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 – NICK PHARAZYN
Nick is one of Hilton’s long-standing blues singer-songwriter-guitar-harp plays, and will be joined by Charles Webster for a friendly jam session on the MiTH stage.
8.00pm – St JOHN AND TANYA
These two are some of our favourite musicians here in the Midlands of KZN.
Tanya leaves her heart on the stage - the utter abandon with which she delivers jazz standards, jazz not-so-standards and soulful ballad covers has left MiTH members tearful on more than one occasion. She lives and breathes every lyric. St John, in his unique, quiet way, provides a perfect foil for Tanya with smooth and evocative keyboard work and a raspy vocal that is as surprising as it is visceral. Their talent is undoubted and self-evident. Their impassioned performances, however, are clearly a function of deep pools of emotion. Tanya Nicolson, St John Haw.
9.00pm – MR JONNY LUCK
It’s been a little over a year since Jonny Luck quit his long-time hate-love relationship with the behinds of bars to take on a bitter-sweet love-hate relationship with the music industry. It’s been going greatish. Having learnt a thing or two about what’s what, realization struck that the road was calling and stories needed to be told. So a tour was put together. A good one. So if you’re feeling a little unlucky this autumn. Why not let a little luck shine with some original DARK FOLK BOOZE BLUES? Born and bred Capetonian, Jonny Luck is a singer/songwriter hidden behind an acoustic guitar and a dirty voice. Mixing a blend of whiskey soaked blues and fresh upbeat folk, this story teller will have you reminiscing of misspent youth, new love and those nights spent drinking at your local watering hole. Jonny Luck is a one man show incorporating earthy guitar rhythms, passionate harmonica lines and a worn in soul voice, all backed by the drive of a stomp box. Catch him on the road, up the road, down the road, and generally wherever the road may lead him.
