Live From the Rock Day Three

Australian Kim Churchill performs for the crowd Sunday afternoon on day three of the 2010 Red Rock Folk Festival

The performance of the weekend came on day three of the 2010 Red Rock Folk Festival when 19-year-old Australian Kim Churchill took to the stage in the hot afternoon sun.

Kim Churchill - a one-man band

Churchill’s acoustic, one-man show brought the sun-drenched crowd to its feet. His soulful voice and explosive fingerpicking guitar style, combined with bluesy harmonica licks quickly energized the crowd who demanded more. A multi-tasking genius, Churchill also incorporated a tambourine (which he played with his foot) and the pounding of a kick drum.

According to festival organizers, this year’s event brought some of the greatest numbers through gates and in the campground, with camping passes sold out on Saturday night.
