Blues maestro comes with backup to rock Durbanville

Albert 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. Music fans can look forward to seeing the Albert Frost Trio at Die Boer theatre restaurant in Durbanville on April 20 at 8.30pm.

Frost has recorded with the likes of Arno Carstens, Koos Kombuis, Chris Chameleon, Blues Broers and many others. He has performed with virtually 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.

But his first love is blues, stemming from the influence of his long relationship with the Blues Broers, with whom he has performed since 1994, but it’s with his own “Trio”, consisting of Schalk Joubert (bass) and Jonno Sweetman (drums), that he really starts to “cook”.

Both Joubert and Sweetman are masters of their craft and together they are considered one of the finest rhythm sections in the country.

Expect some breath taking versions of classics by Jimi Hendrix, John Lee Hooker and Muddy Waters to name only a few, as well as many originals from his new album ‘Devils and Gods’. This is a rare chance to see his “own” show as he is in such high demand by other musicians.
