Known for jamming on up to 20 instruments at a time, including a wide-ranging setup of didgeridoos, a lap steel slide guitar, a stompbox at his feet, drums, dobros, banjos, and harmonicas, Australian multi-instrumentalist Xavier Rudd has made a name for himself on the crunchy festival circuit and in the hearts of spiritual, environmental jammers alike since the start of the millennium.
