Two Final Shows For 2015

Well the travelling continues at this end – most of our crew are outside Melbourne at the moment, with Mikaela spending the winter working at Edinburgh Fringe Festival, Loni just arriving in London yesterday, myself spending the week at CMJ Festival in New York and Rhea about to head to Woodford Folk Festival for the rest of the year. Crazy times! (and far less glamorous than it might sound)

Not to fear though – we’ll be back home in time for the magnificent Don McGlashan on November 14th (less than 40 tickets left for that!) and we have two exciting new shows on sale today!

The first is Shane Nicholson on November 28th. I have said it many times that Shane played my favourite Folk Club set of our first year. It was perfection. So i’m very pumped that he’ll be back playing tracks from his 2-time ARIA nominated new album Hell Breaks Loose. 

Check out the first single from that album Second Hand Heart HERE

Shane will be joined by Lucy Peach from WA. A friend sent her tunes through a while back and they immediately grabbed me. Check out a live song HERE

We then have local legends TinPan Orange releasing their new single You’re Not There on December 13 with special guest Mel Parsons.

TPO are fronted by Emily Lubitz, and she has one of the most beautiful voices in the country (I have always adored her version of THIS SONG) and the band includes the rhythm guitar and vocals of her brother Jesse, multi-instrumentlist imprasario Alex Burkoy and the outrageously talented founder of The Cat Empire, Harry James Angus. They have released four brilliant albums to date and are always outstanding live. We’ll send you the single when it’s out Oct 30th.

This is quite a bill also, with Kiwi Mel Parsons opening the show. Mel is a good friend of ours, and has an incredible track record as 2 x Folk Album of the Year finalist in the NZ Music Awards and finalist for Song of the Year this year in NZ land. Her songs are heartfelt, poignant and rhythmically dynamic, and Mel is one of the true champions of the music scene – absolute legend.

I should include her new single, but HERE is my favourite Mel Parsons song from her first album

A reminder that we are now at Bakehouse Studios – with entry on Little Hoddle Street. Beer & wine will be available, with a members discount on drinks. This is the space without tables & chairs out.

Grab tickets for all shows HERE and let us know if you have any questions/complaints/demands/suggestions.
