Happy Spring everyone! We’ve had the most beautiful days here in Stellenbosch, which has revived me and made me quite excited about the last quarter of the year!
We had great fun at the end of the August when we performed Her Blues at Centurion Theatre. It was wonderful to share my affinity for the ladies in Blues with our appreciative audience. I had great fun with all the amazing musicians who form part of the Her Blues team.
This month I am preparing for the Korreltjie Kantel tour to Netherlands and Belgium – which is super exciting. All our gigs have been set in stone, we have managed to raise enough money to get us all there. We are still in need of some funding to help us cover our technical costs and a few nights of accommodation. If you would like to contribute to this tour, feel free to contact me to discuss options. We have a beautiful selection of limited edition Korreltjie Kantel prints for sale – which can be viewed and ordered by contacting me on firstname.lastname@example.org. Your print will be signed by the artist personally and will be one of only 20 prints. You can also support us by attending our fourth fundraising gig which will take place at Rootspring Music in Cape Town on the 20th of September. Feel free to check out my Show Page to read more about the gig and where you can buy tickets.
The month of September also includes some solo performances on my part. I will be performing at Centre Stage in Somerset-West, Mel’s Place in Keurboomsrivier, Stables in Stilbaai and Monroe Theatre in Mossel Bay. These solo shows include songs from all my albums – Afrikaans and English – as well as some brand new songs composed and written over the last couple of months. I will be bringing along my albums, so if you would like to purchase an album or two, do bring some extra cash along.
The month of October will be jam-packed with our European tour! I will be sharing some news on this tour early October, but in the meantime feel free to check out the tour schedule on my Show Page. If you have friends, family or colleagues in Belgium or Netherlands, please forward the show links to them and motivate them to come and experience a truly unique show which is bound to tickle their interest in Afrikaans music, literature and introduce them to an array of South African visual artists, three musicians and 2 great actors.
Feel free to contact me if you have any questions
