Instrumentalist and singer-songwriter Shane Philip is coming to do a show at the Miner’s Hall on Saturday

Saturday, multi-instrumentalist Shane Philip, will be playing the Miner’s Hall. The concert is a fundraiser for the Rossland skate park.

Philip is well-known for his dynamic didgeridoo-infused music and he’s been in a constant state of touring for the past few years now.

His rhythmic and intoxicating sounds are powerful enough to fill a room with dancing fans and soulful enough to quiet a packed house.

Those songs captured audiences for years in Canada, particularly along the west coast, but for the past five years, he’s captured listeners around the globe.

Philip released the album Earthshake in 2006, introducing his unique sound and creating a small following almost instantly.

In 2008, he released In the Moment, which showed further that he could seamlessly blend folk, reggae and blues genres into his own creation.

The tracks include the occasional surf beats that made him stand out.

He followed the project with Live at Baker Studios in 2009.

Heavier on the blues side, this album had more of the grit that comes out during Philip’s live shows, which was essential for anyone who had never been to a performance.

Philip is a one-man force on stage.

His feet wildly work his drum kit while he plays guitar, the aslatua, the djembe and, of course, his didgeridoos.

Last year he released Life Love Music.

The album is rich with vocals and features much more of that mesmerizing sound that Shane Philip is so well known for.

Philip hooked up once again with producer Joby Baker (Cowboy Junkies, Alex Cuba) and the two collaborated for what is another memorable product.

Baker often plays bass and drums on the tracks and the two took a total of eight days to record.

Might sound quick, but Philip is known for completing his projects quickly.

The Baker Studios album took two days, as an example.

The result, though, of taking the extra time is a wonderfully polished recording that maintains the grit and integrity of Philip’s compositions.

Doors open at 9 p.m. and the show starts at 11 p.m. at the Miner’s Hall, Saturday, Feb. 11. Tickets $20.
