Jam with Bill
Chambers patriarch puts on a show at Airlie
ONE of country music’s biggest names will rock out at the Whitsunday Sailing Club this Sunday.
Considered by many to be Australia’s premier alterative-country guitarist, Bill Chambers is always well worth a listen.
With his growling, smoky voice and heartfelt lyrics, the patriarch of the Chambers clan has an honest vibe that tells stories of the Australian outback.
A true Aussie battler, Chambers is a master of delicate picking and a demon on the slide despite being entirely self taught. He may have achieved international recognition, but for this outback boy the real reward is life on the road with his guitar.
Having performed with some of the best in the business, Chambers comes north after taking to the stage at the Byron Bay Bluesfest recently, where he played for packed out crowds.
He’s still a small town bloke at heart however, just as impressive in an intimate setting such as the sailing club as he is on the big stage.
Once Chambers has done his thing and seen the crowd singing along, the stage will be thrown open to Whitsunday musos to work it.
The Whitsunday Sailing Club Jam Sessions are always an enjoyable affair, with good food, great music and awesome company. So come on down, kick back and listen to some top tunes with Bill on the mic.
