The Davidson Brothers are considered two of Australia’s most highly driven and well respected bluegrass musicians.
Hamish and Lachie were raised in the rural Victorian town of Yinnar and began performing and recording in 1998. Since then, they’ve toured the United States, Europe, and extensively across Australia.
Mostly self-taught, multi-instrumentalists, both Hamish (fiddle, banjo, guitar, dobro, vocals) and Lachlan (mandolin, fiddle, guitar, vocals) became in-demand session musicians before they finished high school and as teenagers they won National Bluegrass Championship titles.
The Davidson Brothers have had top 10 Country Radio Singles, reached the ARIA Country Albums Chart and established the Australian Bluegrass Scholarship in 2011 to enhance a young culture and encourage acoustic musicians.
After 18 consecutive years performing the Tamworth Country Music Festival, three Golden Guitar Awards later, Hamish and Lachie return with their eighth studio release, All You Need Is Music, which was recorded in Nashville and features 12 new original Bluegrass and Country tracks.
Recently, the boys were inducted by the Australian Country Music Hall of Fame into Tamworth’s Hands Of Fame monument and in 2016 they teamed with legendary rocker Joe Camilleri and the Black Sorrows, opening sold-out shows in Melbourne and regional Victoria.
The Southern Valley Folk Club is bringing the Davidson Brothers to the Bega Valley on Saturday, June 24. They will be performing at Nethercote Hall at 7pm. Tickets $20. For more information call 6496 7196.
