Highway blues man back on Coast
AFTER returning from a mammoth seven-month tour of the remote west, Skotty Fairclough; a Gold Coast-based singer songwriter, is back living in his car, travelling the highways and performing a unique blend of blues and roots written from life on the road.
After 35,000km and 92 dates to crowds of a cultural melting pot, Fairclough took no summer break, walking straight back into a 31-date solo tour of regional Queensland and New South Wales - all before he takes off on his belated honeymoon, and returns mid year to do it all again.
His journey brings him to Coffs Harbour and Bellingen over the next week, and no doubt audiences will be impressed.
Skotty's acoustic and resonated blend of psych-rock and blues-influenced music is as distinctive as his story, and he sings it with both grace and grit.
You can catch Skotty at the Federal Hotel, Bellingen, this Friday from 8pm, or at The Coast Hotel next Thursday February 26.
