MARK WILKINSON
‘Spirit & Soul’ Australian Tour 2022
+ Special Guest MARK CROTTI
Live in Concert at the Baroque Room, Carrington Hotel

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

LIVE MUSIC

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


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

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

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

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

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

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

MartinFooteFB2300

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

Great Southern Nights in association with Fusion Boutique Present
MURRAY COOK’S SOUL MOVERS
+ Special Guest LINDA MIZZI
Live in Concert at the Baroque Room, Carrington Hotel

Saturday 2nd April 2022
Doors Open 7pm | Show Start 8pm

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

LINDA MITZI_0166 copy crop 300

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

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

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

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

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

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


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


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

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

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

“Daniel Champagne exudes a natural ease on stage, as he sings poignant lyrics and beautifully crafted melodies that invariably whisk the heart up with grand romanticism. Coupled with an exhilarating guitar talent that transcends mere acoustic playing to replicate a whole band, Champagne is just magical” – themusic.com.au

The story goes that Daniel Champagne first picked up his instrument of choice as a 5-year-old following in the footsteps of a musical father. He began writing songs at 12, training classically throughout his teens and performing wherever he could, honing his craft and developing the dynamite live show that he is renowned for today. At 18 he left school, turned professional and hit the road without looking back.
The following years have seen him release four studio albums, tour relentlessly around the globe with upwards of 300 shows per year, play some of the biggest festivals under the sun and share stages with the likes of Tommy Emmanuel, INXS, John Butler, Lucinda Williams, Ani DiFranco, Judy Collins and Rodrigo y Gabriela.

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

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

WHAT THE PRESS SAY…

“The word Prodigy seems to entirely fall short of this soft-spoken young man’s skills, he coaxes sounds and melodies out of his instrument that literally drop jaws.” – The Calgary Herald, CANADA

“Today I saw the future of Folk – Festival goers flocking in the thousands towards the main stage to witness a young musical phenomenon from Australia dish out an absolute show-stopper.” – The Firefly Column, USA

“Daniel Champagne is a crossroads. Fusing the strong traditions of Blues, Folk and other roots art with pop showmanship and admirable lyrical ability. I firmly believe that he will become an ambassador for roots music in a time where it desperately needs representation.” – The Indie Blender, CANADA

“reinventing roots guitar” – Rhythms Magazine, AUSTRALIA

“Watching Daniel Champagne perform is a once in a lifetime experience. He is a true prodigy that plays like no one else could possibly play unless they spent at least two lifetimes studying the art.” – BW Review, NEW ZEALAND

“Daniel Champagne exudes a natural ease on stage, as he sings poignant lyrics and beautifully crafted melodies that invariably whisk the heart up with grand romanticism. Coupled with an exhilarating guitar talent that transcends mere acoustic playing to replicate a whole band, Champagne is just magical” – Themusic.com.au, AUSTRALIA

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

*New Rescheduled Date – Sunday 5th December
EARLY SHOW: Doors Open 3pm
LATE SHOW: Doors Open 7pm

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Some of the clips include:
After The Sun (Berlin) – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hi444evDdlo
Look Too (Berlin) – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XmY1pWXMrBY

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

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


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

11am Roving Minstrel performance from SIMON WATTS on fiddle

SimonWattsCrop_E4A3s852web500

Simon Watts picked up the violin at the age of 6 and has never stopped playing! From his grass roots classical training, Simon then ventured into the world of Irish music, which became his passion for many years, and still is, undoubtedly triggered by his Irish ancestry. This also brought Simon into the area of stage shows and television. Simon’s next direction was to the world of Country & Bluegrass music and he was voted outstanding performer and instrumentalist three times at the Tamworth Country Music Festival. For some time Simon was part of the String Theories Trio creating their own style of music crossing over from country to classical – Irish to Blue Grass. Recently Simon has become involved in Swing and Jazz heavily influenced by such greats as Stephane Grappelli and Django Reinhardt and is a stalwart member of Le Hot Club de Katoomba Band. Simon’s sole desire is to make people happy through his music.
Catch Simon roving about the town on fiddle on the day from 11am-12pm.

RANDOM WEAVING WORKSHOP
With Branching Out Designs
Grace Tooth Dining Room MMNC

Session 1) 11:00am-1:00pm (120mins)
Session 2) 2:00-4:00pm (120mins)

WORKSHOP DESCRIPTION: Learn how to create your own randomly woven basket from dyed rattan cane. Participants will start by learning how to make a basic framework and then fill or extend the frame into a basket with a small handle. The workshop will also include information on harvesting and preparing natural materials.

ABOUT THE FACILITATORS: Branching Out is a collaboration between sister’s Jillian Culey and Carolyn Dance. It is devoted to handmade, fair trade and sustainable creations.
Jillian works predominantly with harvested fibres. She explores and experiments with traditional basketry techniques including twining, string making and ribbed work. For Jillian, weaving is an opportunity to explore the connection between mathematical patterns and nature and her woven pieces take their inspiration from that connection.
Carolyn’s home is nestled in the bush in the Blue Mountains. The surrounding flora and fauna inspires & informs her creative practice. Carolyn’s weaving is a meditative process where the purposeful, slow and rhythmic movements help to transform natural materials into functional baskets and unique pieces.

WORKSHOP DESCRIPTION:

Jill Day Flow Yoga Workshop Adults & Kids ages 8-17 yrs
In this practice the group will explore 3 principles of movement: letting the breath move you; grounding; and moving from your centre. The more we can move this way the body feels free to release tension and let in expression and joy.

Kid’s Yoga, ages 5-10 yrs
Sharing yoga with children is such a beautiful way to connect and share our connection to nature. Children will learn some tools for better focus and to deal with stress as the group plays. Participants will become different animals and parts of nature with our bodies.

Pre-school Yoga, ages 2-5 yrs
Introducing children to yoga at this age is fun and plants the seeds for awareness of breath and caring for your body. Story and animals will be used to invite the children to learn yoga poses. It is great to practice with your child.

ABOUT THE FACILITATOR: Jill Day has been teaching yoga since 2005. She teaches a flowing and fun class that explores the joy and freedom of linking breath and movement. Proper alignment helps us to free our bodies of unnecessary stress; to move with more efficiency and connection. Jill was certified to teach at Yoga Vidya Dham in Nasik, India and later at YogaWorks. She completed her YogaWorks Mentorship in Los Angeles before moving to Australia in 2009. Jill has been based in the Upper Mountains since 2009 and founded Living Day Yoga; sharing yoga with all ages.

IMOGEN CLARK + Special Guest MAIZY Live at the Baroque Room, Katoomba, Blue Mountains, FRI 26th March 2021

Niche Productions & Fusion Boutique Present
IMOGEN CLARK
+ Special Guest MAIZY
Live in Concert at the Baroque Room, Carrington Hotel

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

PRAISE FOR ‘THE MAKING OF ME’ EP:

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

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

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

Maizy

Blue Mountain’s based Maizy Coombes, is an endearing Violinist/Songwriter with a contemporary folk sound beneath wholesome lyricism.  Her approach to life is equal parts adorable, resourceful and sneaky, all of which is reflected brightly in her music. Using a loop pedal to support herself, this unique sound scape has the ability to bring out tears as you apply make-up or brush your teeth, yet still leave you feeling contemplative and joyous.
We first encountered Maizy’s gorgeous fiddle playing in “Lime and Steel”. Don’t miss this opportunity to see her subtle and solo.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

KingCurlyBWweb300

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

DeepseaLights_03WEB300

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

Captivating vocals, catchy melodies, live looping, spoken word; Deepsea Lights put a lot of focus on pulling a crowd in, and creating and holding a space. In 2019 the duo released their first full length album “The Space Between”. 
Not content living in just one genre, the duo dip their toes (and sometimes plunge their heads) into anything that inspires them. Lying somewhere between folk and trip-hop, their uncommon sound can move from rolling bass lines and ethereal vocal melodies, to beats composed entirely of household objects being struck with other household objects, to aggressive hip-hop rants, to soft rainy-day folk songs. Stitching their inspirations together like a sonic patchwork quilt, they’ll use whatever they can get their hands on in an effort to get things out of their heads and into the world.

LoloLovineOpenStudioWeb300

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

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

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

GaryDaleyJamesGreening300

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

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

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

Strictly limited tickets!

Davidson-Brothers2059e250

The Davidson Brothers are considered two of Australia’s most highly driven and well respected bluegrass musicians. Hamish and Lachie were raised in the rural Victorian town of Yinnar and began performing and recording in 1998. Since then, they’ve toured the United States, Europe, appeared on the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville and toured their band extensively across Australia.

Mostly self-taught, multi-Instrumentalists, both Hamish (fiddle, banjo, guitar, dobro, vocals) and Lachlan (mandolin, fiddle, guitar, vocals) became in-demand session musicians before they finished high school and as competitive teenagers they both went on to win National Bluegrass Championship titles.
Together, the Davidson Brothers have had top 10 Country Radio Singles, reached the ARIA Country Albums Chart and established the Australian Bluegrass Scholarship in 2011 to enhance a young culture and encourage acoustic musicians.

After eighteen consecutive years performing the Tamworth Country Music Festival, three Golden Guitar Awards later, Hamish and Lachie returned with their eighth studio release in April 2017, ‘All You Need Is Music’, which was recorded in Nashville and features 12 new original Bluegrass & Country tracks.

Recently, the boys were inducted by the Australian Country Music Hall of Fame into Tamworth’s prestigious Hands Of Fame monument and in 2016 they teamed up with legendary rocker Joe Camilleri and the Black Sorrows to collaborate in the studio and on stage, opening sold out shows in both Melbourne and regional Victoria.

The brothers have a uniquely Australian light hearted outlook on life which they use to showcase their musical ability to all unsuspecting audiences. Well known for their contemporary acoustic style the Davidson Brothers are destined to have a long-standing career on the Australian music scene.

The Davidson Brothers last performed in the Blue Mountains for the 2017 Blue Mountains Music Festival. Join them in a four piece format as they perform acoustically in this iconic space.

“All music should be this much fun.” – The Age

“The Davidson Brothers are talented fellas and awesome guys. I love what they do and I’ve really enjoyed the privilege of working with them. This album is a great one.” – Dan Sultan

“Two young blokes with all the energy and drive of their generation and an innate ability to transpose that energy to a younger audience.” – Capital News Magazine

SOLD OUT – TIJUANA CARTEL + Special Guests Sonori & Leotrix at Hotel Gearin, Katoomba, Blue Mountains, Fri 28th Oct 2016

TIJUANA CARTEL
+ Special Guests Sonori & Leotrix (DJ set)

Fri 28th Oct 2016
Venue: HOTEL GEARIN, 273 Great Western Hwy, Katoomba, Blue Mountains NSW 2780

Tijuana Cartel serve up a tasty mix of world music and club beats. These Gold-Coast based tour addicts are renowned for their live shows and tight production.

As the corner stone of Australia’s ‘east meets west’ electronic scene, Tijuana Cartel have a knack for blending layers of rich, intricate atmospheric soundscapes with laid back rhythms and luscious vocals to form an electronic beats tapestry that will cut through to your very soul.

Simply, there isn’t another band doing what they do. Having spent the last decade mixing in influences that haven’t been fused in the past, their penchant is for Middle Eastern scales, beats that get a floor moving and a general Psychedelic approach in song structure and ethos.
Not married to one genre or another, they happily change direction in search of new flavours and inspiration, whenever the moment takes them there.

SOLD OUT – DON MCGLASHAN (NZ) in Concert + Dinner at Paragon Café, Katoomba, Blue Mountains, Fri 20th May 2016

DON MCGLASHAN (NZ) in concert at the iconic Paragon.

CONCERT + CHAMPAGNE COCKTAIL + 3 COURSE GOURMET DINNER + TEA/COFFEE, BISCOTTI & CHOCOLATES!

Fri 20th May 2016
Strictly limited tickets!

Don McGlashan is recognised as one of New Zealand’s foremost songwriters, artists and performers, with five entries in APRA New Zealand’s “Top 100 Songs Of All Time”.
His career spans from the seminal post-pop-punk band Blam Blam Blam, to art experimentalists The Front Lawn, to platinum selling and internationally recognised band The Mutton Birds.
He has worked and performed with Crowded House, Paul Kelly, Johnny Marr, Wilco, Brian Ritchie and members of Radiohead and has scored a number of feature films, including Jane Campion’s “An Angel At My Table”.

McGlashan’s songs have been described by Q Magazine as ‘from the same cerebral power-pop mother lode as Big Star and early REM’.

He returns to Australia to unveil a rich new collection of highly personal songs (“Lucky Stars”) exploring love, regret and mortality, infused with optimism and joy.

McGlashan started the raw material for this new album at a little house on the Thames Estuary, then realised them in Neil Finn’s writing room at Roundhead Studio with guitarist Tom Rodwell. He produced them with former Mutton Birds bandmate David Long, (who also contributes some textural guitar, organ and banjo) and drummer Chris O’Connor. “I went away, imagining that I would write a rather solitary, introspective record, but what came out had a lot more joy and optimism than I expected.”

‘Lucky Stars’ contains many songs which are very personal reflections on McGlashan’s own life and thoughts: “This time, I don’t seem to be adopting characters to get an idea across… the ‘I’ is generally me in these songs”. And unlike previous solo or Mutton Birds albums, these songs enjoy a simpler and more direct sound, while spinning some very engaging yarns.

“…all the hallmarks of his singular style are in place — the spine-tingling way he moves from major to minor keys, his keenly observational eye, the thoughtfulness with which his songs are forged… No one else gets close to writing songs like that, and making them work”. – METRO MAG

Paragon’s Chef David Povelsen spent his first 4 years working at Solitary which saw the restaurant maintain it’s coveted position as a ‘one hatter’ in the Good Food Guide. In 2007 David realised a chef’s dream when Solitary attained 2 hats and was one of only 2 two-hatted restaurants in the state.

SOLD OUT – OLD MAN LUEDECKE (Canada) in Concert at Hotel Blue, Upstairs, “Live At The Attic” Katoomba, Blue Mountains – Sun 15th May 2016

OLD MAN LUEDECKE (Canada) in Concert

Hotel Blue, Upstairs “Live At The Attic” Katoomba, Blue Mountains

Sunday 15th May 2016, 6:30pm. Doors Open 6pm.

Accompanied by his trusty five-string banjo, foot stomps and hollers, his memorable melodies, poetic sense and easy charisma appeal to anyone searching for new growth from old roots.

Old Man Luedecke is the real thing, a modern-day people’s poet, travelling bard and balladeer.

From the music rich maritime province of Nova Scotia on the East coast of Canada, this two-time Juno Award-winning banjo songster is a rare type of musician. Rarer still is a singer-songwriter of such hopeful goodness.

In the tradition of solo banjo men and women of days gone by like Doc Boggs, Old Man Luedecke sings his songs accompanied only by his loving five string, foot stomps and the occasional yodel. This is a bizarre type of music Doc Boggs might have made if he’d studied poetry.
His jaunty frailing style banjo playing lends uplifting buoyancy to sometimes quite melancholy and highly unique lyrical ideas, and slots beautifully into a young market hungry for new growth from old roots.

His music has received wide acclaim across the genres in Canada, from Feist to Buck 65 who co-opted him to play banjo on one of his most famous early tracks ‘Indestructible Sam’.
His songs are melodic gems blending old time sensibilities with an unusual vision and poetic sense.
His music belies someone more than slightly ill at ease with modern life and he performs with a gentle and endearing charisma, stories littered with a canny oblique humour. He is a sly entertainer with almost a hint of contemporary vaudeville about him and he plays a mean claw hammer banjo clearly derivative of the old time and Appalachia. He’s a revelation!

SOLD OUT – THE ESCALATORS in Concert at The Metropole Guesthouse, Upstairs, “Metro Social” Katoomba, Blue Mountains – Sun 8th May 2016

Fusion Boutique Presents ‘Metro Social’ with THE ESCALATORS live in Concert at the 1930’s Metropole Guesthouse.

The Metropole, Upstairs “Metro Social” Cnr Gang Gang & Lurline Sts, Katoomba, Blue Mountains

Sunday 8th May 2016, 6:30pm. Doors Open 6pm.

A night of SWING, JAZZ & SOUL in a 1930’s Boutique Lounge with the Escalators for their ‘FROM THE HIP’ Album Launch tour.

The Escalators tip their fedoras to the sophistication of Swing,
the grooves of Detroit,
the rhythmic pulse of Jamaica,
& the funk of New Orleans.

Begin with The Escalators Quartet showcasing their CD releases: a groovy blend of original songwriting & unique arrangements of classic jazz standards. In the 2nd set, a 6-piece band complete with Swinging Horns will take the night away with vintage-inspired sounds perfect for old school swing & rock’n’roll dancing.

The Escalators’ sound is a musical crossroads of creativity & inspiration that gathers fans from all points of the compass: blues lovers, jazz cats, reggae devotees, funk/soul-brothers & sisters.

The gorgeous tone of Jenny Blunden’s voice embraces you & steals your heart. Setting the scene is The Escalators’ instrumental tapestry, all parts woven with subtlety & purpose. Lachlan Mackenzie’s guitar, all harmony & texture, is draped over a rhythmic framework rich in interplay between Bradley Parson’s upright bass & the drum kit captained by Hayden Moore.
When they are joined by the Swinging Horns of David Reglar & David Cunningham, it’s time tio push the tables back & dance.

The Escalators are on the road in 2016 with a new CD “From The Hip”.
‘From The Hip’ (2016) boasts 5 original compositions that show this outfit draws on a deep well of creativity, fed by their swing, soul & reggae roots. They also honour the originators on two jazz standards.
The lead single ‘Open Fire’ is currently receiving airplay across the country & reached #1 on the Triple J Unearthed ‘Roots’ Chart.
‘From The Hip’ is a major leap forward in song writing & defining the band’s sound, recorded with a ‘live-in-the-studio’ philosophy on the South Coast & in the hills behind Byron Bay.

Debut release ‘Felix’ (2014) set a course for the band by acknowledging their influences: Classic songs from the ‘30s to the ‘60s infused with fresh flavours from all corners of their record collection.
The release of ‘Felix’ saw the band tour along the East Coast to perform at the Noosa Jazz Festival in 2015, and have their version of ‘The Girl From Ipanema’ make ‘The Best of 2015’ (Soulscope, Northside Radio).

‘From The Hip’ is currently touring the ACT & South-East NSW, with invitations to perform in Melbourne, Regional Victoria, Regional NSW, and return to Queensland for a second tour later in the year.

For this performance they will be joined by ‘The Swinging Horns’ David Reglar (tenor sax) and David Cunningham (trumpet).
Set 1 – Quartet showcasing tracks from their CD releases.
Set 2 – The Escalators ‘Swing & Soul Revue’ featuring a 6-piece band playing great dance music from the 30s to the 60s.

KRISTIN HERSH (USA) in Concert + Dinner at Paragon Café, Katoomba, Blue Mountains, Fri 22nd April 2016

KRISTIN HERSH (USA) in concert at the iconic Paragon.

CONCERT + CHAMPAGNE COCKTAIL + 3 COURSE GOURMET DINNER + TEA/COFFEE, BISCOTTI & CHOCOLATES!

Fri 22nd April 2016
Strictly limited tickets!

Kristin Hersh is a founding member of the band Throwing Muses and 50 Foot Wave as well as having had an extensive and influential solo career.

Kristin Hersh returns to Australia, her home away from home, to perform material from across her catalogue interspersed with readings from her latest book  “Don’t Suck, Don’t Die”.

“Don’t Suck, Don’t Die – Giving Up Vic Chesnutt” is a memoir of her good friend, US singer/songwriter Vic Chesnutt who sadly took his own life in 2009.
“Friend, asshole, angel, mutant,” is the way that Kristin describes Chesnutt, a quadriplegic who could play only simple chords on his guitar but nevertheless recorded seventeen critically acclaimed albums and was named among the top five best living songwriters by NPR before his death. Hersh chronicles her friendship with Chesnutt in a book that shares insights into both their mutual bond and the pain and creativity that haunted Chesnutt. Hersh offers the most personal, empathetic look at the creative genius and often-tormented life of Chesnutt that is ever likely to be written.

Her memoir “Rat Girl” was widely praised from the New York Times to Rolling Stone which named it one of the top ten rock memoirs ever written.

Praise for “Don’t Suck, Don’t Die”
“Not only one of the best books this year, it’s one of the most beautiful rock memoirs ever written.” – Michael Shaub, NPR’s Best Books of 2015
“A Stunning, difficult and beautiful chronicle. The true Vic comes alive.” – Michael Stipe (REM)
“(Hersh’s) observations… always ring with a harsh lyrical truth….an eloquent, breathtaking testament.” – Pitchfork
“A raw, poetic memoir….a last, wonderful example of Chesnutt at his most charismatically mischievous.” – The Guardian
“It paints a more honest, insightful picture of the late singer-songwriter than any biography could…Beautifully, poetically told.” – MOJO
“The book’s great sadness is matched by the skill and vitality of Hersh’s writing; it will make treasured and troubled reading for fans of Chesnutt and the author alike.” – Kirkus Reviews

THE EAST POINTERS (Canada) + THE MAE TRIO (Melbourne) at Hotel Gearin, Katoomba, Blue Mountains, Fri 8th April 2016

THE EAST POINTERS (Canada)
+ THE MAE TRIO (Melbourne)

Fri 8th April 2016
Venue: HOTEL GEARIN, 273 Great Western Hwy, Katoomba, Blue Mountains NSW 2780

Ontario guitarist Jake Charron and 7th generation Prince Edward Island musicians Tim (fiddle) and Koady Chaisson (banjo) make traditional music seem ridiculously hip.

An adrenalised, roof-rattling, performance monster, the trio’s excellent new release Secret Victory, penned mostly in Australia in early 2015, features the beautiful songs, free-wheeling, feisty instrumental jigs, stomps and reels and heart-breaking harmonies that have made them torchbearers for a new wave in traditional music.

Even before releasing Secret Victory, The East Pointers knew they were onto something, having accepted the 2015 Music P.E.I. New Artist of the Year, and Roots Traditional Recording of the Year awards. They were also nominated for Traditional Instrumental Recording of the Year at the 2015 East Coast Music Awards.

For a band barely together 18 months, they are in demand live, returning to the UK and Australia in late 2015 for a run of festival dates including Woodford Folk Festival, Cygnet, Illawarra, Cobargo, Nannup, Port Fairy and the National and then back again in early 2016 after extensive touring in Canada.

Timber and Steel included ‘Secret Victory’ in their Top 25 Albums of 2015!

Multi-award-winning, Melbourne-based contemporary folk trio, The Mae Trio perform insightful original songs with superb 3 part vocal harmonies.

It has been a magical two years since The Mae Trio released their award-winning debut album Housewarming and hit international stages from Celtic Connections (Glasgow) to Cambridge Folk Festival and Americana Festival (Nashville), not to mention national Australian tours where they won the hearts of critics and fans alike. Winners of the Maton Class Act Award and the National Film & Sound Archive Award for Folk Recording of the Year, The Mae Trio is renowned for their sophisticated instrumentation and stellar three-part harmonies.
Their latest EP ‘September’ features an array of originals and new interpretations of some of the songs that have helped shape the band’s musical lives so far.

Join Anita Hillman (cello, bass and vocals), Maggie Rigby (banjo, ukulele, guitar, marimba and vocals) and Elsie Rigby (violin, ukulele and vocals) for an evening of contemporary folk that will leave you breathless.

It is a rare treat to experience such unique instrumentation and spine-tingling harmonies, and The Mae Trio promises bucket loads of both.

“a delightful Australian girl group whom it is hard to fault…theirs is an innocent, clear-skinned sound that’s long on banjo, fiddle and ukulele” – Metro (Glasgow)

“The Mae Trio has made a meteoric mark on the national acoustic music scene” – Rhythms

“they belied their apparent youth with some fine songs and dry wit” – Americana UK

“The Mae Trio were easily the break-out act at Folk Alliance” – The Bluegrass Situation

“A favourite on the Aussie folk scene… definitely a trio to keep an eye and an ear (or two) out for” – Songlines UK

“spine-tingling harmonies” – The Scotsman

SCOTT COOK (Canada) in Concert at Hotel Blue, Upstairs, “Live At The Attic” Katoomba, Blue Mountains, SUN 6th March 2016

SCOTT COOK (Canada) in Concert
+ Special Guests Chris Gillespie and Cameron James Henderson

Hotel Blue, Upstairs “Live At The Attic” Katoomba, Blue Mountains

Sunday 6th March 2016, 6:30pm. Doors Open 6pm.

A roots balladeer with a rare personal warmth, Edmonton’s Scott Cook has managed to distil the stories collected over a decade of near-incessant touring across Canada, the USA, Europe, Asia, and Australia into straight-talking, keenly observant verse.

His 2013 release, One More Time Around, was nominated for a Canadian Folk Music Award, and its opening track ‘Pass It Along’ won the Folk and Acoustic category in the 2013 UK Songwriting Contest, with UK magazine Maverick Country naming him “one of Canada’s most inspiring and imaginative storytellers”.
He released his fifth DIY album, ‘Go Long’, in the summer of 2015, embarking on another around-the-world tour in support of it.
All the hard miles notwithstanding, he still believes that songs can change your life, and your life can change the world.

This will be Scott’s third Australian tour and he is here to perform at Woodford Folk Festival along with a number of other summer festivals.

“One of Canada’s most inspiring and imaginative storytellers… beautifully written lyrics, intricate chordal patterns and a refreshing plain-spoken vocal clarity… there isn’t a bad song on here. 4 stars.” – Emily Saxton, Maverick Country, UK

“Scott Cook has distilled his travels down into songs powered by a sharp eye for imagery, a healthy dose of humanity, and that unforgettable voice, that at the same time intones the rigors of the road and the most comfortable couch you have ever slept on.” – David Francey, 3x Juno-winning songwriter

“Lyrically I think he’s up there with the likes of Prine or Smither as well as contemporaries like Adam Carroll and (fellow Canadian) Old Man Luedecke… It has the feeling of someone retelling their favourite stories… Remember that Prine fella I was talking about? Yeah, that one.” – No Depression

“As hard-working a DIY songwriter as any in the game… A Scott Cook song contains the extra work done by a carpenter who cares. Work the carpenter doesn’t have to do. Work only other carpenters will likely even notice… One of the best songwriters this country has. A working artist who’s taken enormous risks in order to make something which offers strength to anyone who takes the time to listen… I believe that over the years this album will prove to be a benchmark in Canadian folk music, as well as a signpost pointing the way for younger artists. I believe that young songwriters will write better songs because of it.” – Corin Raymond, Raymond Unrushed

“4 stars. Rich in plainspoken, poetic expression… Unapologetically honest words and music crafted from a keen observer’s perspective” – Donald Teplyske, Lonesome Road Review

“There’s nothing flash about Canada’s Cook. He sings his heart and soul, and in doing so lets light flood into your own… He has a good eye for imagery, a gentle human touch, a wry sense of humour, a whole lot of integrity, a warm, rugged voice and a bunch of memorable lines… Truly one of Woody Guthrie’s children.” – David Burke, R2 Magazine, UK

Guests will be in for a real treat with a performance from local Australian Folk artist Chris Gillespie from 5-6:15pm in the lounge as well!

Chris Gillespie is an independent artist from the Blue Mountains of NSW. His songs are beautiful, bursting with observational yearning. “A fingerpickin’, harmonica playing troubadour…

“Sydney’s answer to Bob Dylan” (Dave Regos – FBi Radio). Gillespie is renowned by his audience and peers for his songwriting craft, especially his lyrics – “Chris Gillespie is definitely one of those timeless songsmiths” – Joe Gould, (The Crooked Fiddle Band).

You can expect beautiful instrumentation coupled with meaningful and thought provoking words and “…harmonies [that] are downright gorgeous” (Tom Ballard Triple J).

The music is very Australian, highly original and delivered with refreshing honesty and integrity.
Chris Gillespie enjoyed a very busy and abundantly successful 2012 with the release of his debut album ‘Unnatural Light’. The title track spent months in the top 20 of the Triple J Unearthed charts. The song was used as the soundtrack to a short film, which was aired on Channel 9. Chris also performed live on Foxtel and was the opening act for Triple J favourite and Australian Idol finalist Lisa Mitchell.
“It’s difficult for any independent acoustic artist to make a name for themselves in the shadow of the likes of Josh Pyke and John Butler. Yet somehow Chris Gillespie pulls this off with an earthy, unadorned and folksy panache… [He] creates an intoxicatingly addictive blend of country-infused folk rock that is at once familiar and unique” (Peter Walsh Rave Magazine, Brisbane).

Chris will be accompanied by Cameron James Henderson (on bass)
Cameron is an original blues/folk songwriter/guitar player from Sydney. His dynamic tunes have deep respect for the old, yet his lyrics and arrangements are fresh and raw.
Cameron refined his sound playing sideman in various bands for years as well as studying classical guitar and doing composing and session work in professional orchestras, theatre and television. Cameron is also the guitar player from Dubious Blues Trio and Vanessa Raspa and the Zombie Cats.

IRISH MYTHEN in Concert + Dinner at Paragon Café, Katoomba, Blue Mountains, Sat 23rd Jan 2016

IRISH MYTHEN (Touring from Canada / Ireland) in concert at the iconic Paragon.

CONCERT + CHAMPAGNE COCKTAIL + 3 COURSE GOURMET DINNER + TEA/COFFEE, BISCOTTI & CHOCOLATES!

Sat 23rd Jan 2016
Strictly limited tickets!

Irish Mythen’s music is so powerful and beautiful you can’t help being instantly engaged.

Irish is a true entertainer who is known for her gripping live shows which are a thing of wild emotion as she pours heart and soul into every word she sings. She has a way of delivering her songs that leave you in awe of her vocal talent and remembering the show, the songs and the performer long after you’ve walked away.
She is the storyteller who will grasp your attention and who will bring you on an incredible and emotional journey, as well as the comedian with a joie de vivre who’ll have you laughing from the very beginning until long after the end of her show.

Irish Mythen, award winning singer, songwriter and recording artist was born and raised in County Wexford Ireland. She has travelled the globe — playing in Europe, Australia, the Middle East and the UK. During her travels she has worked with a host of world-renowned artists like Tom Paxton, The Dubliners and The Pogues. She has shared stages with Emmylou Harris, Gordon Lightfoot, and Peter Yarrow, to name but a few.

Since her immigration to Canada in 2008 Irish has been honoured to create music and memories with Gordie Sampson, Joel Plaskett, Ron Hynes, Matt Andersen, Bruce Guthro and Dave Gunning. She has become an admired and respected artist on the Canadian scene.

Irish has proudly produced two EPs — Appreciate (2004) and Fallen Me (2006), as well as three full-length releases to her name — Sweet Necessity (2008), Open Here (2011) and Irish Mythen (2014). Open Here was nominated for the 2012 East Coast Music Awards (ECMA) Roots Traditional Recording of the Year. Her latest, self-titled album won her an ECMA in the same category in April 2015.

This vocal powerhouse will blow you away! You’ve heard the buzz, now hear the artist!

“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

“After seeing Irish perform live, you are left with a sense of wanting more. This girl has often been called the female version of ME.” –  Matt Andersen

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

New Years Eve with CLAUDE HAY and More at Hotel Gearin, Katoomba, Blue Mountains, THUR 31st Dec 2015

New Years Eve with CLAUDE HAY and More at Hotel Gearin

Thur 31st Dec 2015
Venue: HOTEL GEARIN
273 Great Western Hwy, Katoomba
Blue Mountains NSW 2780.

Something exceptionally cool to experience this New Years Eve in the Blue Mountains!
Come join us for a huge night of quality original live Blues/Roots/Rock/Hillbilly Disco music with Claude Hay and friends to welcome in the New Year.
Then finish the night off with the super chilled beats and tunes from Papa Richie’s ‘Echo Point Sound System’

Hailing from the Blue Mountains near Sydney, award winning Australian solo artist Claude Hay blends slide guitar, bass and drums to create music that invokes the best of stomping traditional blues, hard rock and booty-shaking funk, all delivered with chops to burn and a vocal range to match. Claude is perhaps the world’s ultimate Do-It-Yourself musician – forging his live sound on the back of looping technology which allows him to create a band vibe without the band. This approach has seen this fiercely independent artist build an audience for his music globally with the release of three award-winning home-made albums.

Taking DIY a step further than most, Claude has built all his own equipment: there’s ‘Betty’, his double-necked guitar which he made out of a kitchen bench top; there’s ‘Stella’, his new ‘Cigar Box’ guitar which started its life as a six dollar baking tin. He’s also built his own dome house and studio from the ground up, and pimped out his tour van with a shower and bar (a great move when you consider how much time he spends on the road).

Claude Hay took out the Best Male Vocalist category at the 2013 Australia Blues Music Chain Awards adding to the swag of awards he received for his second album, 2010’s ‘Deep Fried Satisfied’. In the same week, Claude Hay’s song ‘Stone Face’ successfully made the semi-finals in the Blues category at the International Songwriters Competition, which is judged by industry heavy weights such as Bruce Iglauer (CEO, Alligator Records), Tom Waits, Derek Trucks and Susan Tedeschi and other internationally recognised producers and label A&R executives.

Claude Hay, long established as pretty much the world’s best ‘One Man Band’
We are delighted that Claude is available to do a Mountains home show this year. Come on out to experience one of The Mountains’ favourite musical sons joined by some other highly enjoyable Mountains talent.

www.claudehay.com.au

Blue Love Revue and their amped up, fuzz guitar, cigar throated howling songs about booze and madness will make you wish you had bourbon in your hand. And if you do, then it’s likely you’ll be howling right along with them.

The sound created from Andrew Rignold’s handmade, cigar-box guitar is raw but rich enough to drive a low dirty blues riff, Joe Breen’s vocals are as healing as the cut up hands of a carpenter, scratched up along some winding back road. Holding this madness together is Brad Kimber’s impeccable thumping drumming. If the Blue Mountains had a swamp where folk could brew moonshine and twang their geetars then that would be where these guys are from.

www.facebook.com/blueloverevue
https://soundcloud.com/blue-love-revue

Opening up the night will be Ben Connor.
Raised in the kingdoms of Dylan, Waits and Cohen, Ben has slowly developed his own unique style. And after a gigging hiatus that saw him traipsing the globe as a freelance travel writer, he has a fresh swag of melody-blessed ruminations on Zen, mythology and travel to share.

www.benconnormusic.com

Finishing up the evening and ushering you in to an uber cool 2016 will be Papa Richie with the super chilled reggae & soul beats and tunes that are “Echo Point Sound System”

MITCH GRAINGER in Concert at Hotel Blue, Upstairs “Live At The Attic” Katoomba, Blue Mountains, Sun 22nd Nov 2015

MITCH GRAINGER in Concert

Hotel Blue, Upstairs “Live At The Attic” Katoomba, Blue Mountains

Sunday 22nd November 2015, 6:30pm. Doors Open 6pm.

US-Based world-renowned blues harmonica player & Australian roots-music troubadour previously of The Beefs, Bondi Cigars & Papa Lips. Mitch returns to Australia in 2015, on tour to follow up his award winning album ‘The Blues’.

A master of the blues harp, singer and guitarist, Grainger cut his teeth with Harry Vanda, Alex Lloyd, Bondi Cigars and Papa Lips before re-locating stateside, where he plays harp on sessions from LA to Nashville. In this hi-tech world Mitch Grainger is now collaborating with artists from Hollywood to Botswana, while teaching people from all walks of life around the globe how to play their first ever note on the blues harp, though his wildly successful youtube channel.

After taking up the harmonica at age 14 inspired by a dream, Mitch was introduced to Little Walter and within 6 months was performing Blues ‘n’ Roots music 3 nights a week across Inner Sydney on both the Guitar and Harmonica in THE BEEFS with Australian soon to be pop star ALEX LLOYD. After THE BEEFS disbanded (despite much industry attention) Mitch was recruited by the BONDI CIGARS in 1992 and put to work playing hard hitting blues guitar and harmonica across the length and breadth of Australia’s states and territories, from Broome to Launceston. This was a formative period in Mitch’s life, what he calls his “university degree in rock n roll”. He lived almost constantly on the road, in a new town, playing in front of a new crowd.

In 1994 after 2 years and one Album (After Closing Time), Mitch left the BONDI CIGARS and formed PAPA LIPS with his sister KARA GRAINGER, DECLAN KELLY, ROWAN LANE, DANNY GUERRERO and CLAYTON DOLEY. Together they created a sensation “Greater than when Lenny Cravitz re-discovered the wah wah pedal” (Michael Smith, Drum Media, Sydney). The band recorded “Harmony” (1996) and “High Time Now” (1998), toured constantly, and played Australia’s premier music festivals, including WOODFORD and BYRON BAY BLUES & ROOTS FESTIVAL numerous times.

In 2001 at the request of Atlantic, Epic, Sony and BMG records, Mitch and Kara Grainger visited New York to play showcases. Their visit coincided with the tragic September 11 terrorist attack and brought on a deep reflective period of song-writing for both Mitch and his sister, stretching over 5 years and leading them in different musical directions.
Upon hearing Mitch Grainger’s compositions written during this period, legendary Australian producer, HARRY VANDA (Vanda/Young) encouraged Mitch to record his own debut solo album “LOVE & DEMONS”, which was released in 2006.

Since his 2006 solo debut Mitch Grainger’s voice and music has been heard in movie cinemas across Japan, America & Europe in the “DECEMBER BOYS” movie opening scene, in American and Australian NATIONAL TV SHOWS such as NASHVILLE, KILLER WOMEN, RAKE, and THE TIME OF OUR LIVES. He has recorded countless sessions, written songs, and produced music with artists such as ROSA PULLMAN, PAPA LIPS, KARA GRAINGER, RICK PRICE, THE WRIGHTS, JOHN PAUL YOUNG and acclaimed Australian thespian, JACK THOMPSON.
Forward to today and Mitch Grainger has gained an international reputation and audience for his harmonica skills. Type “Harmonica Lessons” into YouTube, and Mitch’s video is the first one on the list.

In this hi-tech world Mitch Grainger is now collaborating with artists from Hollywood, to Botswana, while teaching people from all walks of life around the globe how to play their first ever note on the blues harp.And now, in 2015, importantly ‘The Blues’ marks a signpost of artistic and personal growth that brings Mitch out of a recording hiatus and into the spotlight.

MARGRET ROADKNIGHT in Acoustic Concert

Hotel Blue, Upstairs “Live At The Attic” Katoomba, Blue Mountains

Thursday 24th September 2015, 6:30pm. Doors Open 6pm.

Margret RoadKnight is Australia’s finest interpretive singer.

A unique and passionate artist, renowned for her powerful vocals and wide-ranging roots-based repertoire with lyrics full of wit and wisdom, Margret RoadKnight survives and thrives outside the mainstream music scene with flair and soul.

Five decades into her career, she continues to tour extensively, singing riveting if under-exposed songs, either a-cappella or with her guitar and African thumb piano, solo or with accompanying musicians, always interspersed with informative and amusing anecdotes (and yes, she still reprises her fondly remembered mid-’70s Australiana hit “Girls In Our Town”).

Margret has recorded ten solo albums and been featured on thirty one others.
She has sung blues, jazz, gospel, folk, comedy, and social commentary songs in concert halls and cathedrals, clubs and campuses, from Broome to Hobart, Beijing to Memphis, Paris to Auckland, Edinburgh to Tel Aviv, New York to Seoul, Amsterdam to Dublin, New Orleans to London, Vancouver to Nuku’alofa.

May 12th, 2013 marked the commencement of Margret RoadKnight’s Golden Jubilee (celebrating 50 years of professional performance) and concluded in April 2014 with her Lifetime Achievement Award from the National Folk Festival.

“…as much as for her impressive voice and choice of songs, RoadKnight is delightful because she sheds so much fresh light on the nature of the world and its people”Oakland Tribune, San Francisco

“Margret RoadKnight’s success depends on the original way she presents other people’s material. She is alive, warm, charming, extremely funny and a stunning musician”Melbourne Voice

“…virtually a walking, talking, singing folk festival in her own right – 6ft 4ins of musical history with a South Pacific flavor”Globe and Mail Canada

“…magnetic and powerful”Financial Times London

“…a magnificent voice and a vast, and often funny, repertoire”National Times

“…RoadKnight’s driving, pounding, powerful alto burns smoulderingly”The Australian

“…RoadKnight’s enduring presence on the folk scene is the result of a truly remarkable voice combined with the most mature and sophisticated sense of humour in the business… a unique Australian talent”Sydney Morning Herald

“…a vastly underestimated and too seldom seen singer… after all these years she still has the power to knock you back in your seat”Rhythms

Hinterlandt has entered into a new phase. Previously it was Jochen Gutsch’s solo project that has recently transformed it into an acoustic ensemble. Since this change the music has become much more sophisticated. The ensemble is performing original material composed by Jochen and brought to life by the players with their own artistic personalities.

THE MAE TRIO at Hotel Blue, Upstairs “Live At The Attic” Katoomba, Blue Mountains, Fri 11th Sept 2015

THE MAE TRIO (Melbourne)
SEPTEMBER EP LAUNCH TOUR

Special Guest Francesca Sidoti

Hotel Blue, Upstairs “Live At The Attic” Katoomba, Blue Mountains

Friday 11th September 2015, 6:30pm. Doors Open 6pm.

Multi-award-winning, Melbourne-based contemporary folk trio. Performing insightful original songs with superb 3 part vocal harmonies.

It has been a magical two years since The Mae Trio released their award-winning debut album Housewarming and hit international stages from Celtic Connections (Glasgow) to Cambridge Folk Festival and Americana Festival (Nashville), not to mention national Australian tours where they won the hearts of critics and fans alike. Winners of the Maton Class Act Award and the National Film & Sound Archive Award for Folk Recording of the Year, The Mae Trio is renowned for their sophisticated instrumentation and stellar three-part harmonies. The trio return to launch the September EP featuring an array of originals and new interpretations of some of the songs that have helped shape the band’s musical lives so far.

Join Anita Hillman (cello, bass and vocals), Maggie Rigby (banjo, ukuleles, guitar, marimba and vocals) and Elsie Rigby (violin, ukulele and vocals) for an evening of contemporary folk that will leave you breathless.

It is a rare treat to experience such unique instrumentation and spine-tingling harmonies, and The Mae Trio promises bucket loads of both.

“a delightful Australian girl group whom it is hard to fault…theirs is an innocent, clear-skinned sound that’s long on banjo, fiddle and ukulele”  – Metro (Glasgow)

“The Mae Trio has made a meteoric mark on the national acoustic music scene”Rhythms

“they belied their apparent youth with some fine songs and dry wit”  – Americana UK

“The Mae Trio were easily the break-out act at Folk Alliance”  – The Bluegrass Situation

“A favourite on the Aussie folk scene… definitely a trio to keep an eye and an ear (or two) out for”  – Songlines UK

spine-tingling harmonies” The Scotsman

Special guest for the evening will be local artist Francesca Sidoti.
Raised on folk, country and blues (a mix designed to handicap her in the playground), Francesca has a live act that gets talked about.
Playing accordion-addicted retro pop, her debut album ‘Bright City Light Fool’ was released in August 2010, and has since had two songs shortlisted in the ASA Songwriting Awards and #3 ranking on the folk and pop charts of AMRAP.

JETTY ROAD ‘Hearts On Fire’ Album Launch Tour at Hotel Gearin, Katoomba, Blue Mountains, Sat 30th May 2015

JETTY ROAD ‘Hearts On Fire’ Album Launch Tour at Hotel Gearin, Katoomba, Blue Mountains
+ Special Guest – Tara Favell

Sat 30th May 2015
HOTEL GEARIN
Venue: HOTEL GEARIN
273 Great Western Hwy, Katoomba
Blue Mountains NSW 2780.

Country music stars ‘Jetty Road’ are back with a new story to tell. The band has returned with an album full of musical diversity. Aptly named Hearts On Fire, the album represents an evolution for the band and their distinctive sound!

Travelling half way across the globe to Canada to record again with producer Paul Shatto (Far Away Places) at the helm, the new album is a reflection of the emotional journey over the past few years.

“There are songs that speak of love, joy, betrayal, heartbreak, hope and everything in between, a little bit like riding a rollercoaster. Whether that’s in a lyric, a melody or simply the way a song makes you feel.” Lee Bowman – Guitar and Vocals.

January 2015 marked their 10-year anniversary together, a milestone rarely seen within music circles today. It’s easy to see the progression from their humble beginnings at Australia’s Tamworth Country Music Festival in 2005 to where they are today.

The past years have been an extraordinary journey for the band. Winning their second Golden Guitar (CMAA) Award for Best Group or Duo in 2012 at the 40th Country Music Awards of Australia has established twin sisters Lee & Paula Bowman, and Julian Sammut, as some of Australia’s hottest and brightest stars.

The release of their fourth album ‘Far Away Places’ in May 2011 saw the band garner some serious attention from both fans and critics alike with the album spending an amazing 41 weeks on the ARIA Australian Country Album Chart.

The band have had many Top 30 hits on Australian country radio and the Country Music Channel, but more impressively they’ve hit the coveted No.1 position no less than four times on country radio (I’m A Dreamer #1 x 7 weeks / Million Miles #1 x 6 weeks / Serves You Right #1 x 4 weeks / Sweet Goodbye #1 x 3 weeks) and six times on Country Music Channel (City Lights, Million Miles, World Keeps Turning, Serves You Right, I’m A Dreamer and Sweet Goodbye).

Along with strong chart success, Jetty Road have won many awards including two CMAA Awards (Golden Guitar) at the 38th and 40th CMAA Country Music Awards of Australia for Best Group / Duo. They have also been honoured with Album of the Year and Single of the Year nominations. Their other key country music accolades also include Australian Independent Artist of the Year, Australian Independent Album of the Year, Australian Independent Group/Duo of the Year, numerous Australian Country Music People’s Choice Awards, the National Music Oz Award for Best Country Act and the major Professional Development Award ($20,000) AIADA Award in recognition of excellence in Australian Independent Country Music. Earning themselves a 2012 APRA Music Award nomination for Country Work of the Year is further testament of their achievements in the Australian music industry. More recently their song I’m A Dreamer achieved finalist status in the International Song Competition (Country Section), receiving an ‘Honourable Mention’.

Hearts On Fire is released in May 2015 and Melbourne act Jetty Road will be touring from May through to December 2015.

Earnest and honest, singer-songwriter Tara Favell is bringing her country-pop cross over style to the Australian musical landscape, writing songs from the heart and delivering them with passion to her ever-growing fan base. A musical child by nature, Favell was always singing and acting on stage and by age 13, she had mastered the piano, trumpet and guitar.

Drawing musical inspiration from a variety of sources, British band McFly provided the most impact in Tara’s musical education. “As soon as I heard their music I instantly wanted to learn guitar and as soon as I picked up the guitar, I wouldn’t put it down.” Once she had a handle on the guitar, this was the beginning of Tara as a songwriter.

Her debut single ‘Anything For You’ was released in 2011 and gained airplay on a national level. The accompanying music video was picked up by Channel 10’s Landed Music program. ‘Anything For You’ enabled Tara to forge a strong connection with her audience through the honest and personal content of her songs. Tara’s second single ‘The Chase’ received national airplay on 2day FM & local radio stations around the country.

As a songwriter, Tara finds her inspiration from her life, writing a lot on the topics of love. Love being such a complicated subject and every relationship, crush and breakup starting and ending so differently, this provides her with what she deems as endless amounts of experience to write about. “Being 100% honest in a song could never be a bad thing.” This shines through in her songs, allowing people to relate to her music in their own ways.
Tara’s unforgettable live performance enabled her to secure a solid touring itinerary. This year alone she has performed at the Sydney Royal Easter Show, Camden Country Spectacular Show where she shared the stage and opened for Luke O’Shea, Kate Cook, Kaylee Bell & Jared Porter, Light The Night event for the Leukemia Foundation at Bondi Beach, Westpoint Shopping Centre and much more.
Recently Tara was picked up by Ryan Seacrest Online in America and her cover of ‘Shake It Off’ by Taylor Swift was chosen in the top 8 of Ryan’s favorite covers on the whole of YouTube and gained worldwide exposure on his website. Tara’s YouTube Channel has recently hit over 800,000 views and her following on social media is growing by thousands.
Excited to share her music with the world, Tara hopes to provide inspiration and enjoyment to other musicians, music lovers and fans.

ALTURAS ‘sin palabras’ Album Launch at Hotel Blue, Upstairs “Live At The Attic” Katoomba, Blue Mountains, Sat 16th May 2015

ALTURAS ‘sin palabras’ Album Launch at Hotel Blue

Hotel Blue, Upstairs “Live At The Attic” Katoomba, Blue Mountains.
Sat 16th May 2015, 7:00pm. Doors Open 6pm.

Alturas are a Sydney-based quintet specialising in the performance of contemporary tango music with distinct jazz influences.

Inspired by the music of Argentina, ‘Alturas’ combines influences from classical, latin and tango to create a unique blend of haunting melodies with jazz-inspired solos.

‘Alturas’ have been performing as a group since 2009. The group started as a duo with Gaye Thomas (flute/bandoneon) and Jane Andino (piano). They have over the years grown to become a quintet, performing throughout Eastern Australia. Members also include Inge Courtney-Haentjes (violin/ viola), Greg Gibson (sax/clarinet), and Stan Valacos (Bass). The group have performed twice for the National Argentine Day celebrations in Canberra, at the request of the Argentinean Embassy.

With a constantly expanding repertoire, Alturas push boundaries with unique re-workings of  traditional tangos, along with stunning arrangements of Piazzolla, Ziegler, Egozcue and contemporary composers including several tango-inspired original pieces.

“An absolute pleasure to play Alturas. Congratulations on a beautiful sounding album.” – Robbie Buck, The Inside Sleeve, Radio National

“I get a lot of CDs and my ears perked up when I heard yours.” – Lucky Oceans, The Daily Planet, Radio National.

Following on from their debut CD, ‘Café con Tango’, Alturas are currently recording their second CD ‘sin palabras’ which moves further into the genre of jazz and includes works from Venezuela and Brazil as well as many Argentinean classics.
They will be embarking on an album launch tour from May 2015.

THE BEEZ “Don’t Mention the Wall!” – Live At The Attic, Upstairs Hotel Blue, Katoomba, Blue Mountains, Sun 26th Apr 2015

THE BEEZ – Don’t Mention The Wall!

The Beez and Fusion Boutique Present: THE BEEZ – Don’t Mention The Wall!

Sunday 26th April 2015

Original Songs, stories, short films and slides from the fall of the Berlin Wall and beyond, with native Berliner Deta Rayner (accordion/voice) and Australian expat and Berlin resident since 1988 Rob Rayner (guitar/voice) This unique show encompasses their experiences, both personal and political, during the Fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989.

From Balkan to Bluegrass, Polka to Punk and Klezmer to Cabaret, this is the unadulterated truth about the dramatic post-Wall banana shortage, East German Country and Western harmonica production and Stasi-assisted sound checks, all from a uniquely German/Australian perspective.

Cabaret sensibilities and trademark soaring harmonies inform Rob and Deta´s performance in a funny and moving account from two musicians unwittingly caught up in one of the most significant events of the 20th century.

Following a successful Australian tour in 2013 (generously supported by the Goethe Institute), this truly unique show is currently being performed in Germany to mark the 25th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall.

“Don’t Mention the Wall!” will be touring Australia from January to May 2015.

“The Beez were one of the most colourful and entertaining ensembles to ever play for us. By the end of the festival they had quite clearly become the most popular act.” – Illawarra Folk Festival Australia

“They were the hit of our 2007 Cobargo Folk Festival. It was mostly their manic energy and superb musicianship that raised the atmosphere of the Festival to new heights. They packed our main venue to bursting and beyond with dancers flanking the fringes.” – Cobargo Folk Festival Australia

SOLD OUT – THE UNDERSCORE ORKESTRA (Portland, Oregon, USA) Australian Tour at Hotel Blue, Upstairs “Live At The Attic” Katoomba, Blue Mountains, Sun 22nd Mar 2015

THE UNDERSCORE ORKESTRA (Portland, Oregon, USA) Australia/NZ Tour

Special Guests ‘THE SQUEEZEBOX TRIO’

Hotel Blue, Upstairs “Live At The Attic” Katoomba, Blue Mountains.

Sun 22nd March 2015, 6:30pm. Doors Open 6pm.

BALKAN, KLEZMER, GYPSY JAZZ & SWING.
With a repertoire consisting of both original and traditional material.

Eclectic and energetic band ‘The Underscore Orkestra’ are based out of Portland Oregon, USA and have been touring the US, Canada, Europe and Central America, Australia and New Zealand for the past 8+ years.

Guaranteed to get you up and moving whether you like to swing dance, Balkan Folk dance, or just go out and shake it!

Their Performance evokes the old world and the new, the eerily haunting air of sounds and movements from the East, with definite roots in the West. Influences are far and wide but range from New Orleans Jazz, to Eastern European Roma and Klezmorim music, Manouche Swing, to Acoustic Metal. They often incorporate live Belly Dance and Circus Arts in their shows.
Syncopated Rhythms and original dance vignettes. Guaranteed to get you up and dancing! It will put the p in your pistol and the zing in your zinger. Guaranteed to boost your bravado and perk your package, tempt your temptress with The Underscore Orkestra. An experience you have to see and hear to believe.

Instrumentation is Violin, Guitar, Accordion, Horns, Clarinet, Bass, Sousaphone Percussion, Harmonica, Piccolo, Ukulele, Bambazoo and Belly Dancing.

The Underscore Orkestra has taken many forms over the years and has travelled far and wide in many ways. Including vegetable oil powered tour bus, planes, trains, boats, autos, hitch hiking. Their favourite way is by bicycle, which they have done numerous times in Europe.

The Underscore Orkestara will be on their 3rd tour of Australia. They have built up a good following from their extensive touring in the past (previous tours included a range of shows over 3 months and also multiple festival appearances at Illawarra Folk Festival, Cobargo Folk Festival, Numeralla Folk Festival as well as Peats Ridge Music Festival and Rainbow Serpent Festival and this year’s Falls Festival in Bryon Bay!)
They will be all up and down the East coast from QLD, NSW, VIC, and back up again.
They are very excited to be returning to play new material written and inspired by their previous Oz adventures.

Their live shows are something to remember for years to come, they are fond of selling many wares, including Underscore Underwear, Uncle Jerry’s Magically Malicious Mustache Wax, CD’s, Neck Ties, Nude Calendars, Music boxes, and Stand up tub Basses.

“The band’s Eastern European sound is sort of a mix between Gypsy rock big guns DeVotchKa and Gogol Bordello. They’ve got the very ethnic sound of the former, and though they play fast, it’s not at the manic punk level of the latter. The phrase ‘foot-stompin’ also is apt, as their original and traditional pieces have a way of making people move” – Reno Retro Mix

“You know a band is good when at the end of their sound check the audience starts clapping” – New Paltz Cultural Collective

The Squeezebox Trio are an amalgamation of piano accordion, violin, two gitane guitars and hell of a lot of Jazz and folk stylings! Thomas Hodson, Michael O’Donnell, Javen Sanchez and Luke Chapman (respectively) form the increasingly inaccurately named ‘THE SQUEEZEBOX TRIO.’ Formed in 2012, this ensemble of vagabond musicians have since brought their energetic live performances and unique musical styling to the Jazz Manouche genre popularised by Django Reinhardt in the 1930’s to several corners of Aus; incorporating influences and a repertoire of European Folk Song, Bossa’s, French Musettes, Jazz favourites, Disney/film classics as well as many originals.

Gadjo Guitars: Sophisticated, passionate, and world class. Gypsy Jazz at its best.
The word Gadjo is a name gypsies have for non gypsies, but you wouldn’t know that these guys have nothing but the gypsy blood flowing through their veins. Gadjo Guitars is the coming together of three great Sydney musicians who share a love for good music, in particular the music of Django Reinhardt, the famous French gypsy who set the bar of guitar playing at an Everest like height back in the 1930s. The band comprises of Nigel Date and Cameron Jones on guitars and Stan Valecos on bass. Band members regularly perform together and separately with some of the best names in the local and international gypsy jazz scene including Ian Date, George Washingmachine, Ian Cooper, Daniel Weltlinger and Lollo Meier.
Gadjo Guitars are a vibrant, sparkling, swinging gypsy jazz trio. Full of good energy, humour and possessing a unique Australian flavour, they are guaranteed to create a wonderful atmosphere and leave you breathless, smiling and asking for more.

VENUE: THE PARAGON CAFE

Paragon’s Chef David Povelsen spent his first 4 years working at Solitary which saw the restaurant maintain it’s coveted position as a ‘one hatter’ in the Good Food Guide. In 2007 David realised a chef’s dream when Solitary attained 2 hats and was one of only 2 two-hatted restaurants in the state.

We are delighted to be able to include David and his talented culinary skills in these unique experience events at the Historic Paragon Café.

The menu will be an alternate drop, unless guests advise the cafe of preferences prior to the evening of the event. Please note that vegetarian options are also available by prior order.
