Fine bill for biggest festival

THE biggest-ever beer and music festival in Grange’s history takes place this weekend.

Room Full of Mirrors

Commfest will see two days packed with live performances from bands and solo acts at The Commodore Inn, in Main Street, as well as dozens of real ales on offer and a charity hot dog eating competition.

Eclectic folk rock band Room Full of Mirrors are likely to be one of the main attractions, drawing upon every rootsy genre, from Celtic tunes to reggae grooves, Eastern European vibes to Americana, Middle Eastern sounds to English folk music. Another well-known Cumbrian band, southern rock outfit Thirteen Stars, perform their Neil Young and Lynyrd Skynyrd-influenced set, and upbeat ceilidh band The Noise Club bring their mostly self-penned material.

Gritty Britain return from playing Kendal Calling to appear, the risque rock band joined by Furness acoustic duo Paper Cranes, who play a mix of melodic and foot-stomping numbers, with covers from artists such as Mumford & Sons and The Black Keys.

Chris Garratt, of Ulverston alt-rock band Sad-Eyed Puffins, will play a solo set, as too will indie singer-songwriter Jamie Bosanko, Cornish female artist Louella Jade Eke, and American musician Chuck Fish, with more to be announced over the weekend.

Music runs throughout both days of the event, and entrance is free.
