Music, nature and the chance to experience country life: The Silver Mountain Music Festival is a glorious winter weekend of fun, entertainment and culture.
The festival brings some of South Africa’s most prominent musicians to this secretive – yet lush – valley, in the Overberg region in the Western Cape. It is organised by well-known musician and conductor, Richard Cock, and a host of partners (including the Grootvadersbosch Conservancy).
And this year, the line-up includes wonderful artists such as:
Classical marimbist Magdalena de Vries
Percussionist Bryan Clarke
Junayn Baatjies and the Heidelberg Empower Drumming Academy
Lungiswa Plaatjies and Ancient Voices
Violinist Pieter Joubert
Music therapist Renée van den Berg
Cellist Ashlin Grobbelaar and many more
