Valley Bluegrass: Hard-driving South Island Bluegrass

Valley Bluegrass band

Valley Bluegrass (New Zealand)

Valley Bluegrass is Dunedin’s pre-eminent bluegrass outfit.

Modelled on the great American bands in the style of Flatt and Scruggs, Valley Bluegrass play hard-driving rollicking bluegrass led by banjo, fiddle, guitar, upright bass with some occasional Dobro and mandolin.

Playing close in to a single condenser microphone in the old style, Valley Bluegrass is both visually and harmonically a rich experience.

Authentic Bluegrass, that’s the promise of Valley Bluegrass.
