Meet The Band

Annie is one of the band's co-founders. She  is the 'up-front' person on stage and is one of Australia's best dance callers. The percussion instruments she plays include lagerphone, bodhran, teponatzli and washboard.

The other co-founder, Pete plays button accordion and anglo concertina and is the main organiser and contact person for Rocky River. He also runs the South Coast Folk Club and when not performing he can be found at one of Adelaide's many sessions.

As well as being a fine singer of Australian songs, Henk is an excellent musician playing fiddle, banjo and guitar. He is also a real 'bushy' from the South-East of South Australia.

There is something very special about the way Kate Delaney sings. Her sweet voice with its Celtic lilt is attractive and appealing, urging the listener to stop doing other things and listen with care to the beauty and sincerity of the lyrics and the pictures they evoke.

Ron is one of South Australia's most respected folk singers and musicians. Apart from possessing a great voice singing either lead vocals or harmonies he is a very fine guitarist. Ron toured Europe with Rocky River in 1991 and we are thrilled to have him with us in 2001!

Ron Higgins

Fritz is (in our humble opinion) one of the finest shanty singers to be heard anywhere! He is actually based in Fremantle, Western Australia and joins the band when we go on tour overseas and to major Australian folk festivals - lucky us!
