Phil Wiggins and Don Turner: two blues devotees


Dom Turner and Phil Wiggins are two blues devotees who are back at the Blues on Broadbeach free music festival again this year.

Dom and Phil had a show on the Surf Parade stage this Saturday morning and people experienced the different blues styles from two blues masters.

“We play different styles of blues,” Dom told the audience.

Every blues musician has their own style and they worked their distinctive styles together very well.

This year is their second time to perform at Blues on Broadbeach together.

They were described as one of the 10 ‘must-see’ acts at the Byron Bay Blues festival in 2015.

Dom Turner is well-known for his almost 3 decades of work with one of Australia’s leading blues acts, The Backsliders.

Phil Wiggins is a great blues harmonica virtuoso from Washington DC and he regularly partners with legendary guitarist and vocalist John Cephas.

This Sunday, the last day of the festival, will be the last opportunity to see their show at Blues on Broadbeach 2016.

They will be playing their last Blues on Broadbeach performance on the Victoria Park stage on 22nd May at 2:45PM to 4:00PM.

This might be your last chance of the year to hear their music live.
