Mel Parsons ft Aine Tyrrell
Brisbane Only
Nov/Dec 2016

New Zealand’s favourite singer-songwriter hit Australian shores this Nov/Dec, with an intimate double bill solo tour from east coast to west. Mel Parsons & Aine Tyrrell, both multi award-winning touring artists, will be performing songs new and old in Brisbane for one show only.

Mel Parsons is on the road to mark the Australian release of her multi-award winning latest album ‘Drylands’, out on November 4th via MGM. A relentless touring artist, Parsons spends much of her time living out of a suitcase, with recent tours in North America & Germany.

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