Mel Parsons for The Boathouse

Thursday 9th August 2018

Award-winning singer songwriter Mel Parsons is well recognised as one of New Zealand’s established songwriting stars – matched by her equally generous heart.

On the very day of Cyclone Fehi Mel contacted The Boathouse with a heartwarming offer to help with fundraising for repairs, and with the support of the Theatre Royal this we have a benefit concert! Joining Mel on stage are Jed Parsons and Josh Logan.

With her dynamic band Parsons is an engaging performer with a natural emotive voice that allows the listener to become part of the story. Her unique style simmers somewhere between indie/folk and alt/country.

Opening acts:
The Community Choir at The Boathouse – Vibrant singing group with fabulous songs from around the world – exploring harmony, rhythm, sound, breath, unity.

Django Schmango – this highly regarded Hot Club style group of local musicians has its roots are firmly in the music made famous by Django Reinhardt and Stéphane Grappelli.
