Chris Altmann live at the Merri Creek Tavern (SOLD OUT)
AboutChris Altmann returns to Melbourne for the first time in five years!
Originally from the Adelaide Hills, Chris now resides in Hamilton, Ontario, but has deep roots in the Melbourne scene, having moved here with country rock group The Drowners, then forming critically acclaimed and much-loved full-tilt rock'n'roll band The Vandas (with Mikey Madden, Gus Agars and Julien Chick) before progressing onto a solo career steeped in Americana.
Altmann is an in-demand session player in his adopted homeland of Canada, and has been nominated three times by their Country Music Association for Pedal Steel Guitar Player of the Year.
Recently Chris has shifted his focus to composing for TV and film and in 2021 he started releasing a series of new singles, challenging listeners' expectations of how a pedal steel guitar can sound.
Join us in welcoming Chris back to the town he called home for many years and where many know the power of his musicality and song-writing.
