Hatchetman On The #SATop20

Two of Cape Town’s best loved acoustic folk acts, Jenny and the Jameses and Hatchetman at long last join forces in a showcase evening of acoustic music, harmony singing and the start of a quiet revolution.


“This is Wooden Music” promises to take you back to the heyday of the singer songwriter, the days when musicians were given the ultimate gift of silence into which to perform their music. Both bands have quietly been growing a repertoire of delicate and beautiful acoustic music over the last 5 years and have consistently won audiences over across the country with their remarkable close vocal harmony singing.

Hatchetman joins us live in studio tonight at 5:30pm!

Jenny and the Jameses are Jennifer Eaves (guitar, vocals), James Harvey (harp, accordion, banjo, vocals) and James Hall (fiddle, vocals).
Hatchetman is Jono Tait (guitar, vocals), Matt Catto (Percussion, Vocals) and Nick Catto (Percussion, vocals) From Keith Blundell’s (The Catto brothers’ grandfather) touring the country in the sixties and television fame in the seventies, to Richard Tait and Neil Harvey serving as integral parts of the English based folk and acoustic scene in SA in the eighties, the third generation of these three South African musical families combine for a night of magic in which their rich heritage is celebrated in a night of song, harmonies and soul.

About Hatchetman

This foursome combine their prodigious musical and vocal talents to form Hatchetman, a band that, as the name suggests, cuts straight to the heart with songs on life, love, and most things in between. Their soaring harmonies and searing dynamism in the musical accompaniment has brought many a person to tears.

The honesty, and a willingness to explore the darker and more tender sides of the human condition, as well as a very personal and human presentation of the same, sets the band apart from many of their contemporaries. Lyrical topics range from heartbreak to a rumination of the multifaceted nature of Cape Town, while musically, the band meets somewhere between folk, rock, funk and acoustically inclined sounds, all delicately underpinned by the poignant, powerful and beautiful blend of three voices.

The band’s genesis also lies in Alma Cafe where Jono first heard Nick and Matt singing harmonies together as sidemen to another singer songwriter. Jono was, at the time, pursuing a solo career but as soon as he heard the brothers singing, he knew a slightly different path had opened. The three got
together and it was an instantaneous vocal chemistry that set the band on their road of musical discovery and sharing.Now, five years later, career highlights include two Silver Ovation awards from the National Arts Festival, local and international.
