Geoff Achison.

There’s no hint of the winter blues in Bendigo’s music scene, with upcoming events put together by the team responsible for the Bendigo Blues and Roots music festival.

Geoff Achison and The Souldiggers’ 25-year anniversary show, to be held next Friday at the All Seasons Hotel, starts an exciting lineup of June events.

Tickets can be bought directly through the All Seasons.

On Saturday, June 8, two intimate gigs are being staged in two very different spaces as part of a busy long weekend.

From Ballarat, John McNamara and Jess Parker and The Trouble Waters are performing on the incredibly popular Blues Tram in Violet Street from 2pm until 4.30pm.

McNamara is a multi-award winning blues artist, who has reached number one on the International Blues Airplay Charts and has featured on BBC Radio.

Tickets are available from the Bendigo Visitor Centre or online at Bendigo Tourism.

Andrea Robertson and Band from Ocean Grove will be launching their new album Live at New Hall on Saturday, June 8 at The Old Church on the Hill.

Supporting their third independent release, the performance will feature a full band at a public venue, with proceeds from drink sales going towards supporting the Old Church and their many initiatives.
