Looe fest is here
AFTER months of organisation and waiting Looe Music Festival 2013 is finally here this weekend with 60 bands over three days, across three stages.
The Darkness, Reef and Dizraeli & The Small Gods will head a hefty line-up of rock, punk and modern ska talent that includes The Damned, Sham 69, Missing Andy and Simon Townshend fresh from his UK tour with The Who.
Folk fans can look forward to a busy weekend of performances from celebrated folk singer-songwriter and virtuoso fiddler Seth Lakeman (making the short journey across the Tamar to take Looe beach by storm on Saturday night), plus BBC Folk Award winners (Best Folk Duo 2013) Kathryn Roberts & Sean Lakeman, singer-songwriter Judy Dunlop, and folk-pop starlet Lisbee Stainton.
If swamp-infested, Latin-American gypsy blues is more your style, Congo Faith Healers are one to catch. Listed as one of The Independent's Top 10 bands to see live in London. Carnival outfit Tankus The Henge have a reputation for whipping crowds into a frenzy too.

Named as one of Glastonbury 2011's Top 10 bands, check them out for yourself at Looe Music Festival 2013. As always, LMF will be showcasing local talent from Looe, and seasoned performers from all over Cornwall and the South West.
BBC Poetry Slam champion Dizraeli, with world beatbox champion Bellatrix and a supernaturally gifted seven-piece band make Dizraeli & the Small Gods the ones to see on the Friday night at the beach.
Rockney heroes Chas & Dave will close the weekend in style supported by the pioneers of 'oom-pop' the lederhosen-clad, London-based Oompah Brass.
Among the local acts appearing is Jenna Bennett, who was nominated as UK Young Songwriter Of The Year in 2011 and 2012. You may remember Jenna as the front woman of Es Vedra, a band who were in the thick of the Cornish music scene from 2006 to 2009. Since then, Jenna moved to Brighton to develop as an artist.
She has kept very busy completing a music degree, while also working as a promoter, band manager, music host and a performing / recording artist.
