Buddy Knox.

HOT on the heels of an appearance at the Bendigo Blues and Roots Festival last year, Buddy Knox is back for a gig at the Handle Bar on March 29.

Knox has carved up the blues scene around Australia since 2007, notching his blues belt with all the big ticket Australian festivals from Bridgetown to Bendigo to Bluesfest.

He won the Sydney Blues Society Performer of the Year twice, and continues to share his old school blues style with fans. Knox plays with smooth finesse, in the tasty authentic style of the old legends.

Armed with his signature 335 Gibson, or more recently in acoustic sets, the Maton, his devotion to the art form is genuine.

His recent move to acoustic blues gives fans the intimate experience of bare bones genuine blues, Knox style.

Buddy Knox plays the Handle Bar, 73 Mitchell Street, at 6pm on Friday, March 29.
