Village Music presents Mel Parsons

VillageMusic is proud to present Mel Parsons in concert on Friday 26th July, for concert No.3 of our winter series at Mt Eden Village Centre. 

Mel has been on our radar for some time now and her superb album "Glass Heart", produced by none other than Mitchell Froom (Crowded House, Suzanne Vega, Elvis Costello, Missy Higgins, Randy Newman, Lindsay Buckingham/Christine McVie) has been playing on a regular rotate here at VillageMusic HQ since its release. This album follows 2015’s award-winning ‘Drylands’, which spent 51 weeks in the (IMNZ Album) charts.

Mel Parsons is no stranger to the limelight – As a full-time touring artist Mel has garnered a Silver Scroll finalist nod for ‘Get Out Alive’ in 2015, won the 2016 NZCMA Best Song for ‘Alberta Sun’ and the VNZMA for Best Engineer for the ‘Drylands’ record. Both her debut album ‘Over My Shoulder’ (2009) and sophomore offering ‘Red Grey Blue’ (2011) were also VNZMA finalists for Folk Album of the Year. Parsons is also a former cast member of Kiwi musical supergroup ‘Fly My Pretties‘, with sell-out tours and festival performances throughout Australasia.

Most recently, Mel has been touring as the support act for The Proclaimers. No small achievement and yet more recognition of Mel's solo talents. This will be a terrific opportunity to see and hear Mel Parsons in the intimate setting of our lovely old wooden hall - certainly a concert 'not to be missed'.
