Joe Caudwell

Digeridoo Beginners & Advanced, Didg Dreaming - Performance Saturday

The Didgeridoo is a wind instrument developed by Indigenous Australians of northern Australia, and has been in use for the last 1,500 years and is still in widespread use today both in Australia and around the world. It is sometimes described as a natural wooden trumpet or "drone pipe".

Joe Caudwell has been playing, making and teaching didgeridoo for the last 21 years. He is a multi-instrumentalist - playing many instruments including didgeridoo, djembe, cajon, handpan, tongue drum, Native American flute, percussion and lap steel guitar.

His main passion is the didgeridoo, and he has a strong interest in more traditionally-influenced styles of playing, particularly Yolngu hard tongue style from Arnhem Land.

Over the last few years Joe has provided performances, workshops, meditations and sound healings at many events, including: Isle of Wight Festival, Rhythmtree Festival, Le Reve de l'Aborigiene (France), Didg to Didg (France), Bestival and Singing Sticks.

Joe will be teaching each day and will split workshops between those at beginner level and those with more intermediate/advanced skill level.

We look forward to a performance on our main stage on Saturday evening alongside Jon Sterckx and Bear Love. On Friday morning, Joe will lead a Didgeridoo meditation class he calls ‘Didg Dreaming’.
