Mind-blowing Australian blues guitar legend Lloyd Spiegel makes his Carleton debut with a special afternoon performance on Sunday, October 28th. Show time is 4 PM and tickets are $20 advanced or $25 at the door.
Australian blues legend Lloyd Spiegel is a trailblazer in his field and one of his country’s most recognized guitarists, recently being named in Australian Guitar Magazine’s list of the 50 greatest Australian guitarists of all time. A touring artist since age 11, with a relentless tour schedule across the globe, the seven time Australian Blues Award winner has one of the most unique stories in music. Spiegel blends jaw-dropping guitar expertise with a commanding voice, powerful songwriting, comedy and storytelling that delivers a complete concert experience on the cutting edge of the modern blues genre.
Spiegel’s 8th release, ‘Backroads’ is a hard edged, personal and brutally honest account of his touring life and follows up from his previous albums, all of which debuted in the top 10 of the Australian independent music charts and holding the #1 spot on the Australian Blues Chart for several weeks.

“A revelation, the consummate performer, an Oz Blues & Roots icon.” – Rolling Stone
