Chris Cook believes the single most significant influence on his musical development is Slim Dusty. Everything musical about him is based on Slim Dusty’s ethics. He remembers hearing Slim’s music all of his life and he grew up playing and loving it.
Chris plays energetic country guitar, skilful and toe-tapping fiddle and highly polished bluegrass/hillbilly banjo. He has a huge repertoire of songs and has said he possesses “a lifetime of songs in his head”.
Chris is an enthusiastic and engaging performer with over 35years experience whose infectious vitality, distinctive and inimitable style and musical competence ensure an entertaining and enjoyable show. He is backed by Robert Renfrew on double bass and Jamie Cantwell on drums and percussion.
