    Since surfacing with her remarkable debut, Unspoken, back in 2007, Laurie Levine has meticulously crafted a career that has turned her into a singer-songwriter of real substance.Over seven records and countless live performances, the South African-based artist has taken her original material to a growing fan base, earning multiple accolades along the way. Among these were four nominations at the annual South African Music Awards (SAMA), the most recent being for ‘Tigerlily’- her duo project with singer songwriter Josie Field.

Her music has also received some recognition abroad- the UK release of Six Winters led to two successful UK tours in 2012 and 2014 and rave reviews internationally (No Depression gave it 10/10 and Uncut gave it 8/10).

    GERALD CLARK @18.00

    Gerald Clarke has long been considered the best blues singer to come out of South Africa, there are very few musicians around the world that truly capture the spirit of the blues the way he does. When Gerald opens his mouth he takes you on a journey down to the delta or in this case, the Mighty Zambezi. We are very privileged to have Gerald back from the Czech Republic for his second appearance at Zambezi shores.

    ACADEMIE @19.00

    In just over two years, Academie has made the case that pop music that is as transfixing as it is transcendent and beautiful can emerge out of Johannesburg’s exacting urban milieu. 

    Initially through their live shows and then with 2016’s groundbreaking EP, Volumes, Jean-Louise and Alex Parker have conjured up a pop soundscape that easily places the duo alongside those pushing the frontiers of the genre on the global scene. They have matched this with an arresting aesthetic and a recent slate of intensely conceived performances – all of which have fortified Academie’s standing as among South Africa’s most exciting creative talents.

    SOUTHERN GYSPEY QUEEN @21.00

    Southern Gypsey Queen are a rock n' roll band, end of story. The band have been on a hiatus after drummer Paul Wilson passed away a couple years back. Paul’s one and only drum student Gareth Bunge, recently approached Tammy Thiis and Gareth Wilson to put the band back together. ‘ At first we were anti the idea, we had done one or two shows since Paul passed away but it never really felt quite right. Bunge grew up with us and wasn’t only our roadie for years but also Paul’s only drum student and close friend, after our first show back at Up the creek festival earlier this year we knew that we couldn’t let SGQ die. We are back and we are hungry to rock n roll on the shores of the mighty Zambezi ‘ Gareth Wilson.
