Three-time ARIA award winning Australian guitarist-songwriter-vocalist-producer, Jeff Lang has built a reputation for making startling music that is accomplished, intricate, gutsy, melodic and loaded with soul.

Often taking unexpected turns, he has consistently inspired his audiences by creating a stylistically diverse catalogue of over 25 albums.

He is coming to the Blue Mountains as part of his Patreon tour. Lang will craft a completely new song list each night and over two long sets and will play songs from across his entire catalogue, often including rarely heard songs.

Lang said: "I'm hitting the road, traveling all around the country playing shows and letting people know about my new Patreon Archives project. I'm using the platform to unearth a hefty treasure trove of unreleased material spanning my whole career.

"I started thinking recently about the mountain of stuff that I've been accruing along the journey making records and playing shows, so I had a look in the vault, and there's a lot of unreleased music floating around in there.

"Everyone knows that Ye Olde Music Biz has been in a state of upheaval since the dawn of the interwebs, but I reckon that there's something good possible now on this here Patreon site."

Lang is not one to be easily pegged, though in a general sense it's fair to say he largely trades in roots-oriented rock; wider reaching in collaborations with the likes of roving guitar anthropologist Bob Brozman, American blues-rocker Chris Whitley, India's desert-dwellers Maru Tarang and world music virtuosos Bobby Singh and Mamadou Diabate.

Lang's work with the latter won the 2010 ARIA for best world music album, while he and Brozman took one home for best blues and roots music album in 2002. Lang received that same award on his own in 2012.

On Saturday, September 21, Lang appears at Wentworth Falls School of Arts, in a thrilling concert presented by Music Hunter. Doors open at 7.30pm, concert at 8pm.

Wentworth Falls School of Arts, 217 Great Western Highway, is a family friendly event where under 18 music lovers are welcome. Food and drinks available. Discounted tickets with pre-bookings. Book via musichunter.com.au or at the door, if not sold out.
