Durban Album Launch – “Fox Hill Lane”
The inimitable Guy Buttery starts a National tour hot on the heels of sessions at Peace of Eden’s recording studio in Knysna where he believes he has produced his best album yet. Fox Hill Lane is just off the press, literally, and makes its debut performance in his home town of Durban at the Elizabeth Sneddon Theatre. The evening kicks off at 7.30pm with tickets on sale at the door for R50.
The album features an eclectic collection of local and international musicians who have collaborated with Guy over the last few years and it falls nothing short of a relative masterpiece. Whilst the album could be fairly pigeon-holed as a beautifully crafted journey across an undulating landscape of fingerstyle guitar, it’s anything but derivative. Collaborators include Nibs van der Spuy, Dan Patlansky, Tony Cox, Piers Faccini, Madala Kunene, and Syd Kitchen.
At an astonishing age of 25, Guy has three acclaimed albums to his credit, three nominations at the SAMA awards, numerous successful international tours and an exponentially expanding fan base. Having featured on the Australia’s Big Day Out festival in 2008, the Acoustic Festival of Great Britain and New York’s Long Island Festival, all in the same year, it figures that Guy’s career is on the ascent.
A road show of performances across South Africa launches Fox Hill Lane in major centres during 2009. It’s an album to treasure and an essential element in any CD collection. Next year Guy returns to Europe, the UK and North America where fans are discovering his unusual style and his effervescent musical personality.
