Seen as the precursor to the full-fledged international guitar festival 2018, the first ever Knysna International Guitar Night taking place at the Montessori School in Knysna on the 31st March features the extraordinary percussive guitarist Thomas Leeb who is Austrian but now hails from California USA. Doubling up the acoustic guitar-power quotient on the night is South Africa's own, Tony Cox, making this an absolutely not to be missed, humdinger of a guitar-slinging show, the likes of which have probably not been seen in this region before.

Thomas Leeb played his first solo concert at the age of fifteen and released his first acoustic guitar album at seventeen. Leeb is a frequent performer at concerts and festivals in Asia, the Americas and Europe and has been featured in numerous guitar magazines all over the world. Every year, he teaches workshops and master classes in universities and colleges and his album “Desert Pirate” was voted one of the essential albums of the last twenty years by Acoustic Guitar Magazine.

Thomas's peculiar guitar style owes as much to percussive techniques as traditional

fingerstyle guitar. What sets Thomas Leeb apart from some of his contemporaries is his

ability to make pyrotechnics serve the music. Three years studying West African traditional

music give him a sense of timing and groove that is unusual in a guitarist. All this has

earned him a loyal world-wide following.

Tony Cox should not need much introduction to South African audiences. This multiple award-winning guitar player is about to release a critically acclaimed vocal album titled Enormous Flowers that has seen the home-grown acoustic guitar legend reach a whole other audience. He will be mixing it up on the night with songs from the new album and his trade-mark, jaw-dropping guitar playing.
