Acclaimed South African guitarist Tony Cox will present a Watch Party on his Facebook page this evening (April 25 at 19h30).

The title of this acclaimed guitar show, The Loneliness of the Long Distance Acoustic Guitarist, came from Tony's first-ever appearance at the National Arts Festival in 1990. It was reprised in 2005 for the show being broadcast this coming Saturday, 15 years later.

Now, in 2020 it is 15 years since the 2005 show and thirty 30 years since the original show, and high time to broadcast it in its entirety. The recording and production is excellent with Tony in peak guitar-playing, story-telling form.

Join Tony on a Watch Party from his Facebook page this tonight (Saturday April 25, 2020) at 19h30 and chat in real-time with the artist himself. The show will start promptly at 19h30 -
