South African Folk Rock Duo, Connecting Stars (made up of husband and wife team Cheryl and Martin Engel) are making headway in the American country music scene (a difficult scene to break into). Recently nominated for the Texas Sounds International Country Music Awards, they have also garnered attention for two separate singles – ‘Breathe’ which was shortlisted for Country Music TV and “Stuck” also featured on Country Music television (the same song made it to No 28 on the USA AC Billboards chart). They kick off their tour to the US this June and will be holding a fund-raising concert to help with travel costs.
The event will take place this Friday, April 17th at Café Indaba from 7:30pm. Tickets are R80 per person and will also contribute to production costs for a DVD, documenting the tour. For more information and to buy tickets go to www.connectingstars.com
