Namibia: Acclaimed Guitarist to Play At the Warehouse Theatre

Albert Frost, undoubtedly one of the most accomplished guitarists in South Africa, has proven himself in the blues and rock genre with great success. Now the Namibian public will have the opportunity to see him perform live at the newly rebranded Warehouse Theatre on Friday, February 1.

Albert, who grew up in Somerset West, South Africa, started playing the guitar when he was only 13. His strength lies is his live performances, his forte - collaborations with numerous artists, amongst others Arno Carstens, Karen Zoid and Robin Auld. He has shared stages with South Africa's finest: Vusi Mahlasela, Louis Mahlanga and most recently performed at the South African Music Awards (SAMAs) with Guy Buttery, Jimmy Dludlu and Selaelo Selota.

Highlights in his career include performing with The Rolling Stones in Spain, playing a show with Oscar winner, Tim Robbins and being part of the REM tour. He performed at the presidential inauguration and celebration of the 10 years of democracy to Nelson Mandela, in front of an audience of 70 000. He has collaborated with double Grammy Award winning Malian legend, Ali Farka Toure.

Having recently re-invented himself with a solo show incorporating a loop pedal which enables him to showcase his considerable ability with both acoustic and electric guitars, Albert's show will be opened by the frontman of the Mojo Blues Electric Band and Small Town Tramp, singer/songwriter PD Stoman.

PD is a self-confessed 'bedroom musician', and as such enjoys nothing more than banging out a blend of acoustic alternative/folk/blues. Since most of his songs are penned on acoustic guitars, punters can expect a variety of solo original material, as well as a good dose of delta-style blues. PD will be joined on stage by good friend and star guitarist Thomas Bokemuller.

Tickets will be available at Computicket for N$90 or at the door for N$100. The show will start at 20h00.
