Back to your Roots

It was reggae-a-g0-go at the Oakeley last weekend as we welcomed members of one of Britain's best loved Reggae bands, Misty In Roots.

The band, who have been playing together since 1975, were in the area to head up a new festival held at nearby Blaenau Ffestiniog. The DrumHouse Ffest filled the area with a sunny Carribbean vibe last weekend, all held in the atmospheric surroundings of the Llechwedd Slate Caverns. By all accounts the festival was a huge success, with next year's line-up already in the planning stages.

Other acts included great performances from Zion Train, Nucleus Roots and Babyhead, as well as a stunning display by one of the best Mountain Bike Display teams in the country.

We were delighted that Misty in Roots chose to stay at here with us, and we had a great time hearing all about their current projects and how much they enjoyed the festival. We hope they come back soon!

Keep an eye on the festival website for details of next year's events.
