Top pop rock act The Hoosiers are set to feature in one of the county’s most popular music festivals this spring.

The band will join headline act The Feeling at this year’s LeeStock Music Festival, which will be held at Melford Hall in May.

The Hoosiers who found success in 2007 when their debut album “The Trick of Life” reached number one in the charts will be the main support act on the Saturday.

The album featured three top 40 singles, Worried About Ray, Goodbye Mr A and Cops and Robbers and was followed up by the hit album ‘The Illusion of Safety’ which reached number 10 in the album chart.

LeeStock is named in the memory of 21-year-old Sudbury musician Lee Dunford, who died in 2006 after a brave battle with cancer.

The festival, which is now in its ninth year, has so far raised nearly £70,000 for the Willow Foundation, a charity that provides special days for seriously ill young adults, including Lee shortly before he died from Hodgkin’s Lymphoma.

Previous headliners at the festival, which this year is on May 28 and 29, have included Scouting For Girls, Toploader, the Lightning Seeds and Wheatus.

Edd Keogh, one of the organisers, said: “Lee loved music and was a bass-player in his band so I hope he would be very pleased at the thought of a festival raising money in his name.”
