Blues muso brings tour to Cessnock

Up-and-coming blues musician Julian James will perform at PJ’s on Wollombi, West Cessnock this Saturday night.

The frontman from the raucous Melbourne-based Chicago blues outfit Catfish Voodoo has been touring around Australia for the past eight years.

His style is based deep in the blues acoustic strummers of the south, with references of love, loss and debauchery. His latest album Whiskey and the Devil is a mix of the contemporary and traditional that showcases a different side of a man familiar to Australian blues fans.

Bringing a authentic feel to some of the blues greats, his show consists of powerful slide, heavy vocals and warm harmonica.

The show will start at 7pm.
