Museum Saturday #GallerySessions with Jak Tomas

Join us for the afternoon in Gallery 2 with the music of Jak Tomas an authentic, passionate and uncompromising artist. While Tomas entrances you with his hypnotic songs and voice, with its incredible range, you can definitely embrace winter with a lovely bowl of pasta and a glass of red wine. The Museum Café will be serving up a special menu for the day that is Italian inspired.

Jak Tomas – the artist formerly known as Joshua Kenneth Grierson – is a self-taught multi-genre singer, songwriter and producer born, raised, and based in Cape Town. Since forming his first band in 1997, Tomas has been a part of various acts covering several genres and instruments, with whom he has toured nationally and internationally. The melodic instincts that have been the bedrock of Tomas’s musical output for over 20 years, have filtered into all his projects and are still firmly present, especially in his solo material.

Tomas has always ignited his world-class, country-inflected folk-rock songs with an unstinting passion that’s all-consuming. Also known for his explosive and emotionally drenched live performances. Tomas recorded his latest album Of Love & Anxiety at his home studio and released it mid-2020. His debut single, I Was Just a Kid / With a Crush was listed on iTunes’ Best of The Week playlist.

No bookings required.
