(Barry Thomson)

Barry Thomson’s new solo acoustic show titled Times Like These reflects on past and present personal experiences. The show content is largely based on finding the light in the darkness, finding a peaceful happy place in the midst of our mad world. Songs have been carefully chosen to tell stories which everyone can relate to ... ‘sometimes you’re the windshield, sometimes you’re the bug’.

Also featured will be stripped down acoustic versions of popular hit songs from The Reals tribute shows including Dire Straits, Fleetwood Mac, Tom Petty, James Taylor, Rodriguez, The Eagles, Jethro Tull, John Mayer, Jackson Browne and Neil Diamond.

The songs will touch your heart and get your foot tapping!

The show takes place in association with The Rhumbelow Theatre at the Northlands Bowling Club, 50 Margaret Maytom Avenue, Durban North, on May 4 at 20h00. (Venue opens 90 minutes before show for picnic dinner)
