CanyonsFest Music Festival Slated for May 6

 

On Sunday, May 6, the hills surrounding the College of the Canyons Canyon Country campus will come alive with the sounds of the first-ever CanyonsFest Music Festival.

The festival’s music lineup includes performances by Sue Rey and The Runarounds, Robert Heft Blues Band, Mary White and Magnolia Drawl, and Savannah Burrows.

“We are very excited to host the CanyonsFest music festival,” said Ryan Theule, vice president of the Canyon Country campus. “The campus’ beautiful open space and amphitheater provides a perfect venue for live music, and this is a great opportunity to welcome the community to engage with the Canyon Country campus during our 10th anniversary year.”

Sue Rey and the Runarounds is an all-star cast of musicians that plays rock and roll classic tunes from 50s, 60s and 70s. A local band favorite, they have become known for their exciting and crowd-pleasing stage performances.

The Robert Heft Blues Band is fronted by Robert Heft who has been performing, touring and recording for more than 40 years. The band performs blues, country, and rock and roll classics, in addition to Heft’s original music.

Mary White and Magnolia Drawl combines rock and jazz with a side of saxophone in their performances. Frontwoman Mary White is an experienced songwriter whose soulful southern voice can be heard in various films, such as HBO’s “Take Me Back to Oklahoma.” White was selected by the U.S. Armed Forces to entertain troops in South Korea and Cuba.

Savannah Burrows was inspired to pick up a guitar after watching Taylor Swift perform in 2010. Since then, Burrows has been performing her original music throughout Santa Clarita. Burrows is the 2017 winner of the 35th Local Nationwide Country Showdown Contest in Santa Clarita, which drew 8,000 country music fans.

This free family-friendly event will also feature food trucks, activities, and vendor booths, along with information about campus programs, services, and class registration opportunities.

Festival goers are encouraged to bring blankets and beach chairs.

The CanyonsFest Music Festival will be held from noon to 4 p.m. Sunday, May 6.
