Having shared the stage together for more than 15 years now, the opportunity of catching Nibs van der Spuy and Guy Buttery performing as a duo in South Africa has become increasingly rare these days. With their demanding schedules as solo artists and with Nibs being based 6 months of the year in Portugal, the duo only manages a handful of shows together a year, if any at all.

It has now been two years since their last show, but Guy and Nibs are happy to announce that they will be playing a rare one-off concert at the Conscious Cafe at the Castle on June 21, 2019, in Hillcrest.

Nibs and Guy have toured many major festivals and venues throughout Europe and the UK in promotion of their SAMA nominated album, In the Shade of the Wild Fig. The duo has also won the very prestigious Standard Bank Ovation Award at The National Arts Festival.

These accolades led to further sold-out performances at numerous festivals and concert halls in both South Africa and in Europe receiving rave reviews for both their live show and recorded works. Van der Spuy and Buttery were then invited to perform with the 52 piece KZN Philharmonic Orchestra, dubbed “Africa’s greatest orchestra” and were later voted “Top Live Show of the Year” by The Cape Times.

They will perform at 19h30 on June 21, 2019, at the Conscious Cafe @ the Castle, 24B Main Road, Hillcrest, KZN. Entrance R150 pp. Dinner will available. Contact or 072 869 3937.
