Peter Gelling

Peter has been known to tinker with the guitar, harmonica, piano, sax and a number of other instruments. His album "Bluestime" was nominated for an Aria award for best blues album. He's rather good.

Stephan Richter

As well as being a superb cellist and fretless bass player, I think it's safe to say that Stephan is also Australia's best Swiss didgeridoo player.

Craig Lauritsen

As a drummer/percussionist, Craig's job is to hit things in a timely fashion, and he does it brilliantly. Craig has played on countless albums (two of them nominated for Aria awards), has written several instructional books on percussion and is in high demand in the Adelaide music scene. He also makes cymbals.

Geoff Bridgland

Geoff Bridgland played the 5 string Banjo on the iconic "Plastic Jesus" track on the album. Geoff and Mandolinist brother John, play with 3 times Australian Bluegrass Banjo Champion, Trev Warner, versatile double bass player James Sked (who by the way, is a respected jazz musician) and bluegrass guitarist, Nick Cawthorne in the bluegrass band, Bluegrass Junction.

Lyndon Gray

Lyndon Gray played acoustic bass on the CD. Lyndon is a member of The Audreys - enough said!

Cat Johns

Cat Johns did most of the backing harmony vocals on the CD. As well as having the voice of an angel, Cat is an accomplished sound engineer and with her partner Chris Lau have their own band, Temple Tigers, playing original songs.

John Munro

John Munro plays mandolin on the CD. John and Tinfish played their first professional gig together as a duo in the mid sixties. John is well-known for his work with Eric Bogle ( as well as being a driving force behind the Celtic band Colcannon. John recently released his first solo CD: "Plying My Trade" which is available through Greentrax

Kate Meehan & Skip Landy

Kate Meehan and Skip Landy are an established blues duo and they both contributed to the CD. Watch out for their forthcoming CD: "In My Sister's Shoes".

Damian Carr

Damian plays lead guitar on the Willie Dixon song "I Don't Trust Nobody When It Comes To My Girl". This was Damian's first excursion into the blues genre but going from Peter Gelling's enthusiastic response to his playing, we will be hearing more from him. He is currently working on his own CD of all-original instrumental tunes completely different from Tinfish George's work, and very exciting stuff. This clever guy also did all the design and artwork for "Try Before You Die" and the Meehan/Landy/Gelling CD: "My Sister's Shoes".
