About


Power duo 'AuldField' is Robin Auld & Wendy Oldfield. They have combined their live energies to make a mix of world, blues & soul and are bringing us into the New Year!!



Robin Auld -

Roots/blues music from Southern African singer, guitarist and writer.

Slide guitar, harmonica, African blues guitar stylings and soul vocals all feature in the fresh sound of Robin Auld. He has released over twenty albums, with several top 20 hits in South Africa. Starting out with stints as sideman guitarist in the Steve Walsh Buddies Band and Lancaster Band, he had several hits with the band Z-Astaire throughout the 80’s. His sound has evolved from the poprock of his earlier recordings into a contemporary roots mix.

Born in Lusaka, Zambia to Scots parents, Robin's childhood was spent alternating between Southern Africa and Scotland; a journey reflected in the African and Celtic influences in his music. He learned to play the guitar by listening to Hendrix, Ry Cooder and Neil Young, also absorbing influences from the various guitarists of Southern Africa such as Steve Newman, Madala Kunene, Tony Cox, Philip Tabane and Louis Mhlanga.

Based in Cape Town, he has performed and recorded in New York, London, Glasgow and Nashville, opening for and performing with acts such as Lloyd Cole, Angelique Kidjo, Osibisa, Michelle Shocked, Jackson Brown and Seasick Steve. Festivals he's performed at include Oppi Koppi, Cambridge Folk Festival, Tartan Hearts, Gold Coast Ocean Fest, and Womad.

He tours at home and abroad solo acoustic with a stompboard and loop pedal, and with an electric trio. For more info or to connect go to: www.robinauld.co.za
