WOLFE BROTHERS ROCK TAMWORTH!

The Wolfe Brothers have been rocking out at the Tamworth Country Music Festival this year! Performing to a large crowd, their country rock tracks had people on the dance floor grooving to their catchy tunes.

The Wolfe Brothers have burst into 2014 full steam ahead with their ‘eye of the tiger’ approach to chasing their dream. The band continues to ride the wave that started for them in mid-2012 when they captured the attention of the nation and were voted into second place in the final of the nationally televised show Australia’s Got Talent.  None of this was overnight success. The band has certainly earned their stripes over the years. The Wolfe Brothers consists of two brothers, Nick and Tom Wolfe, and their two best mates, guitarist Brodie Rainbird and drummer Casey Kostiuk.

For many years, from 1949 to 1973, he worked in outback postings as a patrol officer, reserve superintendent and teacher. He was also an outstanding sportsman. In 1974 he commenced a new life as entertainer, writer, historian and TV presenter. He has produced 30 albums of music, mainly his own songs, covering a wide range of observation of the people of Australia. The albums are strong sellers, as he is one of the few artists able to bridge the gap between country and folk music. He has written many books and travels extensively throughout Australia, entertaining and researching new material. His first academic degree, a BA, was achieved the hard way, in the bush, studying by the light of Tilley lamps. In 1996 he completed his MA with a study of a series of killings in Arnhem Land in the 1930s.
