Incredible Local Talent At Bay Harbour Market

Written by

Head to the Bay Harbour Market this weekend and treat yourself to the sounds of Stefan Dixon, Peter Wyness and acoustic blues duo The Room.

Hitting the Brampton Sound Stage on September 7 for Friday Nite LIVE!, is experienced South African singer-songwriter Stefan Dixon. Stefan performs acoustic, melodic rock and draws his influence from the likes of SA musical icons Vusi Mahlasela and Johnny Clegg. He also draws inspiration from nature, and the curses that humans have afflicted upon it. His songs are highly emotive and thought-provoking. You don't want to miss this performance!

Entertaining Bay Harbour audiences on Saturday September 8 is 'one man band' Peter Wyness. Peter worked the hotel circuit for many years specialising in more intricate folk vocal and guitar styles while also crossing over to blues and light jazz influences. He is the only one man band of his kind in South Africa providing a fresh approach to the term 'unplugged'. Peter plays everything from the guitar and blues harp to brush peddle drums and finger maracas!

Ending the weekend off on Sunday September 9 is acoustic guitar duo The Room. Matt Murdoch and James Middleton hail from a blues background which has them listening to and covering artists like Muddy Waters, Eric Clapton and Dire Straits, but both are also passionate songwriters and the majority of the songs in their set are originals. Their style varies from soft, melodic songs to driving, powerful numbers that leave both band members heaving after the final note.

In addition to awesome live music, arts, crafts, fashion, decor and delicious cuisine, Bay Harbour is also hosting a monthly comedy showcase on the first Wednesday of each month. The line-up for the 5th September 2012 features Martin Davis (UK) hosting support acts Carl Weber and Anne Hirsch and the headliner is one of Cape Town's best established comedians – Stuart Taylor. Tickets are on sale now online at www.quicket.co.za – the inaugural show was sold out, so make sure you get your tickets early!
