KEN E HENSON (article first published : 2006-07-29)

The Nite Out Sessions at Vestige Bistro & Bar on the corner of St Thomas and Musgrave Roads are rapidly becoming the home for many Durban musical icons, not to mention a handful of South Africa’s top musicians who make a feature on a number of occasions. The sessions have also attracted international acts in the past six months and these will be a regular addition to the line up.

Appearing on August 3, Ken E Henson (born Kenneth Edward Henson), has been on the music scene for over four decades. He has played lead guitar for some of South Africa’s most extraordinary bands such as Abstract Truth, Leeman Ltd., The Sounds and Freedom's Children, arguably South Africa's greatest rock band.

His self-taught playing of the traditional Indian stringed instrument, the sitar, further enhances the Eastern feel and confirmed his exotic, progressive, and non-commercial style of music. In his journey in the musical landscapes, he has played at various places from pubs to festivals and releasing an array of albums along the way with an assortment of bands and artists.

Always at ease in his style of music, whether he is playing scale on guitar or strumming in the sitar, Ken E Henson once describes his style on music as “…free-form music – It's really a fusion of blues, folk, jazz and Eastern music.”

Ken E Henson’s Nite Out Session will be at Vestige Bistro & Bar on August 3 at 20h30. For more information, please contact Derryn or Lisa at 031 201 7767.
