DUSTIER THAN EVER - A SHOW IN HONOUR OF SLIM.
Dustier than Ever - A Show in Honour of Slim is a 90 minute Show which has been performed numerous times in New South Wales and Queensland by Chris Cook and The Chris Cook Band - the same line up for 8 years. It is presented with the approval and endorsement of Joy McKean and the Slim Dusty Foundation in Kempsey.
Chris Cook plays energetic country guitar, skilful and toe-tapping fiddle and highly polished bluegrass/ hillbilly banjo. With Rob Renfrew on double bass and James Cantwell on drums and percussion, Chris traces the history of Slim's progression from his early days at NuIla Creek through to his recognition as an international performer. The Show provides the opportunity to hear a good story about Australia. It showcases a selection of Slim's songs - respectable renditions of Slim Dusty repertoire -interspersed with some of Chris Cook's memories from his years of friendship with Slim. Chris performs with infectious vitality, inimitable style and musical flair.
No two Shows are ever the same.
Chris Cook wrote three songs for Slim Dusty- When the Country's Wet, Diggin' a Hole in my Guitar and Rollin' down the Road. Slim has been a big and very important influence in Chris's music. He has followed him all of his life.
