Live music, featuring mostly local talent who have been or who are waiting to be discovered started in November 2017 with the very popular skiffle band, Hokum, who have now played four very successful sessions for us. Other artists so far featured are Ryan Noble, Naomi Ackroyd, Michelle Veasey, Greame Cox, Brandy Jacks, Rectory Street Band, Nowheremen, Bluestrings, Dom & Kieran and Mello John. We also featured Tom Hingley (the frontman of the 90s group ‘Inspiral Carpets’) at a ticket only event just prior to Christmas 2018.
At this year’s BowerFest (2019) we had the following acts: Tom Hingley (frontman of ‘Inspiral Carpets’), Nowheremen, Fiery Biscuits, Hokum & Storm. They all did great sessions, helping to create a fantastic and memorable event.
