– Diabolo Mox online magazine, Germany

“Earthman is a wonderfully-made album … soul, pop & world music.” Polyprisma online magazine, Germany

Simon Hudson’s highly original music weaves a captivating blend of world, roots and folk. The singer songwriter multi-instrumentalist has toured Australia, Europe, Brazil & Cuba. His latest EP Islands (2020) is an infectious world roots funk ode to the life of the travelling musician.

Previous releases include crowd-funded album Earthman (2016) featuring a full band with percussion and horns, and folk Latin roots EP Time and Space (2012), a remarkable showcase of skilled song-writing and addictive roots rhythms.”

“Simon is delighted to return to his sometime home to play in this year’s festival. Having played shows around Victoria this winter including Melbourne, Mt Baw Baw & Castlemaine it’s a pleasure to be part of the wonderful world of the Natimuk Frinj. During the pandemic Simon has focused on solo performance including guitar, vocals and loop pedal to bring his new songs to life. Now he brings his particular blend of world roots folk singer songwriter craft to the Club Tropicana Bar for two shows only.”
