LARGE crowds flocked to a top Suffolk attraction this weekend as it played host to some country music with a difference.

Around a thousand visitors turned out at Easton Farm Park yesterday to enjoy the Maverick Music Festival - a three-day event featuring young musicians from local schools, rising stars, bands from the USA and workshops for people of all ages.

Organiser Paul Spencer said: “It went like a dream. The weather was an absolute blessing, there was a great environment for the campers and a very mellow atmosphere.”

The music, drawing on old country traditions, featured the sounds of banjos and acoustic guitars creating a “back-porch” feel.

“It was a family friendly environment with a family friendly programme,” he added.
