Inaugural Session Sunday July 24th, 2022
Double Trouble Blues Sessions is Australia’s new premier blues event at the Iconic The St Andrews Hotel showcasing feature national blues icons as guest artist headlines: Geoff Achison, Ian Collard Mike Elrington Jimi Hocking and Bill Barber.
Supported by Kaliopi & the Blues Messengers, the event is the result of the combined efforts of a community of blues associations and performers who aim to celebrate new and established blues and roots music on an international platform.
The event is set in the St Andrews hotel in St Andrews, Vic, an historical blues venue, with the sounds of Dutch Tilders, Chain, Chris Wilson echoing from the walls. The venue has installed new production for these Double Trouble Blues Sessions to reignite the spirit of the blues in the venue.
Each event performance format will start with our feature artist opening with solo set followed by a second set to unearth a new vintage blues support act through to the final collaborative set where our feature guest artist will lead our seasoned session band directing a world-class session jam in the traditional spirit of the blues.
