Jazz Rendez-Vous Home Concerts - Steve Newman at Stefan Antoni's

An intimate evening of music and conversation with the legendary South African guitarist.

Event Organiser: Jazz Rendez-vous @ Home Concerts

Event Info

Steve Newman is a multi award-winning musician whose career spans well over 40 years. He has released no less than 28 albums (solo and collaborations), won multiple awards, and performed around the globe at venues and music festivals alongside other international artists such as Youssou N’dour, Salif Keita, Miriam Makeba, Mori Kante, Papa Wemba, Van Morrison and Elvis Costello. He has made vast contributions to South African music, most notably through the music of Tananas, a musical group which he co-founded with Ian Herman and the late Gito Baloi. It came as a shock to many when Steve recently revealed that he and his family were running out of money and in need of a place to live, but as Steve himself (a vegetarian and yoga practitioner who lives an environmentally-sustainable lifestyle) puts it, most gigs did not even cover his transportation costs from George in the Western Cape where he lives. Adding to that, the current economic downturn has forced many live music venues to close, leading to a decrease in gigs and income for musicians, and mismanagement plus lack of accountability in the collection and allocation of royalties has left many South African musicians destitute with only a pittance left in their pension funds. Most musicians who make a comfortable living from their music either have to leave South Africa or work overseas regularly. Steve (and other musicians like him) chose to remain in South Africa. Therefore, he needs our support to keep sustaining himself through his music and – at his age – to never again arrive at the point where he runs out of money. A very humble and generous soul, Steve can finally earn a decent living from the extraordinary music he has gifted us with throughout the years. Please join Steve and his trio, for this very personal evening of music, conversation, canapés and drinks at the beautiful home of Stefan Antoni, a big fan of Steve’s, and his wife Carla. ********************************************************************************* Music speaks volumes.
