WHEN you've played with the likes of Elton John, Eric Clapton, Shirley Bassey and toured with The Wanted, you'd be forgiven for forgetting your roots, but not local musician Murray Gould.
After a 12-month whirlwind, and having shared stages in the past with the likes of Brian May, Alice Cooper, Paul Weller, Alfie Boe, Deep Purple and even Elvis Presley, to name a few, Murray, pictured, and his band Shine will be coming home to headline the Bowgie Inn's Ale Festival this weekend.
The occasion doesn't just mark the huge celebration that brings together the finest ales, live music, tasty food and summer fun for all, it also marks the first performance from Shine in over a year. Due to illness in the band as well as some milestone birthdays, this performance is set to be even more special.
So what can you expect? With covers from all your favourites, from Reef, Abba, Lady Gaga, Kings of Leon, Michael Jackson, The Who and Queens Of The Stone Age, plus many more, this really is a band which caters to the masses. Covering all genres and generations, Shine will, well, shine at The Bowgie and do what every good festival should, bring people together.
Shine will be playing on Sunday from 8pm.
Other acts taking to the stage at the Crantock pub will be Idle Hands, The Prevention, Josh Curnow, Cool as ****, Country Mark, 4 Shades of Grey, Tumbao and Black Velvet. With over 30 ales and ciders to try, including Hooky Bitter, Cheddar Gorge Best and Cotswold Spring Codger, and tasty pasties to soak it all up, it's what Bank Holidays were made for.
