Sunday was a day to remember at Ramsbottom Festival, with a whole host of bands bringing the weekend to a close in flying fashion.

The day featured Feed The Kid on the Chameleon Stage early on, a six-piece rock 'n' roll band from Manchester with a sound to be explored, opening doors reminiscent of the late sixties and early seventies, singer Curtis's harmonious vocals innately influenced by Jim Morrison and Marc Bolan.

The Chameleon crowd rolled along to their new single, 'In The City', released September 24, lauched at The Live Room, Manchester October 14.

Wille and The Bandits later followed on the Smaller Rooms Stage, with a performance of powerful psychedelia. Their characterful hard rock sound was built on driving drums, intelligent bass and heartfelt guitar, and lap steel work from Wille, his vocal range as wide as audience smiles.

As evening arrived, Kent alt-rockers, Skies, stormed the By The River Stage, the two-piece using their free-flowing and colourful tones to lift witnesses high above the ground, taking their worries away.

Undoubtedly the highlight of the day was Canadian roots band, Gordie MacKeeman & His Rhythm Boys. The four-piece incorporated country, folk, blues and bluegrass music to catch the crowds at the Hills Stage.

Andrew Bennett, Harwood, said: "They've got everyone dancing sober, can you imagine them drunk?"

Gordie, a true showman, comedically pranced about the stage with his violin, entertaining the masses with his tap dancing and fiddling skills, winning the band album awards in Canada.

The versatile musicians, frequently switching and swapping instruments, engaged a family-based audience with textural touches and dynamic delights, telling stories both in their songs, notably in 'The Pickle King Polka', and in between numbers.

The day was topped off with scintillating showings from Ist Ist on the By The River Stage, and a headline set to remember from Fun Lovin' Criminals to close.
