Description

Descending from the mountains are harp and fiddle extravaganza Mickey & Michelle, whose energetic and virtuosic performances have captured hearts throughout Australia and New Zealand. Celebrated for their artistry and virtuosic skill, Mickey & Michelle weave a gorgeous ‘chamber-folk’ tapestry of original Celtic music infused with vocal harmony and fiery improvisations.

The duo’s inception began with a wild idea to tour the length of New Zealand on foot for 6 months. This adventurous spirit continues to fuel their creativity, drawing inspiration from the beauty of the natural world. Through their carefully crafted lyrics and instrumentals, listeners are invited to reflect on their own relationship with nature.

Mickey & Michelle are excited to release their sophomore album Solace in Wonder this winter, having spent the last five years developing their compositions and arrangements. The album showcases Michelle’s virtuosity in her eight minute epic harp concerto Grove of Giants, while Mickey’s poignant lyricism is on full display as they deftly explore their relation with the natural world, while also celebrating music making and community.

Joining Mickey and Michelle to start the evening are the exquisite harmonies of Kat, Lou, and Meggie – known collectively as Bower. With their roots in classical music, they built their Bower from a shared love of blending vocal harmonies, authentic songwriting and folk sensibilities, driven by a cosmic and comforting blend of female voices. Let us carry you home on thoughtful three-part harmonies, original tunes and unexpected arrangements of songs old and new.

“Bower’s harmonies are a thing of beauty on their own, but overlaid on top of a mix of covers and their own work, it gets awfully close to magic.” -The Underground Stage
