The idea of forming the band started back in 1999-2000, when Nicholas and Neilan, who couldn't play an instrument, got bitten by the music bug. After many years of musical wanderings the band managed to come together as a performing act under the Firethorn name in late 2006 with the inclusion of Peter Hardenburg on bass. Influenced by many musical styles and genres, the band weaved together all their influences - ranging from The Beatles to Malian and South African sounds - into a unique aural experience. The band has been plying its trade across the Cape Town musical landscape, and continues to strive to be a quality local musical group.
Join us at Expression Session on Thursday October 28, to hear Firethorn's acoustic set!
