Guy Buttery - The Gathering Fiction Tour

Nieu Bethesda

Guy Buttery performs in Nieu-Bethesda on Friday, 27th February at the Karoo Lamb Restaurant. The performance starts at 18:30. The cost is R100 and R20 is donated to Union Prep Library Fund. Kids pay half price or less. Contact us to book.

Four different continents, performances in more than twelve countries, and a second South African Music Award – that’s how one of South Africa’s hardest working musicians spent his 2014.

Guy Buttery has propelled his career far beyond the borders of his beloved South Africa. As an internationally recognized 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 brand Guy Buttery as one of South Africa’s musical phenoms would be an injustice. He has grown into so much more. His international role has surpassed merely playing shows to foreign audiences. It has evolved into one as an ambassador of South African music, inspiring people across the world with our homegrown style at the very heart of his talent and tenacity. Guy Buttery is our musical advocate for everything positive and beautiful about the place we call home.
