Southern Highlands Australia Day free concert – Music in the Vines at Joadja Winery

Southern Highlands Australia Day free concert – Music in the Vines at Joadja Winery

One of Australia’s most awarded Blues group ‘Backsliders’ will be appearing at Joadja Vineyard’s Music in the Vines in January 2014 bringing a new and dynamic dimension to the Joadja series of winery concerts.

The 2011 ARIA Blues and Roots nominees and I-Tunes Australia Album of the Year winner have been playing and recording for 25 years.  Their latest release ‘Starvation Box’ is heralded as their best to date and has been described as sounding like ‘hungry youth Deep South’. Their sound melds driving Delta and Mississippi Hill Country blues sounds with original 21st century new blues anthems.

The Backsliders blues band

Slide Guitarist and multi-string instrumentalist, songwriter and vocalist Dom Turner is the founding member of the group. His influences are many and varied – a blend of delta blues, piedmont blues, rock, dub and sounds of Asia.  He has appeared on ABC Radio, presented music workshops at festivals and universities and has toured the USA & Mexico as a solo artist.

The Group has appeared at The Basement, made numerous television appearances in Australia and are regulars at major Australian Festivals.

Drum and percussion virtuoso and songwriter Rob Hurst, a name synonymous with Australian music and has been with Backsliders for 12 years.   Joining Dom and Rob are two of Australia’s most innovative harmonica players Brod Smith and ARIA Award winner Ian Collard.

Joadja’s Music in the Vines is proud to present this celebrated group for the first time.
