THE Armchair Sessions will be presenting Tony Cox live in concert, featuring Thuli Cox at Art On Target, 2 Target Kloof on Friday, August 30.

There have been a tiny handful of seminal guitar players to come along in the last 50 years that have forged a unique, musical identity for themselves and consequently have been a powerful influence on others.

Zimbabwean-born guitarist Tony Cox is one such guitarist.

Absorbing the music of his surroundings and his upbringing and using the discipline of classical technique, Cox forged a new way to approach the acoustic guitar through the prism of the land of his birth and became so successful at it that he won three SAMA awards for his recorded works.

His current projects include teaching underprivileged children how to play the guitar and understand the rudiments of music theory.

At just 14-years-old, Thuli Cox already displays a command of her musical medium that gives her listeners goose bumps. She has appeared on stage with and without her father since the age of 11 and although currently doing her Grade 5 piano and proficient on bass guitar, she prefers to appear on stage with an acoustic guitar as a backing to her rich, soulful voice. Thuli will present a short set on her own and her dad will join her for part of her performance.

Do not miss this opportunity to see and hear a true South African icon and his young daughter in concert together. The event promises to be a show to remember and a preview to the full show that the duo intend bringing to the National Arts Festival in 2020.

Tickets are available at R120 per person and bookings can made via WhatsApp from Angela on 084 623 5491.

The venue is unlicensed, so attendees are advised to bring their own beverages (glasses and ice will be provided).

The show starts at 19:30.
