Guitarist, singer/songwriter and globally respected purveyor of the blues, Dan Patlansky sidles into his second successive decade as one of the world’s finest blues-based storytellers of his generation. He will give one performance at Michaelhouse on his national tour of his blues album Dear Silence Thieves.

In December 2014, Dear Silence Thieves (produced by Theo Crous) was voted the nr. 1 Blues Rock Album in the world released for 2014 by Blues Rock Review/USA, alongside names such as Joe Bonamassa, Rival Sons, Devon Allman, The Black Keys, Philip Sayce, and many more.

“After over a decade of making albums for us, Dan’s seventh album continues to deliver the goods that have made him the premier blues rock guitar player in South Africa, if not one of the top in the world.”– Kevin O’Rourke, Blues Rock Review, USA.

Dan Patlansky appears in the Schlesinger Theatre at Michaelhouse on March 13 at 19h30. Tickets R120 booked through Mrs Angela Jonsson on email: or call 033 234 1314 (weekdays between 08h00 and 13h00)
