One of Australia’s most highly regarded performers and songwriters, Ben Salter, is appearing at the Gooloogong Log Cabin Hall as part of his upcoming national tour.
As well as being a founding member of Giants of Science, The Gin Club and the three-time ARIA-nominated Wilson Pickers, Salter is an accomplished artist in his own right.
His debut solo album The Cat (2011) and follow up The Stars My Destination (2015) have established his penchant for eclectic, esoteric arrangements and sounds that take in elements of rock, pop, jazz, folk, country and beyond, whilst all maintaining a coherence and inimitable melodic style.
Gooloogong is possibly the smallest venue on Salter’s national tour with Ben saying: "I'm good mates with Craig and Jo who run the night.
“I played (at the Log Cabin Hall) once before and it was absolutely awesome so I thought why not? It's a lovely spot,” Salter said.
Salter has collaborated, written and performed with artists as diverse as Mick Thomas (Weddings, Parties, Anything), Tim Rogers (You Am I, The Temperance Union) and Bernard Fanning (Powderfinger).
His Gooloogong solo appearance on October 28 from 7pm is part of his tour to promote Back Yourself, his third solo album.
