Backsliders

Backsliders are Bluesfest regulars and have toured the Australian festival circuit for the past 35 years. Dom Turner (guitar and lead vocals), Rob Hirst (drums and vocals) along with Joe Glover (harmonica and vocals) are known for captivating live shows—an eclectic mix of blues styles moving from original 21st Century blues with Australian themes, driving hill country and delta blues with jungle-like rhythms, to Piedmont blues-influenced all-acoustic unplugged treatments of 1920’s songs by heroes such as Mississippi Fred McDowell and Robert Johnson. Backsliders will be performing tracks from their latest release ‘Bonecrunch’ as well as from their extensive back-catalogue of albums.
