We combine in two concerts this year with our bluegrass friends in a repeat of our successful collaboration at the 1812 Theatre in Upper Ferntree Gully.
COOLGRASS is a renowned 4-piece instrumental and vocal ensemble. They take the traditional bluegrass line-up of banjo, mandolin, guitar and double bass and then make musical mischief with it.  Their light-hearted take on music of all styles has won fans across Australia and New Zealand.
