WITH over 20 class acts from across the country, a magic little music festival takes place next weekend.
Those lovely people in Bramfield, near Datchworth, have invited an eclectic, summery bunch of artists to the fourth Bramfest at the village on Saturday, June 20, to play a wide range of music from lo-fi to hip-hop to 60s pop.
Acts appearing across the main stage and acoustic tent include the popsicle-melting tunes of Ivan Campo and the sweet quirky ukulele sounds of Sandra And The Memory Machine.
There's also soulful yet spiky indie-rock from Brixton's The Thirst, and Gideon Conn's inventive, shimmering hip-hop.
