The Blues Preachers – Brother John on guitar, banjo and vocals, and Captain Bluetongue on harmonica, mountain dulcimer and vocals – will take you to another place and time, somewhere between 1920 and 1940. Their music paints a landscape of pre-war struggle and determination with sounds reminiscent of the Deep South. They will make you want to get up and dance with their joyful country and ragtime blues, and send a shiver down your spine with their atmospheric feels, echoing and paying homage to the sacred sounds of early artists such as Blind Willie Johnson. Their 2008 album ‘Next Stop Beulah Land’ and their highly regarded 2009 release ‘Dry Long So’ showcase the talents of the Preachers.

After highly acclaimed performances at The Woodford Folk Festival, The Australian Blues Festival (Goulburn), The Blue Mountains Folk Festival, The West Coast Blues Festival and The East Coast Blues Festival, The Blues Preachers have secured a reputation as one of the best acoustic blues and roots acts in the country. The Blues Preachers were 5th. overall in the Australian Songwriting Awards 2009 for “Divine Justice Coming Down” which also received a top 5 nomination in the Sing Out For Social Action category of The Independent Music Awards 2009 and was chosen by Yoko Ono as runner-up in the John Lennon 70th birthday anniversary song contest. They received a top 5 nomination in the Acoustic category of The Independent Music Awards 2011 for “The Free Train Agreement”, which was also selected to be on a Canadian compilation released in May 2011 called “Protest Songs For A Better World”.
