The Blues Preachers – Brother John on guitar, banjo and vocals, and Captain Bluetongue on harmonica, mountain dulcimer and vocals – will take you to another place and time, somewhere between 1920 and 1940.

Their music paints a landscape of pre-war struggle and determination with sounds reminiscent of the Deep South. They will make you want to get up and dance with their joyful country and ragtime blues, and send a shiver down your spine with their atmospheric feels, echoing and paying homage to the sacred sounds of early artists such as Blind Willie Johnson.

Their 2008 album ‘Next Stop Beulah Land’ and their highly regarded 2009 release ‘Dry Long So’ showcase the talents of the Preachers.

After highly acclaimed performances at The Woodford Folk Festival, The Australian Blues Festival (Goulburn), The Blue Mountains Folk Festival, The West Coast Blues Festival and The East Coast Blues Festival, The Blues Preachers have secured a reputation as one of the best acoustic blues and roots acts in the country.

When: Friday 21 August 2015
Time: 8pm
Where: Harmonie German Club
