Event details

Melbourne’s band of knockabouts, The Stetson Family, are at the forefront of Australia’s progressive bluegrass scene. Their songs dig deep into the roots of bluegrass, folk and alt-country to deliver a fresh twist on a timeless sound.

The Stetson’s first release, 2008’s Hey Sister Mary Where’d You Get That Gun gained recognition by being included in some of the year’s ‘Best of Lists’ including #1 Best Roots/ Alt-Country Album on BayFm’s Mystery Train. Some of their music was also picked up by SBS/Renegade Productions and used in the documentary ‘Last Chance Saloon’. Their follow-up album, The Devil in His Sunday Best was described by Rhythms Magazine as “A landmark Australian roots album for 2011.”
