One of Australia’s greatest blues and roots performers, Ash Grunwald presents an evening of soulful music from his extensive back catalogue and most recent releases.
With five ARIA Award nominations across nine studio albums, Grunwald’s critically acclaimed latest record Mojo saw him tour internationally before releasing another record, Push The Blues Away, for a side project with The Teskey Brothers. In an exciting mix of electronica and classic blues sounds, witness a compelling troubadour at his best.
Audiences will also be treated to the debut of newly formed local band History of Trees when the band provides the support act for Grunwald’s Adelaide Guitar Festival appearance.
After writing a surplus of songs that clashed with the style of his current bands, including award-winning group The Streamliners, renowned blues guitarist Nick Kipridis formed his latest side project to consolidate what he describes as a “mongrel” mix of new music.
Performing to a live audience for the first time, History of Trees will begin with gentle acoustic before building up to an electric maelstrom of compositions and improvisations.
Adelaide Guitar Festival, led by Artistic Director Slava Grigoryan, is the most significant festival of its kind in the Southern Hemisphere. Running from 4 - 25 July in 2021, festival goers experience world-class guitarists coming together to deliver an exciting program of events in a variety of genres. The festival is made up of regional roadshows, free and low-cost workshops, and ticketed performances held Adelaide Festival Centre.
