STAWELL - With eight albums, a swag of accolades and twenty years of performing, writing and recording, Lloyd Spiegel has certainly squeezed more into thirty years than many do in a lifetime.
It's that experience and presence well beyond his years that has seen him become one of this country's leading Blues artists and most respected guitarists. His incredible command of the guitar, powerful voice and high energy performance captivates any audience.
Residents from throughout Stawell and district now have the opportunity to witness the marvel of Lloyd Spiegel live at the Diamond House on Friday, April 26. Lloyd will be performing his 'magic' to the audience, who will be spellbound by his brilliance.
Tickets are available at $20 per person, with meals selected from the new menu, available from 6pm. For bookings, phone 5358 3366. In between extensive touring within Australia, Lloyd Spiegel has travelled all over the world with frequent tours to Germany, Italy, Japan and the U.S.A, where he's toured coast to coast six times.
During these tours he has performed at some of the world's best known Blues venues and largest festivals, as well as showcasing at every major international guitar player's event in the world. He's played bills with legendary Blues artists from Buddy Guy and Etta James to Ray Charles, as well as artists from a range of musical genres including Bob Dylan, Peter Frampton and Willie Nelson.
During his time in the U.S.A, he was invited to teach and lecture for the prestigious 'Blues In The Schools' program. This nationwide project is designed to teach American youth about the tradition of Blues within their culture and also supplies lessons and instruments to students who otherwise couldn't afford to have music in their lives.
Introducing tomorrow's musicians to the Blues is something Lloyd is very passionate about and he now works closely with many of Australia's young artists to give back some of what he got from the Blues music scene as a teenager. Popular Blues/Roots artists like Kim Churchill, Jason Lowe and Jonno Zilber have gone on to be award-winning artists and count Lloyd as a major inspiration and mentor. Don't miss your chance to see Lloyd Spiegel live at the Diamond House on April 26.
