SA’s Craziest Guitarist Live At Maynardville

Classic guitar master Derek Gripper brings his complex and acclaimed compositions to the Maynardville Open Air Theatre. WATCH: Gripper shows off his guitar chops in an intimate show.

Classic guitar magician Derek Gripper once spent hours transcribing an entire 21-string Kora (harp) composition to play on his six-string. You know, like this:

And he’s bringing it, along with his entire repertoire, to the Maynardville Open Air Theatre on 24 February 2019.

ABOUT THE SHOW
Gripper’s shows are intimate with the focus purely on his playing and music compositions. For his 2019 concerts, Gripper explores the links between the styles that have influenced his work. His shows tend to turn into an hour or more of wall-to-wall music with the guitarist exploring the capabilities of his guitar live on stage.


ABOUT DEREK GRIPPER
Gripper draws his inspiration from European classical traditions, avant-garde Brazilian music, Malian kora, Cape Town folk, and Indian classical music. He has created a unique, contemporary sound using these influences that has carried him to the world’s stages. He incorporates de-tuning and re-tuning his guitar as part of his compositions, as well as many other acoustic tricks to add effects to songs.

TICKETS TO THE SHOW
Entry to the show costs R180pp and you can book tickets here.
