William slipped into old Fremantle town to play a couple of private concerts last week. He was without a didge and so he borrowed an ellswood didgeridoo for the shows. He even gave us a little video of his playing style, super strong and fast!!! We also had a good chat about some of his new music and a CD coming out soon and the possibility of a show/workshop early next year!! 🙂 We will let you all know closer to the date if we can sort this out, fingers crossed for that one!!. So here is the video and a link to Williams website. Enjoy and happy didgin’
