The Old Mushroom Farm in Karkloof will present a musical soirée-theatre type evening on April 30, 2022, at 18h00.

“Rustic meets Glam - Posh, passionate and playful” is how this show is described. For this elegant evening, Barbie Meyer, teams up with her partner in piano-crime, Jonathan Brauteseth.

Hailing from opposite ends of the coastline, Barbie & Jonathan have become something of an institution in the music and performance industry around the country. They have been performing together for many years in intimate venues countrywide and form a formidable, hilarious and unique pair.

Totally at ease with each other other’s quirks, they pair up to offer both haunting and playful duets. This is interspersed with entertaining bits of information about the ridiculousness of humanity seen through their eyes, each other and the lyrics they perform. Barbie & Jonathan appear to have the perfect recipe for performing heart felt lyrics whilst simultaneously providing improvised stand-up comedy with a dash of poetry between songs. These are two very different personalities with an enchanting connection.

Barbie is an actress yet admits that her first love is singing. This is immediately evident in the power and passion with which she delivers their perfectly chosen songs. Her voice together with Jonathans deep, gravelly tones has been described as pouring double thick cream over rather roughly chopped mango’.

So, don a pair of posh heels, slip on a crisp shirt and dont miss out on an intimate evening of classy musical entertainment. The Spot Bistro will be open before the show if you would like to have a bite to eat. All are welcome to bring your own drinks & glasses - preferably crystal,” Barbie says!
