DIRECTIONS TO MiTH:
Take the N3 to Hilton, take the Hilton turnoff and go South into the Village (away from Hilton College). Travel 5,2km along Hilton Avenue (past two sets of traffic lights and Old Main Brewery) and keep going straight as Hilton Avenue turns into Dennis Shepstone Drive. At the 5,2km mark, Knoll Drive will be on your right – the entrance to MiTH is the *second* entrance on your left into The Knoll Historic Guest Farm. (Dennis Shepstone Drive is currently under heavy construction – so please be very cautious.)
7pm - OPEN MIC
7.30pm – BIANCA WOOD
A musician based in Cape Town, South Africa, in 2015 Bianca Wood released her debut album, TIME. Although she has been making music, writing songs and singing most of her life, TIME was her first public offering as a professional musician. In 2016, Bianca underwent some incredible “musical surgery” and worked closely with some of South Africa’s top producers, engineers, agents and musicians. The Bianca Wood team completed a “Studio Exploration Tour” where Bianca and her band recorded and filmed songs in studios across South Africa. Bianca Wood and her band have opened for the Parlotones, and she has sung with Kahn Morbee a number of times. She also recently released her single, 9 crimes, featuring Richard Stirton. The team is about to release song and video number 1 of the new batch – titled BLUE. This will be followed by two more: THE COMEDOWN and THESE ARE THE DAYS. The big dream: the team would like to do a summer tour of Europe in 2017.
