So how did this year's festival go?

If you were there, you'll know that it was absolutely brilliant.
If you weren't there, you really missed out - and you need to put next year's dates in your diary right now (27 to 29th March 2015).
Still only in its third year, Bowness Bay Blues has definitely come of age. The venues were busy, the beer flowed, and the bands played their hearts out. Musicians and punters alike clearly appreciated the beautiful backdrop of Lake Windermere, and the friendly welcome offered by pubs, hotels and restaurants in Bowness. Thankfully this year we had no snow to contend with, and the sun even put in the odd brief appearance!

Excellent ticket sales, sponsorship and generous donations from festivalgoers ensured that over £6000 was raised for this year's chosen charitable cause - Automated External Defibrillators for the Windermere First Responders Team - and other charities supported by the Rotary Club of Windermere.
