Following her sold-out collaboration with Freshlyground's Zolani Mahola, musician Karen Zoid goes Under the Covers for five nights at Cape Town's Theatre on the Bay. The unplugged show features all the songs she wishes she had written herself (as well as a few guilty pleasures), including hits by Lady Gaga, Leonard Cohen, Miriam Makeba, Modern Talking, Beethoven, The Beatles, and Queen.
The intimate performance explores music that has influenced Zoid throughout her life and features special guests from The Africa Voices Trust. (This non-profit organisation, geared towards the development of talented and deserving young musicians, performed on Josh Groan's Straight to You tour.)
Afrikaans- and English-speaking fans
Since releasing her first solo album in 2002, Zoid has become an important part of the local rock scene. She has managed to balance popular appeal with critical praise and has been supported by both Afrikaans- and English-speaking fans. Zoid was named Best Female Artist at the 2008 South African Music Awards and has shared a stage with international acts like John Mayer, Annie Lennox, Metallica, Simple Plan, Seal, and UB40.
Karen Zoid's Under the Covers is on at Cape Town's Theatre on the Bay from 27 November to 1 December. Tickets are available from Computicket. For more information, go to www.karenzoid.co.za.
