Singer and songwriter Dan Sultan had to cancel his trip to Tønder Festival in 2018. Now we are happy to present one of Australia’s major talents. In his homeland, Dan Sultan is famous for his raw soul sound, which has won him several prizes, among them ARIA Awards (the Australian Grammy), Deadly Awards and National Indigenous Awards, which are given to Aboriginal Australians. Dan Sultan’s mother is Aborigine, part of “the stolen generation”, children taken from their families by the Australian authorities. Dan Sultan tells the story in his song Roslyn, named for his mother. Dan Sultan’s music is many-facetted. He can deliver high-powered rock and soul with a full band, which has brought work opening for Bruce Springsteen on his Australian tours. At the other end of the scale, Dan Sultan gives his intense songs solo treatment, accompanied by his masterful guitar technique. It is this solo side we will hear at Tønder Festival. His only Danish festival concert in 2019.
