9pm: Tim Parr
One of the most accomplished singer/songwriters in the history of SA music, he is a fantastic live performer and storyteller.
Tim first came to national prominence in the southern-rock blues band Baxtop, where he shared guitar duties with Larry Amos in the Jo’burg club scene of 1976. Rising quickly to the top of the national circuit and winning the SABC battle of the bands, they recorded "Work it Out" for Warner Brothers in 1979, which remains an enduring SA classic. Tim then formed Ella Mental with Heather Mac, which played many of the country’s top festivals, and was one of the iconic 80's bands to have a string of radio hits in South Africa. Ella Mental then relocated to Ireland in 1986.
Tim returned to South Africa to form the Zap Dragons who gigged hard throughout that emotional period in SA's history.
His solo album "Still Standing" is a brilliant mix of country, pop, blues, soul, and rock, with the title track a firm favourite among SA audiences.
In 2021, Tim released his new album "Revolution" which made a real impact on music lovers in SA. Tim successfully toured the Eastern Cape, Western Cape, selected venues in Gauteng, and performed live on an international live stream event hosted at The Daisy Jones Bar OMG music venue in Stellenbosch.
The common thread throughout all these projects has been Tim's expressive vocals and soulful guitar playing, and unlike many guitarists, his rhythm and textural playing is as distinctive as his lead work.
We look forward to hearing more of Tim's music in his ongoing journey at MiTH!
8pm: Roly Struckmeyer
A fixture on the KZN music scene since the late 80’s, Pietermaritzburg-born acoustic guitarist and vocalist, Roly Struckmeyer, started playing the guitar at age seven. He has toured and performed with names such as Wonderboom and Landscape Prayers. Roly worked with Syd Kitchen in the early 2000s, and with Perez from 2001. Roly's first solo album came out in 2007, and he has spent the last decade in cover bands, like No Fly Zone, A-frame, and more recently, Rustic Spring. A few years back, he formed an original duo with Michael Goddard from Perez (also of Steampunk Coffee fame). Roly is excited to be creating music and to be back at MiTH!
7pm: Kristen and Matt Duo
Kristen Wepener is no stranger to the MiTH stage. She has performed at MiTH since 2017, both as a solo act and as part of Cactus Club. Kristen started teaching at St Charles College in 2020, and in 2021 took Matt on as a singing student. Matt is now in grade 11 and is currently working on his grade 6 voice exam content. A talented musician and performer, Matt wants to broaden his horizons beyond school performances. They will take the stage together for the first time at MiTH on the 29th of June.
