Nelson - Doors 7:30pm. Show start 8pm.

Join two of Australasia’s indie-folk darlings on a journey of music & story - sharing songs from their back catalogues along with select southern hemisphere favourites that have helped shape them as artists.

Both artists have distinctive voices, a story-telling bent and dry humour that will have audiences laughing & crying, not necessarily in that order.

Mel Parsons is well known to NZ audiences, the award-winning songwriter tours full time from international festivals to woolsheds in our own backyard, and has her third critically acclaimed album under her belt.

"Exceptionally written, beautifully arranged and remarkably consistent." - The Music AU
“Captivating... impressive new material.” - NZ Herald

Liz Stringer was playing piano before she could talk, and in her home country of Australia is a highly regarded songwriter who has toured internationally with a host of artists, and counts Bonnie Raitt in her ever-growing list of fans.

“Anyone recalls a Chrissie Hynde-like balance of unsettling lyrical directness and pop composure.” – Rolling Stone

“Make no mistake. This is a phenomenal album from a major talent.” – Les Thomas, Unpaved

Parsons & Stringer kick off their trans-Tasman run in Australia on September 21st in Adelaide, running through until October 14th in Canterbury, New Zealand.
