SUMMER Sundays are back at the Brewery with one of the region's most popular groove-laden outfits, The Seals, opening the series.

Drummer John Powney and the cracking five piece will be on stage at the Kendal arts centre this weekend (Sunday, July 21) with their designed for dancing set featuring classic songs picked from six decades of great music.

Following on in the Sunday season of outdoor gigs will be Lancaster-based ska and rock steady band, The Guns of Navarone, playing tunes from the golden age of ska on Sunday, July 28, performing relaxed and infectious original Jamaican dance music from the likes of the Skatalites, Don Drummond and more.

On Sunday, August 4, the spotlight falls on highly regarded young singer/songwriter, Molly Warburton.

Her debut album, released in early 2015, drew on her early influences of Fleetwood Mac, Simon and Garfunkel, and KT Tunstall. Later in 2015, her single Not Your Enemy showcased a more mature songwriting style, with added contemporary influences, including London Grammar and Hozier.

Since, Molly has released her latest single Hallucinate, which has apparently sparked plenty of interest across the music industry.

Alongside her band she has performed all over the UK, into Europe and the United States. Her most notable recent gigs include The Borderline, Scala and O2 Academy Islington in London, the main stage at Kendal Calling festival, and Melkweg at Amsterdam.

Another local favourite bring some high energy tunes to the Brewery on August 11.

Midnight Landing were previously known as Ska Wars, and formed in mid 2010. They had a break for a few years then reformed as a six piece with heaps of new sounds and exciting live show.

Their influences range from The Ruts, The Clash, The Specials, 10ft Ganja Plant, Rancid and during the Brewery gig the band will be showcasing their new EP.

Come August 18, and South Lakeland's Boomerang play rock and pop covers from the 1960s to the present day. The current line up of Peter Fitzpatrick, bass and vocals; Matt Price, keyboards; John Clark, drums; Peter Kassell, guitar and vocals; and sound engineer, Derek Howarth, has been together since 2017, but all the players have umpteen years experience in bands playing far and wide.

To round up the Sunday specials on August 25, highly regarded power trio Bowie, Beak and Sharkey perform a terrific mix of blues and rock.

Meanwhile, as well as providing top sounds each Sunday, the Brewery will be catering for food lovers too. General manager Kerry Gossio said they were excited to introduce a barbecue into the Brewery garden for this year’s Summer Sundays Festival, along with a can bar and draught larger bar: "It will be quick and easy to enjoy a drink while kicking back and listening to the fantastic line up of live bands. We will also have games and activities for our younger audience to enjoy."

Summer Sundays run from 2pm-4pm.
