Mel Parsons is going on tour with the women behind hit comedy show The Bitches' Box.

The show, the brainchild of Amelia Dunbar and Emma Newborn, explored what two female dogs on heat would talk about if they were locked in a kennel together.

It was a hit at international comedy festivals and around New Zealand, so now they're back with a new show, Sons of a Bitch, in which the dog characters make a return to attempt to "bridge the urban/rural divide" through comedy.

Mel Parsons won the award for Country Song of the Year this year, following the release of her critically acclaimed album Drylands.

The Silver Scroll nominee won the award for Country Song of the Year this year, following the release of her critically acclaimed album Drylands.

She'll be belting out a collection of new and old songs ahead of Sons of a Bitch as the trio travel the country by horse truck to play at the woolsheds of the North Island - a track once reserved for the Topp Twins and Fred Dagg.

Each show will be preceded by a fundraiser barbecue run by the local school or community group, and a cash bar will be operating.

The Sons of a Bitch and Mel Parsons: North Island Woolshed Tour will visit towns all over the North Island starting in Pirinoa on October 19 and ending in Hutt Valley on November 13.

They did a sell-out tour earlier this year in the South Island which was a huge hit.
