One of Exmouth’s top breweries is bringing a slew of musical heavyweights to the town, from the bluesy roots of Xavier Rudd to Mama Kin. Rudd, whose 10th studio album was released on March 25, will tour the region as part of his 33-date national tour. He will play in front of an expected 1200 people at Exmouth’s Federation Park on July 24 and two intimate shows at Karratha’s Red Earth Arts Precinct on July 26 and 27. The gig, organised by Froth Craft, will be supported by James Abberley and Dingo Sungod. The show will be the largest concert in Exmouth’s history after the sold-out performance by John Butler last year. Froth director Pete Firth told the Pilbara News it had been a seven-year journey to get Rudd to perform. Froth events manager Rose van Thiel said the community had reacted well to the concert being announced. “We’ve got a lot of Xavier Rudd fans in town, which helps a lot,” she said. “I think its such music-loving town and as the previous year showed, that just brings a lot of positive vibes to the community and some extra business, of course, for people.” Ms van Thiel said the night also had involvement from Protect Ningaloo and Sea Shepherd. “The best thing about these events is we get great artists and more live music, but also it gets the conversation going about other subjects that we need to discuss,” she said. Ms van Thiel said there was a slew of musical acts coming to Exmouth in the coming months including James Aberley on July 8 and Mama Kin on July 10. Other performers coming to town include Noah Young, Eskimo Joe’s Kav Temperley and Idan Shoham.
