Mel Parsons, singer-songwriter, guitarist, solo and group performer from New Zealand will perform at the Beatty House this Thursday as part of the Homeroutes House Concert tour.

Parsons, one of New Zealand’s established song writing stars, is a modern folk artist on the rise.

The Kiwi singer/songwriter has won critical acclaim and was a two time NZ Music Award (VNZMA) finalist for Folk Album of the Year.

She’s been travelling globally – in Australia, the UK, Ireland, Germany, the U.S. and now Canada – to show off her skills in both music and performance, and to promote her new album to be released early in 2015.

Mel writes songs that reflect her mature, positive and sometimes poignant reflections on life, love and loss. She is well known for drawing on the folk tradition of telling stories, and blending it with pop hooks and a unique sensibility to melody and harmony.

Tickets can be purchased at Stationery Stories and Sounds, Main Street, Rimbey or ordered through Teri at 403.843.6497 or Bron at 403.843.2547. There is a limit of 40 tickets, but may still be available at the door at performance time.

A cash bar will be available.

Homeroutes house concerts at the Beatty House are coming up:

On Friday, March 6, Kim Dunn, long time pianist for Rita McNeil and independent performer from Nova Scotia (www.kimdunn.ca) will perform.

On Sat., April 11 Cassie and Maggie MacDonald, Celtic fiddlers from Nova Scotia (www.cassieandmaggie.com) will finish off the season in style.
