Geoff Achison & The Soul Diggers at “Alive After Five” – April 28, 2017, 6:00-8:30 pm. Enter Bailey Hall after 5:00.
Geoff Achison is an award winning blues-roots artist from Australia known for his energetic live performances and unique guitar mastery. Achison’s music has been compared favourably to Eric Clapton and the Allman Brothers Band having a solid foundation in the blues whilst embracing a variety of electric & acoustic styles. His songwriting is original and thoughtful with a wry sense of humour reminiscent at times of Randy Newman, JJ Cale and Mose Allison. Achison is an all-round musician who delights in entertaining the crowd but has also been described as a ‘guitarists guitarist’. He is one of those artists that can rock the house with brilliant intensity but also able to silence the crowd with beautiful, delicate phrasing. His music is firmly steeped in the blues but Achison also injects funk, soul, jazz and even classical styles into the mix. He calls it ‘Bluesic’ meaning that the blues provides the foundation for making all manner of sounds with the hope that the message gets through.
