The group who present the Annual Dive Show at the Hexagon Theatre in Pietermaritzburg have got together for a winter show to “warm the cockles of your heart and give you an evening of nostalgia that you will remember for a long time – until Christmas, at least!”

In That’s All Folk, Sandra Styles, Ryan Calder, Tammy Calder, Daniel Rossouw and Katherine McClelland will perform the ultimate in folk music from the 60’s and 70’s. The group, who are known for their wacky humour and beautiful vocals, have taken a look at the folk revival of the 60s and 70s and chosen a bunch of some of the era’s greatest songs and performers.

From traditional folk to folk pop, all the greats are there: Dylan, Baez, Donovan, Pete Seeger, Joni Mitchell, Simon & Garfunkel, Cat Stevens; as well as the lesser remembered Tom Paxton, Jerry Jeff Walker, and Melanie, amongst many others. Even the Beatles make an appearance with their folk influenced Norwegian Wood.

Songs we all remember are there, from Blowin’ in the Wind, Both Sides Now, Homeward Bound, Sounds of Silence, Mr Bojangles, to golden oldies such as Puff the Magic Dragon, Rambling Boy and Those were the Days. In true folk tradition of ‘have guitar, will travel’, the performers are accompanied by guitar only, with Ryan Calder and Daniel Rossouw providing the expert accompaniment.

That’s All Folk runs at the Hexagon Dive from July 12 to 15 at 19h00 for 19h30. Tickets R85 Wednesday and Thursday and R100 Friday and Saturday. These are picnic evenings – bring your food, but no drinks as there is a cash bar. Tables seat 10. Bookings:

The Hexagon Dive is situated on the UKZN Pietermaritzburg campus.
