THE BACKSLIDERS PLAYING AT MEENIYAN

Music event

APRIL
Sat 27th
The Backsliders

Formed in 1986 by guitarist Dom Turner, Backsliders quickly became festival favourites, a tag they carry to this day, almost thirty years later. The line-up boasts the drumming talents of Rob Hirst, along with the alternating harmonica attack of Ian Collard, Joe Glover and Broderick Smith backing Hirst and Turner to the hilt.
It’s a lineup that carries serious weight, not just on the Australian blues scene, but across genres and styles the world over.
These guys are renowned for captivating live shows – an eclectic mix of blues styles moving from driving delta blues riffs and jungle-like rhythms to ‘Piedmont’ blues influenced ‘all-acoustic’ unplugged treatments of 1920’s songs by blues heroes such as Mississippi Fred McDowell and Robert Johnson.
