Mitchell Creek Rock 'N' Blues Fest

Stevie Paige

From the prestigious stage of the Melbourne Concert Hall as a classical guitarist, to the famous Beale Street in Memphis as a blues singer, Stevie's career has been anything but typical. A graduate from the Victorian College of the Arts and with a post graduate offer to study at London's Royal College of Music, the future seemed all but set. An unexpected encounter with a campus Blues band one night derailed this classical musician, and almost overnight the playing of concertos with orchestras was traded for a steel string guitar and stomp box. Today this Chain and Vic/Tas award winner is widely regarded as one the best blues voices you will hear anywhere in the world.
