Here’s a quick message from Dan to his Cape Town Fans:
Dan Patlansky gives us some Insight into the new Album ‘Introvertigo’:
Another great addition to this year`s line up is Crimson House. Grassroots, soul lifting, foot-stomping, heartmoving audio candy, built on a brotherhood that will outlive the timelessness of music they create. The music will take you back a century and right into the modern age within the same bar-line. Rooted in blues, coated in gypsy undertones, blended with early Jazz fuelled by roaring guitars, blazing Brass, sensational saxophones, shredding Banjos, & soul sweeping Harmonica’s, lead by a gravel paved voice coming out of a hard worked soul.
Needing no introduction, the line up also includes the Gerald Clark Trio, The Blues Broers and Mark Hazeamong others. Don’t miss out on one of the best live concerts of the year!
On choosing artists for the festival, organiser Richard Pryor says: “A festival is much like a recipe that promises a wonderful meal. So when putting a Festival like this together I will always add fresh Veggies to the ‘Meat and Potatoes’ then season copiously with salt and spices and cook slowly until the final meal is the sum of all those good ingredients. This Blues Rock potjie is interesting, tasty, with deep flavours that last longer and it’s a meal that will nourish the body and soul. Come get yourself more than a plateful on the 9th of April.”
