2015 sees the 8th installment of the Cape Town Folk n Acoustic Music Festival return to the Baxter Theatre. An array of top South African artists will perform songs completely acoustically in an intimate, concert-style setting. Some of South Africa’s best songwriters and musicians will share their personal journeys via musical storytelling.
Combine Folk, Bluegrass, Celtic Music, Cape Jazz and a Swamp of Blues with a touch of guitar, a piano, violin, banjo, ukulele, cello, piano accordion, steel pan, blues harp and voices from the heavens – all played by some of South Africa’s finest in these genres – and you have the Cape Town Folk n Acoustic Music Festival.
Gavin Minter, organiser, says, “Over the last 7 Folk n Acoustic events we have showcased 118 artists and bands, involving approximately 150 musicians. For this next concert we have decided to not repeat any of the artists from the past 7 concerts. We want to keep it fresh! We are honoured to have David Kramer on the line up. We are also excited about having new talented artists like Fruit Vendor and Chris Werge sharing a stage with legends like Valiant Swart, Tony Cedras and Roger Lucey.
