Andy's Acoustic Forum...a brand new year begins


If Andy is at the mike, then it must be the last Wednesday of the month
It was an exciting start to the year for this event...
A PURE ACOUSTIC evening...

Only two performers for the evening. 

Opening the show... 

Dave Baudains,,an extremely talented young man 

I have to admit that prior to talking to Andy about the line up  

I had never heard of Dave 

But this evening changed that...
this young man can make his guitar produce the most amazing sounds 

Using all the electronic equipment at his disposal
his guitar work would have made Jimmi Hendrix proud 

He then changed to a Gibson... 

old school...

and that too produced sounds it was not designed to!
His guitar work so impressed the headline act
 that Dave has been invited to play at an International Guitar event in June! 

The headline act was a guitarist that I have seen many times...
and interviewed on more than one occasion 

Guitar supremo... 

All the way from Cape Town... 

Mr. Tony Cox! 

Not only is he a fantastic guitarist... 

he is also a story teller of note 

His dry sense of humour as well as his music kept the audience entertained and entranced. 

Although he last sang(in public) eighteen years ago,
he did enthrall the audience with a couple of songs... 

His voice reminded me of 70's SA folk legend Colin Shamley...
A great start to the year for Andy and his forum
The next evening will be held at Marks Park,Emmarentia
on 27 February...starting at 8.
