The Teskey Brothers
Sam and Josh Teskey, known around the world as The Teskey Brothers, are no strangers to Bluesfest having performed across many of its five stages in various capacities over the years. Going back even further, a young Josh was known to make the annual pilgrimage north at Easter time to witness the likes of Buddy Guy, Taj Mahal, Charles Bradley, Richard Clapton, Chain and many others. All of which had a magic and profound effect on him.
Over the past 10 years The Teskey Brothers have proven themselves capable of their own magic, reaching global success in a fashion most unexpected for a blues band out of Melbourne. Their soul-drenched take on rock, folk and blues across three studio albums has struck an undeniable chord with music lovers around the world. 2023’s The Winding Way being no exception, landing at #1 on the ARIA album chart and receiving critical acclaim. On the back of it they’ve played sold out headline shows all across Europe, UK and North America (including a notable 12,000 in Amsterdam), iconic festivals such as Glastonbury, Montreux Jazz and Austin City Limits, and even opened for Bruce Springsteen in Milan.
Along with their stunning 8-piece band The Teskey Brothers will close out a massive Australian tour at none other than their spiritual home at Tyagarah.
