The Gov - Full Gig

BACKSLIDERS + OLD GREY MULE (US)

ADELAIDE FRINGE 2015

“Backsliders are redefining, refining and diversifying the Blues genre”- The Australian, 2014.

The Gov start our 2015 Adelaide Fringe Season with a blues double header - ARIA nominees and iTunes Australian Blues & Roots Album Of The Year winners Backsliders are pairing with Mississippi Hills Country blue heroes Old Gray Mule for a night of raw electric swampy music on Friday, February 13.

After 28 years on the road Backsliders (Dom Turner, Rob Hirst with Ian Collard) can rightfully call themselves an institution across Australia. Their collective calibre is unmatched in blues
with Turner a former Blues Songwriter Of The Year award winner, while former Midnight Oil member Hirst has a pedigree as one of the finest drummers of his generation. Matched with ARIA Award winning Collard, the band are synonymous world wide and especially respected in the Deep South belt of the US, the spiritual home of their style.

This promises to be a night of raw rockin’ blues with both acts steeped in the rich sounds of rural Mississippi.
