Kevin Abraham and 'Folkify' return to the Rhodes Theatre Box in Makhanda

After a sold out 2017 season, with the “Folkify” project in The Eastern Cape, The Garden Route, and Cape Town, [and a full house at the Saints in Grahamstown], singer- guitarist Kevin Abraham returns with an updated live show, “10 Strings and a Box”.

Its a collaboration of guitar, violin and percussion, along with fine vocals and engaging story-telling... Kevin delivers a stimulating mix of original songs, plus acoustic interpretations of some great older stuff.

Kevin Abraham is a respected singer/songwriter with a long history of performance in South Africa and abroad. He’s the “Old Man” of the group. He hasn’t worn shoes for 30 years.

Kristo Zondagh is a widely appreciated drummer and percussionist. He has appeared in countless performances across South Africa. His band, VuDu, recently won the Afrika Young Legends award. He works with a multitude of artists covering a wide spectrum of musical genres.

David Kyd is a young prodigy, classically trained, who is fast being recognized as the serious violinist that he is. He has shared the stage with some of S.A.’s great players, and is a member of the prestigious South African National String Orchestra. He currently divides his time between teaching and live performance.

Please be aware that this is not a pub gig, nor is it a “tribute show”. It’s a sit down and listen experience designed with a thinking audience in mind.

While the band presents a mix of originals and well-known songs, each one is redesigned to take on a new, acoustic life of its own. The original songs…well, you’ll be able to decide for yourself when you hear them!

All recent runs have all been sold out, and the trio has been hailed for their technical ability, and interesting, and engaging performances.
