Home grown talent is set to star at this year’s Iron Acton Music in the Meadow
On Friday 1 July, Mash in the Meadows has four outstanding local bands including Mad Apple Circus.  Several members went to Iron Acton Primary School.
They have since spread their wings and last year completed a successful European Tour as well as playing at Glastonbury.
Mad Apple Circus is an original blend of horn-fuelled styles, built on Ska/Hip-Hop/Jazz and Latin grooves. They have fast become festival favourites and a popular choice among promoters in the UK and Europe and have shared stages with bands including UB40. Mad Apple Circus have unquestionably set about creating their own distinctive sound which they call BRISTONE.
Other band at the Mash include Chipping Sodbury based Elles Bailey dubbed the Blues Princess, Flash Harry and the night finishes with Gee Bay I Love you who last year played a gig at Buckingham Palace.
The 12th Proms in the Meadows is on Saturday 2 July Bring and features Bristol Millennium Orchestra with soloists from the Royal College of Music.
