Didgeridooman to Visit Tamar Valley

Didgeridoo sounds fill the valley

The Tamar Valley will be alive with the sounds of didgeridoos next Wednesday, August 1 when Chris Holland fills the surrounding trails and woodlands with the eerie sounds of the Australian instrument.

Holland, who is better known as the Didgeridoo Man, will mix music, story telling, earth painting, bushcraft, games and activities at the Bedford Sawmills as part of the Tamar Valley Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty summer series of activities for families.

Children are sure to be enthralled by Holland who will don full Aboriginal face paint as plays his music and tells stories.

A spokesman from the Tamar Valley Mining Heritage Project, the £5 million Heritage Lottery funded project which celebrates the rich mining landscape of the valley and its 25km of designated trails, said: “We’re really looking forward to watching Chris perform. We are sure everyone will be entranced by his remarkable skills as a musician and it will also be a great opportunity for children to have a go to as well as enjoy his brilliant story telling and join in in the other activities.”
