For South African musician Rowan Stuart, stepping onto the stage is like coming home. The lights, the crowd and the warm bed of volume are his sanctuary. It’s not about the effortless and fluent guitar playing and improvisation, or the serene and soothing voice. This is a place for Rowan to share a piece of his imagination, and invite people into a world that is familiar but different each time. Armed with only an acoustic guitar and a loop pedal, Rowan paints a sonic landscape of Acoustic Alternative music, incorporating elements of folk, pop and world music, into a sound that is both deep and authentic.
