(Guy Buttery & Gareth Gale)

Multiple-award winning guitar virtuoso, Guy Buttery returns home to Durban for two concerts this week performing with Gareth Gale at the Durban Life Saving Club on Friday (October 9) and Open Strings in Kloof on Sunday (October 11).

At the age of 30, Guy has achieved what most musicians accomplish in a lifetime. This year, Guy Buttery brings a brand new show featuring drummer/percussionist extraordinaire, Gareth Gale. With sell-out performances in the US, the UK, Australia, Brazil, France, Italy, and all over Southern Africa, Guy Buttery is Africa’s biggest acoustic music export. Described as a “national treasure” by the Mercury, Guy has two South African Music Awards (SAMA’s) under his belt and four Standard Bank Ovation Awards.

Gareth Gale’s extraordinary work as one of South Africa’s leading percussionists has taken him to premier arts destinations around the world.

Performances will take place as follows:

October 9 at 18h30: Durban Life Saving Club, Lower Marine Parade, Durban. Tickets R100 booked on 072 477 2896.

October 11 at 13h00: Open Strings, 16 Jameson Terrace, Kloof. Tickets R100 booked on 082 653 3948

The Guy Buttery / Gareth Gale concert is made possible by the Concerts SA Mobility Fund - a funding mechanism which offers opportunities for South African musicians to undertake live music tours, administered by Concerts SA, a joint South African/Norwegian project.
