Several bands, who were due to take to the stage at the now cancelled Summer Days festival, have got together so that the music can still play on.
Foxyfest is set to rock Clitheroe next Saturday (July 9th) and has been organised by the Ribble Valley’s own successful band Good Foxy.
The evening will start with the Clitheroe Pop Choir and the Clitheroe Ukelele Orchestra followed by classical duo Neve and Freya. Then there will be sets by The Remedy, the Slydes and The Roosevelt Room, who will come to Foxyfest straight from performing at Moofest in Darwen earlier in the evening, with Good Foxy headlining the event.
DJs Jazz and Elliott will be playing vintage vinyl in between sets. There will also be a bar and food available and a charity raffle will be held.
Admission will be £5 on the door, the first band is due on at 6.30pm.
Good Foxy formed over a shared love of music and experiences in the Summer of 2013. In the past two years they have gone from strength to strength, recording their first EP and releasing their first video ‘High Watt’ with over 14,500 views on you tube.
They have packed out gigs at prestigious venues like The Plug Sheffield, The Academy, and Night and Day Cafe in Manchester.
During the festival season they played at a handful of diverse festivals across the North of England including Burnley Blues Festival with ‘The Hoax’, Darwen Live with ‘The Beautiful South’, Cloud spotting, Glaston-Bury, Testifest and The Tour de France.
Supporting established acts like The Smiths Ltd, Limehouse Lizzy and The Doors Alive has helped raise awareness of Good Foxy amongst an older, musically aware audience.
The bands style is firmly rooted in the music created in the halcyon days of the 70’s; with a nod to Led Zeppelin, The Doors and Mountain, also more restrained acoustic artists like Nick Drake and Tim Buckley, but always original and eclectic.
