“This is a reverential homage to those timeless blues masters from 2 blues devotees infused with a real passion that reaches beyond imitation.”
— Bruce Elder
Phil Wiggins & Dom Turner
The trans-pacific duo Phil Wiggins & Dom Turner is a recent collaboration of old friends - America’s foremost harmonica virtuoso, Phil Wiggins and legendary Australian blues guitarist/vocalist, Dom Turner.
Phil Wiggins toured the world for the best part of 35 years with the Piedmont Blues duo Cephas & Wiggins. Dom Turner has played and toured for the last 30 years with the legendary Australian blues band, Backsliders.
In June 2014 Phil & Dom performed a critically acclaimed series of east Coast USA concerts, their first formal collaboration and included a set-list packed with Piedmont, Delta, & Hill Country blues. In October 2014 Phil was invited to the Great Southern Blues Festival in Narooma NSW, Australia to perform with Dom in their first Australian concert together. In early 2015 the duo toured the East Coast of Australia beginning at the Blue Mountains Music Festival and ending at Australia’s most prestigious blues festival, Bluesfest in Byron Bay where they were described as one of the 10 ‘must-see’ Bluesfest acts. 2016 saw the duo perform at the National Folk Festival, a series of performances that resulted in a re-invitation to perform at the National in 2017.
The Phil Wiggins & Dom Turner debut album ‘Owing the Devil a Day’s Work’ was released 27 February 2015 through Rocket Distribution (Australia) and through Itunes.
