Plumsong is a vocal duo that covers an array of styles from Broadway hits, to swing, pop and blues. Formed in 2011 by Sharyn Seidel and her daughter, Dara Beth, Plumsong has blossomed into a shared love for the play between harmonies, crossover medleys and synchronized dance routines and has become an inimitable vocal force. Perhaps it’s the familial touch or just the right match of creativity but Sharyn and Dara’s blend of voices creates the perfect sound for any occasion. No event is too small or too big for the love that Plumsong brings to the stage.
In 2017, Plumsong took that love and passion and turned it into a full-scale theatre production. Just a Song and a Dance took the “average” Plumsong experience of a background gig and opened the secret behind-the-scenes life of performing to the audience through song, dance, banter and a little bit of arguing. Staged at the Alexander Bar in Cape Town and the National Arts Festival in Makhanda, “Just a Song and a Dance” received standing ovations from sold-out houses. To wrap up the year, the production received a nomination for “Best New Production” from Broadway World South Africa.
Plumsong has performed at venues such as the V&A FoodMarket, Royal Cape Yacht Club, Pastis Brasserie and many more.
