Gig Information

Australian Blues legend Lloyd Spiegel at the Christchurch Folk Club with burning hot blues

Australian Blues legend Lloyd Spiegel brings his high energy solo show back to New Zealand in 2016, heading to the Christchurch Folk Club on Sunday 6th November. Spiegel's incredible command of the guitar and powerful stage presence is a must see for blues and guitar fans alike. Spiegel is ALL presence, authority, rhythm and drive. He epitomizes control, soul and passion with white hot ferocity and blazing instrumental mastery, dangerous enough to spark a destructive inferno (Terry Riley, The Age, Melbourne)

Since his last trip over the pond he's picked up an astounding 4 Australian Blues Awards for Artist of the year, Album of the year, Song of the year and Producer of the year and his 'Double Live Set' CD was selected as a finalist in the Blues Foundation's worldwide International Blues Competition's 'Best self-produced album' award.

From the opening notes of the Blues staples ‘Statesboro Blues’ and Robert Johnson’s ‘Love in Vain’ it’s a case of right songs, and incredible treatment that makes Spiegel so essential. And by the time you are into the meat of his own songs like the wonderful ‘New York City’ and equally engrossing ‘Mississippi Sun’ you know that this is an artist that is equally capable of igniting audiences with his own ‘standards’ rather than rely on the tried and tested classics. Indeed the set is so strong that sometimes it’s hard to pick the originals from the covers which is a testament to any artist. (The Rock Pit, Australia)

In between extensive touring within Australia, Spiegel has travelled all over the world with frequent tours to Germany, Italy, Japan and the U.S.A, where he's toured coast to coast 6 times. During these tours he has performed at some of the world's best known Blues venues and largest festivals as well as showcasing at every major international guitar player's event in the world. 2016 sees Lloyd tour to Europe, Canada and Japan and a new release is currently in mix for release prior to the NZ tour.

He's played bills with legendary blues artists from Buddy Guy and Etta James to Ray Charles, as well as artists from a range of musical genres including Bob Dylan, Peter Frampton and Willie Nelson.

'A guitarist almost without peer but here in the hallowed confines of this record he truly shows why. Spiegel deconstructs how the Blues guitar is supposed to operate, makes sweet love to it, then kicks it out the back door. (Australian Guitar Magazine)

If you love your music 'live', soulful and high energy, then get excited, this man has it all 'in spades'.
