The Cottage Club was founded by Bill Knight, a renowned local Folk musician-singer-songwriter and is situated in the Fish Hoek Valley.
We embrace everything from Folk (in the widest possible sense) Blues and Classical – anything with Passion. In many ways, this is “Voorkamer Music”. Performers love the Warmth of the Room, and the attentive and respectful Audience. We have found the Club is an important forum for Musicians to Perform, meet, collaborate, and network, and for Patrons to celebrate a common passion and to make lasting friendships.
Our Stage has been blessed with Veteran Local Legends, Troubadours, Instrumental Virtuosos and upcoming Performers who subscribe to the same Principles . We pride ourselves with having our “regular” musicians but balance this with the showcasing of new musicians. Some of our regulars are ; Valiant Swart, Koos Kombuis ,Tony Cox, Steve Newman, Roger Lucey and of course, Bill Knight.
We meet, generally twice a month and can seat about 35. Folks either bring a Picnic or get the Soup of the day. Folks bring their own Drinks, strong & weak. We usually have a roaring fire in winter and guests picnic on the lawn in summer.
Since we’re in a Residential area, and we respect our Neighbours, we don’t do Kit Drums or Electric Bass. We take pre-bookings only and don’t encourage walk-ins . The Club is a NGO dedicated to the celebration, nurturing and development of Local Music, especially original Music, even more so Kaapse Music. This is not a business enterprise, but a Cultural Club. An admission Fee covers the Performer and the Sound Engineer
