Smaller towns call to music duo
Singer-songwriters Digby and the Lullaby will perform at the Victoria Hotel Acoustic Cafe in Grahamstown on Friday November 16 and at Die Waenhuis in Nieu Bethesda on Sunday December 2.
The duo – married couple Darren and Roochi Peens – will take music lovers on a journey that seems to blur the boundaries between reality and fiction.
Both discovered a love for playing music at an early age.
“I wrote my first song when I was seven years old. When I played it for my mom she didn’t believe me until I showed her the lyrics I’d scribbled on a piece of paper,” Roochi recalled.
Darren said the small towns they visited on their travels always fascinated them, but they seldom got to stop over for more than a few minutes.
“This time we’ve singled out Grahamstown and Nieu Bethesda as towns we’d love to play in – and partnered with two amazing venues to make it happen,” he said.
Based in St Francis Bay and parents to a little boy, Digby and the Lullaby have captivated audiences from New York to Bahrain, where they were invited to film five of their songs in the royal family’s private recording studio.
