By Press Release / News / Thursday, 30 May 2019 15:44

Kicking off 2019 with concerts throughout the USA and Brazil, multi-award winning artist Guy Buttery recently returned home for a recent fully-fledged solo tour of South Africa. Guy continues his run of shows with two upcoming solo concerts in Gauteng in both Johannesburg and Pretoria.

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.

After numerous recent collaborations with The Odeion String Quartet, The Eastern Cape Philharmonic Orchestra, The Guy Buttery Trio and extensive touring of his World Music duo with an Indian sitar player, Kanada Narahari, Guy, returns with a show for what he is known best for. The solo concert.

Last year Guy received the highest accolade for a musician in South Africa and was awarded the Standard Bank Young Artist Award. In almost 4 decades of honouring artists throughout the country, this was the first time since its inception that the award was presented to a musician outside of the classical music realm. Guy Buttery’s debut album in 2002, "When I Grow Up..." was nominated for ‘Best Instrumental’ and ‘Best Newcomer’ at the South African Music Awards (SAMA’s) making him the youngest nominee in the history of the event. He then went on to win a SAMA in 2010, for his album “Fox Hill Lane” and again in 2014, for his first live concert recording, “Live in KwaZulu”. He has also received other major National accolades including The Ovation Award in 2010, 2012 and again 2014 for his performances at the National Arts Festival. Guy was then invited to perform his works with the 52-piece KZN Philharmonic Orchestra, as well as with the Eastern Cape Philharmonic and had his solo performances voted the “Top Live Show” by The Cape Times. The media cited him “as one of South Africa’s finest exponents of the acoustic guitar.”

Expect high dynamics, ethereal fingerpicking, delicate African inflexions and mind-bending guitar playing of an entirely new order from Guy Buttery.

“…one of South Africa’s most influential artists over the past decade." – The Saturday Independent

“A contrast of genres dance together in intricate and entirely unpredictable patterns of tempo and rhythm. An audible tapestry of a united South Africa” – The Sunday Times

"Buttery is a god on the fretboard. A guitar master who proves once again that he doesn’t push boundaries; he simply vaults over them and goes for a stroll in the musical unknown." – Cue Magazine
