Our 'Wandering Wonderer' announces his return to settle again here in the Bay Area and this is his Homecoming appearance. Redmond's dynamic delivery of song and spoken word have been honed over years of appearances at Clubs, Cruise Ships & Casinos all over the World.

A troubadour in a brash Hawaiian shirt, Redmond O'Colonies is a man transported from another time, an itinerant musician, thespian, and jester. Like an eccentric gent in the park tossing grain to the pigeons, Redmond embraces his audience with a regal sweep of his arm and soon has them eating out of his hand. Crowds delight in the British ex-pat's lightning-tongued rants and comic monologues, wiping away tears at a rhyming diatribe against television's brain-rotting pablum or a bald man's ode to his last surviving hair. The storytelling folk singer can transform his accent from English to Irish to Scottish as readily as he changes musical styles.
