Geoff Achison & The UK Souldiggers – Bangor-on-Dee Village Hall
Friday, 9th November
From Pete Evans:
To celebrate 15 years of great blues in the region we are really excited to present Australia’s top blues guitarist Geoff Achison. He is backed by three of the UK’s top musicians: Sam Kelly on drums (in recent years Sam played with Gary Moore), Paul Jobson on keyboards (ex-Trafficker) and Spy Austin on bass. Geoff plays extensively worldwide and came to prominence in 1995 with his first trip to the USA.
He represented the Melbourne Blues Society at the International Blues Challenge in Memphis and won the coveted Albert King Award for his guitar skills. He went on to accept an endorsement deal with the Gibson guitar company’s acoustic division. He formed a US based Souldiggers group in 1998 and recorded his third album ‘Gettin’ Evil’ in Portland, Oregon. Geoff has also conducted his guitar workshops at Jorma Kaukonen’s Fur Peace Ranch guitar camp in Ohio.
Come along then and listen to a great evening of soulful, rocking blues from an amazing guitarist with his crack band.
We are hoping to recreate the great early days of Hooker Blues Club at Wrexham Rugby Club by holding the gig at Bangor-on-Dee Village Hall with greater space for tables and easier seating.
Tickets are £12 and the doors are 8pm for a 9pm start.
