Blending blues with soul and folk, Melbourne, Australia’s Lloyd Spiegel has a musical flair that is an emotional and visual roller coaster. His masterful command of the guitar, both dynamic and expressive, works in tandem with his powerful, full-bodied vocals to deliver a show full to the brim with dazzling technical wizardry, grounded storytelling, and wicked humour. Whether performing original numbers or honouring those who have inspired him, Lloyd’s deep connection to the blues and profound respect for its traditions are at the core of everything he does. A 14-time Australian Blues Award winner, he has studied the blues extensively and has created his own version of modern blues. Lloyd brought his amazing playing and hilarious storytelling to our 2023 Weekends at the Opera House series, and we welcome him to the Folk Harbour Festival for the first time.
