Dustier Than Ever
Chris Cook Sings Slim Dusty

Chris Cook believes the single most significant influence on his musical development is Slim Dusty. Everything musical about him is based on Slim Dusty’s ethics. He remembers hearing Slim’s music all of his life and he grew up playing and loving it.

Chris saw Slim Dusty in concert about 10 times. He vividly remembers the first time when he was about 9 years old at Coffs Harbour Civic Centre. Chris has a collection of 78rpm Slim Dusty records and owns all of his albums on CD.  He is one of Slim Dusty’s greatest fans.

Chris plays energetic country guitar, skilful and toe-tapping fiddle and highly polished bluegrass/hillbilly banjo.He has a huge repertoire of songs and has said he possesses "a lifetime of songs in his head".

Chris first met Slim Dusty in Coffs Harbour in 1977. They met up again at Mataranka in the Northern Territory about 20 years ago and went fishing together on the Roper River. A firm friendship was established between them which remained strong for the last 12 years of Slim’s life.

Slim Dusty recorded 3 of Chris Cook’s songs – “When the Country’s Wet” on “Ringer from the Top End” in 1992; “Diggin’ a Hole in my Guitar” (which was the second highest rotation of country singles on FM radio in Australia at the time  and which was nominated for an Apra award, the presentation ceremony for which both Slim and Chris attended in 2000 ) on  Slim’s album “99” in 1999 and “Rollin’ Down the Road” (with Wayne Bromwich ) on Slim’s posthumously released album “ Columbia Lane - The Last Sessions" in 2003.

Chris is an enthusiastic and engaging performer with over 30 years experience whose infectious vitality, distinctive and inimitable style and musical competence ensure an entertaining and enjoyable show. He is backed by John Tester on double bass/ electric bass and Jamie Cantwell on drums and percussion.

Chris Cook hasn’t got a favourite Slim Dusty song but he sure can sing a lot of them. He has been singing them for many years and is well worth hearing when you get the chance.
