From Jesse Mulligan, 1–4pm, 1:10 pm on 8 August 2018

Mel Parsons is playing in Nelson this Thursday at a concert to raising money for The Boathouse, a performance venue which was badly damaged by Cyclone Fehi in February. She joins us along with bassist Josh Logan to perform her song 'I Got The Lonely' live.

Back in February, two iconic Nelson venues were badly damaged by Cyclone Fehi, which saw a huge storm surge push water through the buildings.

The Boat Shed Cafe is now back up and running but The Boathouse, which is a performance venue, is still being fixed up.

A Boathouse benefit concert is being held this Thursday evening at the Theatre Royal in Nelson, headlined by singer-songwriter Mel Parsons, who dropped into RNZ's Wellington studio for a chat and to perform her song 'I Got The Lonely'.
