Bare Wires at Fell Bar

Penrith, Cumbria, UK. Friday 08-December-2023.

Local band Bare Wires were due to appear in the upstairs room at Fell Bar. The plan was to drink beer and listen to live music. Sounds good to me.

The bill was shared with an unplanned act, Jon Bowie (apparently part of Bowie, Beak and Powney), who we saw last weekend at the open mic plug and play at Penrith Players.

He was excellent again. His fingers positively flew across the fretboard. An impressive display of virtuoso guitar playing blues and blues/rock.

Then the main act, Bare Wires, most of whom are regulars in the bar downstairs!

A four piece band (guitar, keyboards, bass and drums) they play Chicago Blues with a bit of soul and funk in the mix.

They played for a couple of hours over two sets with a glass refilling opportunity in between. An excellent way to spend a Friday evening.
