One of Hamilton’s longest-running music festivals has found a creative way to entertain audiences this summer.

Between July 15 and July 30, the Brott Music Festival has announced it will perform three drive-in “bubble” car concerts at the Ancaster Fairgrounds.

The festival’s 34th year will also include an outdoor concert at the Sue-Ann Staff Estate Winery near Vineland on Aug. 8.

“I am thrilled to announce an opportunity to get together with our audience and musicians,” said maestro Boris Brott, “our three bubble concerts will provide a unique way of staying safely within our close family units while enjoying three outdoor evenings of fine music making.”

Brott added that COVID-19 protocols that follow provincial guidelines will be in place for all shows, including but not limited to social distancing and wearing masks.
