An Intimate Evening with Johnny Clegg

Real Live Concerts presents An Intimate Evening with Johnny Clegg

Johnny will be delighting his fans with rare unplugged performances at the Baxter. This very intimate show will include storytelling by Johnny, where he talks about the events in his life and the political history of South Africa and the world at that time that motivated him to write that song.

It is a personal journey, which is uplifting, moving and also humorous at times.

Johnny Clegg is a dancer, anthropologist, singer, songwriter, academic, activist and French knight. Whilst all of these tags are fitting, none of them can accurately describe the energetic, passionate human being who has become one of South Africa’s greatest musical exports. Clegg is an icon of South African music.

Recently awarded three honorary doctorates from Dartmouth College, CUNY and University of the Witwatersrand, on Freedom day, 27 April 2012, Johnny Clegg received the presidential IKHAMANGA award as part of the National Orders ceremony. The National Orders are the highest honour a citizen can receive for his/her contribution to South Africa.

Watch Johnny perform “Scatterlings of Africa” on Expresso:
