Enjoy the sights of Bendigo’s architecturally stunning CBD from on board the sensationally restored vintage W Class tram, while being serenaded by two great acts.
Much loved UK singer songwriter & loop artist Geoffrey Williams dishes up some soulful delectations of 60s/70s influenced blues, rhythm and soul, all with a Caribbean twist!
His career highlights include:
5 albums on major labels such as Atlantic Records and EMI,
writing for artists such as Michael Jackson and Dusty Springfield,
playing at Wembley Arena, London Jazz Cafe and Montreux Jazz Festival.
performing at festivals such as Bendigo Blues & Roots, Woodford Folk, Castlemaine State
He co-directed The Boite Millenium Chorus’s ‘WINDRUSH’ in 2016 featuring self-penned songs about the story of his parents’ migration from the Caribbean to the UK and was also Australian National Busking Open Champion in 2017!
Expect to be mesmerised by sweet melodies and irresistible grooves – catch him and you won’t regret it!
Wilson & White:
Troy Wilson & Matthew White, Original Songs, Old-time, Jug Band, Pre-War Blues, Stomps and Rags. These acoustic artists will take you right back to the source to drink in the original sounds with resonator guitars and custom harmonicas. From fingerpicking to harmonica train impersonations from the 1930′s, with songs by Muddy Waters, Robert Johnson, Sonny Boy Williamson, Bo Carter and Blind Boy Fuller just to name a few. Wilson & White bring fun, surprise and laughter to their twist on the Juke Joint tradition, with evocative and powerful songs, from smoking ballads to juke joint boogies.
