Whitetop Mountaineers on Tour

WhitetopMountaineersFrom the hills and hollows of Virginia’s Appalachian Mountains come The Whitetop Mountaineers, returning to Australia for their 6th National tour.

As in their home region, Martha Spencer & Jackson Cunningham are well-known and much-loved in this country. They have a host of communities looking forward to hearing their authentic, faithful renditions of old country tunes again. Sharing vocals as they swap between guitar & banjo, or sticking with their chosen specialties, fiddle & mandolin, this young ol’ timey couple are the real deal.

If you’ve not caught them previously, be sure to catch a show as their 5 week tour takes in QLD, NSW, ACT, VIC & SA. If you know what you’re in for, you’ve probably booked already.
