Under dry weather, for a change, the second Ross-on-Wye Busking Festival took place around the town on Saturday, August 18th, and was a great success.

Ranging in ages from those in their 20s to over 70, 22 Buskers played around the town, as well as on an open mic stage at the Market House in Ross. They came from Hereford, Coleford and Mitcheldean, and Cwmbran in Wales, as well as Ross town itself.

A variety of instruments ranging from ukuleles, banjoleles, guitars, harmonica and recorders, were accompanied by a wonderful mix of songs of covers as well as original compositions. As well as an amazing acapella set from Tina Jones of Ross-on-Wye, there was an eclectic mix of music genres from folk, blues and melodic rock.

The event was sponsored by 37 Ross traders, together with financial support from Ross Town Council, The Crown & Sceptre, and the Association of Ross Traders.See this week’s paper for more stories like this, available in shops and as a Digital Edition now.
