Come and experience something quite unique - The Cape Town Folk ‘n Acoustic Music Festival. The festival, which will be heldo on 10 December at CTICC, Cape Town, 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.
Says Just Jinger front man, Ard Matthews: "“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?” Other acts include 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. Tickets are R180-00 on www.webtickets.co.za or R200-00 at the door. R5 of every ticket sold will be donated to the Cape of Good Hope SPCA.
