The Davidson Brothers

Hamish and Lachlan Davidson are considered two of Australia's most highly driven and well-respected bluegrass musicians. Professionally known as the Davidson Brothers, they were raised in the rural Victorian town of Yinnar and began actively performing, composing, recording and releasing albums in 1998. They've toured the United States, Europe, appeared at the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville and toured their band extensively across Australia.


Mostly self-taught, multi-Instrumentalists, both Hamish (fiddle, banjo, guitar, dobro, vocals) and Lachlan (mandolin, fiddle, guitar, vocals) became in-demand session musicians for recording, touring and television before they finished high school, and as competitive teenagers, they went on to win National Bluegrass Championship titles. Together, the Davidson Brothers, as Independent artists, have had top 10 Country Radio Singles, reached the ARIA Country Albums Chart and established the Australian Bluegrass Scholarship in 2011 to enhance a young culture and enthusiasm around acoustic music


After eighteen consecutive years performing the Tamworth Country Music Festival, four albums recorded in Nashville and three Golden Guitar Awards later, Hamish and Lachlan Davidson have shifted their focus to expand and diversify their audience.


Culturally, the brothers have a uniquely Australian light-hearted outlook on life which they use to showcase their musical ability to all unsuspecting audiences from small regional towns of populations less than 100 to tackling the distinguished city venues. 


Well known for their contemporary acoustic style and determination, the Davidson Brothers are destined to have a long standing career on the Australian music scene.
