"The Hollands! are a full-time Internationally touring family based in the US via Australia and frolic in the Americana Folk revival scene. They are seasoned concert performers, engaging audiences and rousing a sing-a long with their intimate merrymaking. By the end of their performance, audiences will feel like they are part of the band. This is the experience and magic that happens when The Hollands! come to town.
Jana Holland, originally from Michigan (USA), has traveled between 3 continents, with a love of "old timey" tunes and desire for the laymen to experience community through song. Her willingness to give any instrument a try has lead to lead offerings on the Mandolin, Banjo and Guitar. Vocally, Jana's deep minor tones and angelic voice extend a warm welcome to all who listen.
Delicate and natural harmonies are added by daughter and gifted vocalist, Graciana Holland. This darling is a true songwriter in her own right. She is stunning and immediately evokes a desire to hear more. She is also accomplished on the Ukulele, Piano and Guitar.
Craig, a native of Melbourne, VIC, began his music career playing punk rock, including a 7 year stint in Ballydowse, a Chicago-based Celtic Punk band recorded by famed indie producer, Steve Albini. Craig offers a hypnotic and rhythmic sound to The Hollands!
Named after the infamous Australia bush Poet, Banjo Patterson, the youngest Holland, "Banjo" is a force to reckoned with on the Cajon’ and other percussion instruments. His inventive beats compliment Craig's mesmerizing rhythms and together they offer the foundation for the female vocals to soar.
