While My Guitar is set to rock the National Arts Festival in Grahamstown, but before they go, they will be giving one performance of the show at the Hexagon Dive in Pietermaritzburg on June 24.

Musicians Erin Fourie and Daniel Rossouw are back to explore the many worlds of The Beatles in this show, performing a range of Beatles' songs, from the famous to the lesser-known. Accompanied by guitars, the duo's fresh interpretation of the classic songs is placed within the context of the original era, with interesting snippets of information. This nostalgic yet contemporary view of the world, through the eyes of the songs, leaves a lasting impression of memorable tunes and beautiful vocals.

Erin Fourie, a previous Idols finalist, was last seen in All That Jazz, and the Playhouse production of The Sound of Music as Sister Bertha, and Daniel Rossouw is a member of popular group Pan Latino, and both are well known on the KZN music scene.

Devised and directed by Peter Mitchell, While My Guitar … forms part of the Hexagon’s Prefest Fest.

The performance will take place on June 24 at 18h00 for 18h30 in the Hexagon Dive, on the UKZN Pietermaritzburg campus. Tickets R100. This is a picnic evening – bring your food, but no drinks as there is a cash bar. Tables seat 10, but bookings can be for less. Bookings: email
