Treat for lovers of bluegrass
for a country treat when Round Mountain Girls play Southport Sharks tomorrow night. The group’s country style and wide repertoire has led to their music being played on Triple J, ABC radio’s Saturday Night Country, The Country Music Channel and a host of other blues and roots radio shows. They’ve won fans at the Byron Bay Bluesfest, Woodford Folk Festival, Gympie Muster, Urban Country Music and Tamworth festivals. The group is armed with a swag of new material ahead of its show at Southport Sharks. ‘‘We’ve been busy writing between festivals and travelling,’’ banjo player and lead vocalist Chris Eaton says. Round Mountain Girls ‘‘look and smell’’ like a bluegrass band but perform their own style of rock. The band also features fiddle player Rabbit Robinson, Chris Brooker on the mandolin and Rex Carter and Chris Willoughby.
Round Mountain Girls play Southport Sharks tomorrow at 8.30pm. Entry is free.
