Backsberg Picnic Concerts opening act revealed

CapeTalk and Backsberg Estate Cellars have been hosting several summer family picnic concerts.

This special series ends on Sunday 10 March when “Opposite The Other” will be performing.

CapeTalk has been searching for the opening act.

Musician Devin Harmer has been selected as the opening act at the March 10 Backsberg Picnic concert.

He talks to Kieno about his musical journey and what fans of the popular concert series can expect.

He says the audience will hear a 3-piece band on Sunday.

We're so excited to play at Backsberg.

Devin Harmer, Musician

Originally from Johannesburg, where he played in a number of bands, Devin made the move to the Mother City in 2012.

He adds jokingly...

I tested the waters under an alias because I wasn't sure. I mean you've only got one name so if it wasn't any good...

Devin Harmer, Musician

Then from 2014, he began performing under his own name and has not looked back.

He has moved from a solo acoustic folk sound to a more Indie Folk, with even a bit of punk rock tones together with his band, he says.
