Local music with local food at Sample Food Festival

WOULD you like some local eats with your locally grown music?

The Jesse Morris Band will spearhead a line-up of local troubadours appearing at the Sample Food Festival in Bangalow this Saturday.

The hinterland-based Jesse Morris Band will be on stage from 2-4pm with Irish balladeer come Byron local Mick McHugh on stage from 1-2pm.

The smooth sounds of Suffolk singer-songwriter Rob DeMasi will take centre stage from 12-1pm.

You can also catch the Jesse Morris Band at Club Lennox on Sunday from 4-7pm before they head off on tour to far north Queensland before appearing at the Wallaby Creek Festival deep in the rainforest near Cooktown.

The Jesse Morris Band, which includes Lucille Wilson, Shane Kellahan and Hutcho from the Three Beans, provides an impressive live show that promises to get the static shaking, your soul shining and leave you with a good-vibes hangover.

Each band member has more than 10 years experience touring with various acts across Australia, New Zealand and Asia.

Jesse is the son of blues and roots music legend John Morris (the Blues Preachers) and was born into a musical household with a guitar in his hand.

Together Jesse and the Three Beans make true, honest Australian roots music.

Sample Food Festival will take place at the Bangalow Showground from 8am-4pm on Saturday.

The day will feature food from local restaurants, local produce and farmers market stalls plus entertainment, cooking demonstrations and children's activities.

Entry is free.
