Venues - Bushy's Big Wheel Blues Festival


A little bit about Laxey

As the songs says.. ‘Laxey was a mining village many years ago…’and before that it was a fishing village. The name comes from the Vikings who obviously must have found salmon in the river running down to the coast below their ‘snow mountain’. Now it is a great place to live and work with a thriving community, primary school, businesses and pubs, restaurants, cafes and take-aways. See Laxey Commissioners web site for more information, a map and photographs:
