The fifth edition of a Suffolk blues festival has been hailed a success by organisers.
Hundreds headed to the Museum of East Anglian Life in Stowmarket for the fifth StowBlues Festival, to see bands including Rhonda and the Great Unknown, Back Porch, JS and the Lockerbillies and Remedy.
Museum CEO John Lanagan said: “It’s been fantastic – obviously the weather helps but we’ve had great bands, and we ran out of beer, which is a good and a bad thing. We’re getting a bit of a reputation in the town. The atmosphere was fantastic and everyone was having a great time.”
Mike Rushmore, co-organiser of the event, and part of Back Porch, said: “I did a quick head count and there were 300 people in before the music started.
“One of the brilliant things about this setting is that it’s a great atmosphere.
