Xavier Rudd: Bow Down

Though the international audience is familiar with the didgeridoo and other sounds of Aboriginal Australia, singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Xavier Rudd brings new light to the culture of his homeland. He shares his ideas about topics such as humanity and the environment through socially conscious lyrics, and while his songs are slow and thoughtful, they still have a relaxed and peaceful atmosphere, giving them the quality of beach tunes similar to those of Jimmy Buffett. He will play at City Winery July 23 and 24 before heading down to Asbury Park July 25 for a performance at The Stone Pony.
