Top SA artists at The Cape Town Folk and Acoustic Music Festival
31 Oct 2011 14:23
Eighteen top South African artists will be performing at The Cape Town Folk and Acoustic Music Festival, which will be held at the CTICC, Cape Town, on Saturday, 10 December, 2011.
The artists are: Ard Matthews, Steve Newman, Farryl Purkiss, Rory Eliot, Brian Finch, Guy Buttery, Christine Weir and Julie Blundell, Janie Bay, Gavin Minter, Louise Day, Tombstone Pete, Andrew James and Steady Tiger, John Ellis, Diesel Vanilla, Machineri, Gary Thomas, Natasha Meister, and Jack Mantis.
The line up has a mix of great acoustic guitarists, like Steve Newman, Gary Thomas and Guy Buttery, with singer/songwriter stalwarts like Farryl Purkiss, Rory Eliot, Ard Matthews and Brian Finch. The look and feel of the festival will be in the style of a 1970s' folk concert - all artists will perform solo or duo sets completely acoustically. Performances will be stripped down to the essence of the songs - guitar and voice.
Add to all this some blues sounds from Natasha Meister and Machineri, and some folk/pop by Janie Bay, and the evening is set for an experience of musical storytelling taken from the personal journeys of some of South Africa`s finest songwriters and musicians.
The festival will consist of three sets with two half-hour breaks in-between. There will be a cash bar and food stalls in foyer.
Tickets are R180 at www.webtickets.co.za or R200 at the door. R5 per ticket will be donated to the SPCA.
Fluffy toy bins
The Cape Town Folk and Acoustic Music Festival would also like to contribute to a feel-good holiday season for all. There will be toy bins in the foyer. Please bring a fluffy toy along for the evening. The bins with toys will be delivered to children at our local hospice before Christmas.
