Juzzie Smith is a pure musician with a great feel for the blues and nature. He started playing the harmonica at the age of thirteen, and by the age of 23 had won the coveted Golden Harmonica at the Tamworth Country Music Festival and the Byron Bay Blues Blowout.
Now an incredibly talented One Man Band who plays music all over the world with a distinct feeling of freedom pulsing from within it. As you listen you feel the joy and playfulness loved by all ages and from all walks of life. With a combination of Slide, Cigar Box and Acoustic guitars, harmonica, voice and Stompbox, this unique music is hard to place in just one category. It’s bluesy, folky, country music with a distinct passionate world flavour. He has refined his art to allow his body to become the conductor of his own orchestra playing up to five instruments at once. This music is ‘play-full’, fun and infectious; it makes your feet start tapping, your hips start moving and leaves you feeling inspired!
