Free music festival
The Grass Roots Music Festival is happening on Sunday 4th November, from 11.00am to 5.00pm at Mt Coot-tha Botanical Gardens. What better way to enjoy Brisbane's glorious Spring weather than with a day of free local music, surrounded by the exquisite greenery of the gardens. That's right people, I said free local music, courtesy of Brisbane City Council.

Now in its 8th year the annual festival celebrates home-grown talent in a family friendly, drug and alcohol free atmosphere. Showcasing some of South East Queensland's best musicians the festival is a melodic smorgasboard of original blues, roots, country and folk.

Highlights include blues & roots legend Mojo Webb, the sultry and soulful Alison Forbes, country songstress Kimberley Bowden and the feel-good grooves of Moondog's Gypsy Blues Band. The festival will be headlined by event curator and gutsy country and blues artist 8 Ball Aitken. Check out the website for the full program.

Pack a picnic lunch, a blanket or some camping chairs and head to the Bandstand lawn (next to the Japanese Gardens). Recline and relax on the grass, soaking up the soulful sounds wafting through the air, or put on your dancing shoes and get down and boogie.
