Expect an even bigger line up with even bigger names at the fourth Bowness Bay Blues Weekend this weekend 27 – 29 March. Three days of the very best of British Blues bands and performers and billed to be an even greater event than 2014.
Only in its fourth year, Bowness Bay Blues may be seemed to be one of the newer music festivals to take place in the Lake District, and that is most definitely the fact, but this 3 day even has gained high recognition right from the off. It’s continuation to grow and attract more and even bigger names has highlighted the festival further in its field.
Well who could not fail to be bursting with musical creativity and joy at playing or attending a music festival in Bowness on Windermere with most of the venues being a stone’s throw from Lake Windermere? For Blues fans then it must be one of, if not the best location in the UK with the backdrop of the Lake and fells. Even if you’re just up in the area for walking or a weekend break, it really would be a crying shame not to attend at least one of the venues.
Headliners for the 2015 festival are, David Migden & The Twisted Roots, an exciting electric five-piece, performing original material in a genre-busting crossover of rock, blues and twisted American roots. The Laurence Jones Band, fronted by a brilliant young guitarist who has been likened to Robin Trower and called ‘The Future of the Blues’ and Northsyde, a unique band, with a grooving combination of rock, funk and a serious nod to the blues.
Attending and supporting this festival also means supporting local charities. Last year a massive £6000 was raised through ticket sales, sponsorship and donations for Automated External Defibrillators for the Windermere First Responders Team along with other charities supported by the Rotary Club of Windermere.
Find accommodation for the weekend out of the hustle and bustle up in Windermere village at Applegarth Villa where dinner, bed and breakfast rates start at £210 per room based on 2 sharing.
