Louise Carver and Ross Learmont are performing at Stanford Hills Estate on 3 January 2020. This is Carver’s fifth concert to welcome in the new year at the estate, which lies at the foot of the Klein River Mountains.
Carver says: “This is becoming a tradition for me. Playing all my hits on a protea farm with vineyards and orchards is a beautiful way to start the year. I am so excited that Ross Learmonth will be joining me for the 2020 concert, it is going to be a special one!”
Top 10 hits
Both Carver and Learmonth have had 40 Top 10 hits between them over the years and this show will be filled with music many South Africans know and love. The performances will include collaborations with both artists singing on each other’s songs, plus there are also some surprise covers in the works.
Louise Carver has had multiple radio hits with singles such as Empty Fantasy, Home and Warrior featuring. Zulu Boy. Internationally, she has had two number one European hits and two US Billboard number ones, with Sunrise, and Crazy Enough.
Apart from chart success, Louise Carver has been nominated for 11 South African music awards, produced six studio albums, one live album, and was a 46664 ambassador for the Nelson Mandela foundation.
After nearly two decades of touring and recording, Ross Learmonth is about to embark on a series of solo shows titled Bare Bones – a journey detailing the explanation of the songwriting and events that led to his success as Prime Circle’s frontman. It will be the first time that Learmonth ventures out on his own and a solo album is on the cards for 2020.
