WESTVILLE-based band, Connecting Stars, will be performing at the Music at the Shed event at Meadows Tea Garden in Inanda Road, Hillcrest on May 27.
The folk rock duo, made up of Cheryl and Martin Engel, officially formed in 2012 but have been singing and playing on stage and in the studio for over 10 years before that.
Cheryl has extensive experience as a studio session singer and Martin was formerly the manager and bass player of rock band tree63 and is the owner of Dog Ears Studios and Sesalos Media, a recording studio and video production company.
Acoustic guitar, piano and hauntingly beautiful melodies and harmonies form the backbone of the Connecting stars experience, intertwined with strains of glockenspiel, ukelele, harmonica and mandolin. Cheryl draws on both painful and joyful life experience to craft poetry that forms the lyrical basis of Connecting Stars’ memorable songs.
Gates open at 6.30 pm and music starts at 8 pm. Tickets are R100. Booking is essential, phone Cheryl at 083 381 9080.
