Smaller towns call to mu­sic duo

The Herald (South Africa) - - Leisure -

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.

● Tick­ets for the Gra­ham­stown con­cert cost R100 (R40 for stu­dents) and may be booked on 079-897-0698 or by e-mail­ing: Tick­ets for the Nieu Bethesda gig are R180, which in­cludes canapes and a glass of fizz. Book­ings: 063-746-8928.

QUIRKY COU­PLE: Digby and the Lul­laby are sure to take mu­sic lovers on a mag­i­cal jour­ney with their indie-folk sounds
