Australian stories, music, culture, puppetry, comedy, character building with lots of audience participation and lots of fun. Rob Thomas will be the virtual performer.

Rob is a true didgeridoo pioneer in the U.S. He has been making and playing didgeridoos for almost 30 years; has performed throughout the country; has recorded several CDs; and has produced music for numerous films, including the IMAX movie Sacred Planet. He collaborates on many of these projects with his wife and fellow DDU performer, Tanya Gerard.

Rob tours nationwide, and performs at hundreds of venues annually, including schools, libraries, colleges and corporate events.

Rob was born in California, has traveled extensively abroad, and lived in Australia for more than a year. Rob and Tanya lived in Santa Fe, N.M., for 22 years before moving to North Carolina in 2013 to work full-time with Didgeridoo Down Under. Rob is especially excited to help kids become better global citizens through motivational messages about character building, environmentalism and literacy.

Rob and Tanya live with their five dogs deep in the enchanted forests and mountains of western NC.
