TABLE MOUNTAIN BLUES SUMMIT 2014 – 6 & 7 December, Hillcrest Quarry, Durbanville.

“The blues is not something you choose to play. It’s a bit like falling in love. It just happens, because it feels so right.” Rob Nagel. The Blues Broers.

“It’s hard to describe what blues really is, but at its core its a feeling waiting to come out. Its a genre that can be played simply, or complex, all that really matters is that its played with soul.” Riaan Smit, Crimson House.

South Africa’s Premier Blues Music Festival returns to Hillcrest Quarry in Durbanville, Cape Town on the 6th and 7th of December 2014. Hosting 20 of the country’s top Blues Rock Artists over 2 days, the 2014 concert is proudly presented and brought to you by local main sponsor COMBUSTION TECHNOLOGY and also with great sponsor support by PAUL BOTHNER MUSIC and FENDER SA.

So friends and fans, all you need is a ticket and them’ blue suede shoes (whether real or imaginary) to come and enjoy the finest music making by some of South Africa`s finest Blues Musicians.Continue Reading …
