Looking for an afternoon that winds down the weekend yet inspires you for the week? Then Sunday 10 March should see you heading off to Kirstenbosch when Jeremy takes the stage as part of the Old Mutual Summer Sunset concert series.
Opening act Holiday Murray set the scene for this performer who is showing a new way of making music, one that audiences of all ages love! Often referred to as a one man folk band Jeremy is equipped with multiple instruments, loop station, pedals, a capacity to sing, and beatbox and what emerges are the most beautiful sounds. Jeremy creates textured tracks that transform convention and allies the fresh with the familiar. His performances centre around crowd participation and collaborations with other skilled musicians so plan to be at this concert which will delight new school world folk music fans as Jeremy lets rip. As the music takes shape so the audience moves with it and rhythm and beat is the order of the concert.
Jeremy has been hugely successful of late. He played on the main stage at Oppikopp, one of the biggest festivals this side of the equator with a crowd of 22 000 people. In addition to this he has performed at the premier SA festivals in the last six months. Now he comes to most magnificent stage of all, Kirstenbosch.
Holiday Murray will open the afternoon. Boyish good looks, quirky lyrics with a broad brushstroke of nostalgia and this young Capetonian band of four musicians is making its name amongst the best. Wide ranging influences and diverse musical backgrounds create a refreshing and unique sound.
Pack a picnic, gather your friends and enjoy Sunday afternoon at the most beautiful garden in Africa as the Kirstenbosch Centenary rocks on.
