The latest instalment of their ‘flying folk’ evenings will bring together three diverse and talented folk acts from the south west together on on Friday, September 14

Your compere for this intriguing evening will be local rising folk star Jemima Farey.

Lightgarden are a highly original acoustic music ensemble, who play Pan-European folk and acoustic music.

Sometimes a trio, sometimes a quartet, the band members have various UK and European backgrounds.

Their highly acclaimed brand of folk and traditional music ranges from the mellow to the manic.

Tamar (Barney Kenny & Oliver Wheeldon) are a contemporary folk duo who met three years ago at a music session in the Drake Manor Inn, Buckland Monachorum.

Mad Dog Mcrea invited them to play at a few of the group’s gigs and things took off from there - the band is now booked to play most nights of the week.

Rosie May is a Watchet-based singer/songwriter with a beguiling voice from the past.
