Chris O'Connor

Chris specialises in old time acoustic blues, using tried and true fingerpicking and bottleneck guitar techniques. He can make songs from 1920s and 30s blues masters sound as if they were written yesterday. His material ranges from driving delta blues to sparkling ragtime and his own wry songs and bottleneck instrumentals , inspired by artists such as Tommy Johnson, Tampa Red and Lemon Jefferson. He has represented the Sydney Blues Society at the International Blues Challenge in Memphis in 2014 and 2019.
