DAVID RUDDER & FRIENDS
November 17, 2017 @ 8:00 pm - November 18, 2017 @ 1:00 am
David Rudder’s unprecedented rise to fame in 1986 has made him the subject of music critics around the world. From New York to London to Tokyo, where the Japanese have released a CD of Rudder’s greatest hits complete with lyrics translated into Japanese, Rudder has been described as modern calypso’s most innovative songwriter. It’s hard to remember when calypso has seen more controversy, excitement, and popularity than the day David Rudder stepped beyond his role as lead singer for the brass band Charlie’s Roots and entered the domain of the calypso tent as an individual artiste. “Almost overnight he became a national hero on the order of Marley in Jamaica, Fela in Nigeria and Springsteen in New Jersey,” – Rolling Stone Magazine
