Three-times Golden Guitar Award winners, 2 times Australian Folk Music and Victoria Award winners, The Weeping Willows are a couple of old souls steeped in bluegrass tradition and draped in Gothic Americana imagery. They regale their audiences with stories of sunshine and romance, the lost and the lonely, the heartsick and the harried, God and the Devil, murder and decay, all expressed in beautiful harmonies with skilful guitar playing. Real music.

2017 – 2023 saw them nominated for 14 Golden Guitar Awards, 7 Australian Folk Music Awards, 4 Country Music Channel awards, 2 National Live Music awards, performing an official showcase at the Americana Fest in the USA and appearances at Maverick Festival, Port Fairy Folk Festival, National Folk Festival, Queenscliff Music Festival, Out On The Weekend and the Australian Music Americana Honours.

They released their celebrated album, Till The North Wind Blows, in 2012. They followed it up with the critically acclaimed Before Darkness Comes A’Callin’ in 2016 (4* Rollin’ Stone, 4* The Australian, 4* The Music) then their third studio album, You Reap What You Sow, charted at #3 on the iTunes Country Albums chart behind behind Dolly Parton and Casey Barnes. That album featured their Golden Guitar Instrumental Of The Year Award winning single Prelude.

The Weeping Willows light a path through the thickets and brambles of a fraught world, excavating and illuminating profound human truths in signature, human truths. Music that will always delight.
