Sunday Soultrain at Davey’s in Frankston is recognised as one of Melbourne’s integral Sunday sessions presenting some of Australia’s finest Blues, Soul and Rock’n Roll artists ‘Live & Free’ every week. On Sunday July 24 Soultrain welcomes back sentimental gentleman Geoff Achison & The Souldiggers for an afternoon of heartfelt soul and enough funky grooves to wash away your winter blues.

Locals love Geoff and his background tells us why.  Born on Phillip Island, Achison taught himself guitar in the isolation of rural Australia and forged his own path to a successful career with an explosive blues/funk style and top-notch vocals.

However, Peninsula fans aren’t the only admirers Achison has earned along the way, having toured relentlessly throughout the U.K, U.S and Australia. With each country toured, our blues wizard performs his popular acoustic solo shows or enlists the best local musicians to recreate his brainchild band The Souldiggers as he goes.

Forming the group, Souldiggers is meant to convey the tapping into of ones soul for honesty and truth, and this is expressed through their music and Achison’s hard work, which continued in 1994 setting up his own record label Jupiter II Records.

These early recordings were received well by fans and critics, which led to him representing the Melbourne Blues Society at the International Blues Challenge in Memphis winning the coveted Albert King Award for his guitar skill.

Since then, he has won a swag of awards, using Australia as a home base keeping fans enthused with several live releases from different corners of the globe.

Sunday Soultrain presents Geoff Achison & The Souldiggers on Sunday July 24 at Davey’s Hotel, Nepean Hwy in Frankston. Geoff and the boys perform three big sets from 3pm with no cover charge. For details on who’s coming up next month keep a lookout for Sunday Soultrain on Facebook or visit
