The Lion, The Bear & The Panther will be the main attraction at the next MiTH event on September 21, 2022 at The Knoll Historic Guest Farm.


19h00: Charles Webster

MiTH's own Charles Webster returns with a collection of Afrikaans classics from the likes of Laurika Rauch, Johannes Kerkorrel, Koos du Plessis and Lucas Maree. Webster is known for his deep baritone and gentle acoustic guitar work, and looks forward to sharing the Afrikaner half of his heritage with you.

20h00: Hensie van Staden & Co.

Hensie van Staden is a musical force of nature that one spontaneously gravitates towards. He has been performing and composing music since the 80’s, later touring extensively with unique acts like Fumadores & RooiBaardt. He brings intelligence and humour to songwriting and performance; and since lockdown, also brings his son and daughter to join in on his musical journey of unexpected genres. He is a master on the classical guitar with vocal acrobatics, also featuring violin and concertina. He currently lives in Ladysmith, KZN with his musical family.

21h00: The Lion, The Bear & The Panther

Formerly known as AVADE, the three members - Ross, Brendon and Ruben, now perform under the moniker The Lion, The Bear & The Panther. With the popularity and success of Ross and Ruben’s acoustic duo The Lion & The Bear, it made sense to add Brendon (aka The Panther) to the fray for certain shows. AVADE is just a name, as is The Lion, The Bear & The Panther. The energy, the passion, the music, the three humans involved ... are the same. Energy, passion, power and joy. That was AVADE, and THIS is The Lion, The Bear & The Panther. Seriously – you don’t want to miss this!


ENTRANCE: R50- Cash or Zapper at the Door
