Folk rocker Andre Swiegers shares the stage with his son, guitar virtuous, Emile. They are set to captivate the audience with golden oldies of artists like Paul Simon, Cat Stevens, Bob Dylan, Peter Sarstedt, Jerry Jeff Walker and Creedence Clearwater Revival - as well as their own original songs. André resides in Pretoria and Emile in Somerset West. Occasionally the two forces join, then the generation gap diminishes and a unique symbiosis occurs between father and son.
