Country music at its finest

The Wolfe Brothers.

By Romy Stephens

There’s nothing quite like the sound of authentic country music inspired by a farm upbringing.

That’s what the York on Lilydale stage in Mount Evelyn will be treated to next year, as The Wolfe Brothers come to town.

Off the back of an extremely successful year, the Tasmanian-born group has recently extended its No Sad Song tour.

“It’s been the dream year, it really has,” band member Tom Wolfe said.

“Purely just because the amount of support we’ve received.

“We go to play a show and there’s still new people coming every time, that for us is so exciting.

“We pride ourselves on our live shows.”

The Wolfe Brothers is made up of brothers Nick and Tom Wolfe and Brodie Rainbird.

Both Nick and Tom grew up on a fourth generation raspberry farm in rural Tasmania.

The group first rose to fame after it headed to the mainland and came runner-up on Australia’s Got Talent in 2012.

After years of hard work, things are finally starting to pay off.

This year, they have toured across Australia with Lee Kernaghan, travelled overseas to join Canadian superstar Gord Bamford and won numerous Golden Guitars awards.

But despite all the fame and excitement, the members haven’t lost sight of their country roots.

In fact, Tom said their entire music collection provides a sense of their upbringing.

“The family home, it’s raised three generations of Wolfe’s,” Tom said.

“There’s a lot of history there and it’s in a lot of our songs.

“It’s in everything, whether it be as direct as songs such as Aint Seen It Yet and Country Heart.”

Tom said fans can expect an action-packed performance and perhaps a surprise at the York on Lilydale performance.

“We are recording so we might even try and road test a few songs,” he said.

The Wolfe Brothers will perform at The York on 13 March.
