Rarely do you meet an earthy and engaging storyteller with a stunning singing voice who is also a multi- instrumentalist, brilliant exponent of the guitar and has the ability to light up an audience with his wit.
A New Zealand born, Australian bred, Berlin based Pop/Soul/Blues musician, globetrotter and adventurer, Bobby Longstaff has a style that encapsulates blues, neo-soul, pop and raw narrative-driven folk.
After working Australia’s tough but rewarding pub circuit, he packed his bags for Berlin, a city which he now calls home. In between his musical accomplishments he likes a challenge, having now hitchhiked across three continents, toured Indian and African orphanages and hospitals, ventured to Antarctica and travelled overland from Berlin to Australia by bicycle, train and ship.
Convinced by the idea of slow travelling, the singer/songwriter did the German release tour for his album ‘Boogaloo’ on a solar boat and took a trip through the US on a custom electric trike. He also has been experimenting with the tiny house and the zero waste food movements.
Powerful vocals with humorous lyrics, passionate guitar playing and charm make him a one-man-groove- machine that runs with or without amplification. #AgnesBluesFest can’t wait to welcome him to the Marquee Stage in 2023.
Catch Bobby Longstaff on the #AgnesBluesFest main Marquee Stage 11.00-11.45am Saturday 18 February 2023 https://roblongstaff.de/
