Jam with Bill

Cham­bers pa­tri­arch puts on a show at Air­lie

Whitsunday Times - - CHILL -

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.
