nominated for a SAMA (South African Music Award) for 2015

Read Latest Review

Multiple SAMA award winning acoustic guitarist Tony Cox has turned his attentions to South African music with this his latest CD release titled Padkos; a word he uses to describe both food for the road and music as food for the soul.

‘Consistently brilliant’ - AudioVideo, Richard Haslop

A homage to great South African composers, Padkos is an album packed with some of the most well known and best-loved SA songs and melodies that go back to the beginning with Cox and are deeply woven into his and our collective fabric.

Among the tracks on the CD are, P J Power's, Jabulani (see vid) Bright Blue's, Weeping (see vid) the old traditional Sarie Marais, Impi by Juluka and Nico Carsten's Zambezi. Mixed in there are a few new original songs and instrumentals that have been inspired and pushed out by Tony’s life experiences these last few years.

Padkos is an exceptional and unique recording and is a clear and stunning display of skill and musical craftsmanship by one of our greatest South African guitarists.

In Concert at Die Ou Pastorie

Shot in an exquisite garden to a capacity audience at Die Ou Pastorie near Magaliesberg, this DVD shows one of South Africa’s finest guitarists in full flight. Packed wall-to-wall with Cox’s inimitable guitaring and playing some of SA’s most beloved tunes. It is his sheer command of the realm of music via a wooden box with six strings, all sheathed in a throw away humour that has made this home-brewed guitarist a much-loved icon of the acoustic guitar in SA and makes this DVD a must-have for any South African or indeed any lover of fine music.

If you’ve ever hankered after being able to lay down a blues groove and understand how to make it sound really good and authentic now’s your chance to learn to do just that. Guitar in the Woods is an ongoing series of 3 workshops given by Tony over a 3-month period. Each series will cover a different genre of music accessed via the acoustic guitar.

These first series of workshops are all to do with the Blues. Tony has a formidable blues style and although not primarily known for performing traditional blues, his command and expansion of the genre can clearly be heard in his original recorded works.

You are free to attend just one, two or all three workshops. You will though achieve maximum benefit to stay the course. One, two or three, you are guaranteed to leave these workshops with an entire new world of guitar playing to explore.

On the first Saturday of each month, I'll be doing a group workshop for up to 10 students on Skype.You can expect to learn a great guitar tune and while doing so cover topics ranging from chords, harmony, rhythm, improvisation and fingerpicking to performance technique, practise methods, reading, tricks and riffs, arranging and composing.

Wherever you may be on the planet, if you're a guitar nut and want to learn more don't miss your Saturday Workshop.
