On the 'Country Roads' again

South Asia’s longest running concert Country Roads returns on February 21 with a country-themed fair for the entire family along with the main musical event.

Crowd favourites, the Mavericks from Germany- namely larger-than-life cowboys Dirk Maverick, Steve Bohn and Dietmar on pedal steel guitar will be back in Sri Lanka courtesy Sri Lanka Tourism along with UK folk duo Astrid Brook and Amelie Chevalier. Local favourites Anno Domini as well as iconic entertainer Ronnie Leitch too return while new group Wagon Park will play at the concert for the first time.

The audience can also see the Country Revival Band, featuring co-founders of the Country Music Foundation, Feizal Samath and Jury Majid along with a few close friends in action.

Co-founder of the Country Music Foundation Feizal Samath, speaking at a media briefing held on Tuesday said Country Roads will have something for both adults and children alike –music, games, pony rides, face painting, and competitions galore.

Over the years Country Roads has helped raise millions of rupees for various children’s causes and proceeds of this year’s concert will be directed towards the national ‘Sevana Sarana Fund’ for children’s education, supported by the country’s Department of Probation and Child Care Services and recommended by Save the Children UK.

Country Roads takes place on Sunday, February 21 at the Dutch Burgher Union (114, Reid Avenue, Colombo 04, adjoining the Thunmulla Junction) from 4.30 p.m. onwards. Tickets are priced at Rs. 500 and will be available at the DBU and selected Cargills outlets. Sponsors for this event are Dialog Telekom PLC and Cargills Ceylon PLC.

For more information or to contribute to this cause please contact Feizal on 0112 304179.
