The Colvin Brothers are Colin Weight (Guitar, Vocals) and Vinny Russell (Mandolin, Vocals), two Victorian pickers who came together through a mutual love of bluegrass, as well as country and old-time influences. For a long time they have been active the Victorian folk and bluegrass circuit, through their respective bands Nine Mile Creek and The Knott Family Band. Their performances as a duo draw from a broad span of original and traditional material, played with melodic picking, sung close harmonies and a joyful energy.
