Bo Jenkins Chinderah Tavern Sunday

Bo Jenkins arrived back here in Australia in the late 90s in what has been called America’s loss and Australia’s gain. He has been constantly touring to packed houses and has developed such an affinity with the Aussie psyche he has even dedicated a song to the memory of Ned Kelly, which will be released on his latest CD.

Using mostly Australian-made guitars, Cargill, Cruiser, and Kunkel, his love for Australia comes through in his lyrics as well. The beautiful instrumental Mt Eliza and the eeriness of Who’s to Blame address the problems of substance abuse and serve to illustrate Bo’s diversity as a songwriter and guitarist of more than one dimension. Bo’s music is a fusion of country rock with slide and blues licks thrown in to create a fullness and dimension and a sound that reflects Bo’s greatest ethos, that music comes from the heart.

See Bo at the Chinderah Tavern on Sunday.
