RhodeWorks are an award-winning bluegrass folk band who play fast paced, high energy folk music, presenting a set of traditional and well-loved bluegrass alongside their original material. Rounding the package, the three brothers present soulful vocal harmonies and fiery instrumentals. Laurence (17), Sam (15) and Nate (12) are largely self-taught multi-instrumentalists, who have wowed audiences throughout NZ and Australia. As well as their dedication to creating unique roots-conscious music they love nothing more than heading to the workshop to craft their own instruments.


Youth Band

In a two workshop series, learn how these boys started on their musical journey and how it has evolved into something unexpected. Bring your voice and your instrument of choice and join in with some songs taught by the boys. The second workshop will refine the songs taught in the first. Anyone who missed the first workshop can come along and catch up. These songs will be performed at the ‘Youth Concert’.
