The Green Room on the Bluesfest site, is set to go and will host Xavier Rudd on its opening night.

The secret’s out that the newest live-music venue in town, The Green Room on the Bluesfest site, is set to go and will host Xavier Rudd on its opening night.

Currently in Europe, Seven caught up with Rudd the day he played the Teatro della Concordia in Umbria, Italy, to talk about The Green Room and his new release Jan Juc Moon.

It’s been quite a while since you lived in Jan Juc – is your latest release telling us you are missing the south coast?

No I’m happy on the Sunshine Coast, but Wadawurrung country will always have a special place in my heart. I’ve written so much music down that way, it’s nice to reflect. 

Your tour schedule looks pretty hectic – how does it feel to be back on the road?

It’s great. The world has been challenged and the shows over here in Europe have been very powerful. The power of love and connection between humans is so evident, and I feel like although we’ve had our challenges touring this year, it’s been an important time to share music with the world.

Are you enjoying a show scaled down from the last big tour?

Ironically the solo show is actually scaled up in terms of equipment – it’s a big show.

What are you bringing to The Green Room?

I’m touring the same show we’re doing here in Europe right now, and super blessed to have Bobby Alu, one of Australia’s greatest, to open The Green Room with me. Hopefully he’ll also join me for a couple of tracks.

How does it feel to be the opening act for The Green Room?

I’m excited. Byron Bay is a super creative area. There are so many great musicians in the region and it’s needed a venue of this size for a long time now. So I’m excited to check it out and to launch it. Hopefully there will be many great nights of music in there to come. 

Tickets are available exclusively from Moshtix.
