Art of acoustic guitar

2010-03-12 00:00

THREE-TIME Sama-winning acoustic guitar maestro Tony Cox is returning to South Africa from the United Kingdom this March and the Maritzburg Musicians’ Club will host his performance at the Tatham Art Gallery in Pietermaritzburg on March 16.

Cox left South Africa in 2008 and has since been very busy on the world’s stages performing to an ever-widening audience. He will be appearing at a variety of venues on his tour through the country, including in his favourite performance space, “house concerts”.

Cox has made inroads into several countries since moving to the United Kingdom in 2008. Canada in particular has seen a steady increase in awareness of his musical abilities, witnessed by the increased attendance figures at many of the venues he has performed in and visited for the second and third times. His ­album The Best of Tony Cox has been released through retail outlets in Canada.

Italy too has proved to be an exciting new audience with his one performance at the Madame International Guitar festival last September in Tricessimo resulting in a return journey just months later to the Emmas festival in Sardegna that then led to other festival offers for 2010.

Cox will be at the Tatham Art Gallery from 7.30 pm. Tickets are R85 (which includes a complimentary drink). Tickets are available at Marshall ­Music, Cascades Centre and at the door. Car guards will be on duty in the parking area. ­Inquiries: 082 404 7970 or 084 555 6830.
