Saturday 26th January 2013 LIVE in the Botanical Gardens

Iconic South African Acoustic Guitar Genius STEVE NEWMAN,

along with Greg Georgiades and Ashish Joshi

Steve is known throughout SA and way beyond its borders for his incredible body of award-winning work dedicated to the fine art of acoustic guitar playing. This is not a genre that brings massive wealth and certainly has never fit in to the rank commercialisation of our music industry, yet it is a fact that if you want to look for true, gifted, musical genius one must look beyond the obvious to where the real cutting edge actually is.

Steve Newman is exactly where that cutting edge is. Non-conformist, uninterested in accolades of any sort, propelled purely by his love of music and his pleasure at sharing what he has with others. In any other world the man would be a multi-millionaire purely for his skills.

He is though, much more than just a great guitarist; he is a compassionate and passionate humanist, a loyal friend, husband and a great father.

His musical works, recordings, collaborations and performances span forty years. He created South Africa’s one and only super-group, Tananas back in the early 80’s and this trio of gifted musicians went on to play all over the world. There was nothing quite like them and nothing since. His long association with Tony Cox touched the hearts and ears of several generations and they are still going strong today performing to sold-out shows after 3 decades of performance together.

Going back to early days, Steve formed many groups around himself such as the Squirrel Skinners and the Biscuit Raiders both with a strong bluegrass flavour but with cross-over jazz and classical idioms, all delivered with sparkling arrangements and a great sense of mischief and fun. Before that he had various groups and buddies he played with at school. The afternoon promises to deliver up the most unexpected musical concoctions and by all intents and purposes lift your heart and put a smile on your dial...

Sensational Classical Guitarist

-Derek Gripper-

Live at the Botanical Garden

Sunday 25th November 18h00 -19h00

Tickets R60 - Pensioners R50 - Children under 15 - R 30

Derek Gripper is a well-known acoustic guitarist from Cape Town. He will be performing “One night on earth” A recording of Malian kora music on solo acoustic guitar at the Botanical Gardens as part of a country wide tour. One of the things that allows Gripper to stand out against the crowd of modern guitarists, are the vast array of sounds that he can draw from the instrument…Gripper is able to transcend the instrument with his performances…Gripper’s ability on the instrument is absolutely world-class…his voice is so personal, so unique, that it leaps from the speakers and goes beyond the instrument itself.

Join us for a sunset picnic concert in the Gardens and do not miss this world Class performer.

Bing a picnic basket and something to sit on. If it rains – the concert will take place in the Voortrekker Hall. Tickets available at the door or at our Offices – for more info call Kristen on 044 8741558 or email scherb@pixie.co.za
