MBABANE – Another Wednesday Night Blues will take place at House on Fire next week featuring acclaimed American guitarist George Worthmore.
House on Fire Manager Jeanine von Wissell said tickets to the show would be sold at the door for E50. She said doors would open at 7.30pm for an open mic session where people will be encouraged to share their talents before the main act.
Worthmore, who will be the star of the show, has been in the New York City music scene for over 20 years. According to Von Wissell, he began with a one-year stint as a guitarist with Kinky Friedman. He’s played backup guitar for Bo Diddley, Ben E. King, Screamin’ Jay Hawkins, Lou Christy, and The Platters.
He has also played shows as a second guitarist with Hot Tuna. He emigrated to South Africa in 1997 where he owned and operated the world famous Blues Room, that country’s number one, award winning, live music venue. Since 2004 he has expanded his performing into film and TV and has acted with William H.
Macy, Robert Vaughn, and Ron Perlman. His current show is a tour de force of solo acoustic guitar, from Ragtime to Blues, with some Bach thrown in for the more serious appreciators of the instrument.
