MIM ERASMUS FOR LUNA LOUNGE VALENTINE (article first published : 2008-02-2)

Miriam Backhouse aka Mim Erasmus used to be known as the "First Lady of Folk" in the UK, and when she started gigging in Durban, the press named her the "Queen of Folk".

She will perform on Valentine’s Day (February 14) at the Luna Lounge in one of her rare solo performances before re-launching her international career at Splashy Fen in March. Her programme includes an evening of unforgettable love songs, from The Rose to All around my hat.

Mim has earned the respect of musicians and audiences alike, always performing at her sparkling best. Celebrating 60 years on planet Earth in May, she remains forever young and enthusiastic for her art, and is an inspiration for many younger performers.

By definition, Folk Music can be played or sung by anyone. It is the truest form of cultural expression through music, which can be shared with the voice alone, or a solo instrument. A Folk Song takes us to another world, another story, another era, in the space of a few minutes, and there are centuries of songs to choose from. A Folk Tune can make us tap our feet, or weep with its plaintiveness.

Mim will appear at 18h30 for 19h00 on February 14 at Luna Lounge’s new venue at 16 Dan Pienaar Road in Kloof. Tickets R50 (R100 includes two course vegetarian meal. Booking essential through Debbie on 072 280 1949.
