1.21 Luke Watt

With fingers so nimble, folk-bluesman Luke Watt would make one fine pickpocket. Fortunately, he has decided to apply his skills to the guitar instead. Counting Chris Whitley’s Dirt Floor, Kelly Joe Phelps’s Sky like a Broken Clock and Matt Walker’s Listen to the Night among his favourite albums, Luke employs finger-picking and slide guitar as he draws on folk melodies and blues grooves. He has performed at the national Music Muster in Gympie, the Queenscliff Music Festival, the Brunswick Music Festival, the Australian Blues Festival and the Port Fairy Folk Festival, as well as performing shows across Europe and the legendary Terra Blues Club in New York. Suttons House of Music, Ballarat – July 23.
