The next Mondays @ 6 at St Clements will take place tonight (January 8, 2024), at 18h00 and will feature Starke & Gaisford doing a tribute to Leonard Cohen, James Taylor and Joni Mitchell.

Bookings are already closed

Dave Starke and Lizzie Gaisford is an acclaimed singer-songwriter duo from Eshowe, Zululand.

Their “day job” is as bandmates in classic rock tribute band, The Katembas, but they are greatly looking forward to sharing some of their favourite artists' songs with a St Clements audience.

Throughout her teens, Lizzie was given an annual marathon guitar lesson by her aunt, instrumentalist Jane Gaisford. The rest of the time was spent filling in the gaps by herself, resulting in a unique playing style hinged largely on alternate tunings, which makes her very well-placed to interpret and perform the great works of Joni Mitchell.

Dave is known for his rich voice and mellow guitar playing. Committed to musical austerity, he prefers simple arrangements that allow the words to take centre stage. He is a past master at performing “Cohen” classics. His previous show, Cohen a Tribute, toured extensively across South Africa including two years at the National Arts Festival Fringe.

Bookings are limited to diners in support of St Clements restaurant and staff. They stay open specially for this project.
