The Folk Avant Garde Western Cape Tour
Miles Sievwright, Arlyn, Cabins in the Forest, Tristan Waterkyn, and Gary Thomas will be touring the Western Cape in November, creating mystery and myth wherever they go...
Of late, there seems to be something going on in SA folk. Nu-folk stalwarts Cabins in the Forest have finally released their debut album, Tristan Waterkeyn has started up music industry mega-site Overtone.co.za, and Magna Carta, bastions of the 70’s folk revival, toured SA twice in two years, with Arlyn in support.
Left-of-leftfield musician Righard Kapp has exchanged his trusty no-input mixing desk for an upside down acoustic guitar, and Miles Sievwright has emerged with a handful of truly revelatory arrangements.
That’s not to mention the exploits of Matthew Gair, Ella Joyce Buckley, Naming James, Deep Fried Man… Something is definitely afoot, and so we might as well say it: “Scene!”
So, what better thing to do than a small tour, with Miles Sievwright, Arlyn, Cabins in the Forest, Tristan Waterkyn, an d Gary Thomas?
Between 11 and 17 November, fans and discoverers of South African folk music will have the opportunity to witness – and create – something of cultural significance.
