WHO WILL BE PERFORMING
Percy’s Perseverance started out in 2015 as a no frills, no fuss, two-man Country Folk band with just a stomp box, acoustic guitar and some smooth acoustic bass. The band has grown since then with the incorporation of a drummer, a welcome relief for the lead singer’s left and right feet. Through the transition, they have stayed true to their folk roots while simultaneously acquiring a distinctly Southern Rock/Southern Fried quality along the way.
The band is in the process of writing and recording for their first EP and is slowly making headway into the local music scene in and around Gauteng. They performed at FORR Fest in 2016 and 2017, and were part of the line-up for STRAB Festival in 2017.
Kurt Schröder is a South African story teller and spoken word artist.
Hailing from Pretoria, Kurt has also lived in France and China, while traveling extensively in between.
Kurt’s poems and stories are inspired by his lived experiences, and are reflections on his wrestling with topics such as faith, hope, love, God, and humanity.
With close friend Shae Leigh, Kurt founded Spoken Sessions in May 2012. Birthed out of a desire to invest in local talent, the mission of Spoken Sessions is to create platforms and places for Poets and Performers to grow and showcase their art.
