HAIRY LEGGED LENTIL EATERS (article first published : 2005-10-1)

Opening at its new venue on October 4, the Durban Folk Club will feature the irrepressible Hairy Legged Lentil Eaters, as well as solo performances from Roly Struckmeyer and Fiona Tozer.

Finding a label for this band can prove difficult, as Dave Marks once alluded to: "This mixed match music act from Sleepy Hollow … put on a magic show that doesn’t only include songs about Hobbits, Goblins and vegetarian leather workers. They are the most eclectic folk band this side of the Limpopo." Best described as a collective multiple personality disorder, the Hairies have been legging it around the Folk Club/Festival circuit since 1991. Consider what these guys do for day jobs - from green men to grey men; weavers to wiremen; buskers to bean counters; science masters to masters of all trades. The glue that keeps this bunch together is a profound sense of enjoyment in the music and the performance.

The line up is Huyton Watts (vocals, harmonica), Brian Bedingfield (guitar, vocals), Chris Bester (guitar, slide-guitar, keyboards), Angus Burns (guitar), Barry Meintjes (bass), Mark Schonau (violin).

Music starts at 17h30 (doors are open from 17h00) at the Jazz Centre, University of KwaZulu-Natal Durban campus. Entrance R20 (R10 DFC members and students). Cash bar and secure parking. Details from Fiona on 072 822 7988.
