Event to follow.

"As South Africa experiences a period of lighter restrictions Cape Town guitarist Derek Gripper will be testing the Level One waters with a series of small, socially distanced events in the Cape Town area, a dual commemoration of his last international concert tour in 2020 and one year of musical lockdown. Derek will play in private homes and in various intimate venues such as The Cottage Club. .

Derek’s last tour of Australia a year ago saw him play sixteen sold out concerts in as many towns and cities. He returned to the Mother City the week before lockdown and has since been running an online subscription service teaching group classes on African guitar. His students are located in South Africa and across the globe in the United States, Canada, Germany, Australia, China, Switzerland, France, the UK and more. His notable experiences include a solo concert at Carnegie Hall, multiple collaborations with classical guitar legend John Williams and classical Indian virtuoso Debashish Battacharya; a performance in Bamako with kora star Toumani Diabate and a a host of award winning albums including 2016’s Libraries on Fire which won the Songlines Music Award for Best African Album. Derek’s recent album A Year of Swimming had a million streams in its first few months of release, and his latest record with Silk Road Ensemble’s cellist Mike Block is set to follow suit.

“Five stars… Gripper has brilliantly transferred [the kora] repertoire onto a regular six string guitar. He sees [Toumani] Diabaté as the Segovia, or indeed John Williams, of the kora, championing it as a solo instrument. And Gripper brilliantly takes it back to the guitar. He’s opening a whole new repertoire of classical guitar music… bringing African guitar into the classical mainstream.”
— SIMON BROUGHTON

“Gripper has cracked it… his playing has a depthless beauty, which does full justice to the complexity of Toumani’s compositions. To do so without any hint of the music being dumbed down is a staggering achievement on solo guitar.”
— NIGEL WILLIAMSON, SONGLINES MAGAZINE

“A true synthesis and a great album.”
— IAN KEAREY, FROOTS"

Our Story.

{Scroll down to See Who Played here}

The Cottage Club, Founded by Cape Town Singer-Songwriter and Musical Activist, Bill Knight, is a Home-Based Live Music Venue dedicated to the Promotion and Showcasing of Local South-African Music, (Primarily Acoustic, Ballads, Folk, and Light Jazz ).

While our Emphasis is Primarily on Original Music, we also occasionally feature some Classical, Traditional Folk, Bluegrass and Blues - in acknowledgement of our Roots.

In many ways, this is “Voorkamer Music”. Musicians and Audiences alike, love the Warm, Intimate setting, where Performances are treated with respectful and enthusiastic attention. The Club is an important Forum for Musicians to Perform, Collaborate, and Network. It provides Patrons with an opportunity to experience the Musicians Up-Close and Personal, to hear the Stories behind the Songs, to celebrate a common passion, and to make lasting friendships with like-minded Music-Lovers.

What a lovely evening we had watching Qadasi - super talented and such a great venue! Qadasi Cottage Club- Original Folk Music and Performing Arts Venue. #livemusic #SAMusic #qadasi #cottageclubmusic
Some may call be biased, but others will know that I never say anything unless I mean it. I saw this show at The Alma Cafe and it is simply brilliant. Serious.
Hi Folk musos. I am a mean and tight cajon player looking to join to folk (or something related) band, duo, trio. Heres a clip of me playing with a fold duo in the UK: https://youtu.be/vYNm_0s8jBo Please PM me.
Lets not forget that our musicians are also not getting paid during this time. If you want to share the love with Bill and Bella, (and of course he will never ask and yes, I know it's not Bella in this photo),here are Billl's bank details W.A. Bill Knight ABSA Bank Longbeach Cheque Ac 442914205
Hey Bill! I know your venue is smaller than the prescribed 100 limit but many People will think twice about attending due to the whole Virus scare. JUST A THOUGHT - I wonder how many of your mailing list/members would pay a voluntary amount for a Live Streamed Show? Maybe put out feelers? If the response is good, you could get someone to do the video and streaming for you via Youtube. Olga or Neil maybe? At least the Musicians and venue could have some income during the coming months.
Cape Town! We'll be heading your way later this month as part of our Album Launch Tour! 🎸 25 March - The House Of Machines Cape Town 🎸 27 March - The Alma Cafe, Rosebank with Steve Umculo 🎸 28 March - Cottage Club- Original Folk Music Venue.

My new Webpage for info on my own gigs and coming up at the Cottage Club- Original Folk Music Venue.
I played a quiet show at Cottage Club- Original Folk Music Venue. last night. The lights went off just as the show was due to start (#loadshedding thanks #eskom) Lucy Kruger and I hadn't seen each other in years and she still slid into the harmonies for Be Brave so gloriously. This woman is a genius. This video is dimly lit, gentle and lovely and I'm so grateful for these magic moments that bubble up to the surface when ones ideas of how things SHOULD look are set aside. Thanks Bill Knight for the space. Thanks Lucy for being so genuinely good - at music and in your heart. I'm playing The Alma Cafe tonight with Jennifer Eaves. Bookings essential 021 685 7377
