Bitter-sweet Blues Tram farewell for DIGG

 

The Blues Tram rolls again this coming Saturday, September, 16. It will be a bitter-sweet affair for young Bendigo band DIGG as it is the trio’s Blues Tram debut, but it’s also their farewell performance as a band.

DIGG is a blues and folk outfit comprising sisters Gemma and Izzy Goldsmith, and their cousin Dan Simons. Blending rhythmic and bluesy acoustic guitar, funky bass lines and soulful vocals, DIGG has been delighting central Victorian audiences for several years now. 

Joining DIGG on the Blues Tram is much-loved UK soul performer and loop artist, Geoffrey Williams. Geoffrey has been a big hit on previous visits to Bendigo.   His career includes writing songs for Michael Jackson and Dusty Springfield. He has performed at Wembley Arena, Woodford Folk Festival, Montreux Jazz Festival and the last two Bendigo Blues & Roots Music Festivals.

The Blues Tram is a wonderful way to enjoy some of the sights of Bendigo’s stunning CBD architecture.

The next Blues Tram rolls on Saturday, September, 16 at 2pm from the Central Deborah Goldmine. Tickets are available at $35 from Bendigo Visitor Centre in Pall Mall, 1800 813 513.
