Get ‘Up Close and Personal’ with guitar maestro Barry Thomson at Tina’s Hotel


Barry Thomson

The Thumbelow Theatre is hosting performances of Barry Thomson’s Up Close and Personal at Tina’s Hotel, 14 Beryldene Road, Kloof at 2pm and 6.30 pm on Sunday, February 5. The show is an unplugged salute to artists who have had a direct influence on his life – musically and personally.

Barry says: “It’s a gentle, intimate show. I have chosen songs that are instantly recognisable hits and some that are not … but they all have musical or lyrical worth. The audience, hopefully, gets a chance to know a little more about me other than seeing me as an all-out rock guitarist.”

His musical menu includes many of the songs from his CD. It features the gentler side of artists like Eric Clapton, Mark Knopfler, Neil Young, The Eagles, Neil Diamond and Jethro Tull. There is also a tribute to the Sugar Man – Rodriguez. The show also features some of Barry’s original songs including Take It in My Stride and Walk a Mile.

“It’s not a show really. It’s about me and a bunch of people sharing an afternoon/evening of good music together. And that’s the word. Together”.


The venue opens 90 minutes before show for drinks. Tickets are R150 (R130 pensioners and FHSSC members). Please note: Tickets are CASH or EFT ONLY. Phone Roland at 082 499 8636 or email
