Singer songwriter Matthew Mole will be in Port Elizabeth to perform at the Valley Concert on Sunday, October 30, at Hopewell Conservation Estate.

Cape Town musician Mole, 23, made South African chart history by becoming the first local artist to enter the iTunes album chart at number one with his debut album, The Home We Built.

The Valley Concert is part of his national tour.

The event will also feature a pop up market with proceeds going to Bay charity Love Story, said co-founder Elaine Watson.

“We also have Deon Meiring and a few other awesome local talents as part of the lineup, an array of local artisanal food stalls, Ben Koppen Craft Beers, some of South Africa’s best wines and a play area for the kids,” Watson said.

She said the Valley Concert was modelled on the ever-popular Summer Night Concerts in Kirstenbosch, Cape Town, where crowds pic- nic in a natural amphitheatre under the stars to listen to local and international music talent.

“Hopewell has a similar setting with beautiful views and sounds of nature. Organisers have built a permanent outdoor stage for the Valley Concerts and for future outdoor events.”

Watson said the familyfriendly day should have “something for everyone”.

Tickets are on sale at: Love Story offices at 30 Albany Road; The Good Night Market at the Old Tramways on Thursday October 20 (with a 20% discount); Kingfisher FM offices in Kings Court; and online at Tickets will also be on sale on the concert day at Hopewell.
