The Timbers (SA)

The Timbers’ thumping rhythms and big misty mountain melodies will cast you away to a sweaty, smoky, melting-pot of folk, roots and Celtic bushman brassy punk. They rollick and hammer their way through live gigs with abundant energy and have become festival favourites throughout Australia. This Adelaide-based band has an infectious desire to take their audience on a wild ride of non-stop musical passion with no limits.
Hailing from far away lands such as Mount Gambier, Tasmania, Ireland, and the Adelaide Hills, The Timbers have worked tirelessly together to create a unique high energy musical experience not purely confined to alternative folk. With songs soaked in male vocal harmonies, awash with intricate banjo and mandolin licks, soaring trumpet lines, on a foundation of solid piano and all held together by pounding dance rhythms from foot percussion, there is surely something for everyone in The Timbers’ repertoire.
