Music was back on the Meadows last weekend as the inaugural Stamford Music Festival attracted crowds of visitors.

The genre-spanning event began on Friday night with jazz and blues-themed performances from musicians including Sara Hawkes and Bianca and the Top Cats.

Saturday afternoon wasa showcase for new singers and songwriters, and later on the tempo stepped up a notch with performances from The Gangsters and One Eyed Cats.

Sunday began with a number of artists from the world of classical music before Stamford’s own indie-folk favourites The Tin Pigeons rounded off the weekend in style.

The festival was organised by the Market Square Group. Director Paul Kennedy said: “Stamford Meadows provided an idyllic backdrop to our inaugural Stamford Music Festival and we were blessed with some lovely summer weather and a great atmosphere.

“We would like to thank the music lovers of Stamford for their support over the weekend and, of course, to all the bands, singers and artists who played on our stage over the three days.”

As well as the music, there was also children’s entertainment, a craft market, and stalls offering a variety of food and drinks.
