A MUSICIAN from the land down under will be performing at a Boston music venue tomorrow (Thursday).

Derrin Nauendorf has played at a number of blues festivals, including some with local band Blues Boy Kings.

He is a rock/blues cross-over artist and will perform music by a host of artists including Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan and Jimi Hendrix.

Jason North, from Blues Boy Kings, said: “He is an amazing talent on acoustic guitar and vocals - his performances are mesmerising and spell binding!”

On his website he says his influences include Bob Dylan, Tom Waits, Martin Stevenson and Richard Thompson, John Martyn and traditional British folk.

Derrin started his career around seven years ago after leaving Australia in an attempt to make a splash in the UK and Europe.

He boasts he started off at Heathrow with a telephone number, £1200 and a ‘mountain of energy and enthusiasm’.

He has played all over in the last few years including gigs in France, Germany, Spain and Holland.

He boasts he has performed almost every night and includes supporting Deep Purple as one of his achievements.

Derrin has recorded six albums, selling almost 17,000 copies, including his latest record Skin of the Earth.

Derrin has opened for Van Morrison and countless other artists.

He has been interviewed by BBC Radio 2 hosts Bob Harris and Paul Jones and had a live session at the Maida Vale studios.

The lyrics to Derrin's song Shipwrecked from The Rattling wheel album were published by Cambridge University Press in a text book for English Literature and the album also received a four star review in the Sunday Express.

Derrin will be coming to the Boston Blues Club at the Carpenters Arms from 9.30pm.
