CHINNOR’S Music at The Farm festival has proved to be a great day for an even better cause.
The successful event which took place on August 21 raised money for the charity Habitat 4 Humanity which builds safe, decent and affordable shelter for vulnerable people around the world.
Crowds of people flocked to The Old Dairy Farm on the day to see a wide variety of talented bands and musicians.
Performers included band Dubwiser, who have been around since the late 90s and have supported the Wailers twice in the UK as well as playing with many of the greats.
Joining them on the day was renowned solo artist and session singer Natalie Maddix. Dubwiser’s unique sounds of reggae, rap and hip hop showed why they have stood the test of time.
Skasoul only formed in 2010 and they excelled with their covers music, from bands like Madness, Bad Manners and The Specials. They pack out every venue they perform, and have developed an extremely loyal following. The Faze Three band were billed as a Caribbean steel band but showed they were much more than that. The audiences found it almost impossible to sit still when their exciting beats and rhythms started flowing.
Icing on Top consisted of Heather on sax and flute and Belle on the vocals playing to specially-mixed tracks.
Heather was fresh from entertaining corporate guests at Wimbledon and more recently at Silverstone and provided quality entertainment in the form of blues, jazz and funk.
The French connection are a local band that covered a mixed variety of music. They were as entertaining as they were versatile and played a variety of reggae, rock and blues. The connection to France comes from the fact that their bass player lives there.
The name Jakobi comes from the unity of two names - the brothers Jake and Toby who delighted the crowds with the particular twist that they bring to popular songs.
All round the festival was a great success and it is hoped it will return next year.
