On Saturday, market goers can enjoy the compelling tunes of South African guitar legend Steve Newman.

His remarkable skills on the guitar and infallible fusion of eclectic sounds, Newman’s performance on the Bay Harbour Sound Stage is not to be missed.
Playne Jane is a concept of singer/songwriter Michelle Coetzee and presents a soothing blend of folk, rock and acoustic music on Sunday. Born in Johannesburg, Michelle started playing the guitar at the age of fifteen and began writing songs from the age of sixteen. Michelle lends her writing style to the folk-rock genre with a definite Celtic influence. Inspired by many nineties bands like The Cranberries, Nirvana, Sheryl Crow, Tracy Chapman and many others Michelle has a very folky edge to her music. Michelle also draws inspiration from some world music artists like Loreena Mckennit and Enya.
