Xavier Rudd at the Orange Peel

Xavier Rudd at Orange Peel

Xavier Rudd

Part multi-instrumentalist, part mythical creature, singer-songwriter/surfer/environmentalist/cultural activist Xavier Rudd took the didgeridoo from tribal instrument to legitimate dance club beat-maker. The musician, who lives in Australia, “gradually refined his globally influenced collage of world music — a matchless mixture of reggae, funk, blues, folk, and nearly every other sort of song with the ability to stimulate people’s spirits,” according to a press release. Spirit Bird, released in 2012, includes “Follow the Sun” (listen) — his biggest single to date. That song is set to a video lush with Australian wildlife and glorious beaches that’ll have you making vacation plans. But before you book a plane ticket, catch Rudd’s show at The Orange Peel on Saturday, June 21, at 9 p.m. $24 advance/$26 day of show. Ash Grunwald also performs. theorangepeel.net.
