Chris Wilson performing Livin' In A Hard, Hard Land
Two of Melbourne’s premier blues & roots acts team up for a jam session of enormous proportions, and when Chris Wilson and Geoff Achison join forces anything is possible.
When they perform, Achison and Wilson deliver a sensational on-stage rave-up of each of their original works, and some good old standard blues.
They are known for gut-bucket blues, driving funk and balls to the wall roots-rock.
Wilson has been an essential part of blues and rock music in Australia since taking the stage with the Sole Twisters 20 ago.
Stints with Harum Scarum and Paul Kelly & the Coloured Girls followed, and the end of the 80s saw Wilson as one of our finest vocalists, harmonica players and songwriters, fronting the superb Crown of Thorns.
Achison taught himself blues guitar in country Victoria, and arrived in Melbourne in the early ‘90s with little more than the Gibson Les Paul that had cost him his last dollar.
A respected songwriter and bandleader, he is best known for his unique guitar style which has won him fans around the globe.
Achison and Wilson will be backed by the driving force of The Souldiggers and Wilson’s side guitar player Shannon Bourne.
