Rhodesia Was... 'Folk in War'


After a hectic week, lived to the full, it was good to know that there was a special place out on the Umtali Road where you could meet up with friends on a Sunday evening to 'chill out and sink a few chiboolies' and recharge your batteries before launching forth once again into the week ahead. From beneath the shadow of the long bush war, many songs emerged that reflected the emotions of the Rhodesian people at the time. The driving force behind these weekend gigs was Clem Tholet and his wife Jean. When joined by the talents of Les & Ray Griffin, Paddy Rocks and Sheila Taylor (to mention a few), you were guaranteed a night of the finest music and more from some of Rhodesia's 'Folk... in War'.
