CHRITHMiTH 2017! featuring: St John & Tanya, and the Riddle & Christmas collaboration with Antonio Ravell.
Entry R30, bring your own booze. Food and soft drinks are available for sale.
7pm – St John & Tanya
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.
7.50pm – and the Riddle
We describe our genre as “acoustic cross-pollination” with Jacky van Staden on vocals, guitar, ukulele, harmonica and percussion, Daniel Winterbach on guitar, percussion and vocals. Influences include Fokofpolisiekar, aKING, Mumford & Sons, of Monsters and Men, andtheRiddle are free-spirited and fiercely independent multi-instrumentalists intent on creating something honest and sustainable in an inherently dishonest and unsustainable modern world.
9.00pm – Christmas collaboration with Antonio Ravell
We end off the MiTH year with a bit of fun… Antonio Ravell is a favourite at MiTH and is a well-established fingerstyle electric guitarist and singer-songwriter. He will collaborate with various friends, kids, and MiTH regulars, organisers etc to bring you a Christmas-flavoured celebration of the family and special tradition that MiTH has become. If you’ve played at MiTH before, let us know if you want to join in, and bring your instrument along in your car just in case!
