Live Music with ' The Water Runners ' at the Tathra Hotel on Sat 16th and Sun 17th March 4:30 - 7:30pm.
The Water Runners hail from around Kiama, NSW and blend great harmonies, witty stage banter and quality musicianship to deliver an entertaining show of Bluegrass-infused contemporary Australian folk. They have played at venues, events and festivals, and wowed audiences from the Illawarra, to the Shoalhaven, Sydney, the Snowy and beyond with their high energy performances. A mix of both experienced and talented young players, they combine banjo, mandolin, fiddle, double-bass and percussion with powerful vocals in songs about love, loss and local legends.
The Water Runners draw on a diverse range of influences from traditional bluegrass artists like Bill Monroe to modern bluegrass and folk artists like Lindsay Lou, Mustered Courage, The Starboard Cannons, The Morrisons and Paul Kelly, with a little bit of country and rockabilly thrown in. In 2018, the Water Runners were awarded a Kiama Council Community Cultural Grant which has been used to record their second album of original music, ‘Point of No Return’, to be released in 2019.
