The Fourth Annual Save the Valley Music Fest will take place on Friday, Sept. 9, from 7 to 11 p.m. at World Cafe Live at the Queen, in Wilmington, said a press release from Save the Valley.

Save the Valley – whose mission is to protect and preserve the remaining open spaces in Beaver Valley, located along the Brandywine River in Pennsylvania and Delaware – is partnering with Gable Music Ventures after a successful event in 2015. This year’s fundraiser will showcase six bands – three of which are local high school bands that fought for their place on the stage at a sold-out event in April.

In addition, Maryland-based blues singer and saxophonist Vanessa Collier is bringing her full band back to perform in the wake of a crowd-pleasing main stage performance at The Ladybug Festival. Wilmington’s own island/folk/blues hybrid trio The Splashing Pearls will do a rare performance as the local headliner. The event headliner is Bronze Radio Return, an American indie/roots rock sextet from Hartford, Conn.

World Cafe Live at the Queen Is located at 500 N. Market St. in Wilmington. Tickets are $15 in advance and $18 at the door. Tickets can be obtained at http://queentickets.worldcafelive.com/event/1281043. For more information, visit savethevalley.org/music.

Save the Valley is an entirely volunteer-run grassroots organization that facilitates public education by bringing awareness regarding the risk and impacts of development in Beaver Valley, an irreplaceable piece of land, rich in heritage and beauty amongst a backdrop of urban sprawl. The fields and forests of this land offer a unique opportunity to escape from the confines of the city and allow individuals to connect with nature, the release said.
