Backsberg Estate Cellars' popular Picnic Concert series concludes in Paarl on Sunday 16 March with a live performance by multi-instrumental group Mr Cat & The Jackal, and you could be there, sharing this unique experience compliments of Backsberg and Platter's Guide.
The Sunday Picnic Concerts, staged among Backsberg Estate's vineyards and gardens, let you, family and friends enjoy a glass of wine, feast on lamb wraps or beef burgers, and unwind to the sounds of some of South Africa's top performers.
Formed in 2006 and originally devoted to writing musical scores for theatre productions, Mr Cat & The Jackal is a unique five-piece group whose style is often described as experimental acoustic folk with blues, tango, pirate, Balkan and Irish themes.
Their debut album, Themes & Variations, was released in November 2007, followed in March 2011 by the critically acclaimed studio album Sins & Siren Songs.
With a circus of sounds created by foreign and handmade instruments, their live performance is a complete theatrical experience.
