?? Get ready for an evening of electrifying blues as Ian Collard takes the stage at The Westernport on Sunday, June 30th, at 5 pm. ??

As a key member of the Aria award-winning Blues trio Collard Greens and Gravy, Ian Collard has cemented his position as one of Australia’s foremost blues artists. ?? With a lifelong passion for the harmonica, Ian found inspiration in the music of legends like Little Walter, Sonny Boy Williamson, and Sonny Terry, propelling him into the vibrant world of the blues.

In recent years, Ian has mesmerized audiences with his solo performances, effortlessly handling vocals, guitar, and harmonica duties simultaneously. Channeling the spirit of blues greats such as Dr. Ross and Jimmy Reed, Ian delivers an authentic down-home blues sound, showcased in his 2014 release "Swamp Stomp and Boogie."

Alongside his work with Collard Greens and Gravy and Three Kings, Ian collaborates with Australia’s premier blues band, the Backsliders. His harmonica prowess has graced albums by esteemed Australian artists like Claire Bowditch, Jeff Lang, and Ash Grunwald, with standout performances even featured on Baz Luhrmann's international hit "Everybody’s Free to Wear Sunscreen."

In 2012, Ian's talents reached new heights when he sang and played harmonica with the Australian Ballet as part of their 50th birthday celebration in the Ballet "Swee dee dee."

Don't miss this opportunity to witness Ian Collard's soulful blues mastery at The Westernport—a night filled with raw emotion, infectious rhythms, and unforgettable melodies.
