The Rock Inn celebrated 120 years of Langton ownership in 2009. In order to celebrate and thank their customers, a music festival was planned over the last weekend of July that year. Local bands played all weekend in a marquee. Following the success of the festival, it has now become an annual event enjoyed by many.

Cornish singer / songwriter Joe Francis is Winter Mountain.
With support slots for pop icon Seal, Elbow frontman Guy Garvey, Richard Thompson and The Feeling under his belt its safe to say its been an extraordinary 18 months for Winter Mountain.
The Winter Mountain sound is a blend of melodic songs, an extraordinarily soulful voice and heartfelt lyrics, reminiscent of a time before digital recording when the emphasis fell on the importance of live performance and the essence of the songs. It was the quality of the songs and the power of his performances that inspired folk star Cara Dillon and her husband/producer Sam Lakeman to sign Winter Mountain to their label Charcoal Records.
Winter Mountain has toured the length and breadth of the UK and Ireland opening for some of the worlds most talented and high profile artists including Seal, The Feeling, Seth Lakeman, Cara Dillon, Ocean Colour Scene, Reef, Richard Thomson, Rosanne Cash, Leann Rhimes, Grammy award winner Patty Griffin, Ben Ottewell of Gomez, legendary songwriter Benny Gallagher, Paolo Nutini, The Waterboys, Fleet Foxes and many others, and has graced the stage at some of those countries most distinguished venues inc The Ulster Hall (Belfast), Union Chapel (London), The Belfast Waterfront, Vicar Street (Dublin) and headline sets to sell-out crowds at the likes of the infamous Camden Barfly and Dublins Whelans Bar.
Recent times have seen Winter Mountain contributing vocals to Seth Lakeman’s recent ‘Word of mouth’ album as well as sharing a stage with him at Beautiful Days Festival.
