About An Evening Concert with Bluegrass Parkway
Bluegrass Parkway, led by renowned mandolin maker Paul Duff is Australia’s longest, continually active, bluegrass band. Highly respected in the bluegrass world, they regularly charm festival goers around the globe with their toe-tapping music.
Bluegrass and country music share the same roots, originating from early American folk and mountain music, mixed with influences of blues.
Bluegrass is traditionally played on acoustic stringed instruments - fiddle, five-string banjo, guitar, mandolin and upright bass.
At any Bluegrass Parkway performance you can enjoy bluegrass music 1940s style - strong three and four part harmonies - as well as witnessing some pretty fancy footwork!
Bluegrass Parkway is still busy building on their 30 plus years of performance experience.
A constant striving for authenticity, a deep respect for the music and an attitude of ‘it’s gotta be fun!’ have combined to strengthen the band’s reputation as Australia’s most entertaining and experienced bluegrass band.
Manjimup Bluegrass & Old Time Music Weekend is thrilled to have Bluegrass Parkway featuring at this year’s event.
