Critically acclaimed Birmingham born singer songwriter Ben Drummond and The Boathouse in Sutton Coldfield are pleased to announce the 2nd annual Roots music festival on Sunday 20th July in aid of cancer research.
Entry is free to the event that runs from 11pm to 10am on the open terrace at The boathouse. Last years event attracted nearly 1000 music fans through out the day and saw completely live performances from 15 acts. This years festival has created so much interest that people are urged to get there early and get a good spot.
Vodaphone and Myspace artist to watch Ben Drummond, who also works for the Jamhouse in Birminghams jewellery quarter, says ” It’s really heart warming that people have wanted another roots festival, we’ve had an amazing response from so many people who came last year and raised money for such a great cause.”
People really enjoy the vibe, as the bands play you get immersed in this beautiful setting, the sun goes down over the lake and there is BBQ food, cold beer and sunshine. Families bring there kids and musicians, fans and friends all come together to listen and have some good times in such a beautiful location.
So many people have volunteered there time, including a full PA supplied by Birmingham wedding band Capital Groove. You can visit their site here – www.capitalgroove.co.uk
