“Guy Buttery is something of a National treasure”, says South Africa’s leading newspaper The Mercury. An institution at the festival as well as being internationally recognized acoustic guitar player, Guy Buttery enjoys invitations to play sell-out performances all over the globe. However, to simply label him as one of South Africa’s musical phenoms would be an injustice. His international role has evolved into one as an ambassador of South African music, inspiring people across the world with his homegrown style at the very heart of his talent and tenacity. Guy’s distinct unification of South African guitar music is the musical advocate for everything positive and beautiful about the place he calls home.
