Friday November 13th: Set your spirit free to the intoxicating rhythms of one‐man phenomenon,
Shane Philip at Mansons Hall. Didgeridoo, Kona lap-slide guitar, Djembe drums…Shane is described as a master of unique instrumentation who brings strange sounds together to form a seamless music mosaic. “Swelling in primordial pulses and wholloping whoops, the tacit tones of Shane Philip’s didgeridoo hold the power to still listeners into silence or encourage audiences to rise up in a tribal swell of intoxicating spirit — with sometimes but a heartbeat in between. Meanwhile his hands will be skillfully juggling between shaking up rhythms with his aslatua, driving the dancefloor with his djembe and sliding out grooves on his Weissenborn-style guitar while his foot taps in earthshaking electronic kicks wherever they might fit.”His sound has been likened to Ben Harper, Jack Johnson, and the White Stripes. Folk, reggae and blues are influences, but Shane blurs the boundaries of musical genres. His sound and his lyrics are derived from a unique fusion of his many influences in life and drive a passion to communicate heart, spirit and soul through his music.
