Daniel Champagne, Mullum Drill Hall, Saturday
An old friend of mine used to say: say no to champagne, you say no to life! While this may be a provocative statement for committed non-drinkers, finally they can pick up when Champagne plays the Drill Hall.
Daniel Champagne’s phenomenal guitar abilities often make him sound more like a three-piece band than a solo performer, pushing the instrument to beyond its boundaries, and Daniel’s now-signature explosion of two-hand tapping, body percussion and fiery runs in a variety of different tunings, alongside sublime jazzy finger-picking and tasteful improvisation have become hallmarks of his impressive live shows.
Reaching into folk, blues, classical, jazz and other stylings, Daniel delivers crowd-pleasing sets that include powerful foot-stomping numbers, experimental compositions, bags of originals through to century-old folk and blues songs. He has shared stages with some of the finest acts here and internationally,
Daniel has gained a deserved reputation for dropping jaws, breaking guitars and making audiences buzz wherever he goes.
Saturday at the Drill Hall in Mullumbimby, 7pm.
