Bristol Brewing Company’s Freewheelin Music Fest
announced today that Charles Bradley
will be the headliners at this year's inaugural event. The two-day festival, to be held on multiple stages at Ivywild School on Sept. 11-12, will feature more than a dozen acts, including Joe Pug, Paper Bird, Pujol, Chimney Choir, and Natural Child.
In addition to the main festival (tickets for which are available at the Bristol Dry Goods Store or through Ticketfly.com), the event will include a free Indy Music Awards
stage featuring winners of this year’s reader’s poll, who will be announced in our Sept. 9 issue.
Like this coming weekend's Blues Under The Bridge headliner Naomi Shelton, the Brooklyn-based Bradley is a veteran soul artist who was rediscovered by Daptone Records, as were Sharon Jones and Lee Fields.
