Thursday 1 December: Doc MacLean

Tickets: R120.00

Son of a civil rights lawyer and a fiddle player, Doc MacLean was exposed to country blues and folklore at an early age. By his early teens he was performing in coffeehouses and festivals, and was appearing on radio and television variety shows. Answering the call of the road, Doc traded a guitar for a 1948 Dodge and set out to explore America. In a relentless cross country ramble, Doc MacLean sought out every living old time blues player he could find. Significantly, he met and became friends with artists such as Son House, Tampa Red, Sippi Wallace, Yank Rachel, Robert Pete Williams, Rev Robert Wilkins and Bukka White.

First known for his work as an accompanist on harmonica and washboard, Doc proceeded to make his own mark as a guitarist, singer, arranger and band leader. Performing on bottleneck and standard guitar, Doc MacLean now appears solo and with upright bass and percussion. While his lyrics are mainly contemporary, his approach as a guitarist-songster reflects not only his exposure to southern string bands and jug bands, but also to Delta players and storytellers such as Charlie Patton, Son House, and Sam Chatmon. He is currently on his South African tour and will be making a stop at café Roux, Noordhoek for a special show.

Friday 2 December: Bed on Bricks

Tickets: R120.00

Singer Mike Hardy’s lyrics are smart, positive, informed and questioning. Whether they are rapped or sung, they remain inspired by life in urban Cape Town. Schalk van der Merwe’s bassTim Rankin’s drums and Dave van der Linden’s guitar are played with passion and energy. Bed on Bricks are into the sweetness of life at the Southern tip of Africa and playing their instruments for the love of it. And man, do they love it! Listen here: https://soundcloud.com/bed-on-bricks

Saturday 3 December: Grassy Spark.

Tickets: R100.00

Wednesday 7 December:  Lonesome Dave

Tickets: R150.00

LONESOME DAVE FERGUSON is a one-man lo-fi-hi-impact explosion of Trans-Blues & Country-Dub. This solo show uses only harmonica, human beat-box and vocals, recording live loops and then layering and building those loops to construct a song… Although it’s a solo act it’s not your typical singer-song-whiner type show, expect more in your face dance-style grooves served up in a Deep-South style.

Thursday 8 December: Robin Auld

Tickets: R120.00

Born to Ayrshire Scots parents in Lusaka, Zambia, Robin Auld’s childhood was spent alternating between Southern Africa and Scotland, a journey reflected in the African and Celtic influences in his music. He learned to play the guitar by listening to Hendrix, Ry Cooder and Neil Young, also absorbing the influences from the indigenous guitarists of South Africa such as Philip Tabane, Tony Cox, Madala Kunene and Steve Newman. The beach and surfing were the main elements of his early years in Cape Town, which he moved to when he was 10 with his mother and brother. He started out playing as a sideman guitarist in various seminal Cape Town line-ups such as the Lancaster Band and Steve Walsh Roots Rhythm band before going on to write and sing his own songs. He had several national hits with the band Z-Astaire, produced by Kevin Shirley who went on to work with Joe Bonnamassa, Led Zeppelin and John Hiatt amongst others. He then embarked on the journey to take his music abroad, and it was in the UK that his music evolved from the pop sound of his earlier recordings to the contemporary mix of roots influences that make up his sound today.

Friday 9 December: Loki Rothman

Tickets: R130.00

Loki Rothman has been seen many times with acts like Jack Parow and Albert Frost on the Café Roux stage. For the first time he is hitting the stage with his own solo show at Café Roux.

He also covers a wide range of genres in this show, anything from acoustic, pop, blues, jazz, classical and flamenco and promises to have something for everyone. This is a show not to be missed.
