The Craftworks Foundation announces three of the four musical acts to perform at the 23rd Annual Southern Brewers Festival to be held on Saturday, Aug. 26, from 2-10 p.m. on the Chattanooga Riverfront in downtown Chattanooga. The headliner will be Magpie Salute. Cereus Bright and Hank & Cupcakes will also perform.
Review for the performers:
The Magpie Salute is an exciting new band created by Rich Robinson that features musicians who have played together for decades throughout various projects and share a musical bond. The Magpie Salute marks the reunion of the Robinson and Ford guitar team which ended back in 1997.
Cereus Bright was born out of a blind love of playing music. Founding members Tyler Anthony and Evan Ford from Knoxville, connected over a shared passion–connecting with people by writing and performing meaningful, melodic songs.
Hank & Cupcakes are an Atlanta-based indie rock-pop duo formed in 2008 in Tel Aviv, Israel. The group consists of husband-and-wife Ariel "Hank". They draw inspiration from the events of their life with nonstop movement, graffiti, and art. Their musical style is combining heavy drumming with funky disco riffs and synthpop elements.
The forth musical act will be announced in mid-June.
Tickets for the festival are on sale now. General admission is $20 until June 15 and $25 after June 15. Admission at the gate will be $30.
