We are excited to announce that Fiji-born didgeridoo and stringed-instrument virtuoso Jay Hoad will be bringing his unique show to town on Sunday.

Jay has spent the last six years touring around the globe, following the sun and his inspiration for music throughout the Caribbean, Southeast Asia, Fiji, Canada and North America, keeping up a relentless touring schedule whilst passionately learning about third-world culture and every style of music he can sink his teeth into.

The result: A very funky and high-energy show that sees Jay sitting in a cockpit of instruments including didgeridoo, Weissenborn lap steel, dulcimer, guitar, harmonica, ocarina, djembe, percussion, loops, voice and then some. Mouth, hands and feet work in harmony as Jay fuses many genres of music, creating a sound that’s hard to believe comes from just one person.

In 2010 Jay was honoured to perform with Bob Marley’s Wailers on the northeast leg of their USA tour and has also recently toured with USA super-groups Carbon Leaf and the Temptations.

Jay is currently touring worldwide, supporting the release of his second independent album Stories For The Soul.

You can catch Jay at the Sheoak Shack on Sunday.
