Fusion Boutique Presents 'Palais Performances' Concerts for Listening Audiences with MICKEY & MICHELLE + LITTLE CLOUDS (Emily-Rose Šárkova & Nick Henderson) Live in Concert at the Palais Royale Grand Ballroom

A marvellous listening experience created by Fusion Boutique in the gorgeous Palais Royal Ballroom.

Mickey & Michelle are a harp and fiddle duo from Australia who seamlessly blend contemporary folk and jazz together in a rich, unique style of their own.

Their 2019 debut album 'A Walking Pace' perfectly showcases the duo's intricate sound and unusual combination of styles.

Michelle was born into an incredibly musical family and has been performing professionally from the age of 11. Since then she has gone on to perform with the likes of Paul Kelly, Shane Howard and Fiona Ross. Her compositions on the album are deeply rooted in Celtic music while also balancing her attention to detail and nuanced phrasing from her classical studies.

Mickey on the other hand developed such a passion for jazz and his playful improvisations are ever-present in his original compositions. He also takes great delight in reinterpreting traditional Americana tunes with jazz harmony and Afro-Cuban polyrhythms.

The dynamic duo have returned from their most challenging adventure yet; a 6 month tour on foot of NZ's 3000km 'Te Araroa' trail. Mickey & Michelle are excited to share their experiences and music in their home country.

Little Clouds are a subtly nostalgic, feel good singer songwriter duo from Sydney, Australia. AKA Nick Henderson & Emily-Rose Sarkova, Little Clouds write lofty afternoon inspired hits and introspective midnight bangers, laced with clever lyrics and sweet chords that make you feel real good. And let's be honest - we are all in it for the feelings. They move unassumingly between their multi-instrumentalist personalities of guitar, bass, piano, keys, synths, accordion and vocals. It is intimate. It is real. Journeys will be had.

If one requires some hard hitting musical facts about these two musicians, you might like to know that they are Conservatorium graduates who have played with award winning and very diverse musicians such as Mike Nock, Australian Brandenburg Orchestra, Elio Franco, Chaika, Arcing Wires, Monsieur Camembert, Duo Ramirez Satorre and Chris Cody Octet.

Your ServiceNSW Discover Vouchers can also be redeemed for concert bookings.

Guests can enjoy a range of beverages (beer, wine, cider, spirits, soft drinks and hot drinks) from the Palais Royal bar, as well as pre-order a cheese plate for $15 to be available for pick up on the evening too.
