WITH all the Olympics excitement in London at the moment, it’s very easy to forget that there is a world out there beyond the medal chasing supreme beings that are our national Olympians.
But there’s one Aussie musician who will be performing in the English capital this week, who is equally worthy of headline grabbing brilliance. Xavier Rudd, that most magnificently gifted of Australian musicians, will be performing at Camden’s Koko tomorrow night (Wednesday 8 August).
The man is a musical masterpiece, with the ability to play many different types of instruments from guitars, harmonicas and didgeridoos to stomp boxes and percussion. Weaving together blues, reggae, indigenous and folk music – Rudd is famous the world over and tremendously popular with Australians (and Aussie expats). With hits like Let Me Be, Follow The Sun, Come Let Go and songs from his new Spirit Bird album, Rudd is getting ready to rock London in his unique and refreshing way.
Don’t miss Xavier Rudd at London’s Koko from 7pm, Wednesday 8 August.
