Xavier Rudd at Boomerang

Xavier Rudd, Australian musician, activist and surfer, is an artist of both imagination and conscience. Xavier Rudd’s ability to marry uplifting melodies with thought-provoking themes and concepts produces music that, one way or another, makes you feel good.

xavier-rudd-With an array of guitars, yidakis (didgeridoos), stomp box and percussion, Rudd re-introduced a lot of Australians to the sounds and stories of the land’s original owners, while introducing the rest of the world to an entirely new sound altogether. And, over the course of a decade, he has taken this sound to every corner of the globe; producing six studio albums, two live albums, multiple ARIA nominations and a global fanbase of likeminded souls.

Xavier Rudd will be hitting the stage at the Boomerang Festival this Saturday.

One response to “Xavier Rudd at Boomerang”

  1. This is what we need: ‘Artists with Conscience’ not just ego, but conscience about themselves, their work, their special role in the world and how they can make others more conscious, and the world a better place. This guy’s obviously got it, he’s understood it, and has something valuable to offer. Performers can be fantastic change-makers! How refreshing. Way to go, Xavier Rudd!

A note from the editorial team

Some of The Echo’s editorial team: journalists Paul Bibby and Aslan Shand, editor Hans Lovejoy, photographer Jeff Dawson and Mandy Nolan

The Echo has never underestimated the intelligence and passion of its readers. In a world of corporate banality and predictability, The Echo has worked hard for more than 30 years to help keep Byron and the north coast unique with quality local journalism and creative ideas. We think this area needs more voices, reasoned analysis and ideas than just those provided by News Corp, lifestyle mags, Facebook groups and corporate newsletters.

The Echo is one hundred per cent locally owned and one hundred per cent independent. As you have probably gathered from what is happening in the media industry, it is not cheap to produce a weekly newspaper and a daily online news service of any quality.

We have always relied entirely on advertising to fund our operations, but often loyal readers who value our local, independent journalism have asked how they could help ensure our survival.

Any support you can provide to The Echo will make an enormous difference. You can make a one-off contribution or a monthly one. With your help, we can continue to support a better informed local community and a healthier democracy for another 30 years.”
