(Amber & Nibs at The Alma Cafe, Cape Town, February 2016)

Amber Rubarth and Nibs van der Spuy will shortly set out on their Spring Tour of KZN.

“I'm just excited looking at the wonderful poster Amber has designed for our October, Spring Tour. She is a special kind and one of my newly-found favourite, singer/songwriters. That is not to mention that she is a fabulous guitar and piano player. On our first tour of South Africa last February, I had just fractured my wrist in a crazy fall and I was doubtful that I would even play. It miraculously all came together beautifully and 8 out of our 10 shows were sold out. This time around we are focussing on KwaZulu-Natal, a place Amber truly fell in love with,” explains van der Spuy.

“On this outing, we are going to try different things, brand new songs and some cool collaborations.”
