The Raglins perform contemporary Australian folk music as you've never heard it before.
They take traditional ballads from original sources, source recordings and old books, and create contemporary folk music which is fresh, beautiful and uniquely Australian.
With rocking rhythmic guitar and stunning vocals, The Raglins concentrate on songs worth remembering.
The duo is made up of award winning guitarist Robert Hillman (Port Fairy Emerging Artist of the Year) and classically trained vocalist Hannah Pelka-Caven (B.Mus, Liz Johnston Memorial Award for Vocal Excellence). The Raglins were runners up in the Folk Alliance Youth Awards for both 2013 and 2014.
Together they have performed at Cygnet Folk Festival (Tas), the National Celtic Festival (Vic), Fleurieu Folk Festival (SA), the Blue Mountails Music Festival (NSW), Illawarra Folk Festival (NSW) and the National Folk Festival (ACT). They were also one of the Featured Acts for the Australian Folk Alliance Conference held in Melbourne in 2013 and Australian Music Week 2017.
Their EP 'Somewhere' was launched to acclaim at the National Folk Festival 2014.
