Johannesburg-born singer songwriter Werner Bekker has been playing his hometown circuit for the last five years. With mounds of experience, a flurry of fans and an extensive repertoire, Werner Bekker has just come back from playing some of SA’s top music festivals, including Splashy Fen, Mieliepop Festival, Lush Festival, Free State Folk Festival and more.
Still early in the year, but certainly no time to waste, the talented guitarist has decided it’s time he travelled down South to share his fine folk tunings with the people of the Cape.
Werner says, “Cape town is one of SA’s great creative hubs and I’ve been wanting to tour there for a while. I haven’t been to the Cape in over a year so it’s about time.”
A mini-tour for now – as Werner will introduce his sound to an eager audience, already raring to go – the inspiring vocalist has already secured slots at top venues across the city and is looking forward to sold-out shows all round.
Excited to see some old friends, while making some new ones, Werner is looking forward to promioting his new single in the Mother City.
He adds, “I recently met a band called The Stone Jets, who are from Cape town, and their music really made me want to see the stunning people , musicians and scenery again. So excited to jam there for the first time.”
