VIDEO: Lewis Hamilton Band in concert on Bute

The Lewis Hamilton Band became the latest new name on the Bute live music scene when the blues-rock trio made their island debut at Craigmore Bowling Club in Rothesay on Saturday night.

Formed in 2010, the band has appeared on stage in locations as far afield as Shetland and Poland and has played at most of the UK’s biggest blues festivals, including main stage performances at Hebden Bridge and Maryport.
