Grafia Folk Rock Band will play an eclectic mix of originals and covers from 60's 70's contemporary folk and Irish catalogues. Members of the band include Keith Austin on keyboards and bass, Stephan Schulz on violin and recorders, John Jukes on drums and Rob Maunsell on vocals, acoustic guitar and harmonica. Each of the three sets played will include easy listening and danceable tunes.

"Grafia" can be likened to a three-legged stool. The three core musicians, Rob Maunsell, Keith Austin and Stephan Schulz are the supporting legs, the music they make, the seat.

Rob writes the songs and sings, plays acoustic rhythm guitar and harmonica. Musical direction, keyboard and bass playing are Keith's domains. He also sings back-up vocals and produced the album.

Stephan plays violin and recorder weaving his improvisational magic. The music that makes up the seat of the Grafia stool is a collection of original lyrically based songs which have an attractive complexity. They fit comfortably in the Folk Rock genre. The band members come from diverse musical backgrounds. Stephan, the most devoted to the discipline of classical music, pursued violin and composition studies at University, now applies himself to the full-time teaching of music at a secondary school.

Keith played classical piano for many years before discovering the challenges and joys of playing in rock bands. He has also developed an expertise in repairing and tuning pianos/keyboards, composing and arranging music in several genres. Rob has brought his love of blues, folk and rock music to the task of writing their original songs. He performs them with passion and personal expression, adding rhythm guitar and uplifting harmonica playing.

The musical palate Grafia has created offers a delightful experience, the stories depicted in the songs speak for themselves, the instrumentals are enticing.

There's a lovely social "good time" atmosphere in the main bar at T.R. with our gracious hostess Marilla and her cheerful assistants attending. Bar food is delicious and good value for money, and there is an interesting range of beers, wines and top shelf spirits available.

Please come on down to the liveliest bar on Main St. Greytown and let us help you let go of your worries and start your weekend with some toe-tapping musical fun.
