Tipples and Tunes Weekend

Tipples and Tunes Weekend

Join us in Mountain hall in the heart of Rheged, for a free afternoon blending live music with mixology – the art of blending cocktails. We will also be launching a new cocktails menu for you to sample whilst listening to live music.

The afternoon includes two 45 minute Cocktail demonstrations by Helen Askew of The Tipsy Filly Mobile vintage bar, supplied by The Lakes Distillery.

Helen is well known across Cumbria for her old horse trailer which she converted into a vintage style cocktail bar which serves delicious Gin and Prosecco at weddings and festivals. In this live demo, Helen will share her enthusiasm and love for the art of cocktails using locally sourced ingredients. It will include tasters too.

On Saturday , there will be a live performance by Squeeze Box, the much loved 3 piece acoustic band from Penrith. With cutting harmonies and a unique guitar style, several genres of music are incorporated to bring their music to life. Squeeze Box are an off shoot of the local band Absolutely and feature Paul Cullen, Vinny Romano and Gary Atkinson. Squeeze Box cover artists such as the The Killers, Johnny cash, Snow Patrol, The Beatles, Del Amitri, Mumford and Sons with the odd slice of original material thrown in.

On the Sunday, there will a live performance by the very talented singer and guitarist  Eliza Gutteridge, 16 year old singer songwriter who promises to deliver a mixed set of rock, blues and pop covers all with her own personal twist. Eliza also performs her own material based on personal stories and her emotional responses. Now a familiar and accomplished performer on the Cumbrian music scene, Eliza’s popularity secured a solo debut performance at Kendal Calling 2017.

Also playing will be Ben Hughes. Ben is a self-taught guitar maestro beginning at just five years old, Liverpool artist and LIPA graduate Ben is an acoustic guitarist, playing his own songs, pop and electronic dance.
