Barkingside shoppers were greeted with sweet sounds of jazz and folk songs as a music festival took place in a sun-baked Ken Aston Square this weekend.
More than 30 artists performed at the Redbridge Midsummer Music Fest day festival, in High Road, on Saturday, June 30.
Three-piece psychedelic blues rock band The Tea Project headlined the show with support from singer-songwriter and guitarist
Ron Jeffries said: “Ken Aston Square in Barkingside was alive with music on Saturday as Redbridge Music Lounge staged ‘Music in the Town’ - a day long feast of vocal and instrumental acts.
“Shoppers stopped in their tracks as the music wafted across the busy high street.
“On a scorching hot day, those who had the time relaxed on chairs, some tapped their feet to the rhythm and others danced.
The event was coordinated by Redbridge Music Lounge and the Green Fair Music Club.
