Mickey & Michelle are a harp and fiddle duo from Australia who have managed to seamlessly blend contemporary folk and jazz together in a rich, unique style of their own. Their 2019 debut album ‘A Walking Pace’ perfectly showcases Michelle’s classical virtuosity and the deep-rooted Celtic sensibilities she has developed from playing in her family band from the age of 11.
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 tune with jazz harmony and Afro-Cuban polyrhythms. The dynamic duo are embarking on their most challenging adventure yet; a 6 month, tramp of NZ’s Te Araroa 3000km trail.
Mickey & Michelle are bringing their instruments with them to perform a series of concerts along the trail. 20 percent of all merch sales will be donated to osteoporosis research, a subject very close to their hearts.
