Music lovers will be excited to hear that Jesse Clegg, well known alternative rock artist and international performer, will be strutting his stuff at an intimate concert on the terrace at Avontuur Estate, off the R44 between Stellenbosch and Somerset West on Tuesday, 28 April from 19h00.
“After the success of the Andrew Young concert in March, we realised there is a need for smaller scenic venues like that at Avontuur, where music lovers can get up close and personal with their favourite artists, whilst enjoying classy food and wine,” says Avontuur owner, Michael Taberer. “Although we are always aware of the need not to upset our farming activities which are at the heart of Avontuur, we like to offer something new every now and again and this is one of those opportunities which we believe we can manage comfortably and ensure an excellent experience for visitors,” he continues.
Jesse, who’s 2008 debut album, When I Wake Up, and his 2011 follow up, Life On Mars made the 25-year-old a platinum-selling success in South Africa, also regularly performs internationally.
Descending from a musical family, Jesse spent the first six years of his life on tour with his father, iconic South African singer Johnny Clegg.
Jesse has achieved much in the 5 short years he has been active. He has released 4 Top 10 singles and toured extensively throughout South Africa, playing the biggest festivals in the country. As an official ambassador for the Nelson Mandela 46664 foundation, Jesse has been invited to play at Radio City Music Hall in New York for the annual Mandela Day Concert. He has been nominated for three South African Music Awards over the course of his career.
