Miko launches live music evenings with James Stewart

16th May 2018

Mont Rochelle’s Miko restaurant has announced a series of live music evenings with Emmy-nominated musician, James Stewart.

As one of South Africa’s most acclaimed artists, Franschhoek-based James has spent his career delivering chart-topping hits including ‘Shine’ and ‘A Man Like Me’. After a brief hiatus to focus on commercial writing and his two young children, he returned with new music in 2016 and has been a regular on the Western Cape music scene ever since. This winter will be the first time that James brings his signature melodies to Mont Rochelle.

On selected dates, Miko will be inviting music-lovers to enjoy acoustic performances served alongside gourmet dishes and home-grown wines. Performances will take place between 7pm – 9pm on the following evenings:

• Wednesday 6th June
• Wednesday 25th July
• Wednesday 22nd August
• Tuesday 25th September
