Acoustic guitar legend Tony Cox will be making a rare appearance in Johannesburg, performing highlights from his shows Padkos and Songs of Sixty.
The Padkos material is Cox’s mostly instrumental homage to great South African composers and includes songs like Juluka’s Impi, Bright Blue’s Weeping and PJ Powers Jabulani. The show has performed across South Africa to great critical acclaim.
Songs of Sixty sees a return to singing for the guitarist after a 16-year lapse and having achieved the age of sixty this last January, the songs are a reflection of his life and loves from laugh-out-loud humour to darkly tragic. This, combined with the guitar skills that have made this home-grown and fiercely South African musician forever indelibly linked to the instrument in the minds of his fellow countrymen, makes for an unforgettable, world-class show from a truly unique South African artist.
