The South Carolina Broadcasters are the 'real deal' when it comes to Old-Time Bluegrass music, or 'primitive bluegrass', as they sometimes call it. Their razor sharp harmonies, exceptional multi-instrumentation, and fabulous song selection will have listeners riveted to their seats. Wherever they perform, audiences connect with the Broadcasters through their heartfelt songs and good old-fashioned entertainment.
Their material ranges from the Old-Time mountain music of Appalachia, through Carter Family country classics, and Cajun music, to original tunes that sound like they’ve come from the past.
The trio consists of David Sheppard (guitar and vocals), Ivy Sheppard (fiddle, banjo and vocals) and new band member, Jackson Cunningham from The Whitetop Mountaineers (mandolin, guitar and vocals).
This is the Broadcasters’ first Australian tour, playing the Dorrigo Folk and Bluegrass Festival, the Maldon Folk Festival and MountainGrass Festival, and a number of other gigs in NSW, Victoria and the ACT. However, Jackson has toured here a number of times with The Whitetop Mountaineers, playing all the major folk festivals including Port Fairy, the National, and Blue Mountains festivals, and numerous successful gigs, including a sell-out show at The Metropole, Katoomba on their last tour here in January 2017!
