Millport headliner cancels in wake of Hurricane Harvey devastation
"As you know the Gulf area of Texas was hit hard with a hurricane over the last few days. In Beaumont, TX where Mark Chesnutt lives, they received over 30 inches of rain during this storm. Mark cannot leave his house. The streets are flooded and closed. Today the water was shut off to the entire city and electricity is sporadic. The death toll has passed 30 and we fear there will more to come. Mark really wanted to make this show and we tried every way possible to get it done. In the end, it was just too dangerous to drive out on the streets. Please let everyone from the Millport Festival know that Mark and his family are safe, but to please pray for the people on the Gulf Coast, it’s going to take a long time get things cleaned up and the area back to normal. We hope we can it make to Scotland for a show in future."
In light of this announcement the Sunday concert venue at Millport Country Music Festival will now feature Gary Quinn, Adley Stump, Ivory, David Ray & Morgan Frazier and will be headlined by Glasgow's own Ashton Lane.
In aid of those affected by the situation in Texas, tickets for this venue on Sunday 3rd September are now FREE with a suggested contribution of £5 per wristband that will be donated to help those affected by Hurricane Harvey and the subsequent flooding.

All admission monies and profits from festival t-shirts on Sunday will go to Texas to help in some small way the hardships being experienced there, all unclaimed refunds will be added to this.
The Saturday concert headlined by The Shires and the core-festival will proceed as planned.

The entire Millport Team send our thoughts to Mark and his family, his management team and all those affected by Hurricane Harvey; that they stay safe and that we plan to put on one heck of a show to raise as much as we can in support of those affected.
