With multiple concert tours already under his belt in the first half of 2017, Guy Buttery has returned to KZN and will be doing a one off show at PheZulu Safari Park in Botha’s Hill.
After a highly successful three part nationwide tour featuring Shane Cooper and another tour with long time collaborator Nibs van der Spuy, Buttery went on to work with internationally acclaimed virtusos, Thomas Leeb and American-guitar extraordinaire Kaki King. King and Buttery collaborated at Lush Festival main stage last month, leaving audiences spellbound.
As an internationally recognized musician, Guy Buttery enjoys invitations to play sell-out performances all over the globe. The USA, UK, Australia, France, Brazil, and Italy have all welcomed him back year after year. However, to simply label Guy Buttery as one of South Africa’s musical phenoms would be an injustice. His international role has surpassed merely performing concerts to foreign audiences. It has evolved into one as an ambassador of South African music, inspiring people across the world with his homegrown style at the very heart of his talent and tenacity. Guy’s distinct unification of South African guitar music is the musical advocate for everything positive and beautiful about the place he calls home.
Buttery has also worked with an incredible myriad of artists including Dave Matthews, Jethro Tull, Vusi Mahlasela, multiple Grammy Award winner Will Ackerman, Salif Keita, Preston Reed, The Violent Femmes, Jon Gomm and countless others. HavinThe media has cited him “as one of the finest exponents of the acoustic guitar in the World.” As a farewell of sorts before leaving to tour Thailand and New Zealand for a few months, Guy is performing for one night only at the beautiful PheZulu Safari Park. Guy’s sunset performance will be accompanied by food and drinks provided by the venue. Expect high dynamics, deep grooves, delicate African inflections and mind-bending guitar playing of an entirely new order.
