Two of South Africa’s most talented singer-songwriters with multiple radio hits between the two of them, have decided to come together to create another magical sunset concert at a beautiful, scenic estate to celebrate the new year. This unique show will include Louise Carver and Ard Matthews` well-known hits plus some very special collaborations between the two of them.

The concert will take place at Stanford Hills Estate, Weltevreden Farm, Stanford, Hermanus on Wednesday January 2 2019.

Carver says that Stanford Hills Estate is one of her favorite outdoor venues to perform at. “My parents live in Hermanus and I am originally from the Cape, so it has that extra bit of nostalgia and connection for me. Playing all my hits whilst the sun sets over the Hemel en Aarde Valley is a beautiful way to start the year.”

Gates will open at 2.30pm and the show starts at 5pm to 7pm. There will be two 45 minute sets with 30 minutes interval in between.

Ticket prices are R185 for adults and R95 for children under 12. Tickets can be bought here.

Stanford Hills Estate, nestled in the Hemel en Aarde Valley, just outside Hermanus, is a very special place. With views of the mountains and valley, people can bring their camping chairs and blankets and chill out after the Christmas / New Year mania. There will be a gin and tonic bar, food trucks with a variety of options [vegetarian and vegan included] and Stanford Hill’s exceptional wine selection.

Please bring old blankets to sit on, as there will be an Animal Welfare collection point on the day for you to drop them off after the show. Louise will then deliver them to Animal welfare in Hermanus on the following day.

Louise Carver Collection jewellery will be available to purchase on the day, as well as signed CD’s from both Ard Matthews and Louise Carver.
