GLADSTONE musician Nathan Bedford has created another avenue for local artists to be inspired.
Bedford has organised a Reggae, Roots and Blues afternoon at the Grand Hotel and Tannum Sands Hotel this weekend.
The $10 event will feature six class acts, with a mix of soloists, duos and bands.
The El Grande organiser said it was just another way to support the local music scene.
Bedford, whose act name is Ornaments will be joined by Agnes Water, Sunshine Coast and Gold Coast artists for the event.
