All Things Entertainment in association with The Project Room South Africa, is very proud to announce the award winning alt folk guitarist, Guyy, will be heading to South Africa this September accompanied by violinist extraordinaire, Amelia Gibsonzu as part of the Guyy + The Fox United Tour.
Guyy and The Fox will be performing at the White Mountain Festival alongside the cream of South African and other international acoustic artists.
Nominated for several awards including 2 ARIA’s, (Best Independent Release, Best Blues and RootsArtist) Guyy was crowned Australian Nation Busking Champion2013 and won the 2013 ACT Best Blues, Roots & World artist. He plays tribute to Pink Floyd ingenuity with a personal taste for Australian roots & folk and uses his music as a creative vehicle for connecting with people which he has a remarkable talent for. He has been sharing his journey nationwide throughout2013 and 2014 where he has performed solo or with accompanying musicians in festivals, markets, clubs, pubs and alleyways and anywhere he can get people to stop and listen and buy his independentEP. Guyy has a particular love of grass roots events where he can directly connect with people.
Says Guyy, “The South African tour is a dream come true. Playing the White Mountain Festival in the middle of the Drakensberg Mountain range with performances by top quality African, South African and international musicians will be an honour and a fantastic experience . Having spent the last few weeks researching the country and the music, my excitement levels are through the roof at this stage, I can’t wait to exploreJohannesburg, Cape Town, and the Drakensburg Mountains!”
Guyy will be joined on the United Tour by violinist Amelia Gibson (The Fox). Amelia, aged 19, brings on board 16 years of playing experience,blending her classical training and Celtic influences to produce afierce playing style, adding even more energy to Guyy’s already exciting performance. Amelia was classically trained from ages 3 to16 and was exposed to Celtic and folk music through her parent’s love of folk festivals and gradually the classical world and Celtic roots and folk influences started to blend together. Having worked in orchestras, quartets and as a session musician, Amelia brings an incredible amount of experience and talent to the act.
