Barrydale has secured top international jazz band Skyjack to perform at the Karoo Art Hotel on Thursday 15 December as part of a national tour.
All members of Skyjack are acclaimed musicians and band leaders, bringing their playful energy to create a powerhouse of dynamic sound from deep African grooves to heavy-hitting jazz rides.
Kyle Shepherd, one of South Africa's leading progressive jazz artists, features on piano. On double bass is Shane Cooper, who doubles as an electronic music producer. Both are Standard Bank young artist of the year winners. Jonno Sweetman on drums is one of SA’s most sensitive percussionists. The Swiss brass section comprises Andreas Tschopp on trombone and Marc Stucki on saxophone.
Barrydale’s tourism community helped make the gig possible, with the hotel hosting the event. Accommodation is sponsored by the hotel and Doorways BnB, with musicians’ meals by Mez, Karoo Daisy and Makers Brew.
