Digby and the Lul­laby

Weekend Post (South Africa) - - Arts & Entertainment -

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: chanel5louise@gmail.com Tick­ets for the Nieu Bethesda gig are R180 each and the price in­cludes canapes and a glass of fizz.
