LONESOME DAVE FERGUSON
Tickets : R150.
Arrive from 4 pm. Show starts at 5 pm.
“LONESOME” DAVE FERGUSON is a one-man lo-fi-hi-impact explosion of Trans-Blues & Country-Dub. This solo show uses only harmonica, human beat-box and vocals, recording live loops and then layering and building those loops to construct a song… Although it’s a solo act it’s not your typical singer-song-whiner type show, expect more in your face dance-style grooves served up in a Deep-South style…
Harmonica player Dave Ferguson has been playing extensively in and around Cape Town and beyond since the early 90s as well as a 12 year stint in the UK (including Nashville, Memphis, Australia & others). Ferguson also opened for The Lemonhead’s Evan Dando, Gemma Ray, Candye Kane (US Blues Singer of The Year 2008) & played with Michelle Shocked as well as doing a private performance at the request of the Counting Crows while they were on tour.
“LONESOME DAVE, A ONE-MAN-MUSIC-MAVERICK THAT SENDS YOU INTO A TIMEWARP OF WARM, DEEP SOUTHERN SOUL, BLUES & COUNTRY SOUNDS, MIXED UP WITH A GOOD MEASURE OF FOOTSTOMPING DUB FUNK AND DANCESTYLE GROOVES. RAW, RETRO-FUTURISTIC GENIUS…” – Heartbeat magazine
“THOSE WHO HAVE SEEN DAVE FERGUSON PLAY LIVE, SPEAK WITH AWE IN HUSHED, YET ANIMATED TONES OF ADMIRATION. IT’S A STYLE THAT’S TARANTINOESQUE IN IT’S COMPLEX SIMPLICITY… – My Music Matrix
