VENUE: The Knoll Historic Guest Farm
9pm: Seb Goldswain
Seb Goldswain is widely regarded as one of the finest contemporary guitarists in South Africa. A native of Durban, he graduated from the University of KwaZulu Natal in 2015 with a degree in Jazz and Popular music, and now regularly tours performing his own brand of fiery solo acoustic guitar shows. His mesmerizing and intricate playing, which sounds more like a full band playing than a solitary acoustic guitar, has gained him fans across the globe. Seb’s inspirational live shows are a must-see and have led him to open for international pop-star George Ezra and to be recognised as a brand ambassador for bespoke instrument companies Guitar Gallery and AER Amplifiers.
8pm: Pretty & The Music
“I believe the world is my playground, armed with words, creativity, hunger for new adventures and curiosity for new experiences, I’m headed out to play.”
Born in kwaMashu and raised in iMbali, Pretty Olifant was brought up by a force of strong women to be a witty, unwavering, and free spirited soul. A social entrepreneur, brand manager and poet, Pretty is also the founder of uMgungundlovu’s arts initiative Kwasuka Sukela (Once Upon a Time). Pretty takes to the MiTH stage accompanied by Knox Mkhize on guitar and Siyabonga Ngema on Bass. Their eclectic sound zig-zags across a number of genres including African Rhythm, Soul, Jazz, Reggae, and Rhythm and Blues underpinned with poetry.
7pm: Father and Son
Father & Son, named after the famous Cat Stevens song, is the Hilton (KZN)-based duo of Charles (father – vocals and guitar) and Michael (son – rhythm) Webster. A founder of Music in The Hills (MiTH – www.mith.co.za), Charles is a well-known performer on the KZN Midlands circuit with strong roots in folk-rock. Michael is in matric this year and is an accomplished young drummer-percussionist. The Webster men will perform a selection of well-known covers, sprinkled with a couple of originals, and look forward to making a special memory (before Michael leaves for university) warming the stage for our later performers.
