Ash Grunwald is a stalwart of the blues movement in this part of the world.
After nine albums and countless awards, he's been in the Aussie music scene a long time.
His latest album Mojo has a bit of star power, with the Teskey brothers making a couple of appearances.
And it's not only music, with him and his wife setting up company Earth Bottles which aims to reduce our plastic use.
Ash is doing a tour here in November and joined Mike Hosking in studio for a fascinating chat and even performed one of his songs live.
