Shannon Hope joins South African blues legend Dan Patlansky for 14 shows in venues across South Africa as he embarks on his first acoustic tour on 29 August 2012.

“What Patlansky can do with a six-string Fender Stratocaster at the age of 30, most critically acclaimed guitarists will never quite achieve in a lifetime. In only a little over a decade on the music scene, Dan Patlansky has become one of the busiest and most respected blues artists to ever come out of South Africa. His music can best be described as vacillating between slick, soulful blues and the renegade psychedelic angst and raw emotion of Hendrix or Zeppelin, while his voice has a gut-wrenching quality that compliments the renegade approach to the Blues. He is one of those rare talents capable of whisking an audience into a netherworld of sonic orgasms.”
