The Davidson Brothers, Australia’s top bluegrass group, picked up three more major awards last week, this time at the Tasmanian Independent Artist Recognition Awards. Keep in mind that these were not acoustic, folk or bluegrass honors; they are inclusive of all independently produced and financed music makers in Australia.
The boys were awarded trophies for Album of the Year for Here To Stay, and for two of the tracks on the CD: Group-Duo for My Heart Can’t Believe My Eyes, and Instrumental for OMFG.
They tour extensively across the continent, and have also traveled to the US and Europe to perform, including a career highlight presenting at the 2010 IBMA Awards in Nashville.
Here to Stay has now picked up 7 awards from Australian music associations since it was released during the summer of 2011 (out of 17 nominations).
Well done, boys!
