 Bill Knight in Rolling Stone – Tales of a Troubadour

Come, gather ’round people, wherever you roam … Well, the times may not be a-changing, or maybe changing too quickly for anyone to make any meaningful assessment of them via music, but there’s a thing or three to be learnt from the old sages. A band of them: reclusive, half-forgotten balladeers are scattered around South Africa. Weathered, weary, dressed all in black with gravedigger’s hats, they’ll pass around tales like the eye of the three fates and prophesy with uncanny accuracy and historicise with earthy rhythms the stories of the South African folk. Not the volk, mind, but all the people in this, the strangest of places. The troubadour Bill Knight is one of them.
