The Lurkers

With a line-up of banjo, double bass, guitar and occasional mandolin and harmonica, The Lurkers are influenced musically by American hillbilly and old timey music, and influenced politically by the likes of Woody Guthrie, Joe Hill, Pete Seeger and Berthold Brecht.

They draw on the tradition of artists and musicians who use their music for political agitation. All three Lurkers share the songwriting, which means every set has a variety of styles from blues to hillbilly to mountain music or traditional folk. All three Lurkers sing, sharing lead vocals and using the close harmonies common in bluegrass.

The Lurkers are based in Sydney, Australia.
