An Intimate Session with Albert Frost

  • Stanford Hills Estate

Albert Frost is a familiar and respected feature of the South African blues-rock music scene. For the past two decades, the energetic performances of this accomplished guitarist have dazzled audiences as he deftly alternates between rhythm and lead, while showcasing acoustic and electric guitars. His first love is blues, stemming from the influence of his long relationship with the Blues Broers with whom he has performed since 1994. His patent enjoyment of the music he performs and his instruments as well as his charming rapport with the audience, keep his admirers captivated and returning for more.
