Organisers of a charity concert and music festival in Welshpool this summer have announced more details about the event.

Music for the Monty will take place in the town during the Welshpool Transport Festival (June 23-24) and more than a dozen musicians and bands have volunteered to busk at sites around Welshpool to raise funds for the Restore the Montgomery Canal! appeal.

The evening concert features Welshpool and Shropshire bands, The Kytes, I am Sam Acoustic and the Shropshire Boatmen, who are donating their talents for free.

All proceeds from ticket sales will be going towards the appeal to reconnect the Montgomery Canal between Powys and Shropshire.

Said David Aylwin of Music for the Monty: “The Montgomery Canal is one of the UK’s most beautiful canals and over the past few years, great strides have been made in reopening it to boats. But now we want to help raise awareness – and funds – so that the canal is reopened through to Welshpool and Newtown which will provide a significant tourist boost to the area.”

“We are really pleased to be working with Welshpool Transport Festival to provide music around the town, especially in the Canal Wharf area, which is on the Montgomery Canal.”

Tickets for the evening concert, priced at £8, are available from the Tourist Information Centre in Welshpool and online at www.musicforthemonty.co.uk.
