Take your mind back to a time before mindless 120 beats per minute pop dominated the airwaves - to the early 20th century – when the raw sounds of harmonicas and guitars meant real music for the people. This was a deep, dark, and tantalizingly evil mix of rural blues that was played and recorded by musicians throughout the southern states of the USA and broadcast over the radio waves even further. Meanwhile – quite a few years later – and even further down south, Dom Turner (Backsliders) and Ian Collard (Collard, Greens & Gravy) became obsessed with the sound and spent most of their adult lives studying and playing it. Working as a Guitar/Harmonica duo, they strip the music back to it’s rural beginnings. At the heart of their sound is the north Mississippi hill-country music of Mississippi Fred McDowell and Johnny Woods mixed in with the pre-war blues sounds of artists such as Skip James, Blind Willie Mc Tell and Leadbelly.

Dom Turner is best known as guitarist/ vocalist, founding member and key songwriter of the iconic Australian blues group, The Backsliders. Dom’s influences are many and varied – a blend of delta blues, piedmont blues, rock, dub and sounds of Asia. He is a highly regarded speaker on blues music and has guested on ABC radio programs (including guest presenting Radio National’s ‘Music Deli’) and presented music workshops at festivals and in universities (both nationally and internationally). In 2004 Dom was voted ‘Blues Songwriter of the Year’ at the Australian Blues Awards. Dom has toured as a solo artist in the USA, playing and teaching blues guitar at Augusta Blues week in West Virginia, and in 2006, touring Mexico with US blues greats, Del Ray and Steve James. His trademark ‘slide’ guitar sound can be heard on myriad session recordings and his songs have featured on the ABC TV programme 'Seachange’, as well as the soundtrack to Tim Winton’s best-selling novel, ‘Dirt Music. Most recently, in addition to touring and recoding with Backsliders, Dom has been working on a cross-cultural music recording with Vietnamese stringed instrument master, Kim Sinh’. Dom Turner was the artist in residence on ABC radio 702 Morning’s program in July 2009.

Ian Collard is a gifted vocalist and harmonica player and winner of the Australian Harmonica championship in 1996. Ian is known primarily for his work with the multi award-winning Australian blues band, ‘Collard Greens and Gravy’ and has toured Australia and the United States with the group. Ian also tours and records, with Dom, as a part-time member of Backsliders. In addition, Ian is a sought after session musician, lending his soulful dark harmonica tones to recordings by a range of artists from Jeff Lang to Ash Grunwald to CW Stoneking.
