Just Announced: New Zealand’s most beautiful and famous singer/songwriter and comedian Anika Moa is set to join Silver Scroll finalist and Fly My Pretties star Mel Parsons, along with Julia Deans, for a special show on October 31st at Mt Eden’s historical Crystal Palace Theatre.

The show will be part of a five date tour of some of New Zealand’s most beautiful and iconic theatres, where Parsons will be accompanied by a full band performing songs from her newly released and critically acclaimed third album ‘Drylands’. Parsons will be joined by Kiwi music legend Julia Deans performing a rare solo set to open the show. Deans has captivated audiences throughout her career: from fronting Fur Patrol, to co-conspirator with renowned supergroup The Adults, to sultry chanteuse in Silo Theatre’s Brel.

An engaging performer with a sharp wit and natural emotive voice, Parsons has a fan in Canadian songwriting maestro Ron Sexsmith, who was impressed enough with her work to lend his voice to the poignant track ‘Don’t Wait’ from her new album. Parsons is a two-time NZ Music Award (VNZMA) finalist for Folk Album of the Year, and a current finalist for the coveted APRA Silver Scroll award.

A licensed cash bar and refreshments will be available on the night.

The Crystal Palace is a charming rustic venue (with limited heating) please dress warmly in case of a cold night!

Doors open 6:30pm
