Nikki Rudge – Sun 26th August
Nikki’s musical influences started in the early 70’s when she discovered her mum’s collection of vinyl including classic Beatles, Frank Sinatra and Slade. Her tastes became eclectic in early life having older brothers who loved funk, rock and punk as the 70’s moved into the 80’s.
Nikki played in folk clubs in the 80’s as a teenager with friends but got distracted young and hung up the 6 string until the late 90’s playing for friends and family but never in public. A move to the Mid North Coast opened the door to performances in public and she has been performing in local pubs, clubs, cafes & markets ever since.
Nikki’s vocals are a unique blend of folk, rock and a touch of grunge which lends well to her wide and varied repertoire. She has a powerful voice that lends well to the acoustic sound she creates with guitar, stomp and harmonies cleverly created with pedals.
She can play a mellow afternoon in the beer garden or a Saturday night in the front bar. Anywhere from Simon & Garfunkel to Nirvana, Van Morrison to the Violent Femmes, Nikki plays to her crowd and has a big enough suite of songs to change pace when the mood lifts.
