Live and loud

■ Guitarist Albert Frost brings Live and Loud, joined by Schalk Joubert on bass, and Jorik Pienaar, on drums, to The Playhouse in Somerset West, on Friday July 27, at 7.30pm. Two years on from the release of Frost’s SAMA award- winning album The Wake Up, has seen this trio grow the new material seamlessly into a set comprised of Frost’s vast background as composer/performer of material, ranging from blues and rock to world music and jazz. Expect a set of diverse material based around his blues background, breaking away from the stricter blues form to venture into the wider soundscapes of African and psychedelic feels meshed into a world blues rock flavour. Frost will travel through Europe and North America from mid August to early December.
