(Laurie Levine & Josie Field)

Side By Side is an extensive South African tour throughout November and December, supported by Concerts SA, featuring the blues-infused soulful voice of Josie Field combined with the intimate folk, country styles of Laurie Levine.

Laurie and Josie boast 16 years experience, nine albums and a dozen SAMA nominations between them. After two national tours together and dubbed the Collaboration of the Year (2013, The Star) and having just scooped a Standard Bank Ovation Award at the National Arts Festival in Grahamstown 2014, these two Johannesburg based singer songwriters come together to create a beautiful and unique indie folk collaborative side project, Side By Side.

The tour is supported by Concerts SA through the Music Mobility Fund, a funding mechanism which offers opportunities for South African musicians to undertake live music-related projects. A joint South African/Norwegian project housed under the auspices of the Stakeholder Hub within the SAMRO Foundation, Concerts SA receives financial, administrative and technical support from the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, SAMRO and Rikskonsertene.
