Michael Canfield and Tigger Reunert team up for a night of blues, folk, funk and fun at Knysna’s Red Bridge Brewery on Thursday the 21st of march at 7pm.
The collaboration between these seasoned musicians is bound to be a shtonking affair with Canfield returning to Knysna and bringing his unique, multi-instrumental, New York-via-Tulbagh rockabilly, high-energy talents as a foil to Reunert’s more laid-back style.
Audiences can expect to hear a set of familiar tunes given a new twist.
Michael Canfield, the one-man Cajun blues machine. No loops, no tracks. All blood, sweat and a whole lotta soul. Passion. Energy. Entertainment. A ‘tour-de-force’ of nature. He sings, strums the tenor guitar and baritone uke, and plays drums – real music made right before your very ears. SAMA-award winning producer Dan Roberts calls Canfield’s solo ‘Juke Jass’ show “A Gumbo stew been mixed into a wholesome brew.” USA-born Canfield has played with some of the biggest names in rock and roll, from Chuck Berry and Bo Diddley through to Paul Simon, Billy Idol and Bob Dylan. He’s done the Grammy’s, the Oscars and busked in the streets of New York City. In South Africa he’s worked with everyone from Johnny Clegg to Boer-musik legends Radio Kalahari Orkes to The Black Cat Bones. He’s been called an icon, a legend, the Duke of the Uke, he Titan of the Tenor, Lord of the Swing, everybody’s favourite rock and roll uncle and the coolest old guy in the business!
Tickets R100.00 on Quicket and R120.00 at the door if available.
