Two acts announced for gig at Westonbirt Arboretum
Forestry England's summer concert series Forest Live is seeing two massive acts head to Wiltshire's Westonbirt Arboretum.
World-renowned Scottish band Texas and British singer-songwriter Rumer will be performing in the spectacular woodland location on June 12.
Formed in Glasgow by singer Sharleen Spiteri and bassist Johnny McElhone, Texas are well known for their songs 'I Don't Want A Lover', 'Getaway' and 'Sleep'.
Rumer first came to British music fans' attention back in 2010 with her debut album 'Seasons Of My Soul'.
Both will be performing as part of Forest Live, a major outdoor live music series that introduces forests to new audiences in unique, natural woodland arenas around the country.
Commenting on the shows, Sharleen Spiteri for Texas said, “We last played a Forest Live show in 2011 so for us it’s a welcome return to be performing our hits in such a beautiful setting. We hope to see you there.”
Rag'n'Bone Man, Keane and Madness are also taking part in live gigs at Westonbirt.
Over 1.9 million people have attended a Forest Live gig in the last twenty years, enjoying great music and supporting the nation’s forests when buying a ticket.
Going to a concert helps Forestry England create beautiful places for people to enjoy, run important conservation projects and keep growing trees.
Every year they plant some 8 million trees sustainably, caring for the nation’s 1,500 woods and forests and welcoming 296 million visits annually.
