THE Radio Kalahari Orkes will play at St Francis Links in St Francis Bay at 20:00 on December 23.

Their debut album, Stoomradio, went gold and was accompanied by the acclaimed Harry Kalmer play, Die Vloek van Die Strandjutwolf. This was followed by the SAMA nominated secondalbum, Nagloper, and winner of the De Kat, Ramkat Award for best show at Innibos Festival.

The band’s sound features violins, accordions, mandolins, banjos, washboards, guitars, pedal steel, dobro, trumpets, contrabass and gazoos.

Tickets cost R150 per person and are available at quicket.
