Shakey Graves Heads to Cape Town and Joburg This Easter

By Press Release / News / Monday, 10 February 2020 08:16

Award-winning Americana musician, Shakey Graves heads to South Africa for the first time this April and is set to perform at the inaugural Cape Open Air Festival in Cape Town on Good Friday - April 10th, and in Johannesburg at the Rivonia Barnyard Theatre on Easter Monday - April 13th.
Austin-based Shakey Graves first garnered attention with his one-man band set up, which originated after he grew tired of having to borrow kick drums and high hats in order to perform. His solution consisted of a modified suitcase that functions as both a kick drum and a tambourine stand built by a close friend. Most of his 2011 self-released debut album Roll the Bones features him playing solo.

His unique style of performance led to him being asked to be the official “busker” for the Edward Sharpe and Mumford & Sons' Railroad Revival Tour in 2011, where he played music for patrons entering each venue.
By 2014 Graves had his trio band set up and made their TV debut on “Conan”, along with performances on the “Late Show with David Letterman” and “Late Night with Seth Meyers”.
Graves won the Best Emerging Artist award at the 2015 Americana Music Awards and has since released two albums and an EP, including 2018’s “Can’t Wake Up” album.
Cape Town is treated to a brand-new festival as Shakey Graves headlines the first-ever Cape Open Air Festival on Good Friday, April 10th. The festival will take place at Muizenberg Park with more artists to be announced.
In Johannesburg, Shakey Graves will be joined by Australian duo Pierce Brothers and Shadowclub front man, Jacques Moolman - who’ll be performing a solo set - at the Barnyard Theatre in Rivonia on Easter Monday, 13 April.
