Arguably the KZN Midlands’ best-loved music venue, Music in The Hills (MiTH) is an opportunity for beginners, professionals, and passionate music fans to share the joy of music at The Knoll Historic Guest Farm in Hilton.


19h00: Oscar Rorvik

A schooled keyboard player, Oscar from Deep Heat has evolved into a guitar-playing singer-songwriter on the KZN scene, graduating from pubs and clubs to White Mountain last year and more recently, Splashy Fen.

Having shared the stage with the likes of good friends Rowan Stuart, Steve Fataar, Paul Arthur and Brian Finch, amongst others, Oscar performs with his own authentic brand of humour and passion, singing warm inspiring songs of the heart, truth, and finding one`s way in life. He mixes his original compositions with classic popular hits from Bob Dylan to the Bee Gees, Van Morrison, and more.

With his unique finger-plucking style, and strong voice, it is always a pleasure to have him onstage, projecting his energy and "Deep Heat" to the audience, and adding his percussion and beats behind others.


20h00: Rhiannon Reid

Well-known to MiTH from performing with the Reid Family Band, Rhiannon Reid is a local musician, and now a published author. Previously a student of Kech Sanchez, and a singer in the Howick High School band, she has honed her skills on guitar and vocals over the years. For this event she will be accompanied by her dad, Vince, who has had an interest in music from a young age and is mainly self-taught. He plays keyboard, guitar, and recently, tin whistle.


21h00: TChristian

Pietermaritzburg-born TChristian, formally known as Thanduxolo Christian, had a goal to reach the highest level of education. During his years of education, TChristian focused on music and vocal training. He majored in drumming, getting the opportunity to play for various artists around the world, like Simphiwe Dana, Joyous Celebration, Themba Mkwena, Hlengiwe Mhlaba, and Ayanda Ntanzi to name a few.

In 2014, TChristian made the transition to performing at various eateries; an environment where he feels music is best appreciated. He is also the proud owner of his own brand, which supplies entertainment for family events, weddings, parties, or any event that might be enhanced by live music to help the soul recharge.

TChristian believes that the skill of being a one-man-band is the most appealing musical enterprise known to man. He brings that alive and creates amazing musical performances, drawing influences from jazz, soul, Afro-beat, fusion music, RnB, and many more. With one album released, and four singles, he has manufactured a sound that delights the ears – the true experience of a live sound with audio technicality.
