Fall in love with nature and the arts in the Cradle of Humankind this Valentine’s Day. On Sunday 12 February some of the finest local Blues talents will celebrate “slow-blues”, drawing inspiration from John Mayall’s seminal 1969 recording ‘The Turning Point’, performed live at the Fillmore East in New York.
Artists will forego percussion – deriving their rhythm and beat from diverse instruments – cello, flute, keys, saxophone, harmonica, percussive voice and backing harmony.
