Big enough to be a netball team but small enough to be a good luck charm

BSM don’t look like your typical Australian country band…. Seven women, a kaleidoscope of harmonies and one trumpet – chaotic, earthy and real. Big Sky Mountain make no apologies for not having an obscure cool edge, they are what they are and they love what they do. 

With a sound reminiscent of The Eagles, Fleetwood Mac and a pinch of Casey Musgraves, these ladies can sing and they’ll hold you to ransom with their jaw dropping harmonies, driving rhythm section and fierce musicality.

The band has played at the Perisher Peak Music, Girrakool Blues, and the Tamworth Country Music Festivals completed regional tours, become regulars on the Sydney live music scene and were invited to perform at the 2020 National Folk Festival in Canberra.

Traditional Graffiti has risen, phoenix-like out of the ashes of the Wheeze & Suck Band. The band members are: 

Ian "The Pump" Macintosh – slide, acoustic & electric guitars, melodeon, vocals. 
John "Johnny Red Tips" Milce – percussion. 
Nigel "Muddy" Walters – cello mandolin, mandolin, mouth organ, vocals. 
The Shack's own Rhonda ‘Harmony’ Mawer – vocals, castanets, guitar, whistles. 
Clive McFarlan – guitar, vocals. 

The Trad’s have performed at various Folk Festivals in Australia, plus Folk Club and pub appearances. The band perform a mix of English traditional and contemporary folk music, (including some favourites from the Wheezers repertoire), and American roots / blues music, including a number of self-penned compositions.
