Fiddle Tunes Band
plays for Australian Bush, Irish and Scottish dancing, and for those who enjoy listening to traditional music and song. The band performs lively traditional dance music, beautiful slow airs, popular ballads and humorous songs. An extensive repertoire includes lilting jigs, driving reels, polkas and hornpipes, swinging old-time tunes, graceful waltzes and mazurkas. Our music is guaranteed to brighten your gathering - be it a festival, wedding, birthday party, special dinner or other private function. It will enhance the enjoyment and success of your event.

If you fancy having a go at bush dancing, band members can demonstrate easy dances, walk you through the steps and then call the dances for you.

Fiddle Tunes Band is:
Shayne Kerr - fiddle, 'Stroh' viol, button accordion, musical saw, vocals, dance demonstrator,
Roz Kerr - mandolin, tenor banjo, recorder, whistle, spoons, dance caller and demonstrator,
