Karen Zoid goes unplugged at Die Boer

Karen Zoid goes unplugged at Die Boer

Popular singer/songwriter Karen Zoid will be performing at Die Boer Theatre Restaurant in an unplugged set with Henry Steele on guitar from Wednesday to Friday, June 3 to 5.

Zoid, whose early music resonated so strongly with the youth that her groupies were deemed the “Zoid Generation”, has already released five solo albums in her career.

The artist released her first album 14 years ago and the public and the critics were instantly hooked, especially on the single, ‘Afrikaners is plesierig’. This song has become one of the biggest Afrikaans hits in recent times. Her music in both Afrikaans and English has won several awards, from SAMA’s to a recent Woordfees award.

The singer-songwriter is arguably best known for her sense of integrity that has inspired her to both speak her mind and to write emotionally charged lyrics – attributes that have allowed her to carve out a solid niche in a notoriously fickle South African music scene.

“All the stuff that goes around making an album – the promo, the interviews, making videos, the artwork, that’s work. Playing live? That’s what I love,” Zoid has said.
