A Chris Wilson benefit is happening next month

Celebrating the incredible blues musician with a huge night of performances.

The life and music of Australian bluesman Chris Wilson will be celebrated by an array of musicians and friends at the forthcoming Chris Wilson benefit, which comes in the wake of the singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist's recent cancer diagnosis. 

The benefit, hosted by Cherry Bar's James Young, will feature performances by Barb Waters, Barry Palmer, Steve Lucas, Kerri Simpson, Ash Davies, Jerome Smith, Tim Rogers, Matt Dwyer, Shane O'Mara, Dave Hogan, Jo Jo Smith, DJ Max Crawdaddy and many more special guests yet to be announced. 

Though Wilson is not well enough to attend the show himself, the benefit will raise money for him and his family in order to provide financial support during this difficult time. The event, which will take place at the end of next month at the Corner Hotel, is set to be filled with heartfelt tributes and loving performances so be sure to come down and show your support. 

The Chris Wilson benefit will take place at the Corner Hotel on Friday August 24.
