Great Southern Funding Partner

Blues in the Vines

Joe Filisko and Eric Noden are among America's finest blues musicians. Their scintillating harmonica and driving finger-style guitar conjure up the vintage sounds and spirit of early American bluesmen.

Join Joe, Eric and local guests for a hearty Great Southern farewell to all the Playmakers.

Food and wine available (no BYO).

Featured playmakers:

Joe Filisko (USA)

No one has influenced the modern harmonica like legend Joe Filisko. He builds, customises, repairs and plays at festivals all over the world, making the harmonica his full-time job.

Eric Noden (USA)
Deeply rooted in music of the '20s and '30s, Eric's percussive guitar work, timeless songwriting and well-travelled blues vocals have earned the respect of audiences, critics and musicians worldwide. This one-man band, songwriter, actor and educator continues to re-invent traditional blues and roots music for today's audiences.

Brendan Power (NZ/UK)
Acknowledged as one of the most creative, skilled and versatile harmonica players in the world today, Brendan's ability to seamlessly cross musical genres knows no bounds. He is equally adept at blues, jazz, Celtic, swing and country and is recognised by Suzuki Musical Instruments Co of Japan as their International Harmonica Specialist.

Neil Graham (AUS)
The 'ironman' of the Australian harmonica scene, boilermaker, welder, iron monger and blacksmith Neil is a pragmatic craftsman and talented innovator who just happened to pick up eighth place at the World Harmonica Championships in 2001. Not a single detail of the harmonica escapes the scrutiny of Neil Graham.

Scott Wise (AUS)
Not only does Scott have a passion and international reputation for making high-quality stringed instruments, he can blow a harp with the best of them! His classic authenticity of tone and expression conjures the juke joint and barrel house days of early American music.

Justin Brady (AUS)
Justin is well known to many Australian music fans as the electrifying harmonica player and multi-instrumentalist for Things of Stone and Wood, with whom he toured the world. In 2006 Justin won the prestigious Golden Harmonica Award at the Tamworth Music Festival. He runs Off the Lip Australian Harmonica School and is always in demand as a harmonica educator and workshop practitioner.

Dave Clarke (AUS)
Despite persistent rumours of their being five Dave Clarkes, there is in fact only one! A rare devotee of 'in the rack' playing, this master musician coined the now-global term 'Zimmerman frame' for the harmonica device employed by his equally famous contemporary, Bob Dylan. For a quirky and entertaining look at the scratch and rub approach to multiple-instrument playing, look for Dave anywhere and everywhere at Playmakers.
