While 7-time Grammy Award winner Buddy Guy fronts Crossroads Blues In The Vines 10 February, 2018, where he'll be joined by Ian Moss, Diesel, Russell Morris, Larkin Poe (US), Ted Mulry Gang, Kevin Borich, Mia Dyson and others.
“Back in 1993 was when I kicked off my world tour in March in Australia, so now 25 years later it just kinda felt like the right thing to do at the right time!” Billy Ray says.
“I love the fans there. They love their music, they love their football, they love the arts. It’s a great country with great people and we love coming down there and playing!”
Roche Estate – a two-hour drive from Sydney or one hour from Newcastle – has previously hosted world-class concerts with Elton John, Neil Diamond, Lionel Richie, Duran Duran, KD Lang, Rod Stewart and Cat Stevens all gracing the Roche Estate stage.
