During these difficult times as the world fights to contain the coronavirus, the challenge has been adapting to new ways of doing things. Most artists seem to be slowly but surely finding their feet and keeping us entertained as well as informed!


Godfrey Johnson (GJ) had a brief chat with singer/ song writer Petronel Baard (PB) and below is how that conversation went....

GJ: How are you spending your time?

PB: I am trying to be productive by focussing on my on-line presence. We launched www.petronelbaard.com yesterday. Most of my music of 21 years is featured there and there's a page dedicated to live feeds via the Internet as well. I am lucky to have had help with that as I am strictly BC - Before Computers.

GJ: Do you have any advice for other artists?

PB: We must realize our value in this time and unite in our efforts to uplift people. For many years the more sensitive arts have gone unnoticed to a large extend and this is the time to direct people to that. Music and arts are good for the soul. If ever there was a time for radio stations and TV to serve all arts and thus humanity, it is now.

GJ: What are your plans for the future?

PB: In the light of all of the above I need to figure out how to implement myself - and others - when and if live shows become a bigger problem. I am releasing a new music video on the 12th of April and am busy with arrangements of my brother, Danie Baard's poetry. It is uncertain times. I hope and pray that only good comes out of all this pain.
