On the 7th and 8th August 2015, a host of top South African artists will perform completely acoustically in an intimate, concert-style setting.This is the 8th instalment and as per normal, the evening is set to be an experience of the finest musical storytelling from the personal journeys of some of South Africa`s best songwriters and musicians.

Take – Folk, Bluegrass, Celtic Music, Cape Jazz and a Swamp of Blues… then throw in a few guitars, a piano, violin, banjo, ukulele, cello, piano accordion, steel pan, blues harp and voices from the heavens – all played by some of South Africa’s finest in these genres – and you have the Cape Town Folk n Acoustic Music Festival.
