Pottsville teenager Tom Dodd has scored a chance to play at this year’s Bluesfest, courtesy of the busking competition.
The Kingscliff High School student says he got into playing guitar ‘when I was 14 because of my Dad’s playing the guitar when I was younger’.
He was encouraged to enter the grommet category of the Bluesfest Busking competition. Chosen as one of three finalists, he will play at The Beach Hotel this afternoon from 4pm to 6pm and at Bluesfest on Sunday 8 April.
