(Nibs van der Spuy)

Nibs van der Spuy will be releasing his new Anthology album, A Circle of Swallows, on his birthday, February 20, 2020.

This promises to be a special evening celebrating the last two decades of his recorded career and will take place at the Westville Theatre Club on February 21 and 22.

Van der Spuy explains: "These 17 handpicked, dreamy instrumentals and rural love songs represent a cross-section of my recorded work over the past two decades. They are deeply rooted in the soil of my beloved KwaZulu-Natal, where the rolling, lush hills meet the Indian Ocean on the east coast of Southern Africa.

“A few years ago, I spread my wings and migrated north, making a second home on the Lisbon coast of Portugal, but like the swallow, which travels thousands of miles every year between Africa and Europe, I will always return to my roots. In Portugal, swallows are symbols of romanticism, family, love and loyalty and also represent growth, time and new beginnings. I hope this anthology somehow embodies this and leaves you with a sense of home, as you journey to new frontiers and beyond," he adds.

Performances take place on February 21 and 22 February at 19h30 (doors open at 19h00) at the Westville Theatre Club, 6 St James Avenue, Westville (Westville Pool). Bring picnic baskets

A Circle of Swallows Anthology CDs will be on sale at these shows.
