Are You A Music Lover? If you are, you need to set aside July 15th-17th, 2016 to catch an absolutely stellar line-up of talent at the 2nd annual NeelyG Festival of Music. The Neely G Festival will feature the best of Folk, Blues, Roots, Celtic, Country and Bluegrass music for three fabulous days.

Held at the R10 Venue in Long Creek, New Brunswick, this three-day event features Main Stage Concerts, Songwriter Circles, Interactive Workshops, Master Classes, Open Mic Opportunities and New Artist Showcases.

This year’s festival also features FOUR CHORDS & THE TRUTH, a rare opportunity to hear bare-bones versions of songs inspired by the “in the round” sessions on Canada’s East Coast and in Nashville.

The NeelyG Festival was created by New Brunswick native Sheree Gillcrist and her partner Declan Campbell, to honour the memory of her beautiful daughter, Neely. It will soon be three years since Sheree lost her beloved daughter. She conceived this festival as a way to honour Neely’s love of music and her musical spirit.

Music is a moral law. It gives soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, and charm and gaiety to life and to everything. (Plato)
