Bands have signed up for the fes­ti­val which is tak­ing place at Sut­ton St James Scout Hut.

The venue was built by vol­un­teers from Sut­ton and boasts a ca­pac­ity of nearly 300 for events and has a pro­fes­sional qual­ity stage, light­ing and sound.

The line-up is be­ing put to­gether by con­cert pro­moter Chris He­witt and will in­clude String Driven Thing, a folk rock group from Glas­gow who first achieved no­to­ri­ety in the early 1970s on Charisma Records.

One of their sin­gles “It’s a Game” was later a chart hit for the Bay City Rollers.

String Driven Thing are fronted by orig­i­nal mem­bers – gui­tarist and song­writer Chris Adams and clas­si­cal vi­o­lin­ist Gra­hame Smith.

They are joined by newer mem­bers Dick Drake on drums and Andy Allan on bass.

He plays key­boards, guitar and trum­pet.

Gui­tarist and lo­cal leg­end Ge­orge Borowski will be fa­mil­iar to the peo­ple of Sut­ton and Langley and will be joined at the con­cert by Gaynor Wil­son on vo­cals.

Ge­orge’s song­writ­ing in­cludes a va­ri­ety of gen­res and he’s played with nu­mer­ous stars.

There will be an ap­pear­ance from a new group of three young fe­male singers called El­dana.
