Soulful Sounds in Marburg

THE hills of Marburg are set to come alive this weekend with the Soulful Spring Sounds Festival.

The festival includes a line up of local and south-east Queensland music acts of blues, roots, jazz and reggae.

Ipswich's Greg McHugh will be headlining the festival, supported by Natasha Campbell and Children of the Blues, Shoot! The Piano Player and many more over two stages and seven hours.

Entry to Soulful Spring Sounds is free and also includes a variety of other activities such as the markets with a focus on local and hand made food, produce, crafts, clothing, and jewellery.

The event is organised by Ipswich locals Natasha Campbell and Katie Toohey of Soulful Stomp Productions and is in its second year.

"Last year we had over 1500 people come to the festival and we are on target to beat those figures this year," Ms Campbell said.

"This year the SIA International Sculpture Symposium is also a part of the festival's many things to do and see."

The Sculpture Symposium will allow the public to get up and close to the sculptors in action as they turn local Helidon sandstone blocks into works of art.

Festival goers will also be able to taste and purchase the wines of Queensland's only Certified Organic Winery, Warrego Wines.

The festival is set to be a great day out with so many things to do for the whole family.

"Feedback from last years festival was overwhelmingly positive and we are looking forward to this year's festival."
