in March 2018.

+ Special Guests DEVIL ON THE ROOFTOP

Devil on the Rooftop are a fantastical realm between Eastern European folk tunes, Bluegrass and something else…
DOTR is combination of the talents of Jess Randall (The Crooked Fiddle Band) and Morgan Haselden (Mimosa).

Jess Randall entangles her classical background with a gut-wrenching no-holds-barred approach to traditional fiddling styles. She has toured Europe, The UK, Scandinavia and Australia on many occasions with her other musical love, The Crooked Fiddle Band.
Jess’ love of ‘faster than you can actually play’ Romanian fiddle style and appreciation of it’s parallelism with hard-driving Bluegrass set her off on a quest to train-wreck the genres into something more than the sum of it’s parts, finally emerging with Devil on the Rooftop.

Morgan Haselden founded ‘Mimosa’, a modern Gypsy duo, which has toured Australia and France. Morgan has studied under some of Australia’s best classical guitarists and performs regularly as a Classical and Gypsy performer.

Dermot Byrne was awarded TG4’s Traditional Musician of the Year in 2013. From Buncrana in Co. Donegal, he is recognised as one of the great accordion players of his generation.

Bríd Harper is a senior All-Ireland Fiddle Champion and is enormously respected both as a teacher and performer.

This duo will be visiting Australia for the first time.

Bríd Harper is hailed as one of the leading exponents of traditional fiddle playing of our time. Encouraged by her parents, she grew up learning and playing Irish traditional music, going on to win numerous under-age All Ireland titles and other prestigious fiddle awards including the Senior All Ireland, Oireachtas na Gaeilge and Fiddler of Dooney. An MA graduate of the Irish World Academy at the University of Limerick, Bríd has toured extensively and performed with many great musicians including Dermot Byrne, Tony O’Connell, Steve Cooney, Donogh Hennessy and Arty McGlynn. Bríd is a highly respected teacher and has tutored at many summer schools and workshops throughout Ireland and in France, Holland and the USA. Her first solo CD was released in 2015 and has enjoyed much success to date.

Dermot Byrne has played accordion since a very young age, having learned from his father Tomás O’Beirn, who comes from Teileann area of South West Donegal, and is an enthusiastic promoter of the tradition. Dermot had the good fortune to meet all the greats of Donegal music, including Johnny Doherty, Con Cassidy and Tommy Peoples, Danny Meehan and many more, and they made a great impact on the young Dermot, who went on to develop a unique style. His seemingly effortless playing, combined with great subtlety, and a faultless ear, makes him one of the great accordion players of his generation. As well as his mastery of the Donegal style and repertoire, Dermot can turn with ease to other styles and traditions such as French musette, or South American choro music. He guested on two Altan recordings “The Red Crow” and “Island Angel” before joining the band in 1994. Dermot has guested on collaborations with many great musicians including Seamus and Manus McGuire, Sharon Shannon, Salsa Celtica, Steeve Cooney, Dezi Donelly, Brid Harper, Frankie Gavin, Tommy Peoples, Pierre Schryer, Tim O’Brien and the late jazz violinist, Stephane Grappelli. He was the recipient of TG4 Gradam Traditional Musician of the Year in 2013. According to Siobhan Long (Irish Times) his solo recording in 1995 and re-released in 2015 is ‘a timeless delight that stradles centuries with the agility and ease that Byrne’s fingers ricochet across the reeds’.

Witches Leap take the dark modal sounds of old Ireland, filter them through the hanging swamps of the Blue Mountains and cut them with original convict-noir folk songs of black bushrangers and errant redcoats. Born out of the kitchen table sessions of the Blue Mountains, this trio features the distinctive earthy tones of the uilleann pipes, wooden Irish flute and bouzouki, along with acclaimed songwriting from Paddy Connor (Lime and Steel). With original tunes springing from the local sandstone and mythology, Witches Leap takes Irish trad on a journey through the grit of early New South Wales.
Witches Leap are currently touring the new EP they recorded in Blackheath: “Tunes From the Hanging Swamp”.

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 the young Australian singer, songwriter and one-of-a-kind guitar virtuoso first picked up his instrument of choice as a five-year-old following in the footsteps of a musical father. He began writing songs at 12, training classically throughout his teens and performing solo wherever he could, honing his craft and developing what would become the dynamite live show that he is renowned for today. At 18 he left school, turned professional and hit the road.

The next several years saw him traversing North America, the United Kingdom, Europe, New Zealand and of course, his homeland Australia playing such festivals as California WorldFest, Winnipeg Folk Fest, Vancouver and Mariposa Folk (Canada), Belgium’s Labadoux Festival and Australia’s Woodford, Falls Festival, Port Fairy Folk Festival and the legendary Byron Bay Bluesfest. He has toured and shared stages with Jake Shimabukuro, Jesse Cook, Roderigo Y Gabriela, Richard Shindell, The Ragbirds, The Waifs, Lucinda Williams, Judy Collins, INXS, John Butler, KT Tunstall and Ani DiFranco.

As one reviewer recently wrote, “still in his early twenties, the distances he has been would be more frequently associated with veterans of the Folk scene” – The Dwarf

Daniel has accomplished all of this while writing, producing and independently releasing two Eps, Gypsy Moon Volumes 1 and 2, his first long player ‘Pint of Mystery’ (2011) ‘My Own Design’ (2009), ‘Wide Eyed and Open’ (2010), ‘Real Live’ (2012), and ‘The Heartland Hurricanes’ (2014). His latest release “Fault Lines” is available now, and is receiving airplay and accolades globally.
A review of his two Gypsy Moon releases said the following: “Champagne has gone a step further this time, it’s like he’s realised his own potential, his confidence is sky-high and he’s truly ready to explore” – Australia’s roots music bible Rhythms Magazine

He is now regarded as a leading light in acoustic music, with a firm reputation for making festivals buzz, holding crowds in his palm, dropping jaws and breaking guitars wherever he goes. Daniel Champagne has relocated to North America where he continues his exciting career as an international touring and recording artist.

PRESS QUOTES
“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
“One of the more amazing young percussive guitarists touring the world right now”
 – Blank, Gold Coast, Australia
“Today I saw the future of Folk – Festival goers flocking in their thousands towards the main stage to witness the young musical phenomenon from Australia dish out an absolute show-stopper at the evening’s end.”
 – Firefly Column, USA
“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
“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
“The superb talent of Daniel Champagne can’t be explained by mere words; it must be seen to be believed.”
 – FasterLouder, Australia
“There’s a reason Champagne has an amazing reputation as a live performer.”
 – Timber And Steel, Australia
“Within the boundaries of Folk, Champagne is an expert”
 – Tone Deaf

After growing up in the small town of Mulgoa, Karl has spent nine years on the road busking, writing and milking life for what it’s worth. He’s supported artists such as Matt Corby, Bec Sandridge, Tigertown, Lydia (USA) and Little Earthquake; frequenting many popular venues across Australia, from Melbourne to Adelaide, Sydney to the far North Coast.
With over three hundred songs penned, a thirst for self producing, and a recent move to the very top of the Blue Mountains; 2017 saw Karl renovating and building a studio in his wood cabin as well as beginning to record his first proper debut record. Karl has hunted down radio airplay with tracks such as “Melbourne” receiving airtime on Triple J’s ‘Roots and All’; and Dark Horses receiving airtime on ‘The Pines’ on FBI. Many of his other tracks have received high rotation airplay on Triple J Unearthed radio including “Statues in Paris,” “Dark Horses,” “Seconds to get Away” and his newest release “Now You’re Gone.”

TEN STRINGS AND A GOAT SKIN (CANADA)

Prince Edward Island trio TEN STRINGS AND A GOAT SKIN announce their first tour of Australia in March/ April 2018. This dynamic bluegrass ensemble will perform at The National, Yackandandah and Fairbridge Folk Festivals, plus concerts in TAS, WA, NSW and VIC.

Transforming tradition with vigour, curiosity, humour and spark, this Canadian trio wielding bodhrán, acoustic guitar and violin plays seamless, polished, barrel-drum-tight, rhythmically innovative and wildly entertaining music. Singing in both French and English, they were awarded “World Music Recording of the Year” by Canada’s “East Coast Music Association”. They’ve been nominated for two Canadian Folk Music Awards, and received “Roots-Traditional Album of the Year” (2012) from Music PEI.

Brothers Caleb and Rowen Gallant wield Bodhrán and violin, while Jesse Périard drives acoustic guitar, creating original songs and arrangements. Their recent album “Auprès du Poêle” weaves old-school Acadian roots (Franco-Canadian) with Breton, Irish and Scottish tunes, filled with wicked grooves and cunning quirks, featuring both traditional and original songs. Working closely with producer Leonard Podolak (The Duhks), Ten Strings and a Goat Skin pushed their music into new territory which promises to gather new listeners around the warm glow of fast-burning tradition.

Touring constantly through Canada, USA, Europe and the UK, playing at major festivals including Winnipeg, Vancouver and Calgary Folk Festivals, North Country Fair, Edmonton Folk Festival (Canada), Folk Alliance International (USA), Tønder Festival (Denmark), they were invited back for two years in a row to prestigious Shewsbury Folk Festival (UK). Yet the trio never forgets its powerful ties to the many musics of PEI, the island’s rich mix of Celtic and Francophone elements that ramble from mouth music to foot percussion. Originals take their cues sonically from this wealth and lyrically from a deeply felt connection to the history of Eastern Canada (“Caledonia”). Don’t miss them while they are in Oz!

“A seamless, polished, barrel-drum-tight, rhythmically innovative and wildly entertaining traditional music powerhouse.” – The Guardian

“They make music based in PEI’s folk traditions, with a drive and perspective that blows the cobwebs off any outdated view of folk music.” McIntyre Hall Performing Arts Center

“Ten strings and a goat skin are merely the instruments; it is the talent and charm of these three lads that brings them alive…A magic I never wanted to end.” Val Haller ~ Valslist, Chicago

“Toe-tapping fiddle tunes to heart-felt ballads … lively instrumentals and their breathtaking harmonies.” The Guardian

Probably one of the most exciting and progressive new roots groups to come through the Burren in some time…. The future for these boys is huge. Traditional music – roots and branches – on both sides of the Atlantic, is in very good hands!” – Penguin Eggs

JUNO and four-time Canadian Folk Music Award winners THE GOOD LOVELIES return to Australia in March/April 2018, launching their new album “SHAPESHIFTERS” at Blue Mountains Music Festival, Yackandandah and The National Folk Festival and a special series of concerts across NSW and Victoria.

Kerri Ough, Sue Passmore and Caroline Brooks are each immensely talented vocalists and songwriters in their own right, but together, their interwoven voices create such a powerful and pure, organic and inspiring harmony that the ensemble is elevated from impressive to peerless. They represent the essence of a creation which is certainly greater than the sum of its parts. In concert, their impeccable vocals, winsome song-writing and comedic banter have won them acclaim across Canada, USA, UK, Australia and Europe.

Over the course of more than a decade they have covered plenty of stylistic ground, including “folk-pop”, with country folk as their core and first love. The trio first united in 2006 for a one-off performance: they have since recorded eight albums, won a JUNO plus four Canadian Folk Music Awards, and charmed audiences across the globe, with the unmistakable sound of their intertwined voices as the sonic anchor.

SHAUN KIRK ‘Howlin at the Moon’ Single Release Tour + Special Guest ANDIE in Concert at The Metropole Guesthouse Upstairs for ‘Metro Social’ Katoomba Blue Mountains, SUN 4th March 2018

Fusion Boutique Presents ‘Metro Social’ with 
SHAUN KIRK
‘Howlin at the Moon’ Single Release Tour
+ Special Guest ANDIE
Live in Concert at the 1930’s Metropole Guesthouse.

Sunday 4th March 2018, 6pm. Doors Open 5pm.

Following the recent success of his Australian ‘Midnight in Motion’ Tour which saw award winning blues/soul troubadour Shaun Kirk selling out numerous headline shows across the country; the one man dynamo has announced a stack of new tour dates across Australia & New Zealand to launch his soon to be released new single ‘Howlin at the Moon’.

Kirk’s first release in over 3 years will come off the back of what the 29 year old describes as a “quarter-life crisis” ignited by a US Record Deal that fell through in questionable circumstances back in 2015. Determined to overcome his disappointment and grow from it, Kirk has since spent countless hours soul searching and honing his skills as a writer and musician inside his home studio on the outskirts of Melbourne; prevailing with a fresh new sound and groove to carry him into the next phase of his ever evolving career.

Recorded and co-produced with Nick Huggins (Jen Cloher, Fraser A Gorman, Skipping Girl Vinegar) at A Pocket Full of Stones Studios in the sleepy beachside town of Point Lonsdale, Victoria and co-written with ARIA Award Winner Joel Quatermain (Eskimo Joe) – ‘Howlin at the Moon’ is set to drop in early 2018.

Shaun Kirk has an energy that is unique, with a hybrid of musical styles that challenge genre classification, his shows are nothing short of an experience.”Diesel

“One of the most explo­sive solo acts this country has to offer.”Mixdown Magazine

“A truly hot new artist on the blues scene”Peter Noble (Director of Bluesfest)

“One of the finest blues voices this country has ever heard!”Buzz Magazine

“He’s a powerhouse”Sydney Morning Herald

FRED SMITH ‘Great’ CD Launch Tour at Kindlehill School Performance Space, Wentworth Falls, Blue Mountains, SAT 17th February 2018

FRED SMITH ‘Great’ CD Launch Tour

Concert and stories at the Kindlehill School Performance Space

Fred-Smith-cover250

Sat 17th February 2018
Venue: Kindlehill School Performance Space, Wentworth Falls, Blue Mountains NSW 2782.

Renowned Australian singer-songwriter Fred Smith’s new album ‘Great’ is a rollicking hayride through American history, politics and pathologies.

One of the few Australian songwriters who has both a US Marine Corps medal and a US merchant mariner’s license, Smith’s musical musings come with a lot of knowledge and experience. He spent four years in America, working cruise ships and touring the Eisenhower interstate system, and worked alongside American soldiers in southern Afghanistan. Now with the USA deeply divided, Fred Smith returns from the dust of Uruzgan to revisit his fascination for all things American.

The new double album features his brilliant balladry balanced with some raucous piss taking, and brings to the fore his reverence and comprehension of American music and mythology. Great is a remarkably eclectic double album collection of songs. The first disc includes 12 songs written and recorded in the classic American folk/country style – story songs, some funny, some sad, bringing to the fore Fred’s gift for melody and lyric, and his talent for inhabiting other people’s worlds.

On the second disc, Fred lets the band off the leash – drums, bass, electric guitars and horns. It’s a riot and a romp through songs and stories with American settings – mostly wry but sympathetic accounts of characters fictional and otherwise. The lead single, What Could Go Wrong, lampoons the contradictions in the Trump platform while celebrating the mix of ebullience and bald faced egotism that makes it impossible to take one’s eyes off Donald J Trump.

So what’s an Australian songwriter doing writing American stories? “Fair question” says Fred. “Like most of us, I grew up steeped in American culture: writers from O’Henry to Steinbeck, television from CHiPS to the A-Team, and 20th Century America produced musical stylings so sublime they have become universal mediums of musical expression.”  

In performance, Fred will be accompanied by Matt Nightingale on double bass, and one other eminent sideman.

“Great is a wonderful album…insightful, poetic and often personal…beautifully drawn vignettes of the human experience”… “outstanding and a must have. ‘Great’ is his best yet.” – CD review By Ian Phillips; psnews.com.au

“…one of our finest lyricists…he shows true mastery of crafting melodies and marrying them to the words without recourse to a shotgun. Add his natural wit, keen powers of observation, unassuming delivery and understated accompaniment and he effortlessly draws you into the world of each of these character-driven songs.” – John Shand, Sydney Morning Herald

PHILLIP HENRY & HANNAH MARTIN “EDGELARKS” (UK) in Concert at The Metropole Guesthouse Upstairs for ‘Metro Social’ Katoomba Blue Mountains, WED 17th January 2018

Nomadic Fish & Fusion Boutique Present ‘Metro Social’ with
PHILLIP HENRY & HANNAH MARTIN “EDGELARKS” (UK)
live in Concert at the 1930’s Metropole Guesthouse.

Wednesday 17th January 2018, 6:30pm. Doors Open 5:30pm.

Phillip Henry and Hannah Martin return to Australia in January 2018, performing at Woodford, Cygnet and Illawarra Folk Festivals, plus shows in Brisbane, Melbourne, Hobart, Sydney, and Katoomba.  Launching their new album under a new name: “EDGELARKS”.

Edgelarks fly in on the tailwind of BBC award winning duo Phillip Henry and Hannah Martin. The new band name comes with a new project, that takes the roots of their previous work, from the traditional musics of the British Isles to Indian classical slide guitar to the stomping roots party of Henry’s beatbox harmonica, and adds a strong stem of original writing, running wilder with each repeat play.

The duo began their musical journey together while living in a small caravan in the hills near Exmouth, Devon. They were playing in alt-roots outfit, traveling from festival to festival, tent to tent, wandering the highways, byways and old forgotten pathways of these islands; following in the footsteps of the ancient troubadour tradition, picking up tunes, songs and stories along the way. Spotted busking on the seafront at Sidmouth Folk Festival by champion of independent music Steve Knightley, they soon found themselves touring nationally, supporting the likes of Show of Hands and Seth Lakeman, and eventually winning the prestigious “Best Duo” award at the 2014 BBC Folk Awards.

EDGELARKS (both the name of the new album and to be the new name for the duo) is about transitions. Their most innovative work to date, bringing a palette of new textures, the album explores the idea of the liminal: places, people and times, the straddling of boundaries and thresholds. Crossroads and borderlines; travellers and refugees; dusk and dawn; the pause between an old way and a new. The idea that, despite often being places of marginalisation, these are also places of change – and therefore places of hope. That in the end we have far more in common than things that divide us, because we are all liminal: standing on the threshold of tomorrow, we are all just passing through.

The Lancashire/Devon duo made their first appearance in Australia in March/April 2015, performing to standing ovations at Port Fairy Folk Festival, Blue Mountains Music Festival and Fairbridge Folk Festival, as well as a string of house concerts, folk clubs and music venues.  They return in January 2018, launching their new album, some of which was inspired by their experiences on tour here, particularly in Tasmania.

Phillip Henry : Dobro, harmonica, guitars, vocals
Hannah Martin :  Violin, banjo, acoustic guitar, shutri box, vocals

JOE FILISKO & ERIC NODEN (Chicago, USA) in Concert at The Metropole Guesthouse Upstairs for ‘Metro Social’ Katoomba Blue Mountains, WED 10th January 2018

Nomadic Fish & Fusion Boutique Present ‘Metro Social’ with
JOE FILISKO & ERIC NODEN (Chicago, USA)
live in Concert at the 1930’s Metropole Guesthouse.

Wednesday 10th January 2018, 6:30pm. Doors Open 5:30pm.

The blues and roots music duo Joe Filisko and Eric Noden make an unforgettable impression. Their jaw-dropping virtuosity enables them to create more layers of sound and feeling than most full bands can summon, and both are high-energy, ultra-rhythmic performers. The collective result, in both their live shows and their recordings are charged, dramatic performances that are simultaneously powerful and sophisticatedly subtle.

Joe Filisko is a master of all the classic blues harmonica styles. As Dennis Gruenling of Blues Review says, “Joe Filisko could be the best prewar blues harmonica stylist in the world today.” Kim Wilson of The Fabulous Thunderbirds agrees: “Joe is one of the rare talents on the instrument of the harmonica. He is the guy that does what most players can’t even think about doing.” In addition, Jerry Portnoy who has played harmonica with Muddy Waters and Eric Clapton says, “Joe plays to the strengths and unique capabilities of the instrument and employs the full range of tonal colors, trills, flutters, chord rhythms, and other special effects that make his playing so expressive – all in service of the music. My admiration for his skill and musicianship is boundless.” Filisko is not only an accomplished performer, but a skilled harmonica craftsman as well.

Eric Noden is a master bluesman in his own right. Deeply rooted in the music of 20’s & 30’s blues pioneers, Eric Noden’s percussive guitar work, timeless song writing and well-traveled blues vocals have earned the respect of audiences, critics, and musicians worldwide. The Illinois Entertainer described Eric “As a spiritual heir to Chicago blues guitarists of the ’20s and ’30s like Tampa Red and Big Bill Broonzy. This multi-talented acoustic artist fills an important niche in the city’s mostly plugged-in blues scene.” Similarly, Eric’s mastery was recognised in Cadence: “Intent on mastering older styles while transporting them and us into a new century where the past is not forgotten” The Milwaukee Journal Sentinal adds, “The Chicago-based bluesman makes a National Resonator guitar absolutely wail.” Eric Noden sings, shouts and stomps while conjuring old spirits from the strings of his acoustic guitar. Varying his approach from song to song, Noden draws from a deep well of American music that fuels his high energy performances. His right hand thumb often lays down a driving bass figure that weaves around intricate melodic parts played with his fingers. This style, favoured by early bluesmen like Charley Patton, Reverend Gary Davis, and Blind Blake, is one that only a few contemporary bluesmen have mastered.

“Two marvellous musicians who have captured not only the sounds but the emotional spirit of some of the richest bloodlines of American music.” — Kim Field, author of Harmonicas, Harps, and Heavy Breathers

“Joe Filisko and Eric Noden make a thoroughly convincing case that this music is the real deal and their spirited performances make it sound both fresh and contemporary.” – Dirty Linen

“Eric and Joe are possessed by the spirits of Howlin Wolf, Sonny Terry, Robert Johnson, Johnny Woods, Sonny Boy Williamson, Gwen Foster and transported listeners back to the 1920’s Delta.. We love Eric and Joe. Please send them back.
 — Mickey Raphael, harmonica player for Willie Nelson

RACHEL BAIMAN BAND (Nashville) + Special Guests in Concert at The Metropole Guesthouse Upstairs for ‘Metro Social’ Katoomba Blue Mountains, SUN 7th January 2018

Fusion Boutique Presents ‘Metro Social’ with 
RACHEL BAIMAN BAND (Nashville)
+ Special Guests Piccolo Bear
Live in Concert at the 1930’s Metropole Guesthouse.

Sunday 7th January 2018, 6pm. Doors Open 5pm.

Americana Songwriter & Multi-Instrumentalist Rachel Baiman Tours Stunning New Record “Shame”

“A rootsy wake-up call” — Folk Alley

In many ways for Rachel, Shame, is an exploration of growing up female in America. Despite the serious subject matter, the overall tenor of the album remains light while the arrangements depart from her stripped-down work with progressive folk duo 10 String Symphony. Shame is lush and varied aided by the production and recording talents of Mandolin Orange’s Andrew Marlin. Musically inspired in equal parts by John Hartford and Courtney Barnett, Baiman’s influences are myriad, however years spent playing traditional music shine through in the album’s firmly rooted sound. Over the album’s ten tracks, Baiman commands attention with songwriting prowess and a depth of presence well beyond her 27 years.

Shame’s musical intensity is rooted within the current American political climate. “I wasn’t necessarily trying to write songs that would be easy to listen to,” Baiman says of the project. “I wanted to write about reality, in all of it’s terror and beauty.” From the title track about abortion politics, to love, sex, and abuse in relationships, to classism and inequality in her re-write of Andy Irvine’s working class anthem “Never Tire of the Road,” the album is ambitious in its scope, yet remains cohesive through Baiman’s personal perspective. In addition to the release of her new solo album, Baiman is the co-founder of a new political group called Folk Fights Back, a musician-led national organization that puts together benefit concerts and awareness events in response to the Trump administration.

As a teenager, Baiman found music to be a welcome escape from worrying about global politics. “I often found the constant discussion of seemingly unsolvable problems to be intense and overwhelming, and when I moved to Nashville to pursue music it felt like something positive, beautiful and productive that I could put into the world. Now that I’ve had some years to devote to music,”—Baiman has been recording and touring internationally for the past 4 years with 10 String Symphony, and has played fiddle for numerous other artists including Kacey Musgraves and Winnipeg folk band Oh My Darling—“I find it hard to escape from the values that I grew up with, and I feel compelled to write politically, to speak out about things that I’ve experienced or seen. Songwriting is a unique opportunity to do that, because it avails a more emotional vehicle for discussion. I love the political tradition of folk music, from Woody Guthrie to Tupac, and my hope is that this record adds another voice to it.”

“a goose-bump-instigating talent that reminded me of a young Gillian Welch or Joy Williams (Civil Wars).” – Z. N. Lupetin, The Bluegrass Situation

Molsky’s Mountain Drifters – Tradition steeped in possibility.

Bruce Molsky, “one of America’s premier fiddling talents” (Mother Jones) and Grammy-nominated artist on fiddle, banjo, guitar and song is delighted to present his new group already on tour in the US.
Bruce’s previous collaborations, with Anonymous 4, 1865 – Songs of Hope and Home from the American Civil War, was released to rave reviews and was on the top 10 Billboard charts for weeks.
He is also a special guest on legendary guitarist Mark Knopfler’s latest CD, Tracker and is working on his 3rd album with Andy Irvine & Donal Lunny’s supergroup Mozaik. You can also hear Bruce on BBC TV Transatlantic Sessions singing with Joan Osborne, Julie Fowlis and fiddling with Scottish legend Aly Bain and America’s great dobroist Jerry Douglas. Bruce is also Berklee College of Music’s Visiting Scholar in the American Roots Program.

Allison de Groot combines wide ranging virtuosity and passion for old-time music. With her own bands The Goodbye Girls and Oh My Darling, she has played Trafalgar Square in London, Newport Folk Festival, Stockholm Folk Festival, the Winnipeg Folk Festival, and Tønder Festival in Denmark. Like Bruce, Allison loves collaborating and bringing new ideas to old music, and brings a fresh approach to the trio.

Boston-based Stash Wyslouch is one of bluegrass’s great young genre-bending pioneers. He got his start as a guitarist in metal bands before immersing himself in roots music as a member of The Deadly Gentlemen. Stash is a veteran festival performer, having played at Grey Fox Bluegrass Festival, Rockygrass, Merlefest, Savannah Music Festival and others. Coming over from the punk-metal world, Stash brings great sensitivity and real emotion to the trio, plus some superb guitar and vocal chops.
