    Trev Warner is a true bluegrass and country music legend, and Adelaide’s very own pioneer in the genre.

    With over three decades of experience under his belt, Trev has become a household name in Australian bluegrass circles. He’s a Hall of Fame inductee and three-time Australian bluegrass banjo champion, and has even won two Golden Guitar Awards for best original instrumental. While Trev’s talents on guitar and banjo are undeniable, it’s his fiddle playing that truly sets him apart from the rest. And as a bonus, he’s also a skilled Dobro player.

    Nick Cawthorne is one of the most seasoned guitarists and singers in Australia, and he’s been playing bluegrass and country/blues music since his teenage years.

    Wielding a vintage ‘cannon’ guitar made by his late friend Brian Degruchy, Nick’s playing is a throwback to the classic, traditional sound of the genre.

    Geoff Bridgland is a straight old-style bluegrass player with a passion for the genre that spans over five decades.

    He’s heavily influenced by the likes of Earl Scruggs, Doug Dillard, and JD Crowe, and is also a talented Old-Time fiddler. His harmonies join those of Trev, Nick, and Stephen in a way that completes the band’s classic bluegrass sound. And, when it comes to twin-fiddle tunes, he and Trev have a long list of favorites that always get the crowd going.

    Stephen Loss may be the newest member of Bluegrass Junction, but he’s no stranger to the genre.

    With a passion for bluegrass music that began 15 years ago, Stephen quickly became a multi-talented instrumentalist, with a particular skill for bass, guitar, and mandolin. His contribution to the band’s sound cannot be overstated, filling out the bottom end with his driving bass and lending his voice to all singing parts, from high tenor to bass.

    Each and every member of this legendary band is a gifted singer in their own right, but when they come together in two, three, or four-part harmony, the result is nothing short of magical. It’ll make your heart sing and your soul soar!

    What sets Bluegrass Junction apart from the rest, though, is their commitment to honoring the roots of the bluegrass genre. They’re the only Australian bluegrass band that regularly features twin-fiddle instrumental numbers, paying homage to the traditional old-time country music that pre-dated bluegrass and was a staple of Bill Monroe’s music. This is bluegrass music the way it was meant to be played, with reverence and respect for the past, but with an energy and enthusiasm that’s all their own.

    Bluegrass Junction is a group of true bluegrass veterans, who know the genre inside and out. They play with an undeniable passion and love for the music that shines through every performance, ensuring that everyone in the audience has a good time, whether you’re a die-hard bluegrass fan or a newcomer to the genre.

    So join us for a night of world-class music that will leave you tapping your feet, humming along, and grinning from ear to ear. Get your tickets now and come see Bluegrass Junction at the Victor Harbor Town Hall on August 12th!
