About Us

  Rocky River Bush Band was originally formed in 1980 for the inaugural Laura Folk Fair in the Mid-North of South Australia ("...where the Rocky River flows"). The Band is actually based in the City of Onkaparinga (30-40 mins south of Adelaide) and has since developed into one of Australia's foremost folk bands, featuring some of South Australia's leading folk musicians.  



Rocky River has been
performing at
major events and festivals in Australia for 30 years and has five International tours to its credit.
