Dave Abbot

TIMES: Saturday, 28 May @ 11:30 to 14:30

Dave Abbott was born in England on …..err… we’ll skip the date…. and came to South Africa nearly 40 years ago and started “ABBOTT & CRABB”, he is now settled in Johannesburg where he lives with his wife and 2 daughters, he considers himself a South African and not an Englishman!! As well as his work with “ABBOTT & CRABB”, Dave Abbott is also an accomplished solo entertainer/comedian, musician, d.
As an entertainer he combines silly stories and songs with an extremely accomplished instrumental and vocal ability, he plays Guitar, Keyboards, Fiddle, and Harmonica His musical style runs from 60’s to 2016’s but the best description would be “Let’s Have a Good Time” music. His huge experience means you are guaranteed a party whatever your age group or mix of people and you needn’t be afraid of him offending anyone either….it’s just not his style. He has also just released a CD called ASISA, if you want to know what that’s all about just ask him. He will be playing most of the tunes at the Expo.

Yvonne Berger and Stirling. Stirling is a EE red border collie and is a 4 year old dog…Stirling does tend to get a distracted when he has an audience and gets a bit stressed, so here is hoping for a good performance. The music choice is Bambaleo.

Sheina is a 3 year old  border collie who is full of the joys of life. She loves playing with balls, any type. She also loves fluffy toys and teddies and enjoys playing. Sheina is a joy to have in our lives, and keeps on us our toes. In the park she enjoys running with our other border collie Reilly and our other dogs chasing the birds. She also plays with our 3 hand raised kittens, we just have to keep on reminding her they are babies, as when she gets excited she can be over the top. When they have eaten she licks their faces clean and is so sweet to them. She loves learning, and is always game to learn a new trick.
