Majozi Live @Drostdy Theatre – 8 November 2019

With his sincere and heartfelt songs that artfully portray his uplifting perspective on the world around him, he plays the guitar, keys and drums and draws inspiration from his faith and the world around him.

Elvis Blue @Skilpad Theatre 9 November 2019

Skilpad Theatre is an intimate entertainment and live music venue located on Leccino Farm in the middle of the apple orchards overlooking the majestic mountains of Vyeboom. Guests can escape the hustle and bustle of town for a farm fresh entertainment experience. The first show for the season will be Elvis Blue on the 9th of November. Guests are welcome to bring their own picnic baskets and buy a bottle of wine from the local winery in Villiersdorp.

The Guitarman @ The Drama Factory 9 November 2019

This performance will be happening on Saturday, 9th November starting at 6pm and Sunday, 10th November’s show will start at 4pm.

The show will be hosted by Rogan Hank, and will contain music pieces in the style of Blues, Latin, Pop, and Jazz. In similar fashion to their previous show, “Guitar Man” is a combination of both golden oldies, contemporary music and short skits. The show plays out a fun narrative for the most part, but in its crux comes down to the importance of unity and community.

Derek Gripper @Josephine Mill – 9 November 2019

 The Trio de Musique will once again perform their broadway concert with the wonderful Louise Howlett as their guest artist. For those who missed this concert earlier this year..this one is for you! And for those who have seen it, bring your friends for an afternoon of broadway delight. You can hear music from “Les Miserables”, “West Side story”, “Chess”, “The Sound of Music”, “Wicked” and more. There will be refreshments catered by Sweet Petals – Cape Town to sooth those taste buds.

Within one of Cape Town’s hidden historic gems, a 180-year-old working watermill, Josephine Mill presents an intimate fine dining music experience featuring Derek Gripper. From performing solo shows at Carnegie Hall and London’s Shakespeare’s Globe to other prestigious stages across Europe, Australia, India and USA, Derek Gripper is one of South Africa’s finest musicians. With a background in Western classical music and a passion for West African Kora, Derek has transcribed note-for-note the complex compositions of Malian kora players such as Toumani Diabaté and found extraordinary ways of playing them on a six-string guitar. His beautiful and complex compositions are simply sublime.
