Acoustic Blues/Roots powerhouse Mike Elrington returns for his only Tassie tour of 2023!
Mike Elrington is a gifted singer songwriter with incredible guitar skills. Standing at almost two metres tall, delivering his signature, gut-wrenching vocals like an instrument all on its own, very few people forget a performance from this man.
The commitment to his live shows and the well-earned reputation for leaving nothing behind but sweat has seen him invited to perform at some of Australias finest festivals, including the iconic Byron Bay BluesFest, Bendigo, Sydney Blues and Roots Festivals & Blues on Broadbeach to name but a few.
Elrington has proven himself as one the hardest-working artists currently on the Australian scene, and over the last 20 years since the inception of his career as an 18-year old in Adelaide, has released 9 albums & toured excessively throughout Australia, the United States, Canada, United Kingdom & New Zealand. Self-managed independent tours to the US have seen him grace stages of some of the most prestigious blues clubs in America, including Biscuits & Blues in San Francisco, JJs Blues in San Jose, The Cat Club on Hollwood’s Sunset Strip, Los Angeles, The Sand Dollar Blues Lounge in Las Vegas & Sullivan Hall in New York City.
After a jam-packed decade of extensive touring throughout not only Australia, but also New Zealand, Nashville & China for the Concrete & Grass festival in Shanghai, opening for US rock legends The Doobie Brothers in front of a sold-out Tivoli Theatre in Brisbane, and also taking out the prestigious Singer/Songwriter of the year crown at the Australian Independent Music Awards in Sydney, Mike also had the honour of getting a No.1 spot on the Australian National Blues/Roots Radio charts with his groundbreaking, genre-bending new album Aftershock in 2020.
2022 saw Mike’s biggest year on the road yet, with more extensive touring all over Australia & a debut European tour where he was fortunate enough to appear at the prestigious Tonder Festival in Denmark.
