The Line up continues RICHARD PERSO - The one man excitement machine, Richard Perso has developed his own delivery blending multiple genres fused into a folky rocking roots and blues with didgeridoos. Perso doesn’t seem to have enough arms, legs or lungs to pull off such a physically demanding performance but that doesn’t stop him from playing 3 didgeridoos, driving a weapons cache of 3 overdriven acoustic guitars and somehow managing to replace the roll of a drummer with little more than his 2 feet. Australian cultural heritage mixed with blues, rock and folk influences. www.youtube.com/watch?v=ynpekgajhZY
