Festival organisers have announced that Nine Mile Creek will be part of their bluegrass lineup for this year’s Wirrina Festival in South Australia.
Nine Mile Creek hails from Victoria and features Mark Pottenger on mandolin, Colin Weight on banjo, Andrew Barcham on double bass, and Doug Wallace on guitar with all members of the band sharing vocals.
Nine Mile Creek is a bluegrass band playing traditional and original Bluegrass, with a touch of Swing and Americana. Lead vocal duties are shared, and two, three and four-part harmonies make for an exciting, toe-tapping musical experience. The band has a strong repertoire, and is a regular contributor to the Mountain Pickers Association’s monthly night. They regularly feature at Australian bluegrass festivals, including Mountain Grass, Kelly Country Pick, Great Alpine Creek and the Foggy Mountain Bluegrass festival.
If you’ve seen this band perform, you’ll know that South Australians are in for a treat.
