With over 500 000km on the clock, folk-rock musician Heather Waters and her 1975 Sharky Bandwagon Kombi have been making musical memories all over South Africa.

For the last decade, Heather and her band have been road tripping along the coast of South Africa, in Africa, parts of Europe and the United Kingdom.

Hailing from Cape Town, Heather is coming back to her roots for the final leg of her “Pick Daisies” tour.

Inspiring audiences with her honest and witty lyrics and musical energy, reminiscent of the 1960s, Heather has performed at theatres, backpackers, markets and festivals on and off the beaten track.

This year, with the release of her album Castles & Towers and its chart successes on local radio stations across the country, Volkswagen SA has mobilised her with the 6th generation Volkswagen Kombi Caravelle for a safer, more comfortable, and better equipped tour bus life.

Since May, Heather and her crew have travelled more than 20 000km throughout South Africa, while her single “Pick Daisies” topped radio charts as far and fast as the new T6 drove them.

Her reputation as one of the top acoustic folk-rock artists precedes her. Her music has been described as “ethereally captivating” (by Peter Romp, writing for The Cape Times) and “bold and unflinching” (by Nick Frost, a blogger).

During the last decade, Heather has won numerous awards, both locally and internationally. She has worked with some of the country’s greatest music engineers and producers, including multi-Sama-award-winning producer Peter Pearlson.

For one night only, Heather will perfrom at Café Roux on Thursday 20 October. V Tickets for the show cost R100 from www.web­ Visit, email or call 021 789 2538.
