It's Time for the Blues, Baby

Ali Penney & Wayne Jury first performed together at the 2000 Thredbo Blues Festival, and sparks flew! Audiences were amazed as this dynamite combination was ignited before their eyes (and ears) and an extraordinary new musical union was born.
Wayne and Ali’s music takes you from New Orleans to Memphis, from Nashville to Chicago – it’s soulful, and tough, sweet and bluesy. They play their distinctive original material alongside powerful tunes by artists such as Muddy Waters, Memphis Minnie, Ray Charles, Johnny Taylor, Freddie King, Al Green, Sam Cooke, Bessie Smith and Alan Toussaint. This is a very earthy combo – if you like it hard and cheeky or soft and low-down you’ll love Ali Penney and Wayne Jury.
Once a year Ali and Wayne combine forces and light old musical fires that still burn strong. Come on in and stand by the fire.Alison Penny and Wayne Jury Duo Victorian show dates: Pistol Pete’s Food and Blues ($10) – November 21, The Blues Train, Queenscliff – November 22 & The Lomond Hotel, East Brunswick (free) – November 23.
