Chris Finnen Band

With a career spanning more than four decades, Chris Finnen is a legend in the Australian blues music scene. He brings a wry twist to his original blues writing with sly humour, focusing on the musing of everyday experiences, and embracing a strong sense of community. His blues virtuosity has seen him perform alongside and support artists such as Buddy Guy, Bo Diddley, Roy Buchannan and more.

Amongst his many awards include several recognitions from the Australian Blues Music Awards, two inductions into the South Australian Music Hall of Fame, as well as an induction into the New York Blues Hall of Fame by The American Heritage International Organisation.
