(Brian Finch)

Brian Finch will launch his new CD in intimate style at Tina’s Hotel in Kloof on November 8 and 9.

Recorded at Peace of Eden Studios in Knysna with Howard Butcher producing, this is Brian’s 13th album to date and has been two to three years in the making.

Says Brian “After many fans were asking for a new album, and while living in the solitude of Prince Albert in the Karoo, I have been writing songs over the past couple of years, in between touring and performing. One needs new material and I love coming up with new songs, it’s what my life is all about - being able to share special moments gives me great satisfaction and I cannot wait for the response from my fans. The years are flying by so fast, I realise that all my songs are about Living for Yesterday, hence the title. I have dedicated this album to the memory of the late great guitarist and friend, Ken E Henson, RIP my brother”.

The CD launch tour, where Brian plays songs from Living for Yesterday as well as many golden oldies from his vast catalogue, began in Jefferies Bay (where he spent many good days surfing) and takes in Grahamstown, East London, Richmond, Durban, Johannesburg and Pretoria. Then it’s home for a rest before touring Namibia and heading overseas once more.

Brian will be joined by Dan Chiorboli on percussion and Wayne Coghlan on electric, steel and slide guitar.

The launch is presented in “supper theatre” format and has two performances only at Tina’s Hotel in Kloof.

Performances take place on November 8 at 20h30 with a buffet supper served from 19h00 and November 9 at 14h00 with a carvery lunch served from 12h30. Tickets R195 pp for the meal and show. Show only option available at R120pp (No meal included).
