BOOKING ESSENTIAL - R75 - LIMITED TICKETS - COVID-19 PROTOCOLS OBSERVED BOOKINGS: 082 331 7271 (Please book early to avoid disappointment.) VENUE: The Knoll Historic Guest Farm https://goo.gl/maps/Va3tjKhEs1unRumZ8 9pm: Rusty Red The fiery-haired, guitar-slinging singer/songwriter - Rusty Red from Durban - joins us on the MiTH stage. The son of a preacher man, a preacher woman and the brother of yet another preacher man, Rusty Red skipped the religious gene and instead found himself searching for meaning through the vibrations of six rusty strings. His musical influences range from John Mayer's sweet and subtle marriage of blues guitar and introspective lyricism, Slow Hand Eric Clapton and BB King's musical restraint, Stevie Ray Vaughan's lack of restraint, all the way to the occasional wit one might only find in a Queen song. Well known in the KwaZulu-Natal Midlands for his appearances with Pietermaritzburg legends, The Hairy Legged Lentil Eaters, who were among his musical mentors, as well as Durban-based powerhouse band The Black Lapels, Rusty has slowly but surely been making a name for himself as a solo artist - the kind THAT IS very difficult to ignore. 8pm: The Name On The Drum “The Name On The Drum” is an alternative rock, folk and indie band that focuses on playing original music but they also insert a variety of covers into their live shows. Ranging their sound from full electric to simple acoustics, "The Name On The Drum" uses all the tools at their disposal to create a unique blend of honest, thought provoking song-writing with absorbing musical performances. With influences that include, Rise Against, Bob Dylan, Frightened Rabbit, The National, Angus & Julia Stone and Gregory Alan Isakov, their song writing also creates awareness of current world issues. When the band was formed in 2011 the plan was to have a different 'name on the drum' at each performance, now they simply go by "The Name On The Drum"; or "TNOTD". Current performing members are brothers Ben and Nat Bruzas. Who, in July 2019 released their independently recorded and produced second EP "Souvenirs". Based in Hillcrest, they have played extensively around KZN, as well as touring Gauteng and the Eastern Cape. "TNOTD" has also performed at various Music Festivals, Splashy Fen (2017), Lube & Tube (2019), Pecanwood Oktoberfest (2016), Ales For Tails(2016,2017,2018), Frothing Beats (2018) Imbumba Fiesta (2018), Roseway Waldorf’s Musical Moonlight Market and Organic Market, Monteseel Music Fest (2015,2016,2017) and Outland Festival (2016). 7pm: Ilan & Chesco Chesco is predominantly a theatre writer and performer. however, like many, he could not resist the allure of guitars and has been tinkering away ever since he heard ‘Streets of London’ plucked by his mum. A skilled performer, Chesco won a coveted silver Ovation award at the National Arts Festival in 2018 and has performed live musical scoring for stage productions. Ilan Lax has been a singer, songwriter and part of the Maritzburg music community for more years than he can remember or imagine. “Music was around me in my mother’s womb and remains a foundational element that contributes to who I am and stirs my life-force.” Ilan writes and sings songs that try to reflect on his life experience, from love and family, to work, the world around and the things that move him – and which reflect the title of one instalment Douglas Adams’ Guide series: “Life, the Universe and Everything”. Ilan and Chesco have reaped the serendipity of the Covid 19 lockdown to play together and co-write a few tunes. Enjoy the collaboration.
