Musical journey of Hope

2010-01-08 00:00

THE enigmatic Shannon Hope has been touring South Africa over the past few months, and this month her home province, KwaZulu-Natal, can see her in action at the Vagabond Café on the north coast.

In the first six months of launching her solo career, Hope recorded and released her debut solo album STILL, gained playlisting on national radio­ stations­, embarked on national promotional tours and performed on some of the country’s premier music platforms with Prime Circle, John Ellis­ (Tree63), Josie Field and Plush.

Her musical journey has seen her grace the stages of The Barnyard Theatre, Splashy Fen, Woodstock SA, The White Mountain Folk Festival, Oppikoppi, Music at the Lake, as well as The Metro Theatre in Chicago. Her brief sojourns in the United States in her early music days earned her the opportunity of recording a five-track EP in 2004 with Chicago producer Bjorn Thorsrud (of Smashing Pumpkins and Zwan fame).

Music lovers can catch this piano-based singer-songwriter on January 15 at Claremont Farm (Sheffield Beach Road, Salt Rock) for an intimate evening in a beautiful acoustic setting. The evening starts at 7 pm. Doors are open from 6 pm. Dinner and drinks available. Booking essential: 032 525 4968.
