Festival Director Alan Surtees said the winter-spring line up offered a real treat for fans of acoustic and folk music. “There is a real cross section of music on offer in this concert series from Celtic to traditional English at two great venues in Shrewsbury. Every concert will offer followers of acoustic and folk music something different and we look forward to seeing as many people as possible at the performances.” All concerts start at 7.45pm and tickets are available from The Hive on 01743 234970 or www.wegotickets.com/shropshireroots.
