Enjoy acoustic music at its best as the Seafront Session Festival makes waves in Cleethorpes.

After the huge success of last year's event, the day is back at Mucky Muldoons, on the Kingsway in the resort, on Sunday.

The Seafront Sessions, run by local musicians, are held fortnightly at the venue, but every year acts come together for an all-day free show.

The bill includes popular band The Finest Hour, who recently released the new single Keep Your Chin Up Kid, with Dock Tower Records.

Also included in the line-up is  talented singer-songwriter Sam Simmons from Cleethorpes band The Accord, and artists Andy McKinney, Sam Carlton, Keith Easton, Roger Beard, Strummin Steve Jackson, Les Wood, Morris and Sam Hockaday.

Playing for the girls is songwriter and guitarist Shannon Reilly and Victoria Edwards.

The Finest Hour's Paul Kavanagh and Rob Bywater will also perform solo sets during the day.

Rob said: "Many of the acts played at last year's festival, which was a huge success. The place was packed for the majority of the day and we managed to raise £500 by taking donations for charity.

"This year we'll be taking donations for local lad Matt Snow's latest charity fundraising project, a Haiti Earthquake charity, following his visit earlier this year.

"The atmosphere was amazing last year and it was honestly one of the best gigs we've put on in Grimsby and Cleethorpes.

"All of the acts are local, apart from Preston songwriter Andy McKinney, and we have quite a variety of musical styles, including folk, blues, indie, rock, ska and acappella."

The Mucky Muldoons pub is a popular, intimate venue in Cleethorpes for close-up acoustic shows.

And it is often used to put the town's talent on a pedestal and celebrate the skills of local and national musicians.

This is a must night for any lover of stripped down indie, rock and blues music. And to top it off, it's all for a good cause.

The sessions start Sunday from noon to 11.30pm, music starts at 1pm at Mucky Muldoon's, Kingsway, Cleethorpes
