rudd goodXavier Rudd will perform at the Maui Arts & Cultural Center’s Castle Theater Thursday, June 23, 2016, beginning at 8 p.m.

Pat Simmons Jr. will provide pre-show entertainment in the Yokouchi Pavilion from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m.

Rudd is an Australian singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist whose songs incorporate socially conscious themes, such as spirituality, humanity, environmentalism and the rights of Aboriginal peoples.

Since the very beginning, Rudd’s ability to connect with people has been his most powerful gift.

The more he has toured the world, the more hearts he has touched, and the more of the world he has put back into his music.


Rudd has enthralled audiences with his ability to wield a variety of instruments at once by introducing a sound that is a mix of guitars, Weissenborn slide guitar, yidakis (didgeridoos), stomp box, percussion and blues harp simultaneously by using a unique stage setup.


But the real magic is his soulful voice.

It is an experience to watch him perform his songs live. His music is something distinctly new, yet tied back through time to the spirit of our ancestors with a strong message of all people coming together around the globe to return to spirit, to respect the ancient ways, and to protect the Earth and the very essence of creation.

Tickets: Assigned seating is $35 and $42; general admission seating with access to the dance floor is $50 (plus applicable fees).
