Well it's been festivals and gigs galore over the scorching summer and we're delighted at Cherry Towers how well the new songs are going down with you lot and the new EP Cherry Pickin' has been selling very well indeed.

Cherry guested with Bernie Marsden when they headlined at Maryport Blues Festival a couple of weeks ago, pics below thanks to Tony Winfield. Cherry will be on tour with Bernie this November, dates are on the gig page, and is a guest artist on his new album due out next Spring.

Cherry and the band had a fantastic set last weekend at their fourth Cambridge Rock Festival appearance where they managed to fill the Stage 2 marquee at 11am Saturday morning! Lots of new faces to see them aswell and we've since heard that Cherry and the band gathered one of the biggest crowds over the whole weekend out of the 40 or so bands that played. Check out pictures and footage below thanks to Roger Allen and Neil McCarthy. The song in the video is Meet Me At The Station which is taken from the new EP Cherry Pickin'.


Cherry also guested with Del Bromham later that day, they performed the duet they recorded together on Del's new album, Nine Yards due out this September.
