CRAIG WILLIAMS (ACT)

CRAIG WILLIAMS (ACT) solo singer/guitarist
R
oots, country rock , R & B influences

Craig has played venues from the snow fields of NSW
to classic small town country clubs and pubs since the late ‘80's. An unusually pleasant vocal quality accompanied by a modest though interesting guitar style, reflects an eclectic musical taste, with a variety of styles & moods, which he uses to advantage when performing his original acoustic material, adding to a set list an interest in sharing his own stories, with a warmth of subtle familiarity. At times supported by sequenced backing tracks, Craig will entertain a captive audience with mostly covers from the ‘60’s – ‘90’s. He is, however, a contemporary folk artist, with strong roots country, rock, rhythm & blues influences. Craig Williams (‘the not so famous’) well worth a squiz.

 

THE BRIDGE BETWEEN (ACT)

THE BRIDGE BETWEEN (ACT) duo (guitars/vocals)
pop and rock covers

The lads’ have been hanging out, singing harmonies and playing guitar since they were 15. It’s what they know who they are. From sweeping harmonies to blistering guitar, The Bridge Between has more variety in their ‘show bag’ than most! Week in week out, they’ve been hitting the clubs and pubs of Canberra. Whilst honing their skills and smoking the tunes (but always outside a 2 metre radius), they have still found time to cut their first E.P. ‘Crazy Water,’ which is out early October 2007. Their biggest gig to date was last New Years Eve, when they played to a pulsating 3000 strong crowd in the CBD. The Bridge Between is set to tour the east coast at the end of the year. They are regulars at the George Harcourt Inn.
