Eric Sardinas and Pete Feenstra

ERIC SARDINAS

Sunday 29 January, 20:00  (Tuesday 31 January, 21:00 repeat)

Slide guitarist and singer-songwriter Eric Sardinas picked up a guitar at age six. He was inspired by the energy of roots music from his mum’s soul, Motown, gospel, and early rock n’ roll collection. From his elder brother, classic rock was always being played. Sardinas reflects, “Music was always heard in the house. I woke up to, and fell asleep to it. Still do”. In his teens, he submerged himself in the Blues.

Since the late-90s’ Sardinas’ seven albums have displayed a distinct style that musically pushes the boundaries of rock and blues.
