As well as attracting iconic females from art forms across the whole creative spectrum to Kendal, the Brewery's Women's Arts International Festival has introduced artistes previously unknown to some.
For me, it was Canadian Rachelle van Zanten and what a buzz she created.
With an exquisite voice and guitar-playing skills to match, she charmed the pants off the Brewery Arts Centre's audience, sharing the bill with one of the UK's finest singer-songwriters, Angie Palmer.
Rachelle explained how hearing Led Zeppelin 2 changed her life after being brought up on gospel and country music.
And that Plant, Page, Bonham and Jones influence, mixed with her penchant for penning a stirring tune, is what makes her music stand out and should propel her right to the very top.
What struck me about Rachelle most was when she slipped the bottleneck on to her finger, cranked up her acoustic guitar and rocked, she was in a different league altogether.
Replacing the more mellow country and folky side of her extraordinary talent, with a more commanding funky blues riff-laden Rachelle, which, not only added an extra dimension and texture to her own performance but brought to the fore, the powerhouse pairing of drummer Ged Lynch and bass Hamish Tesco.
