The Blues Tram with Geoffrey Williams & Digg
Our September 2017 Tram is a bitter sweet event for the Bendigo Blues & Roots scene as young Bendigo talents DIGG – Band make their Blues Tram debut, but also perform for the last time together as a band. We also feature seasoned soul performer; Geoffrey Williams returning to the Blues Tram after being a massive hit for us previously in 2016.
Enjoy the sights of Bendigo’s architecturally stunning CBD from on board the sensationally restored vintage W Class tram, while being suitably entertained by these two great acts:
Much loved UK singer & loop artist Geoffrey Williams dishes up some soulful delectations of 60s/70s inspired blues, rhythm and soul, all with a Caribbean twist! Expect to be mesmerised by sweet melodies and irresistible grooves. He has written songs for artists incl Michael Jackson and Dusty Springfield & performed at Wembley Arena, Woodford Folk Festival, Montreux Jazz Festival and the last 2 year’s Bendigo Blues & Roots Festival. Catch him and you won’t regret it!
DIGG is a local three piece blues and folk band made up of sisters Gemma and Izzy Goldsmith and their cousin Dan Simons. Blending rhythmic and bluesy acoustic guitar, funky bass lines and soulful vocals, DIGG make for a surprisingly powerful experience.
