Ken Myers joined the Brisbane Steel Guitar Club in 2010/2011 when he immigrated from Canberra ACT to Caboolture Queensland. Ken is a humble character with not a lot to say about himself and his Pedal Steel Guitar. However I managed to get some notes from him so I will endeavour to put them into a Biography for him.
Ken was self taught with a little supervision from a friend who was also self taught so between them they came up with a very good Pedal Steel Player with a very nice touch and feel for the instrument. He began to learn in 1970.
Ken played with many bands while he was living in Canberra and toured with Owen Blundell, Brian Young and Grant Lukis. Ken has a long list of some of the Artists he backed mostly at Country Festivals, Pubs and Clubs. The list of the main Artists are: Gina Jefferies, Becky Cole, Terry Gordon, Chad Morgan, Reg Lyndsay, Jimmy Little, the late Norm Bodkin, Gottani Sisters, Ivy Summerfields, Reg Poole, Grant Lukis and the Chook Raffle Band. Ken was also Support Act for Dr Hook.
Ken did us proud when he opened the 2011 Festival
One can see from the above line up that Ken is obviously an excellent player and a very respected person whom we are pleased to have in our Club.
Just for the record Ken is a great cook and bakes a mean sponge cake!! Keep them coming Ken.
