Iconic Australian country music duo to perform in Rocky

RENOWNED for their distinctive vocal harmony sound, The Howie Brothers, John and Graeme have cemented themselves as one of Australia's leading country music and easy listening acts.

John and Graeme have been performing and recording for over 30 years, playing a variety of instruments including piano, guitar, accordion, mandolin, ukulele and drums.

They are both dedicated songwriters and have recorded many of their own songs over the years.

The brothers will visit Rockhampton on Sunday as part of their tour schedule, to play for music-lovers at St Mary's Hall, for an afternoon of harmonic tunes.

Originally, as members of the band 1901, the Howie Brothers won three Gold Guitar Awards at the Australian Country Music Awards in Tamworth, including two Group of the Year awards (1980 and 1982).

They've recorded more than 30 albums. The pair love performing and are based in Melbourne, touring throughout Australia on several major tours each year.

Since 1995 John Howie has been running successful sightseeing coach tours with a focus on music, especially in the evenings. John runs tours to Ireland, Scotland, America, Europe, New Zealand, Canada and the Aussie outback.
