2017-07-12 06:01

THE group who brought us One Hit Wonderful got together for a winter show to warm the cockles­ of your heart and give you an evening of nostalgia you will remember for a long time – until Christmas.

The event will take place at Hexagon Dive on July 12-15 at 7pm for 7.30pm.

Tickets are R85pp on Wednesday and Thursday, and R100 on Friday and Saturday.

There will also be a picnic evenings where you bring your food, but no drinks, as there is a cash bar.

Sandra Styles, Ryan Calder, Tammy Calder, Daniel Rossouw and Katherine McClelland bring you the ultimate in folk music from the 60s and 70s.

The group, known for their wacky humour and beautiful vocals, have taken a look at the folk revival of the 60s and 70s and chosen a bunch of some of the era’s greatest songs and performers.

From traditional folk to folk pop, all the greats are there - Bob Dylan, Joan Baez, Donovan, Pete Seeger, Joni Mitchell, Simon and Garfunkel, Cat Stevens, as well as the lesser remembered Tom Paxton, Jerry Jeff Walker and Melanie, among many others.

Even the Beatles make an appearance with their folk-influenced Norwegian Wood.

Songs we all remember are there, from Blowin’ in the Wind, Both Sides Now, Homeward Bound, Sounds of Silence, Mr Bojangles, to golden oldies such as Puff the Magic Dragon, Rambling Boy and Those were the Days.

In true folk tradition of have guitar, will travel’, the performers are accompanied by guitar only, with Ryan and Daniel Rossouw providing the expert accompaniment.

So come and spend some time be warmed by some of the best music of the 20th Century.
