Dutch Tilders

(29 August 194123 April 2011)

Dutch Tilders died of cancer on 23 April 2011 (age 69 years). He was regarded as Australia's "Godfather of Blues". He encouraged and inspired musicians across Australia, during his 50 year career, and not necessarily just in the blues genre. Dutch was one of the first blues artists that I had seen and heard when I was a teenager. I have been to many of his concerts either at hotels, folk/blues clubs, festivals. I saw Tilders tour with blues greats including John Mayall, Sonny Terry and Brownie McGhee, among others. And I had also had the privilege to interview him on the radio. His memory and music will live on..
