Burrinja Blues and Roots

Local blues legends Dave Diprose and Doc White have re-launched the popular Blues and Roots at Burrinja.
 
SATURDAY 15 August
Tabasco Tom Rogerson
From Brooklyn to Upwey and altar boy to outlaw, Tabasco has played with just about anybody who matters (and many who don't).

Tom was introduced to jazz and swing by his father who took him to see jazz greats like Dizzy Gillespie & Buddy Rich. Throw in influences of rockabilly, The Everly Brothers, Doc Watson and Mississippi John Hurt and you have a style that Tom affectionately calls “Eclectic Soup”. Tom has shared the stage with Bonnie Raitt, John Hartford, Sarah Vaughan, Frank Vignola and Vinny Raniolo. Tom will be performing with a hot band of veteran Australian music icons.


Tim Hulsman
Tim delivers a raw brand of slide guitar playing with brutish soul, delicate finesse and stomping, triumphant revelry. A raw and vulnerable performer who opens his heart and mind and bares his soul, through beautiful, evocative and dynamic music. He narrates an autobiographical journey through a rollercoaster-life, filled with positive imagery and pearls of wisdom.
Tim will be accompanied by Karl Bentley o  drums.
