Based in Gerringong & Kiama, NSW, The Water Runners play a high energy blend of Australian folk, performing original songs with influences from bluegrass, country and rockabilly as well as the work of contemporary folk artists like Paul Kelly. The Water Runners have played festivals, pubs, clubs and events from Sydney to the Snowy and in 2018 will be recording an album under the guiding hand of Australian Bluegrass legend, John Kane.
