Melbourne based duo The Colvin Brothers are headed to South East Queensland in July. The Colvin Brothers are Colin Weight on guitar and vocals and Vinny Russell on mandolin and vocals. These two pickers came together through a mutual love of bluegrass, as well as country and old-time influences.
For a long time they have been active in the Victorian (and national) folk and bluegrass circuits, largely through their respective bands Nine Mile Creek and The Knott Family Band. Their performances as a duo draw from a broad span of original and traditional material, from the likes of Bill Monroe and The Everly Brothers right through to Hot Rize and Mandolin Orange. Playing with melodic picking, sung close harmonies and a joyful energy, their performances are sure to delight.
You can catch their Queensland shows on the following dates:
- 14th July 7pm-10pm Sound Builders Expo Showcase Concert, Magda Community Artz, 80 Boundary Rd, Bardon, QLD 4065
