Blues on Broadbeach welcomes R.L. Boyce with Dom Turner – a joint Australia/USA musical collaboration between Australian slide guitarist and music producer Dom Turner (of awarded blues act ‘Backsliders’ fame) and natural talent, Mississippi-born ‘R.L. Boyce’.
Grammy award nominee, R.L. Boyce has been an invisible hand behind some of the most culturally important, vital music America has to offer the world. R.L. is the reigning master of Mississippi hill country blues, a raw and powerful trancelike hypnotic blues music style that has ancient roots and has influenced myriad blues, rock, punk, grunge, and hip-hop artists. His songs are often delivered in an improvisational fashion, with references to his collaborators, his environs and whatever else happens to be on his mind at that particular moment.
Dom Turner is best known as guitarist/vocalist, founding member and key songwriter of the iconic and multi award winning Australian blues group, Backsliders. Dom is a regular visitor to R.L. Boyce’s hometown and the pair have performed at a number of festivals and venues in Mississippi including the Otha Turner Family Picnic and the R.L. Boyce Picnic and Blues Celebration, and in Australia in 2019 where they were a hit at the 2019 Girrakool Blues Festival.
