Who is Craig Atkins?

Award Winning Roots*. Blues and Folk Multi-Instrumentalist Craig Atkins is a 'one-man band' songwriter and performer based in Adelaide, SA (Kuarna Country), that regularly tours the country with his set up consisting of various Acoustic Guitars, Lap Slide, Cigar Box Guitars, Didgeridoos, Harmonica, Foot Percussion and Loop and Effect Pedals.

With influences such as Paul Kelly, Joe Purdy, Harry Manx, Xavier Rudd and numerous Blues Masters to name but a few, Craig's live performances weave through various styles from chilled finger-picking folk & Alt country stories, to delta slide blues, through to rollicking folk foot tappers and stomping jumping roots and "Didgeriblues", with lyrical content covering his aspects of life, love and loss and observations of the world we all live in.
