Paverty Bush Band, Canberra's premier bush band, has entertained audiences in our region since the early 1970s.

Paverty plays Australian folk music - an eclectic mix of traditional and original songs, ballads and instrumentals with country, blues, rock, bluegrass, skiffle and jug band influences.

Paverty has numerous recordings available: see CDs for sale.

Paverty started in 1970 as Franklyn B Paverty and the Platt Valley Crooners. Since then, Paverty has been playing for concerts, folk festivals, bush dances, weddings, parties, school fund-raisers, corporate functions, mostly in Canberra and the surrounding region.

Paverty acknowledges the Ngunnawal and Ngambri peoples, the traditional owners of the land on which we live and work. We recognise their continuing connection to land, water and community and we pay our respects to their Elders, past, present and future.
