    7:30 pm – David Gengan

    David makes his MiTH debut at 63 years old, but has been playing the guitar since he was 16, having grown up with the music of the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s. He is a Paul Simon nut, but plays covers of a range of artists including the Beatles, Bee Gees, Crosby Stills and Nash, Creedence, Bob Dylan, James Taylor, Cat Stevens, John Denver, and others. While he is not a performer, He has played at various community and family functions, and says he relishes the opportunity to play at MITH. His claim to fame is singing Tracy Chapman’s “Freedom Now” for late president Nelson Mandela at function in the city in 1993.

    8pm – Pyramid Scheme

    A brand new collaboration, Pyramid Scheme sees the perennially popular Erin Fourie, Charles Webster and his son Michael Webster team up to perform a rather eclectic variety of folk, rock and even pop covers re-imagined for the MiTH audience. With Erin (acoustic guitar) and Charles (acoustic guitar, bass guitar) on vocals and harmonies, and Michael (16) on percussion, MiTHites can expect surprising versions of songs by Nine Inch Nails, Paul Simon, Depeche Mode, Smashing Pumpkins, and even Britney Spears.

    9pm – Post Office Blues Band

    The Post Office Blues Band hails from the MiTHty hills of the Dargle where they are the resident band for the widely popular Sunday afternoon Blues sessions at Il Postino Pizzeria. Led by quintessential bluesman, Skippy Kubheka, this Blues Band is sure to have crowds on the edge of their seats with the best of Chicago Blues music. Skippy is joined by @Frik Els, Chris Melling and Christo JJ Loots to drive the hard thumping electric tunes that are sure to entertain.
