After a long COVID induced hiatus, Western Australian bluegrass band The Lost Followers are back at Holy Smokes in Fremantle for their traditional Fourth of July celebration.
Coming up on Southern style on Tuesday July 7th will be an interview with Greg Cahill, banjo player band leader of Special Consensus.
Pepita Emmerichs has been announced as this year’s recipient of the Australian Bluegrass Scholarship.
The show was the band’s first performance since the Covid isolation and had the feel of a reunion, even though they hadn’t broken up. It was also the re-opening of the venue, a combination of three hundred-year-old clubs in a purpose-built club room, which had only been open for a month before the closures.
