Sad passing of a fiddling icon

It is with great sorrow we announce the passing of a fiddling icon, especially to country and bluegrass fans here in Australia and New Zealand.

Colleen Trenwith, along with her husband Paul, were founding members of world famous NZ outfit ‘The Hamilton County Bluegrass Band’ but here in Australia, they were best known for their performances and recordings with the legendary Slim Dusty.

Over the last decade or so she has been a much loved teacher of fiddle at the East Tennessee State University.

Trenwith, 74, passed away January 24, 2021, at her home in New Zealand, after a short battle with pancreatic cancer.

Rest in Peace
