Guy Buttery is to perform at Claremont Farm, Salt Rock, KZN, on January 24.

"Guy Buttery's goal is to stretch the boundaries of fingerstyle guitar to their outermost limits. ...the most diverse and intriguing fingerstyle album in recent memory." (Guitar Player Magazine- USA's leading Guitar Magazine)

One of South Africa's finest acoustic guitarists, Guy Buttery, has returned home after an extensive six week tour of the UK and Europe as well as an exclusive performance for the Prince of Bahrain. Guy was invited to perform at numerous prestigious festivals throughout 2008, representing South Africa in no less than five different countries. He also had the honour of playing alongside some of the world's greatest guitarists including the likes of Martin Simpson, Bob Brozman, Gordon Giltrap, Adrian Legg, Pierre Bensusan and many more. Buttery said "The tour was a huge success! It was really awesome to play with some of my heroes, but it's always good to be back on African soil and I'm really looking forward to playing to my favourite audience again."

Guy Buttery has embarked on a journey that will no doubt lead to his success as an internationally respected solo artist. With the doors opening up for him in Europe and the UK, it is no surprise that Guy has numerous international tours lined up for 2009 which will coincide with the release of his third and much anticipated album.

The performance will take place on January 24 at 19h30 with dinner served from 18h30. This will be an intimate night of music and great food. Vagabond Café is nestled away on the beautiful Claremont Farm, opposite the entrance to Brettenwood Estate in Salt Rock. Tickets R40 (excluding drinks and dinner) will be sold at the door. CD's on sale!
