Bio

Multi award-winning songwriter and lap slide specialist Andrew Winton shows you how a cypress tree root from Alabama became the Lucky 13 double-neck, 13-string lap monster, in his innovative and captivating display of acoustic music, suburban songstories and vocal mayhem! Andrew is known for his on-stage warmth, humour, and stellar musicianship. He is also recognised for his diverse musical styles with influences ranging through blues & roots, folk, jazz, gospel, funk & country/bluegrass. Andrew continues to attract audiences overseas and at home with his incredible lap slide playing and unique collaborative instrument designs. Andrew has toured Australia & internationally numerous times, and was named the Australian Songwriter of the Year 2012 by the Australian Songwriter’s Association in conjunction with APRA.

"Andrew Winton has been recognised, both here and overseas, as one of this country's finest lap-slide guitarists" (Sydney Morning Herald)
