The mighty Blackwood River that runs through Bridgetown is an impressive force of nature when it floods, and so too are Blackwood Rising in full flight. They’re a happy go lucky blues duo who play a raucous mix of originals and covers which all get slathered in bluesy goodness. Fingerpicked tunes with bottleneck slide, various guitar tunings, an octave pedal, a double snare drum kit and an aversion to too much technology is what gets their mojo workin’.
As well as many standalone gigs up and down the state, Blackwood Rising are proud have supported acts such as 19Twenty, Blue Shaddy, and Tom Fisher and the Layabouts, as well as music industry legends Ross Wilson, The Black Sorrows and Mental as Anything.
Joining Blackwood Rising for this show, Andrew Winton brings his bluesified originals and well-known gems via his cypress tree root, double neck lap-slide called the 'Lucky 13'. From years of playing national festival circuits, playing in the US and collecting many awards along the way, Andrew keeps stretching the boundaries of Blues and Folk while giving audiences a good time, every time.
