Andrew Seymour, Matt Gardner and Pan Latino are set to delight music-lovers at Music in the Hills (MiTH) on Wednesday, July 5 at The Knoll Historic Guest Farm in Knoll Drive, Hilton.
The evening gets underway at 7pm with an open mic, before Seymour plays his brand of acoustic rock – mainly 60s and 90s stuff at the moment.
Gardner, a young musician born and bred in Pietermaritzburg, will be on stage at 8pm. He began playing guitar towards the end of his junior school years when he watched his father playing, and was eager to learn.
After taking part in musical productions at his school, Maritzburg College, he moved on to being one of the acts on the line-ups to open for the likes of Matthew Mole, Prime Circle, Desmond and the Tutus, Just Jinjer, Majozi and Plush.
Gardner describes his music as Indie Folk with a slight Rock undertone, with a few of his influences being Mumford and Sons, Matthew Mole and John Mayer.

The final act for the evening is Pan Latino, whose music is energetic and infectious to the ear and guaranteed to get you up and dancing.
Lead by Bolivian Kéch (Eufronio) Sánchez on vocals, guitar, pan pipes, flutes and charango, the band includes Abbo Hall on bass, holding down the grooving Latin bass lines, Daniël Rossouw on lead, rhythm guitar and Chris Melling on percussion.
Entry is R25 – bring your own booze. Food and soft drinks are available for sale.

Travel 5,2km along Hilton Avenue (past two sets of traffic lights and Old Main Brewery) and keep going straight as Hilton Avenue turns into Dennis Shepstone Drive. At the 5,2km mark, Knoll Drive will be on your right – the entrance to MiTH is the second entrance on your left into The Knoll Historic Guest Farm. (Dennis Shepstone Drive is currently under heavy construction – so please be very cautious.)
