I love summer sunset concerts, and I especially like the ones out in the rambling winelands, where the place is a little slower than it is in the big city.
One particular series of concerts I am very much looking forward to is the Solms-Delta Summer Concert Series, which kicked off last weekend at the Franschhoek-based estate.
Here’s what’s on the cards, according to organisers:
Enjoy a feast of rural Cape food, music and dance each Saturday evening from 14 January to 10 March 2012. Enjoy our wine, a hearty Fyndraai Kaapse Braai Buffet and the best live music you could hope to hear in this magical setting.
Listen to the Solms-Delta Music van de Caab’s homegrown bands and the Delta Soetstemme and Delta Valley Entertainers perform alongside some of South Africa’s favourites, such as much loved Hannes Coetzee, Les Javan, Hot Water, Tribal Echo, House of Davids, Kaapse Affodille and Pieter van der Westhuizen.
Summer Concerts 2012 – Line-up
Don’t know about you, but I’m thinking… day out in the winelands, checking out a bunch of food markets in the area, followed by a picnic and concert at Solms-Delta sounds like a pretty good way to spend some downtime.
Yep, definitely sold on that one.
