Posted on: Thursday, Nov 20, 2014
Now preparing to mark its fourth year, this friendly festival, in the beautiful setting of Bowness-on-Windermere, can lay claim to a regular place on any blues fan’s calendar. Last year’s event was hailed a ‘a flagship for the very best of British blues’ by Blues in the North West.

The headline bands performing on the weekend of 27th-29th March, 2015 will be David Migden & The Twisted Roots, an exciting electric five-piece, performing original material in a crossover of rock, blues and American roots; The Laurence Jones Band, fronted by a brilliant young guitarist who has been likened to Robin Trower and Eric Clapton; and Northsyde, a unique band, who combine blues, rock and funk with amazing vocals from the very talented Lorna Fothergill.
Next year’s programme will also feature some top touring acts such as Rosco Levee and the Southern Slide, The Robin Bibi Band, TJ and the Suitcase, Matt Woosey, Stark, Al Hughes, and The Blues Duo (Tommy Allen & Johnny Hewitt). From closer to home, there will be The Deluxe, Otherside, Buzz Elliott, and local favourites The Elderly Brothers.
And it’s not only about the music. Organised by the Rotary Club of Windermere, the 2014 festival raised over £6,000 for Automated External Defibrillators for the Windermere First Responders Team as well as other charities. The main beneficiaries from the 2015 event will be The Alzheimer’s Society and The Multiple Sclerosis Society.
