2015 Silver Scroll finalist and Fly My Pretties star Mel Parsons brings her stellar show home to Canterbury this November for a special performance in the peerless beauty that is the newly refurbished Isaac Theatre Royal.

The show will be part of a five date spring tour taking in some of NZ’s most beautiful and iconic theatres, with Parsons accompanied by a full band performing songs and from her new 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 hero Ron Sexsmith, who was impressed enough with her work to lend his voice to the poignant track ‘Don’t Wait’ from the 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.

 "Parsons not only means and feels every moment here, every song, every story – her band is with her, beside her; they’re all wrapped up inside this music. It’s lovely. Really, really lovely.” - Simon Sweetman
