The Ballarat Grammar Bluegrass Band first played to an enthusiastic Jamboree audience in 2017 and we will be welcoming them back this year. The band was established in 2012 and plays a mix of traditional and modern contemporary music in a bluegrass style. The band is led by music teacher and musician Heath Joyce, and is made up of a changing array of senior school students. The group rehearses weekly and has enthusiastically adopted the traditional music, while putting a bluegrass spin on a number of contemporary hits. This year’s members are: Lucas Burke (fiddle), Reuben Rasmussen (guitar/lead vocal), Aeron Johns (fiddle), Ethan Johns (guitar), Henry McNeill (guitar), Thomas Burnett (banjo), Gillian Chataway (bass), Heath Joyce (teacher/mandolin).
