2011-12-02 15:53
Real Wired Music, the creators of Vintage Sundays and the Cape Town for Haiti Concert, in association with Eastern Acoustics, bring you another live music experience. Together with Sedgwick’s Old Brown Sherry and Marshall Music, the Cape Town Folk 'n Acoustic Music Festival will bring together 18 top South African artists of this genre in a sophisticated, concert-style setting, with solo or duo sets performed completely acoustically. Performances will be stripped down to the essence of the songs – guitar and voice. The evening is set to be an experience of the finest musical storytelling from the personal journeys of some of South Africa’s best songwriters and musicians.

The 18 South African artists that will play at the festival include: 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, Jack Mantis.

Ard Matthew has expressed his excitement about the fest saying: "I am honoured to be part of the first Cape Town Folk ‘n Acoustic Festival. It is my sincere hope that it will be well-supported so that it may become a real highlight on the SA music calendar. SA has such phenomenal talent; all we need now is a place to showcase it. What better place/event than this?"

Tickets are R180-00 from webtickets or R200-00 at the door.
The first 300 seats booked will receive a gift bag courtesy of Sedgwick’s Old Brown Sherry!

R5 of every ticket sold will be donated to the Cape of Good Hope SPCA.

Please bring along a fluffy toy - the toys will be delivered to the children at The Warehouse, Child Welfare and Al Noor Orphanage before Christmas.

The Cape Town Folk ‘n Acoustic Music Festivaltakes place on Saturday 10 December at CTICC, in Cape Town.
