ROADS cut due to heavy rain could have been disaster for Phil Emmanuel ahead of his performance at the Agnes Water Blues and Roots Festival last Sunday.
But having two members of his band on the wrong side of the closures was a lucky break for two Rockhampton teenagers, who were asked to fill in for the final set of the three-day event, until the band arrived.
It wasn't the first time Kirsten and Logan Brewster had played with the legend of guitar, after performing three songs with Phil at a jam session at the event last year, but it was the first time filling in for his band.
A Year 11 student at Emmaus College, 15-year-old Logan said playing the drums with Phil and his bass player, alongside his 19-year-old sister on guitar, was exciting.
"It was a great experience - to play with someone like that," Logan said.
"It was a really good crowd, and they appreciated the music."
As well as playing beside Phil, Logan said he was thrilled to meet Diesel backstage after his performance on the first night of the festival.
A country music fan, Logan has hopes to study music at university after finishing Year 12.
As well as playing in his own band Generation 3, Logan has played twice at the Nanango Country Music Muster and is lined up to perform there again this September.
"The first time I was a bit nervous, I was 13, but now I have done it two years in a row."
Coming from a musical family, an uncle the lead guitarist with John Williamson and his grandfather also a professional guitarist, Logan has been playing drums for 11 years.
His next big gig is with Golden Guitar winners Dean Perrett and Jeff Brown when they perform in Rockhampton in March.
