Acclaimed guitarist and two-time SAMA nominee James Grace makes a welcome return to the Alexander Bar Upstairs Theatre in Strand Street with his award-winning production ‘Around the World in 60 minutes’. There are only three performances scheduled, from Thursday to Saturday, September 1 to 3, at 7pm, so interested parties better book in advance.
Following on from his sold-out ‘Guitar Hero’ shows last year, ‘Around the World in 60 Minutes’ explores the variety of styles in which the guitar is featured. From classical to flamenco, acoustic to blues and jazz, Grace takes the listener on a global music journey and demonstrates the fingerboard prowess which recently let him to be described by local media as a “South African icon”.
