Geoff Achison

Our first feature guest artist, Geoff Achison will launch the first show on Sunday 24th July. Australian blues-roots artist best known for his guitar playing and songwriting. Geoff began his apprenticeship with legendary Australian bluesman 'Dutch' Tilders establishing himself as a fine lead guitarist before striking out with his own. He released his debut album in the early 90s and began touring throughout the USA, UK & Europe. 

Geoff's music has been compared favourably to major artists such as Eric Clapton, JJ Cale, and the Allman Brothers Band having a solid foundation in the blues whilst embracing a variety of music styles. He has won awards for his guitar playing, songwriting, and live performances and was honoured in 2011 as an official Patron Of the Melbourne Blues Appreciation Society. In 2020 Geoff was inducted into the "Blues Music Victoria Hall Of Fame"
