Free Live Music Across Sedgemoor 

Free Live Music Across Sedgemoor 

Sedgemoor’s unique Front Garden Music Festival is back for a third year and it is set to be even bigger and better than before. Everyone can enjoy a weekend of free LIVE music right in the heart of the community on Saturday 10 and Sunday 11 June 2023.

Front Garden Music Festival was created to bring live music right to where people live. It is accessible, family-friendly fun. Best of all, it is completely free to attend. Seed will be bringing stages to Bridgwater (Cranleigh Gardens and Victoria Park), Cheddar (Community Pavilion), Edington (Village Hall), Highbridge (St John’s Church, Church Street, Market Street Green and the Coopers Arms), and at the National Trust’s Fyne Court at Broomfield. People across Sedgemoor will not have to travel far from home to be able to experience a high-quality live music event.

Seed CEO Scott O’Hara says ‘The Front Garden Music Festival gives a unique platform for local musicians to showcase their talents alongside top professional acts. This years’ exciting programme is jampacked with acts from jazz and classical to punk and pop. There is something for everyone on the programme, including our exciting headliners Redtenbacher’s Funkestra featuring singer Jana Varga on our full-size festival main stage in Cranleigh Gardens’

Redtenbacher’s Funkestra is a Funky Collective of world class musicians with 20 releases to their name. They have and have recorded with a ‘who’s who’ from the international Jazz Funk and Fusion scene including legends like Alfred ‘Pee Wee’ Ellis (James Brown) Prince’s New Power Generation horn section (aka ‘The Hornheads’), Brand New Heavies, Cory Wong and many more. Fatea magazine described headliner Jana Varga’s music as ‘The Stuff Carnegie Hall shows are made of’ so we are delighted they are coming to perform for us in Bridgwater’.

Front Garden Music Festival 2023 also offers performances from Seed’s community groups including Bridgwater’s Guitar and Bass Group, the Chilton Polden Music Group and the Highbridge Youth Theatre, alongside leading local talent including Blues in the Pews resident band Mossflower. There is also an exciting programme of professional artists. RSVP Bhangra will be getting the crowd dancing with Bhangra workshops in Victoria Park in Bridgwater.  Andy Novak Trio add high quality jazz to the lineup at Cheddar Pavilion and Fyne Court and pop-punk favourites Slackrr return for their third year at the event, this time in Cranleigh Gardens.

It is free for everyone to experience and enjoy. You will need to prebook your tickets for Cranleigh Gardens and RSVP Bhangra workshops to ensure your place – you can do this online. Bring a picnic, family and friends and enjoy a great weekend of FREE live music.
