After the huge success of the BAFTA and Oscar award-winning film Searching for Sugar Man, Rodriguez returns to the UK for three special shows with his band.
‘When the main set concluded to rapturous applause, Rodriguez stepped forward to the microphone and simply said: “You’re welcome. It’s been a pleasure and a privilege.” Which is exactly the way we felt. I’ve never experienced anything like it at any gig I’ve ever been to.’ (London Culture)
Chloe Charles will open the show following two completely sold out performances at the EFG London Jazz Festival. She challenges all the stereotypes of black female singers, playing stunning classical guitar and writing songs that evoke the sound of fellow-Canadian Joni Mitchell.
I know Australia probably seems like a life time away, but there are many here who love the story and music that is Rodriguez… so if there is ever an opportunity , us Aussies would welcome you. Womad or Fringe festival in Adelaide would be a great occasion for Rodriguez to play and for everyone in attendance. We also have a Fringe here in Melbourne. So do hope to see this wonderful story teller/ musician live one day.
