Soulful guitarist Claire Phillips celebrates her birthday on Saturday and what better way than by hosting her very own show, Up Close and Personal.
“All music at my show will be originally composed music and no cover songs will be performed,” she says.
“For my birthday I’m starting the campaign, ‘I Am Original Music’, where I give the artists the platform to do their original music.
“I’m trying to change the perception that live music needs to be covered. Our music is world class, we just need the people to listen.”
Entry to the show (starts 8pm) is R150 at the door at Lou Lous in Green Point.
Artists on the line-up include YoungstaCPT, Robin P, Don Vino, and Signature SA Band.
