Mel Parsons with special guest Julia Deans
5 November 2015
2015 Silver Scroll finalist and Fly My Pretties friend Mel Parsons will embark on a 5 date tour of some of New Zealand’s most beautiful and iconic theatres, including the newly refurbished Isaac Theatre Royal in Christchurch and historical Crystal Palace in Auckland.
Accompanied by a full band, Parsons will be 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 is a two-time NZ Music Award (VNZMA) finalist for Folk Album of the Year, and a finalist for the coveted APRA Silver Scroll 2015 award.
