The founding members of “The Navs” first met in 1979. Since then, The Inland Navigators have enjoyed over 25 years of performing at Bush Dances, themed events, celebrations, corporate events and major tourist attractions.

The iconic band are known to many for their TV appearances on Channel Nine’s Morning Show and their rollicking performances at The Vinegar Hill Woolshed, Darling Harbour and The Rocks. With songs of shearers, farmers, stockmen, convicts and the old Sydney scene, and a mixed bag of Celtic, European and American tunes, The Inland Navigators give a true representation of Australia’s musical heritage.

The Inland Navigators have recently recorded their second album “On the Verandah”, which features a great mix of traditional and contemporary songs and tunes.

This is the best collection of Australian folk music I have heard in a dog’s age.R. J. Hibberd, Eureka Council Website

The traditional dual lead instrumentation of fiddle (Barbara Webb) and concertina (Greg Wilson) is ably supported by the rhythmic guitar of Steve Errey and bass guitar of Tony Moffatt. Lead singer Eric Pellinkhof is a lagerphone legend. This bush instrument was originally made from beer bottle caps nailed to a piece of wood. Eric has perfected a contemporary version, fashioned from aluminium in the shape of Australia! To see and hear him in full cry, beating the lagerphone in time with a jig is awe-inspiring, to say the least.

All the musicians are also fine vocalists and in songs such as “Poor Ned”, about Ned Kelly, the five voices blend superbly. Little wonder, the international tourists, for whom the band regularly plays, are so impressed.

Bush Music comes from a deep interest in Australia’s musical history, together with a love of modern Australia Country & Folk Music. This gives them a repertoire as diverse as the traditional Bush Ballads, Colonial Dance Tunes, Irish, Scottish & American Tunes and songs from respected Australian artists such as Slim Dusty, John Williamson, Mike McClellan and Paul Kelly. The band recently celebrated their 25th anniversary and are still going strong.
