“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.

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.

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.

ÁINE TYRRELL & The Midnight Tides in Concert at The Metropole Guesthouse Upstairs for ‘Metro Social’ Katoomba Blue Mountains, SUN 3rd July 2016

Fusion Boutique Presents ‘Metro Social’ with ÁINE TYRRELL and her band ‘The Midnight Tides’ live in Concert at the 1930’s Metropole Guesthouse.

+ Special Guests Lime & Steel

Sunday 3rd July 2016, 3:30pm. Doors Open 5pm.

After the last Sold Out launch of ‘METRO SOCIAL’ we are very pleased to present this fabulous artist in the Blue Mountains for her ‘State of (Bus)’ Tour.

From the West Coast of Ireland to a new life on the road in a 1966 Bedford Bus in Australia… Singing her little heart out!

Áine Tyrrell’s music is a contemporary folk collision between the Ireland of generations gone, and the hope of tomorrow. Her songs are as honest as an old friend, warm and inviting, managing somehow to fuse melodies over rhythms which transport you directly into the mid 19th century, to a land hardened by atrocity, which the rest of the world had temporarily forgotten.
She is a singer songwriter with a sound that transcends the convention the title suggests, at times anything from tribal to fragile and heartbreaking and most of all immaculately crafted.

Áine’s music cradles the spirit of her native homeland, and tips the cap to a notable family history of Irish music tradition. It has grown from those traditional Irish roots into a truly contemporary sound. Ache, honesty, and elated melodies, garnishing rhythms which a thousand years of ancestry have slammed foot to floor boards to, in both celebration and protest.

Australia’s historical lineage, and love of all things Irish, stands as testament to the accolades and support she is now garnering here in her new homeland, having procured the honour of Queenscliff Music festivals ‘Emerging Talent 2014’ mantle. Along with receiving the invaluable and ongoing mentorship from our own revered songstress, Clare Bowditch as well as Shane Howard, and in the success of her own extensive tour in support of ‘Queen of Swords’ Áine’s audience has grown, captivated by this unique talent who has infiltrated hearts and minds with her voice, stories and ability to motivate even the most reluctant of audiences into raucous sing-alongs.

“Tyrrell’s irrepressible personality and indefatigable nature pervades Queen of Swords” – Rhythms Magazine Jan 2016

“Tyrrell’s songwriting talent is evident in the crafting of the lyrics in this vigorous, barely tamed LP (Queen of Swords).” – BMA Magazine

“Her voice is unmistakably Irish, in a way few singers are any more.” Irish Echo 2015

“Soul, intelligence, wit and wisdom, history and mystery and a voice that brings it all together. Don’t miss her, for fear that you might miss the very thing you need.” Shane Howard 2015

“Áine connects deeply with her music…emotionally stirring and uplifting.” National Celtic Festival

Áine will be accompanied by fellow musicians on Uilleann pipes, percussion and upright bass.

+ Special Guests Blue Mountains locals Lime & Steel.

Lime and Steel’s roots-down banjo fiddle grooves, dust kicking hoe-downs and original folk noir convict murder ballads brush on just enough paint to catch the darker side of the Australian soul: All cut with equal parts charm and cheap wine.
