The Roweths have been researching and presenting the living tradition of Australian music for over thirty years, forging unique combinations of music, poetry and folklore. The last generation before the internet struck, the Roweths learned their trade directly from playing and speaking with the elder players of the Australian tradition, and exploring the older collected songs and tunes. These are the songs of the kitchen, the verandah, the shearers’ huts, the front bar of the local, and the campfire.
In performance the duo bring you powerful and delicate songs, room stopping recitations, and seamless combinations of new and old Australian material presented with the easy warmth of old-style bush entertainment. They also specialise in themed presentations forging unique combinations of music, folklore and social history.
