A stunning lakeside setting and a selection of top-of-the-range blues performers again proved to be a winning combination for festival goers at this year’s Bowness Bay Blues. Comments from visitors included: ‘My new favourite blues fest. Fabulous weekend. I’ve booked our accommodation for next year’ and ‘A great weekend all round’.

Appearing at eight different venues, a total of 14 bands played a wide range of music, from acoustic to Chicago-style blues; from gospel, soul and funk to electric blues-rock. Many local hotels, pubs and restaurants enjoyed increased trade, thanks to the festival.

Organised by the Rotary Club of Windermere, this annual festival, held on the weekend before Easter,  is a ‘feel-good event’ in more ways than one. This year, thanks to generous donations from festival goers, more than £6000 was raised for charity and the main beneficiaries are the Alzheimer’s Society and the Multiple Sclerosis Society.
