Multi-instrumentalist Shane Philip is known worldwide for his dynamic didgeridoo-infused music.

The West Coast knows well Philip’s ability to fill a room with dancing fans, or quiet a room with mellower songs. For the past five years, he expanded his reach, capturing listeners from around the world.

Philip blends folk, reggae and blues into his own creation.

A one-man force on stage, Philips’s feet wildly work his drum kit while he plays guitar, the aslatua, the djembe and, of course, his didgeridoos.

His fourth album and arguably best work came last year with the release of Life Love Music, recorded at Baker Studios over eight days.

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

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

He performs at Diners Rendezvous Sunday (June 17) at 8 p.m. Doors open at 7 p.m.

Tickets $22/advance; $25/door. Please call 250-740-1133.
