Digby and the Lullaby
Singer-songwriters Digby and the Lullaby are bringing their critically acclaimed show to the Victoria Hotel Acoustic Cafe in Makhanda (Grahamstown) on Friday, followed by a show at Die Waenhuis in Nieu Bethesda on Sunday December 2.
The duo – made up of 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 always fascinated them on their travels around SA, but that they seldom got to stop over for longer 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.”
Based in St Francis Bay, 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 Makhanda (Grahamstown) concert cost R100 (R40 for students) and may be booked on 079-897-0698 or by e-mailing: firstname.lastname@example.org Tickets for the Nieu Bethesda gig are R180 each and the price includes canapes and a glass of fizz.
