Miri Country Music Festival to return

MIRI: The fourth Miri Country Music Festival (MCMF) will take place this Saturday and Sunday (Feb 25-26) at ParkCity Everly Hotel here.

MCMF artistic director Asif Ben Pishori said the bands selected would bring to the stage ‘a diverse refreshing twist of styles’.

“It will be a fusion of traditional country music genres – Bluegrass, Roots, Rock N Roll, Rhythm and Blues, Folk, Americana, Soul and even Celtic country together with a mix of traditional Irish and Scottish music; to name a few.

“When I started pulling together the line-up of MCMF 2017, I wanted to choose something different to what we had presented before. We had over 40 applications from bands and artistes from around the globe hoping for a chance to occupy a slot at MCMF 2017.”

The Malaysian bands are Raggy Project from Penang, Adi and Maha from Sabah, as well as the homegrown Mountain Wind Band and Country Road Band.
