Cussons 90/As Jy Luister: Woordmusiek met die gedigte van Sheila Cussons

Josh Prinsloo (bass), Frieda van den Heever (vocals and piano), and Lou-Ann Stone (vocals and saxophone)

I am playing bass for a music show called Cussons 90 at this years Klein Karoo Nasionale Kunstefees (KKNK) in Oudsthoorn from 2 – 5 April. The poetry of legendary South African poet Sheila Cussons has been written for musical performance by Lou-Ann Stone (vocals and saxophone) and Frieda van den Heever (vocals and piano). The show also features jazz pianist Ramon Alexander and drummer Annemie Nel. After performing to a packed audience at last year’s Woordfees in Stellenbosch, we recorded a radio show for Radio Sonder Grense (RSG) under the direction of Margo Luyt. Interest in the show has also allowed us an insert on Kyknet’s popular arts show Kwêla, where I made my TV debut last week.

  1. Hi Frieda

    Ek is bietjie agter met my RSG potgooi materiaal, en het sopas na Vers en Klank van 02/08/12 geluister hier in koue Wallis. Die Cussons 90 musiek was asemrowend. Enige kans van ‘n CD wat dalk vrygestel sal word?

    Kind regards
