Guy Buttery announces two shows in Gauteng this month

After what was a jam packed 2023 with concert tours throughout North America, Asia and Southern Africa, Guy Buttery finally returns to Gauteng for two special performances this month. “Guy Buttery is something of a National treasure”, says South Africa’s leading newspaper. As an internationally recognised musician, this multi-instrumentalist 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.

Guy’s first performance in Gauteng will be at the Wits Chris Seabrookes Music Hall in Johannesburg and will feature special guest Shane Cooper on bass and synthesizer. Cooper is a jazz bassist, composer and producer based in Johannesburg, South Africa. Shane was also selected as the Standard Bank Young Artist for Jazz and was one of the Mail & Guardian’s 200 Young South Africans. Buttery’s final performance in Gauteng will be at Asylum Studios in Pretoria and will include guest artist Paul Gioia on classical guitar who has performed and recorded with the likes The Narrow, ATFN and Madala Kunene. 

Expect high dynamics, deep grooves, delicate African inflections and mind-bending guitar playing of an entirely new order.
