It is foretold that on the second Wednesday of the ninth month, the sun shall sink in the West, the moon shall rise, the door to ancient Bunker on the hill shall swing open and the great legend of Wires and Wood will appear like a beacon in the night.
You can see the prophecy fulfilled for yourself, when the legendary bluegrass band Wires & Wood make one of their appearances, but only if you get off your chuff and get over there for yourself.
People still talk wistfully of their previous appearances as a band, and their Best Folk Album award is still up there on the wall. So help us welcome back to the bunker Micheal Young on mandolin, Dave Warren on flat top guitar, Bryan Christianson on banjo, and Garry Trotman on bass with their bluegrass harmonies and masterful playing.

All four sing, three write original material, and they are all masters of their instruments. They’re great festival guests – the life of the party at any jam session, a delight to watch on stage, and generally excellent to have around.
We’re talking about Nine Mile Creek the Melbourne bluegrass band, who are another international headline act coming for Kiwigrass 2019.
Formed up in 2013, Nine Mile Creek play traditional and original bluegrass. Not only are they talented musicians and performers, but they are also strong contributors to the bluegrass scene in Victoria, having had roles in organising multiple bluegrass festivals and bluegrass clubs. Kiwigrass is very excited to be hosting them on their first ever visit to New Zealand.
