The Albert Frost Trio (with Schalk Joubert and Jonno Sweetman) will be rocking Die Boer theatre restaurant in Durbanville on Friday, May 15, at 8.30pm.
Frost is a familiar and respected feature of the South African blues rock music scene. For the past 20 years, the energetic performances of this accomplished guitarist have dazzled audiences as he deftly alternates between rhythm and lead, while showcasing acoustic and electric guitars. His first love is blues, stemming from the influence of his long relationship with the Blues Broers, with whom he has performed since 1994 – that’s a relationship that has stretched for more than 20 years.
The Blues Broers have recently become active again, releasing new material in the form of albums ‘Out of the Blue’ (2012) and ‘Into the Red’ (2014.) The ‘Albert Frost Blues Trio Live in Grahamstown’, recorded in 2013 and released earlier this year, reflects the magic of witnessing Frost performing with Joubert and Gibson. Frost has recorded with Arno Carstens, Koos Kombuis, Chris Chameleon, Blues Broers and many others. He has performed with every major artist in South Africa, and with international artists like Ali Faka Toure and Finley Quaye. He has toured with Simple Minds and R.E.M., and supported the Rolling Stones.
