Out from the Kitchen

2010-02-19 00:00

SINCE the seventies, guitarist, singer and songwriter Syd Kitchen has remained an innovative, active, noncompromising part of the South African musical landscape.

A highly acclaimed teacher, thinker and published poet, he performs extensively at festivals and clubs throughout South Africa, both solo and with various combinations.

He has released several critically acclaimed albums, all born of an eclectic­, curious spirit unfazed by market-place considerations or the wishes of others.

This eclecticism and freedom of spirit has seen his musical journey traverse the Kitchen Brothers through Equinox, Harry Was A Snake, The Utensils, The Flying Sombreros to his collaborations in Amakool, the Aquarian Quartet (with Steve Newman, Greg Georgiades­ and Tony Cox) and Bafo Bafo (with Madala Kunene).

Kitchen lives in Durban with his wife where he teaches music while reading for his MA/PhD in Musi- cology­ with the University of KwaZulu-Natal.

He will be performing on Sunday at Cliffy’s Country Pub in Grimthorpe Avenue, Lincoln Meade. Gates are open from 11 am. Entrance is R30. Children are welcome. The bar will be open and braai packs and salads will be available to purchase.
