About the Show:

Mel Parsons - After a huge year in 2015, award-winning folk/country artist Mel Parsons brings us a new solo show following on from her critically acclaimed new album ‘Drylands’. Winner of the 2016 NZ Country Song of the Year, Parsons was also a 2015 finalist for the prestigious APRA Silver Scroll Award, and is a cast member of ‘Fly My Pretties’. With a razor sharp wit and deft hand on the guitar, one of NZ’s favourite globe trotting singer-songwriters presents a swag of new songs (plus old favourites) to fall in love with.

'Sons of a Bitch' - From the makers of The Bitches’ Box comes a hilarious new show featuring a swag of delightful (and disgusting) dogs. Country bumpkin Amelia Dunbar & city slicker Emma Newborn once again take to the stage, in an attempt to bridge the urban/rural divide the only way they know how…by playing dogs. Join them as they present their signature, fast paced, multi-character, new show ’Sons of a Bitch’. The side-splitting sequel to the 5-star gem ‘The Bitches’ Box’ - a hit with audiences from Edendale to Edinburgh, from wool sheds to glittering festivals worldwide.

The promoters gratefully acknowledge the support of our tour sponsors:
Farmstrong, ANZCO, Allan Scott Family Winemakers and Eventfinda.
