A night of great songs, duets, harmonies, and country rock and roll!

Guest vocals from Tom Hespe, Leah Flanagan and Michael Ward on drums.

Melanie has been described by the Sydney Morning Herald as having a voice of ‘the utmost delicateness’, and as a ‘songwriting gem’ by The Australian.

Based in Candelo in southern NSW, Melanie has recorded 11 albums and EPs including her latest solo album, Song to Sing on a Saturday Night and this August’s duo album The World Has A Gentle Soul with Steve Appel.

Melanie’s critically acclaimed album The Cloud Appreciation Society was long-listed for the 2013 Australian Music Prize, Quatre Chemins for the 2015 Australian Music Prize, and she was nominated for an APRA award in 2011.

She has toured with Glen Hansard and The Frames, Jason Mraz, Bernard Fanning, Lou Rhodes, Slaid Cleaves and Sarah Blasko among others, as well as touring extensively on her own in Australia and Europe.

Melanie recorded an album in French, which was funded by the highly successful Pozible campaign and gave Melanie a 6 month residency in France, writing songs with poet Alain Rivet and pop icon Helena Noguerra.

Melanie has also written songs with Wendy Matthews and Catherine Britt, and for film and television.

Doors at 6pm and show at 8pm.
