Treat for lovers of blue­grass

The Gold Coast Bulletin - Play Magazine - - WHAT'S ON -

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.
