Music rocks crowd at South Lakes festival

ROCK and pop music was heard in the great outdoors when the weather turned fine for a festival.

The Lowick Beer and Music Festival took place at the Farmers Arms in Lowick, near Coniston, on Saturday.

The event, in its second year, featured bands from across Cumbria and people of all ages enjoyed a range of different styles of music.

Artists appearing included Fixing Midnight’s Jeff Bilham, AKA Mr Jeff, who played a set of acoustic rock ’n’ roll and Carlisle-based southern rock band Thirteen Stars who played a set of their own material, heavily influenced by Neil Young and Lynyrd Skynyrd.

Millom band Foxtrot headlined, playing pop punk in the vein of Blink 182 and New Found Glory.

Angus Braham, landlord of the Farmers Arms, said the nice weather meant the festival was able to take place in a field across from the pub.

He told the Evening Mail: “It went very well. The weather came good at the last minute after some heavy showers and it stayed nice all day.

“The crowd was a bit ebb and flow but we got quite a few people in over the day. We did it last year but it was much smaller as we only held it in the car park.

“We have a guy who helps called Chris Garrett who organises all the bands. But we had to organise the stage and things like that.

“We are already thinking about next year but there are no plans yet.”
