Opening act:

Frank Freeman
is a loaded pistol in the South African music scene. Anxiously waiting
to be set off into the ears of Mzansi's music lovers. His latest project
entitled Frank Freeman is steadily becoming the live act to experience.
With playlisted songs on most campus stations and a variety of online
stations, people are starting to take notice of the extremely capable 20
year old from Free State who's armed with a guitar and soulful tunes
that take you back to the old sound of rock 'n roll.

with a full piece band since 2011, Frank Freeman has shared the stage
with artists like Valiant Swart, Dan Shout, Francois Van Coke, Van Coke
Kartel, Karin Zoid, Jack Parrow, Fokofpolisiekar and a whole list of
other popular bands and artists. Setting his sights on a bigger
audience, Frank has worked hard and toured all over the country
establishing the band as a solid live act. He's also performed at some
of SA's biggest festivals like VryFees, MK By Die Dam, Splashy Fen and
Synergy Live Music Festival. With a background much like that of a
wunderkind, Frank has travelled internationally representing the country
as a musician at the early age of 14. Still in his teens, he also
formed part of a school band that was nominated for a South African
Traditional Music Award. But a magnet as strong as rock 'n roll forced
Frank to gravitate toward the guitar. Playing in the band Colour Blind
(who won Rockspaaider in 2009) 

Frank along with his band mates picked up
two MK Awards nominations and had two music videos on the MK Top Ten
chart in 2010.

We look forward to these two musicians playing at Backsberg this Sunday! 

See you there!
