Round Mountain Girls
The last 2 years has been an exhilarating trip for the Round Mountain Girls and their ever-growing band of followers. Proudly independent, the Round Mountain Girls have performed at some of Australia’s largest and coolest festivals. Byron Bay’s Blues Festival, Woodford Folk Fest, Caloundra’s Music Festival, Gympie Muster, Central Coast Country Music Festival, Neurum Creek Folk Fest, Gold Coast Acoustics, Wintermoon Festival, Urban Country Music Festival, Mullum Music and Tamworth’s Country Music Festival.
Fiddler Rabbit Robinson and RMG took out “Best Band Featuring A Fiddle Player” at the 2012 Golden Fiddle Awards in Tamworth.
Robinson then went on to win the “Lifetime Achievement” award for services to fiddledom and also “Best Fiddle Teacher”. Round Mountain Girls have always known it but now they can safely say they have the “best fiddle player in Australia” in their band!!!
The excitement of a Round Mountain Girls live show is why this band is special.
There are lots of instrument changes, different sounds and personalities, ebbs and flows and they simply exude a positive energy. They are a feel good band that make people want to dance and smile. They look and smell like a bluegrass band. They harmonise. They play fiddles, mandolins, banjos and acoustic guitars…. but don’t be fooled – Round Mountain Girls are actually a rock band and anyone who has witnesses RMG at full bore will feel the need to repeat the dose.
One Step Closer is the bands current album. It is uplifting by nature and highlights the band’s musicianship and songwriting talents. Featured on the album are Four-part Harmonies, Banjo, Fiddle, Acoustic Guitars, Mandolin, Didgeridoo, a bucket-load of percussive instruments, Bass and Drums. One Step Closer has received national air-play through ABC National radio, Country Music Channel, RAGE and Channel 10’s Landed music.
This is one of the most brilliant, interesting and dynamic bands on the festival circuit at the moment. Folk On!
