Guitar maestro performs at Moyo, Zoo Lake

ZOO LAKE - WITH sell-out performances in the US, UK, Australia, France, Brazil, Italy and all over southern Africa, Guy Buttery is Africa’s biggest acoustic music export.

His debut album in 2002, When I Grow Up… was nominated for Best Instrumental and Best Newcomer at the South African Music Awards (Sama) making him the youngest nominee in the history of the event.

He then went onto to win a Sama in 2010 for his album Fox Hill Lane and again this year for his first live concert recording, Live in KwaZulu.

He has also received other major national accolades including the the Standard Bank Golden Ovation Award in 2010, 2012 and again, in 2014 with Gareth Gale for his performances at the National Arts Festival in South Africa.

Guy was then invited to perform with the 52-piece KZN Philharmonic Orchestra, dubbed Africa’s greatest ensemble and was also voted Top Live Show of the year by the Cape Times.

Apart from local achievements, Buttery’s worldwide scope and recognition rose after the release of his award-winning album Fox Hill Lane with invitations to perform all over the globe.

He was also invited to perform at the Samas where he was broadcast to an audience of over 4 million in one of the country’s most watched televised events.

Guy then joined world-renowned guitar legends Preston Reed and Jon Gomm for a series of concerts with the touring International Guitar Night.

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