Bellarine Peninsula music fans are in for a treat when Will Kimbrough hits the Piping Hot Chicken and Burger Grill later this month.

Kimbrough is an Alabama native living in Nashville, whose music is deeply rooted in old school country, gospel, traditional blues, American folk and roots music.

He last graced these shores playing guitar with Emmylou Harris’ Red Dirt touring band.

He’s a sublime songwriter – think of Kimbrough as the Sherlock Holmes of songwriting – and a sharp-eyed observer of humanity who notes every detail and spares nothing in his analysis.

His prowess as a multi instrumentalist is legendary and in 2004 he was named as the Americana Music Association Instrumentalist of the Year; a huge accolade from his peers, which is reflected by the demands on his time as a session player, record producer and touring musician.

Among his latest record production credits are albums for Steve Poltz and Rodney Crowell.

In the middle of his many commitments to countless other artists projects in 2019 he released his ninth solo recording ‘I like it Down Here’.

This is Kimbrough’s first solo tour of Australia.

Deeply rooted in classic rock ‘n roll, old school country, gospel, traditional blues and folk music; this is a man who loves, and lives, real music.

The gig is on Saturday, March 21 at the Piping Hot Chicken and Burger Grill in Ocean Grove.

Tickets $25 and are available at geelongtickets.com.au/event/11284.
