Racoon Dog

RACCOON DOG. Based in Tasmania, Australia and is the spirit animal of song writer and US born Ben Wilson. Expect to hear some Americana vibes from songs written, performed and recorded by Ben over an 8 year period. A retrospect of being homeless and busking in Portland Oregon to finding his feet in Tasmania, Australia. In the last year, Raccoon Dog has quickly gained traction on the apple isle, playing all the major venues and festivals like A Festival Called Panama, Falls, Mona, Dark Mofo to name a few. Now they’re coming across the strait to find their audience in Melbourne.

Joining them will be Tassie up and comers Je Bahl and Melbourne locals Call The Doctor and Evening News of The Beatnik Collective. Expect a night of great songwriting, meaningful lyrics and blues/folk/rock and funk!
