UKZN alumnus Seb Goldswain will perform at the Centre for Jazz and Popular Music at 18h00 on 16 August. 

The 24-year-old modern day guitar maestro is currently on his ‘Not-Quite-Spring’ KwaZulu-Natal tour which consists of six acoustic performances around the province. 

With this tour, Goldswain hopes to further establish himself as a performing artist and concert guitarist in his home province. 

‘I spent over a decade honing my ability on the guitar while studying music at high school and tertiary level.’ He studied Jazz Guitar and Composition up to Honours level at UKZN. 

Goldswain released his debut album, Pictures of a Thousand Words, last year and has performed both locally and internationally, including alongside world star George Ezra and local artists such as Ard Matthews, Beatenberg, Kahn Morbee of The Parlotones, and Lloyd Cele. 

He lists Australian guitarist, Tommy Emmanuel, as one of his greatest influences. 

‘My aim is to provide an experience for the audience. Songs and music in general are very powerful tools, and that combined with an excited interactive crowd and the right mix of songs can make for some amazing memories.’ 

Tickets, available at the door on the night of the show, cost R60 for general admission, R40 for pensioners, and R20 for students. 

*The Centre for Jazz and Popular music (CJPM) is on Level 2 of the Shepstone Building on Durban’s Howard College campus. For further information, contact Thuli Zama on 031 260 3385 or email Zamat1@ukzn.ac.za.
