Blues-legend, world-class guitarist, unrivalled instrumentalist – Dan Patlansky has many monikers and these are just a few of them. But, this winter, audiences in the Western Cape will get to experience Dan’s staggering brilliance in person, and they’ll get to see exactly why the man is called a legend at the tender age of 31.
Dan will be kicking off his mini-tour of the Western Cape tomorrow at the Bordinghuisteater, Wellington. From there, Dan will move on to Hermanus, Houtbay, Durbanville, Stellenbosch, and Inner Cape Town and ending in Noordhoek on Sunday 22 July.
“Cape Town is always incredible – I can’t wait to get on the road with the band and spend some time with fans in the Mother City,” Patlansky said.
Dan Patlansky has become one of the busiest and most respected blues artists to ever come out of South Africa. His music can best be described as vacillating between slick, soulful blues and the renegade psychedelic angst and raw emotion of Hendrix and Zeppelin – fire encased in ice…if you will.
To achieve legend-status as a Blues-musician at the age of 30 is almost unheard of and what Dan Patlansky can do with a six-string Fender Stratocaster at the age of 30, most critically acclaimed guitarists will never quite achieve in a lifetime. His fans know this all too well, but to see him in person, is an experience no one will ever forget.
Tickets are on sale now, so fans should book early to avoid disappointment.
Dan’s latest album 20 Stones, is also currently available at music outlets across the country.
