A CHARITY extravaganza will feature some of the West Country’s most famous musical sons this summer.

Daz’s Rock 4 Charity will be held at the Colston Hall in Bristol to raise money for the Children’s Hospice South West and will feature legendary scrumpy and western act The Wurzels.

The concert on August 24 will also feature The Communicators, Daz and Friends, Teresa Alexander, Ryan Mills, Jake Sims, Stacey Lou Hunt, Beyond Control and the Spectrum BS3 Dancers.

Bristol-based musician Darren ‘Daz’ Sims has held a number of charity gigs across the region in recent years, including several on Weston’s Grand Pier.

Those concerts have raised more than £60,000 for various charities, and this month’s event will support the Wraxall-based children’s hospice.

Since they were formed by the legendary Adge Cutler in 1974 The Wurzels have undergone numerous line-up changes and played hundreds of gigs across the country, bringing the riotous fun of true Somerset scrumpy and western to the masses.

The group – currently consisting of Tommy Banner, Pete Budd, John Morgan and Sedge Moore – are best-known for such rambunctious hits as Combine Harvester and I Am A Cider Drinker.

Tickets, priced £10, are available by calling 0117 9223686 or visiting www.colstonhall.org
