A country girl with an international heart, Gleny Rae Virus is a multi-instrumentalist and educator who passionately believes music can build community and improve lives. She straddles a teaching and performance career just as easily as riding a quarter horse on a stock route. Gleny Rae Virus maintains her connection with rural Australia, playing gigs from outback shearing sheds and rodeos to international showcases in Nashville Tennessee and Austin Texas. Armed with a fiddle, accordion and an irreverent sense of humour, she performs and records with numerous Australian country roots bands at venues and festivals from Broome to Bourke, Darwin to Dubbo.
Gleny Rae Virus brings a special vibrance and humour to the stage, and wonderful musicianship with her bandmates and top class pickers Jacob McGuffie, Pete Fidler and Sam Martin.
