SALTY DOG – the high energy blues act with a mix of Chicago/Swamp/Boogie Blues styles are celebrating over 25 years in the biz! With an impressive 11 albums under their belts, multi award-winning Blues artists Steve Plater and Marion Turner have clocked up many thousands of kilometres around Australia on their Blues journey since the mid 90's. From their home base in Ballarat, Salty Dog perform regular shows every week, touring locally and interstate, including spots at regional Blues festivals and overseas tours.
Steve is renown for his wickedly deft side-guitar playing and expertise across a range of stringed instruments – recognised as one of Australia's finest multi instrumentalists, performing with his own awesome-sounding Cigar Box guitar creations and a selection from his electric guitar collection. Marion similarly can turn her hand to a variety of instruments and delivers power-house vocals in addition to being one of the country's most vibrant harmonica players. With the recognised achievement of a scoop of prestigious Chain and VicTas Blues Awards to their credit over many years, Steve and Marion are a proven force.
Together as Salty Dog, this masterful duo are a guaranteed crowd pleaser live. Salty Dog perform a rare Melbourne show at the MBAS 'House of Blues', which will also feature Roger Knight on drums. Their spanking new album "Preachin' Blues" will be available to purchase on the night. Don't miss it!
"The huge wall of sound that they create, with singer/guitarists Steve Plater and Marion Turner, who also plays harmonica, taking no prisoners. Big sounding drums and riffing guitars... plenty of wild slide playing... a very, very nice blues-rock CD from an outfit that deserves to be more widely known!"
