Slow food and music

2008-06-03 00:00

There is some great music to look forward to in the midlands. On June 7 and 14, Caversham Valley Concerts will present music events featuring leading acoustic artists Tony Cox, Madala “Bafo” Kunene, Neill Solomon and Friends, and Richard Onraet at the Midlands Forest Lodge on the Meander route.

The first concert, starting at 2 pm on June 7, will feature guitarist and musical raconteur Tony Cox, along with his 18-year-old protégé from Cape Town, Richard Onraet. Cox needs little introduction. His latest album, Blue Anthem, won the award for Best Instrumental album at this year’s Sama awards. As he has been booked for a string of summer festivals in Canada and the U.S. the midlands audience is lucky to have a chance to see and hear him before he leaves. The concert will be opened by Onraet, who cites Cox as as one of the biggest influences in his music, along with Doyle Dykes. Although he is still at school, last year he won both the Helderberg and Stellenbosch Eisteddfods. publishes all comments posted on articles provided that they adhere to our Comments Policy.
