House of Blues - Jam Night

Ian CollardTuesday 2nd August 2022

Feature act: IAN COLLARD

IAN COLLARD has established himself as one of Australia’s leading blues artists as part of Aria-award winning Blues trio Collard Greens and Gravy and singer, guitarist/harmonica player in his own right. Attracted to the harmonica at an early age, Ian found himself drawn to the music of harmonica greats such as Little Walter, Sonny Boy Williamson and Sonny Terry and to the world of the Blues that inspired him to pursue a life in music.

In recent years Ian has been performing solo in the style of some of his heroes like Dr Ross and Jimmy Reed, and producing the authentic down-home blues sound that can be heard on his 2014 release ”Swamp Stomp and Boogie”. Currently, as well as his work with bands Collard Greens and Gravy and Three Kings, Ian also performs with another of Australia’s leading blues bands, The Backsliders. His harmonica playing can also be heard on albums by Australian artists Claire Bowditch, Jeff Lang and Ash Grunwald, and was featured on the Baz Luhrmann international hit ”Everybody’s Free to Wear Sunscreen”.
