Having performed together for over 20 years, the Davidson Brothers have firmly carved their contemporary acoustic style into the Australian music scene. Hamish and Lachlan Davidson grew up in the rural Victorian town of Yinnar. Raised in a musical family, the brothers began playing music and performing from a young age. With seven albums under their belt, they have built the reputation of being one of Australia’s hottest bluegrass acts – multi instrumentalists on banjo, fiddle, mandolin and great entertainers who deliver high powered acoustic music at its best.
Australian Country Music Award winners in 2009, 2010 and 2012, Hamish and Lachlan Davidson are “the best young bluegrass pickers we have seen for a long while in Australia and a very exciting live act,” according to Troy Cassar-Daley.
In recent years, the Davidson Brothers have become regulars on many National festivals as well as touring Australia extensively, Europe and the USA. They appeared on the Ryman in Nashville at the 2010 International Bluegrass Music Awards as presenters and showcased at IBMA’s World of Bluegrass in 2004 and 2009 and the 2011 European World of Bluegrass in the Netherlands.
Winner of multiple Australian National Bluegrass Championship titles on fiddle, banjo and mandolin, the Davidson Brothers have established the Australian Youth Bluegrass Scholarship to encourage excellence and leadership in bluegrass amongst young musicians. They’ve been recognised as finalists in the Most Outstanding Musicians category of the 2010 Melbourne Prize for Music, the Davidson Brothers have also performed on many national television programs including Good Morning Australia.
After recording four albums in the US, Hamish & Lachlan knew it was time to record in their native country with their live band. 2014 will see the release of their brand new album ‘Wanderlust’ featuring ten original tracks recorded in Melbourne, Australia featuring Jacob McGuffie on acoustic guitar and Louis Gill on upright bass.
