Geoff Achison @ The Hawth reviewed by Brian O’Connor

Geoff Achison and the Soul Diggers 

The Hawth, Crawley

Friday 17th March 2017 

  

    Australian Geoff has made a welcome return to these shores after a few years, with his usual mix of hard blues containing quite a sprinkling of the jazz influence.  Many of his solos on guitar would not go amiss in a jazz gig, and Paul Johnson on keyboards (new to me) was quite a revelation.  Andy Hodge was playing only his second gig with Geoff and fitted in with consummate ease.  Sam Kelly on drums is versatile in many genres, and always a joy to watch and listen too.  His sheer enthusiasm never flags and is complete with a quite endless range of facial expressions.  A terrific two hours of blues, jazz, and simply, good entertainment.  Welcome back Geoff.
