The Whistling Kites

The Whistling Kites is an Old-Time trio from Albany, Western Australia.

Their music features the driving rhythm and groove of fiddle, banjo and guitar. Their set takes audiences on a journey through pre-Bluegrass Appalachia, with a mix of lively fiddle tunes and melancholic bluegrass songs – all delivered with toe-tapping tempos and close vocal harmonies.

With respect for the origins of Old-Time music, The Whistling Kites take joy in sharing age-old American tunes and stories in an Australian context.
