The Sunshine Rock & Blues Festival will be held on the weekend of Friday 22nd to Sunday 24th June 2018. An exciting three day celebration of Australian music, featuring national recording and touring artists, the kind of event which has never before been held in a Sunshine Coast venue.
Richard Clapton plays a TICKETED SHOW on Friday night of the Sunshine Rock & Blues Festival here at the Caloundra RSL. Set to perform at 8pm, you’ll find Clapton rockin’ in the Function Room. This show is part of the Friday One Day Pass, Two Day Pass and Three Day Pass. Pick your day, pick your festival pass.
Richard Clapton is one of Australia’s foremost singer/songwriters.
Clapton paved the way for three generations of songwriters to write about the experience of being Australian.
When he began his recording career in 1974, Australia was still in vice-like grip of the cultural cringe. He plunged into the deep water and in his wake followed the Skyhooks and Paul Kelly, Cold Chisel, INXS, Midnight Oil and hundreds of others.
Clapton’s songs are still omnipresent on the radio. His records chart the political landscape of the nation and the turbulent lives of two generations.
