Top SA artists at The Cape Town Folk and Acoustic Music Festival

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.

All acoustic

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.
