Award winning Australian guitarist/songwriter Geoff Achison lived in Decatur in 2007-2008. Join him May 4 at his Homecoming show on his yearly US Tour. His world class band, The Souldiggers, are Yonrico Scott, Kevin Thomas and Shannon Hoover.
Achison invokes the spirit of the great blues & soul artists to create his engaging original sound he calls “Bluesic.” He’s been chosen one of the “Top Ten Hottest New Guitarists” by Guitar Player Magazine and is listed as one of the “Top 50 Australian Guitarists of All Time.” He’s been an 18 year Guitar Instructor at Jorma Kaukonen's Fur Peace Guitar Ranch and an exciting festival favorite featured on PBS, NPR, the BBC and CNN. Frequent tours of the US have seen him playing with folks like The Allman Brothers, George Porter, Jr., The Wood Brothers, Hot Tuna, Col. Bruce Hampton, Randall Bramblett, Delbert McClinton, John Mayer, and many others. His guitar playing style is instantly recognizable, and his cheeky lyrics keep humor and fun at the forefront.
“Possibly one of the most gifted musicians to arrive on the scene…” The Times of London, UK
