(Rusty Red)

Durban ‘Bluesman’ Rusty Red is set to headline at the Rhumbelow Theatre at Tina’s in Kloof this coming weekend (May 6 & 7) with his debut offering, Crossroads, a tribute to Eric Clapton and Friends. Accompanied by his countrymen, Chris Melling on drums and lefty Skippy Kubheka on bass guitar, the trio will meet audiences at the Crossroads and take them on a journey through a soundtrack driven by blues icons: Eric Clapton, John Mayer, Muddy Waters, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Jimi Hendrix and more.

The show will highlight Eric Clapton’s greatest hits from his early days in Cream, The Yardbirds and as a solo artist, a career that has spanned more than four decades and has earned him a triple induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

Eric Clapton drew inspiration from BB King, Jimi Hendrix, Muddy Waters among other Blues legends, and in turn Clapton inspired modern Blues musicians including the likes of John Mayer. His influence and collaborations have earned him 18 Grammy Awards, of which our own Blues craftsmen will showcase favourites in this stellar performance.

In the line-up will be the latest and greatest hits including Before you accuse me, Lay down Sally, Crossroads, Change The World, Pride and Joy, Little Wing, Wonderful tonight, Slow Dancing in a burning room and many more.

Presented by Black Lapel Productions, performances take place on May 6 at 20h00 and on May 7 at 14h00 and 18h30. (Venue opens 90 minutes before show for drinks)
