World renowned guitar legend Guy Buttery will be making a brief stop in Vancouver for one show only in support of the release of his first live album en route to the USA. For over a decade, the South African Music Award winning musician has sealed the deal with fans around the globe with his idiosyncratic and powerful live shows. This year the artist described as a “one man guitar orchestra” presents a live performance on CD and begins to promote the album. ‘Live in KwaZulu’ is a gathering of masterworks set before a live audience and strongly reaffirms Guy Buttery’s unique place in the world of guitar heroes today.

With sell-out performances in the US, the UK, Australia, France, Italy and all over Southern Africa, Guy is Africa‟s biggest acoustic music export. In 2012, Buttery was invited to perform with the 52 piece KZN Philharmonic Orchestra, dubbed “Africa‟s greatest orchestra” and was also voted “Top Live Show” in 2012 by The Cape Times. In July 2013, Guy was invited to join world renowned guitar legendsPreston Reed and Jon Gomm for a series of concerts with the touring International Guitar Night. The media cited him “as one of South Africa‟s finest exponents of the acoustic guitar."
