Bantock House Museum stages its 12th annual Music Live festival on Bank Holiday Monday (27 May, 2013) - and it promises to be bigger and better than ever.

The free, family-friendly event will showcase a wide variety of music from around the region.

The line-up includes the cool sounds of Shrewsbury guitarist Tom Saunders, who entertained VIPs at the 2012 Olympic Games opening and closing ceremonies with a mix of original materials and covers, clarinet and saxophone wizard Keith Crane and his dance band classics from the 1920s and traditional Irish tunes from Wolverhampton's own favourites Sons of the Sod and Fanny Power.

There will also be jazz funk from Elizabeth Fields, fine contemporary covers from singer-pianist Kate LeFroy and finally a great mix of laid back Americana, blues, roots and jazz standards courtesy of guitarists Lost Highway.

Bantock House manager Helen Steatham said: "We're really looking forward to this year's event. We have some exciting performers who are new to Bantock, as well as some old favourites, and the mix of music promises something for everyone.

"We're hoping it will be dry but even if it does rain that won't dampen our enthusiasm as we'll just move indoors and continue the party!"

Bantock House Museum and café will be open from 11am to 5pm on Monday and the music will be playing from 12pm until around 4pm.
