The Paverty Bush Band is Canberra's premium bush band. Paverty started in the 1970s 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.
