Mitchell Creek Rock N Blues Fest - Andy Cowan and Big Mamas Door

Andy Cowan and Big Mamas Door

 Andy Cowan is one of Australia's foremost performing songwriters. He possesses a voice that invites comparison with the blues of Muddy Waters, and the soul of Ray Charles. Cowan's piano and keyboard playing contain both energy and melodic beauty. His songwriting and performing skills give him a strength and quality that define him as the complete artistic entity.  

"…Cowan shows himself to be a great songwriter and musician" (Ed Nimmervoll - Music Australia Guide Magazine)


Cowan is very excited to be currently rehearsing on the Sunshine Coast with his new band "Andy Cowan and Big Mamas Door". (See videos in the right column)
