SA artists worth mentioning
« on: March 25, 2015, 09:10:30 AM »
I've read through the Dan Patlansky thread, and not wanting to Hijack that thread I decided to start this one.

Glad to hear the mention of Albert Frost , another phenomenal SA player .

Dan Patlansky is certainly recon as one of SA's best. Seeing Albert Frost's name mentioned in the same thread, I thought another name that certainly is worth mentioning is Nathan Smith.

I've seen Nathan and Albert are both the first time as part of the "Riders from the Storm" show. and he is probably the best guitarist I've seen live.

Here Nathan is performing a Gary Moore song in the Gary Moore tribute show. A must see if you're a Gary Moore fan.

Another one of my favorites, also from the "Riders From the Storm" show is Robin Auld. Robin is probably my favorite vocalist in SA, with Nathan taking the lead as guitarist.

These seem genuine and nice, not heard everything, but I like thus far... SQ on the web is a bit dodge... the usual, little dynamics

Picked up a Tananas album at a second hand store, Tananas were Steve Newman, Gito Baloi and Ian Herman, I'd forgotten how great they are !! Really good South African music.

Hi

Great music/blues revival happening in and around Cape Town. Here are some bands/artists really worth keeping an eye out for:

* Crimson House - I have never seen a band riper to make a breakthrough into the big time - one of my favourites
* Mr. Cat & The Jackal - Truly interesting and unique sound
* Basson Loubser - Could easily give Mr. Patlatsky a run for his money in my opinion - and I say this with utmost respect for Dan's skills
* Boulevard Blues - Really solid blues outfit, usually featuring some interesting guest artists
* Carla Louw - I really rate this spunky little vocalist highly and she covers everything from Jazz to pop, to blues
* Ann Jangle - Another local destined for great things internationally, in my opinion

Catching any of these live is highly recommended!

Regards

^^ Have to agree with the above,haven't seen Crimson House or Carla Louw,though,hope to, soon!
Off course,the BBB is legendary already!

My favourite jazz outfit has to be the fantastic Kyle Shepherd Trio,these guys just ooze musicality...

And the other eve at Die Boer in Durbanville,I saw a magic new Trio - 'Hatchetman'. Mostly penning their own stuff,the synergy between these guys is jaw-dropping,in true CSNY vein,they WILL enthrall anyone who loves good music and lyrics! Good luck to them at the GAF starting this week,they perform at the Graham.  :groovy:
