(Fiona Tozer)

On April 28, the Maritzburg Musician's Club will combine old familiar faces with a musical legend in her own right - Fiona Tozer! Joining her on the night will be former Deja-Vu's Dave Rossouw's fresh up-and-coming local band - Kodiak.

Singer-songwriter and guitarist Fiona Tozer started playing music and writing songs while still a teenager, influenced by the acoustic music and folk revival of the 70s, and particularly the music of Joni Mitchell. She went on to travel widely, developing her songwriting skills and absorbing styles from her environment.

Since coming to South Africa, she has played at folk music venues and festivals around the country and was a founder of the Durban Folk Club in 1986. Her songs, in contemporary folk and acoustic rock style, have been released on the albums to date; Odyssey (with the band Bona Fide), Neverland, Light and Sound, and recently released Somewhere Else. Venturing into other genres of music, she studied music at the University of KwaZulu-Natal, completing a Masters degree in composition in 2008.

She is currently working with an experimental group called Quark, blurring the boundaries of mixed genres of music, and with a new album in the pipeline. For more information visit

Kodiak is a PMB based band of friends formed to perform songs that they have loved to play and hear over the years and hope to record an album this year with some originals they have been working on.

The performance takes place on April 28 at 20h00 at The Red Door. Entrance R40. The home of the Maritzburg Musicians Club, The Red Door is situated in Quarry Rd, off Victoria Road, in Pietermaritzburg. Car guards on duty. More information from Roger O’Neill on 083 230 6562
