Raccoon Dog

Hailing from Logan, Utah, Ben Wilson brings his original Americana Folk Blues influence to a beautiful pocket of Australia know as Lilydale, Tasmania. His strength as a songwriter is well recognised around the state performing at a swag of festivals including; a festival called PANAMA, Falls Festival, Taste of Tasmania, Dark Mofo, Party in the Paddock and Something In The Valley, to name a few. Well-travelled and well-seasoned, Ben has assembled an Americana Blues machine known as Raccoon Dog featuring Rudy Valentino (Drums), Henry Rippon (Bass) and Thomas Mitchell (Guitar), all the ingredients to bake a seriously hot band cake. With over 40 years of combined collective experience and accolades, Raccoon Dog is without doubt evolving into a unique and prominent part of the Tasmanian music scene.

The Unconformity acknowledges the palawa people as the original and traditional custodians of lutruwita / Tasmania. We commit to working respectfully to honour their ongoing cultural and spiritual connections to this land.
