It’s November 22nd – National Didgeridoo Day. The first time I celebrated the day was a couple of years ago, in Montpelier with Adamant didgeridoo artist Pitz Quattrone and his Earthman Band. Last year the occasion was honored by a visit from Pitz on my weekly radio show, World of Music. And this year too! Except today he came with a guitar playing partner: Pitz and Shrimp played an energetic half-hour set of originals including “Movin’ “, “Three Americas”, and “Electric Tan”. We talked about the didgeridoo, their duo act, and a couple of gigs and other special projects they have coming up. Most of all we enjoyed some great, groovy music together. I don’t know what I’ll be doing next year for National Didge day, but I hope it’s as fun as the last few have been.
You can catch Pitz and Shrimp at the Vermont International Festival in two sets – 11am and 2pm, on Saturday Dec. 4th at the Champlain Valley Expo in Essex.
