Colour your Mother’s Day blue with Sappi

Elvis Blue is set to make this year’s Sappi Mother’s Day Concert memorable!

The concert will again be held at the Lowveld National Botanical Garden on Sunday, 13 May, with Elvis as the headline act.

Performing the opening act of the Sappi Mother’s Day concert is 20-year-old Refentse Morake, a former busker turned star.

The concert, with Jacaranda FM as a media partner, starts at 12 noon and the gates open at 9am

Gourmet food market

Apart from a stunning, soothing setting with music for the soul, a gourmet food market will be selling artisan food and drinks to ensure that not only moms, but the entire family have a delicious choice of items to nibble on whilst enjoying the show.

Remember to bring your picnic blanket and/or chairs!

Tickets will be on sale from Computicket. Entry is free for pre-schoolers, while primary school learners and pensioners pay R45. All other tickets cost R85. The day’s proceeds will be donated to the Lowveld National Botanical Garden for conservation development projects.

Visitors to the concert will also be able to have a professional family portrait taken on the day – for free – at the Sappi photo booth.

Apart from the wonderful music line-up, there will be guided garden walks and a full programme of fun has been organised for the little ones at the kiddies’ entertainment area.

Major stakeholders include the South African National Biodiversity Institute, the Lowveld National Botanical Garden, Jacaranda FM, Vodacom, J&M Security, Lowveld Link and Total Signs.

Performing Artists

Elvis Blue

Elvis Blue is set to make this year’s Sappi Mother’s Day Concert memorable.

His shows are known for not only the perfect blend of well-known original hits and new music, but also for his comical and often whimsical story-telling that sweeps audiences along in a personal and entertaining journey.

Refentse Morake

Performing the opening act of the Sappi concert, 20-year-old Refentse Morake, former busker turned star, brings an African flavour of sorts to the event.

His warm voice accompanied by the strains of the harmonica, some pop-hooks, and the guitar are just some of the sounds that make up the wonderful sound of his music.
