Peter Hicks and the Blue Licks

The Blues Licks aPete Hicksre a tight combo formed around Peter Hicks' ragtime, delta slide, blues harp and rockabilly guitar, backed by the feisty gut-thumping bass of Graeme Beer and the slick sticks of one of Hobart's hardest working musicians, Sean Brady.

They mix-mash the ragtime and piedmont styles of Mississippi John Hurt, Blind Blake and Robert Johnson, acoustic and overdriven harmonica sounds and a little of the country bluesabilly Gretsch guitar sounds of Brian Setzer.Pete Hicks and the Blue Licks

Peter has been playing country blues since he first hit Hobart in 1998 with Shake Sugaree and also in a ten-year residency with Coyote Serenade at the Lark Distillery. 2011 saw him performing regularly with the Blues Licks at the Republic Bar and at the Forth Blues Festival.
