    Event 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 is Charley Castle.

    Formerly known as Charlotte Rose, Sydney songbird Charley Castle’s self-classified brand of “city folk” connects elements of bluegrass, Americana and folk music with city sensibilities. An infectious performer and devastating songwriter, half an hour in her world spans the spectrum from heartbreaking to holler-inducing.

    Charley was a student at the CMAA Academy of Country Music 2023, the winner of the Australian National Busking Championships Best Vocals Award 2023 and was twice shortlisted for the ASA Australian Songwriting Contest in 2020. She has shared the stage with The Bushwackers, Kevin Bennett and the Flood, and Lyn Bowtell (among others), and opened for Aussie icons Daryl Brathwaite, Brian Cadd, You Am I, and Thirsty Merc.
