Award winning singer/songwriter, harmonica player and guitar finger-picker Dan Dinnen teams up with Anthony “Shorty” Shortte, one of the Australian Blues Scene’s most exciting and original drummer/percussionists. The result is a bluesy gumbo of rootsy goodness. A little bit delta swamp, a little bit hill country, a lot its own unique flavour.
“Dan Dinnen is one of the most authentic blues voices on the scene, but with an individual sound.” - Helen Jennings, PBSfm. Dan was the 2016 MBAS Blues Performer Of The Year (Solo/Duo Category), 2017 MBAS Artist Of The Year and a Semi-Finalist in the 2017 International Blues Challenge in Memphis TN. He is a Chain Award recipient (Group Of The Year 2016) for his vocals and harp playing with Greg Dodd & The Hoodoo Men.
Anthony “Shorty” Shortte is best known for his work with ARIA award winning blues act Collard Greens and Gravy. Shorty’s unique approach to the drum-kit helped to create a rolling, rollicking, juke-joint sound that captivated audiences at gigs and festivals around the country for 20 years.
