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.
Mikri Kompania came together at the end of 2015 in order to create a new musical group in the Greek community of Melbourne. Their aim is to deliver sounds and melodies from motherland Greece and the surrounding Balkans in their purest and more traditional form.
Five new faces as " Mikri Kompania " want to express themselves through music in their own refreshing way, with a desire to resurrect the memories of the older generations and give a breath from the past to the newer ones.
