BIO

Pietman Geldenhuys
 
Pietman Geldenhuys is gebore in Prince Alfred’s Hamlet in die Boland. Van kleins af stel hy belang in musiek en vermaak. Hy het op 6-jarige ouderdom vir die eerste keer as solis in die kerk gesing.  Na hy sy Hoërskool opleiding voltooi het aan Boland Landbou, het hy Engeland gaan verken vir bykans 3 en ‘n half jaar.  Daar het hy onder andere as trekkerdrywer, verkoopsman, kelner, en straatmusikant sy brood verdien. Nadat hy op juis so straathoek raakgesien is deur ‘n plaaslike musikant, wat hom toe genooi het om saam met hom op te tree, het hy begin floreer as musikant in sy eie reg. Hy het vir byna ‘n jaar en ‘n half voltyds in kroeë, restaurante en al wat watergat is opgetree regoor Engeland.
 
Toe sy visum uiteindelik verval en hy moes terugkeer huistoe, het hy sy passie verder kom uitleef deur aan City Varsity te studeer as omroeper en akteur vir beide televisie en die verhoog. Tussendeur sy opleiding het hy aanhou musiek maak by verskeie geleenthede en funksies. Hy ontwikkel sy alter ego, die Skotsman as deel van sy repertoire. By een só funksie word hy raakgesien deur die rocker Valiant Swart wat hom toe saamnooi om met sy groep te toer. In hierdie tyd ontmoet hy vir Ollie Viljoen saam met wie hy vir etlike jare daarna sou optree in sy verskeie gedaantes onder andere as Skotsman, musikant en storieverteller.
 
Hy skryf liedjies vir onder andere Bok van Blerk, Ricus Nel, Hugo, Andries Vermeulen en Wicus van der Merwe.  Hy hou graag sy lyf akteur in enige iets van films, soos “Die rebellie van Lafras Verwey” en tot verhoogstukke soos “Renier Grootlieg De Winnar” saam met Chris van Niekerk.
 
Pietman was deur die jare nouliks betrokke by verskeie produksies wat wissel van optredes by ‘Afrikaans is Groot’ tot “Oppiekopp”’, “Noot vir Noot” tot “Musiek Roulette”. Hy is ook dikwels te sien in die produksie “Die Boer en Skot”’ saam met Bok van Blerk en Ricus Nel.
 
Meer onlangs het Pietman en Andries Vermeulen saam met André Calitz van Blixem Productions gespan vir die maak van die TV reeks ”Oppiestoep” waarvan hy een van die aanbieders is.
 
Hy het groot aanhang verwerf met die skotse lied “Flower of Scotland” op die televisie program “Toks ‘n Tjops” en die lied is ook opgeneem op sy album ‘Hamlet by Night’.  Sy nuutste album ‘YOU AND I’ asook die storiealbum “Die ding van ‘n storie”  is in 2017 vrygestel.
