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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Live at The Old City Bank
FREE LIVE MUSIC

Friday 1st December 2023

Venue: THE OLD CITY BANK BAR

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

CORMAC GRANT (Newcastle)
Live at The Old City Bank

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

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

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

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

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

www.facebook.com/lesthomasmusic

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

From Gresford NSW, singer/songwriter Georgie Winchester will celebrate the release of her second EP ‘Follow The Sound’ on a 2023 East Coast autumn tour.

In one year, Georgie’s Spotify has gathered a growing 36,000 streams with one track signed to Ninetone Records.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Her live show poignantly delivers a moving set relevant to our times that journey us through three epochs from Truth, Healing and Rising giving the audience a diverse palate of feelings as the music genres she so seamlessly blends.

+ Special Guest Blue Mountains local: Luca Zumwalt

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

Their music tells the stories of life, love, and loss and their connection with people is key to their performance. The band has released two studio EPs and is currently working on their first studio album. They have received much attention and acclaim after taking first place in a string of talent-filled band competitions and as a result have formed a strong audience base that follows their regular shows.

BRADLEY CHRISTMAS

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

Melissa Black is a stirring and powerful performer. With deep roots in folk and blues, opting for the past couple of years to not push the live performance scene but choosing to work with some of Australia’s finest songwriters and focus on delivering her next collection of works. Melissa will soon be releasing these heart songs and bringing them on tour.

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

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

FUSION BOUTIQUE presents MELBOURNE SONGWRITERS COLLECTIVE Featuring CHEV PERSON + PIA NESVARA + STAV. w/ MAIZY in Concert at Junction142, Katoomba, Blue Mountains

Fusion Boutique Presents
MELBOURNE SONGWRITERS COLLECTIVE
Featuring CHEV PERSON + PIA NESVARA + STAV.
+ Special Guest MAIZY COOMBES
Live in Concert at Junction142

SATURDAY 29th October 2022
Doors Open 7:30pm | Show Start 8pm

Venue: JUNCTION142 (The Uniting Church)
142 Katoomba St, Katoomba, Blue Mountains NSW 2780

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

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

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

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

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

+ Special Guest MAIZY COOMBES

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

Much care is taken in the arrangements and instrumentation, incorporating a wide range of textures, colours and dynamics to evocative effect.

Holding down the bass is Susanne “Skye” Evans a multi-instrumentalist and vocalist based in Katoomba, hailing from Nebraska USA.

Broken Creek Cropped web300

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

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

The album will also be available as a CD at shows and on Bandcamp as well as the usual streaming platforms .

Richard is the triple ARIA nominated former drummer for Aust Punk rock legends The Lime Spiders and is a multi-instrumentalist, composer and teacher of over 300 students since leaving the band and has explored all musical possibilities from 70’s Art Rock, Folk to Electronica and Ambient/Classical crossover including soundtrack work.
Richard has been performing and touring regularly on the South Coast of NSW and plans are also under way for his works to be scored, performed and recorded by the esteemed classical ensemble ‘The Acacia Quartet’ later this year, with applications to several major classical music festivals in the pipeline.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

KimberleyWheelerIMG_1665web300

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

A sought after session musician, she’s also known for lending Backing Vocals, Percussion & Guitar duties to some of the countries finest including Beccy Cole, Jen Mize, Libby O’Donovan & Amber Joy Poulton.
Whether around a campfire, in RSLs or in the intimate setting of people’s living rooms, this is an artist you simply need to hear. Her captivating live show will have you giggling one minute and in tears the next as she tells stories about her travels, her family and her much loved 1992 Toyota Hiace “Pamela Vanderson”.

“She’s known for having an extraordinarily rare voice” – CLARE BOWDITCH

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

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

“if the place isn’t packed, this town needs to hang it’s head in shame” – SCALA NEWS

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Smith & Jones, a duo from Bathurst, made up of keyboard player and vocalist Abby Smith, with guitarist and vocalist Sophie Jones, have never been ones to follow the pack. Though classified as alt-country, their goal has never been to remain within the confines of any genre, preferring to let their sound and their songs take them where they will.

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

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

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

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

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

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

In 2019, with producer Syd Green, Andy recorded his debut album ‘Man on the Mountain’ in a small farmhouse in Kangaroo Valley.

Kate Ceberano commented on Andy’s performance at the 2021 Inland Sea of Sound as ‘Singing about the humanness of it all’

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Kind Regards
Charity

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

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

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

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

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

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

Linda is a folk style songwriter predominantly but has strong undertones of country and blues in her music. She tells real stories through her music – with strong lyric based songs; that are upfront, honest, quirky and sometimes even confronting. Some of her major influences are the likes of; Patty Griffin, Lucinda Williams, Sheryl Crow, and Rickie Lee Jones.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Live in Concert at Pigeon Lane @ ONE88

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Live in Concert at Pigeon Lane @ ONE88

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Beloved WA indie/folk/country/good-feels outfit ‘The Little Lord Street Band’ makes “music that crosses all boundaries – it’s music for pure enjoyment” – Jake Wilton, AAA Backstage

Natasha Shanks and James Rogers are The Little Lord Street Band Duo. Their duelling, duetting lead singer dynamic is reminiscent of classic Johnny Cash and June Carter; punctuated by the occasional jaw-dropping emotionally resonant acoustic number.

In their five years together, The Little Lord Street band have released three critically lauded EPs, toured Australia, and garnered significant national airplay on ABC Country, Double J, Triple J and community radio – racking up nationwide AMRAP Metro and Regional Top 10 singles and multiple additions to RTR FM’s ‘Sound Selection’.
They are winners of the WAM Best Country Act for two consecutive years – and winners of the 2018 WAM Song of the Year (Country).

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Smith & Jones are a duo from Bathurst, made up of keyboard player and vocalist Abby Smith, with guitarist and vocalist Sophie Jones. They have never been ones to follow the pack. Though classified as alt-country, their goal has never been to remain within the confines of any genre, preferring to let their sound and their songs take them where they will. Nowhere does this desire for individuality shine brighter then on their newly released second album ‘Something Worth Learning’ which is still full of the charm and joy audiences have come to expect from them This new work delicately balances themes of love and loss, friendship and isolation, emotional desire and freedom, fearlessly exploring the depths of their musical partnership with the listener by their side.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Dave-Wells-Press-300

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

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

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

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

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

MIKE & RUTHY (USA) – FROM THE MAMMALS in Concert at Hotel Blue Upstairs for ‘Live At The Attic’ Katoomba, Blue Mountains, FRI 1st November 2019

Fusion Boutique Presents ‘Live At The Attic’ with
MIKE + RUTHY (USA) – FROM THE MAMMALS
Live in Concert, upstairs at Hotel Blue

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

“Pristine” – The New York Times

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

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

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

Live in Concert, upstairs at Hotel Blue

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

“Jordan McRobbie is an amazing contemporary finger-style guitarist. He has complete command of his instrument with intense guitar percussion, finger tapping, and lightning fast Celtic grooves! And this guy can sing! A great, strong, clear and articulate voice. His performance had 100% commitment with the intensity of tightly wound steel spring.

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

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

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

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

+ Special Guest Raechel Whitchurch

raechel-whitechurch-300

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

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

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

*** This show is now SOLD OUT!

We advise booking early to avoid disappointment! ***

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

“quite simply breathtaking” – Rhythms Magazine

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

klm-portrait300

+ Special Guest KRISTEN LEE MORRIS

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

SmithAndJones0L7A2954web300

+ Special Guests SMITH & JONES

Smith & Jones are a duo from Bathurst, made up of keyboard player and vocalist Abby Smith, with guitarist and vocalist Sophie Jones. They have never been ones to follow the pack. Though classified as alt-country, their goal has never been to remain within the confines of any genre, preferring to let their sound and their songs take them where they will. Nowhere does this desire for individuality shine brighter then on their newly released second album ‘Something Worth Learning’ which is still full of the charm and joy audiences have come to expect from them This new work delicately balances themes of love and loss, friendship and isolation, emotional desire and freedom, fearlessly exploring the depths of their musical partnership with the listener by their side.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

PRESS QUOTES
“Daniel Champagne is a crossroads. Fusing the strong traditions of Blues, Folk and other roots art with pop showmanship and admirable lyrical ability. I firmly believe that he will become an ambassador for roots music in a time where it desperately needs representation.”
 – The Indie Blender, Canada
“One of the more amazing young percussive guitarists touring the world right now”
 – Blank, Gold Coast, Australia
“Today I saw the future of Folk – Festival goers flocking in their thousands towards the main stage to witness the young musical phenomenon from Australia dish out an absolute show-stopper at the evening’s end.”
 – Firefly Column, USA
“Watching Daniel Champagne perform is a once in a lifetime experience. He is a true prodigy that plays like no one else could possibly play unless they spent at least two lifetimes studying the art.”
 – BW Review, New Zealand
“The word Prodigy seems to entirely fall short of this soft-spoken young man’s skills, he coaxes sounds and melodies out of his instrument that literally drop jaws.”
 – The Calgary Herald, Canada
“The superb talent of Daniel Champagne can’t be explained by mere words; it must be seen to be believed.”
 – FasterLouder, Australia
“There’s a reason Champagne has an amazing reputation as a live performer.”
 – Timber And Steel, Australia
“Within the boundaries of Folk, Champagne is an expert”
 – Tone Deaf
“Champagne has proven that he’s a talent you can’t possibly ignore. His live shows have drawn rapturous responses from all corners”
 – Rhythms Magazine

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 song writing craft, especially his lyrics. This music is very Australian, highly original and delivered with refreshing honesty and integrity.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

*** This show is now SOLD OUT!

We advise booking early to avoid disappointment.  ***

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

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

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

“Understated, slick and soulful” – Double J

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

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

+ Special Guest Jacob Diamond

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

+ Special Guests WOMBATS CROSSING

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

+ Special Guest MARTIN FOOTE

Martin Foote is a gifted guitarist from the Blue Mountains of NSW, who plays with a passion and flair that turns heads whenever he takes to the stage.
Growing up in a musical family, Martin began playing guitar at the age of ten, taught by his father, Nigel Foote, who gave him a strong foundation in folk-blues fingerpicking styles. After meeting the guitarists Joe Robinson and Michael Fix, Martin was encouraged to study the instrumental works and guitar styles of the legendary Tommy Emmanuel.
Over the next few years, Martin attended Emmanuel’s workshop and two residential guitar camps, at the end of which he performed Classical Gas together with Tommy.
Martin’s EP, ‘Moving On’ was released at the Blue Mountains Music Festival in March 2018.

+ Special Guests DEVIL ON THE ROOFTOP

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

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

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

Live in Concert at the 1930’s Metropole Guesthouse.

Sunday 10th June 2018, 6pm. Doors Open 5pm.

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

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

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

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

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

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

PRESS QUOTES
“Daniel Champagne is a crossroads. Fusing the strong traditions of Blues, Folk and other roots art with pop showmanship and admirable lyrical ability. I firmly believe that he will become an ambassador for roots music in a time where it desperately needs representation.”
 – The Indie Blender, Canada
“One of the more amazing young percussive guitarists touring the world right now”
 – Blank, Gold Coast, Australia
“Today I saw the future of Folk – Festival goers flocking in their thousands towards the main stage to witness the young musical phenomenon from Australia dish out an absolute show-stopper at the evening’s end.”
 – Firefly Column, USA
“Watching Daniel Champagne perform is a once in a lifetime experience. He is a true prodigy that plays like no one else could possibly play unless they spent at least two lifetimes studying the art.”
 – BW Review, New Zealand
“The word Prodigy seems to entirely fall short of this soft-spoken young man’s skills, he coaxes sounds and melodies out of his instrument that literally drop jaws.”
 – The Calgary Herald, Canada
“The superb talent of Daniel Champagne can’t be explained by mere words; it must be seen to be believed.”
 – FasterLouder, Australia
“There’s a reason Champagne has an amazing reputation as a live performer.”
 – Timber And Steel, Australia
“Within the boundaries of Folk, Champagne is an expert”

SOLD OUT – TEN STRINGS AND A GOAT SKIN (CANADA) in Concert at The Metropole Guesthouse Upstairs for ‘Metro Social’ Katoomba Blue Mountains, WED 11th April 2018

TEN STRINGS AND A GOAT SKIN (CANADA)
live in Concert at the 1930’s Metropole Guesthouse.

Wednesday 11th April 2018, 6:30pm. Doors Open 5:30pm.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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