Fotis Vergopoulos returns to Melbourne for a unique rebetiko extravaganza in the heart of Brunswick! Leading this all-star local line up of musicians, Fotis represents the next generation of talent from Greece and his musicianship and feel for rebetika (Greek Blues) is inimitable.
Fotis was initiated into the world of music at the age of 6 by his father, Nikos, an inaugural member of the Apodimi Kompania. He has toured Europe extensively as well as Africa, Australia and New Zealand. He currently lives in Athens where he has performed with many notable artists including Stellios Vamvakaris, Martha Fritzila, Socratis Malamas and Manolis Pappos to name a few.
Joining Fotis on stage are special guests and stalwarts of the Melbourne rebetika scene: Kostas Papapanagiotou - Bouzouki and vocals
Stavrina Dimitriou – Vocals
Wayne Simmons - Double bass
Con Kalamaras - Guitar
