Geoff Achison Guitarist
We’d like to spread the word to our readers about a guitarist/songwriter/singer/entertainer from Australia who is worth going out of your way to see and hear. Yesterday afternoon we enjoyed the intimate setting and the company of wonderful folks at The Saluda Inn Wine Cellar while hearing the perfect concert. It does not get any better than Geoff Achison if you love guitars, guitarists, blues, folk, rock, brilliant lyrics and vocals.
Everyone agrees …
“Possibly one of the most gifted musicians to arrive on the scene…” The Times, London UK (Live gig review)
“Achison has been hailed as one of the finest blues players in Australia.” Encyclopedia of Australian Rock and Pop
“Achison gets the true believers with a gruff, suitably soulful voice, and lets everybody else in with his winking wit.” Regan Kelly, Creative Loafing, Atlanta, GA
“Catchy, intelligent songwriting.” Downbeat Magazine – USA (Little Big Men CD review)
“Geoff is one of the finest blues guitarists I know with a completely individual style.” Jorma Kaukonen – Jefferson Airplane/Hot Tuna
“Achison’s latest album ‘One Ticket, One Ride’ shows that while he’s sown his seed in fertile blues/roots territory, he’s a master of driving funk and jazz inspired ambience.” Mike Uricheck – Elmore Magazine (One Ticket, One Ride CD review)
Thanks to Frank and Amy Beeson and the wonderful folks at The Saluda Inn Wine Cellar for bringing such a talent to our area!
And thanks to Geoff for a memorable concert!
