(Seb Goldswain)

Modern day guitar maestro, Seb Goldswain will perform two solo acoustic shows over the forthcoming weeks in KZN.

Spending the last ten years perfecting his skills, Goldswain is a highly versatile musician, having studied jazz guitar and composition up to Honours level at UKZN. Armed with either an acoustic or electric guitar and a Marshall stack, his rare ability to dazzle crowds with his energetic original solo sets will impress.

“With these shows I am hoping to further establish myself as a performing artist and concert guitarist in my home province of KZN,” says Goldswain. “I spent over a decade honing my ability for hours on hours a day on the instrument while studying music at high school and tertiary level. I released my debut album last year, and now I want to raise my hand to the media and the public and invite them in to see what I'm all about as an artist and what I've been working on for all that time.”

Seb Goldswain had the honour of opening for George Ezra on his 2015 world tour after the launch of Goldswain’s debut album, and he has also performed alongside Matthew Mole, Beatenberg, Kahn Morbee from the Parlotones, Ard Matthews from Just Jinjer and Dan Patlansky among many others.

With a role model of Australian guitarist, Tommy Emmanuel who exudes sheer passion and dedication to putting on a monstrously good show, is something Goldswain finds very inspiring. “I love his guitar-playing and think he is a musical phenomenon.”

“Both of the venues have loads of character. The Westville theatre is a comfortable and homey space, usually filed with its regular patrons as well as curious newcomers, and will be a great show to bring friends along to enjoy my show over a picnic dinner.  The Hilton Bush Lodge is very upmarket and memorable setting, and will include a dinner in the ticket price.”

Dates and venues for the performances are: 

February 17 at 19h00: The Hilton Bush Lodge, Private Road D534, Hilton College Road, Hilton. Entrance R125 including dinner. Bookings on 033 004 0033.
