The Paverty Bush Band is Canberra's premium bush band. Paverty started in 1970 as Franklyn B Paverty and the Platt Valley Crooners. Since then, Paverty has been playing for concerts, festivals, bush dances (and dances generally), weddings, parties, fund-raisers, events, etc. in Canberra and the surrounding region.

Paverty plays mostly Australian folk music: a mix of folk songs, ballads and music with some country, blues, rock and skiffle influences.

Paverty had numerous recordings available: see CDs for sale.
