Victor Wainwright & The Train

Friday 10 April 2020

Although he started his career playing honky-tonk music, pianist and singer Victor Wainwright broadened his musical style over the years and now includes virtually every corner of the blues. Growing up in a family of blues musicians, he formed his own bands from a young age. After enjoying time with previous bands Southern Hospitality and Victor Wainwright & the WildRoots, he formed The Train in 2017. The band released their self-titled debut album the year after, which received a Grammy Award nomination and 2018’s Best Played Contemporary Blues Album of the Year Award. Wainwright himself has won numerous Piano Player of the Year awards.
