Sing The Blues To The Sound Of Four Top Acts
Top local blues, folk and rock musicians take to the stage at a festival in Stanford
Lush wine farm scenery, a fresh sea breeze and a stage set for blues, folk and rock ‘n’ roll. That’s how you transition from high stress to end-of-year relaxation. Unwind at Stanford Hills Estate when it hosts the second edition of the Blues, Rock & Roots Festival on 27 December.
BITTERBALLEN AND ROCKSTARS
Grab a picnic blanket for an outdoor music festival that will take you to the roots of rock ‘n’ roll. The Blues, Rock & Roots Festival brings together top local acts to one stage. This year it has the likes of Black Cat Bones, Gerald Clarke (back from the Czech Republic), Matt Carstens (no relation to Arno) and Albert Frost (who'll be the MC for the day).
There will also be a selection of food and drinks stalls if your belly starts rumbling to the music. You can grab anything from a schwarma to bitterballen from Dutchies as well as traditional German sausage. You can also grab wine or cocktails from the bar plus the Tasting Room Restaurant on the premises will be open until 7pm. Call +27 (0)72 639 6135 or email email@example.com to make a reservation.
