Have a look at http://www.2leftfeet.co.uk/ and "Diary dates" and "Sessions".

In addition to what's shown there, probably just outside your distance limit though, there's a singaround (mainly unaccompanied, traditional and very good singers) at the Volunteer in Sidmouth on the first Wednesday of the month.

You could also look at http://www.harbertonfolk.co.uk/ which is a great site run by a friend of mine. If you are in the Okehampton area, check whether anything is happening in the pubs at South Zeal. You might catch up with members of the Dartmoor Pixie Band there, or Bill Murray, a great local character and singer.

Hi there and welcome to Okehampton,
I have just taken over the Folk Session in The Devonshire Arms in Sticklepath which is 3 miles away from Okehampton. The sessions have a long tradition of music and song; Dartmoor-based, but all welcome into a "characterful" old 16th Century pub. This is the first Sunday in each month from about 8pm.

The Wren Trust runs sessions in The Fountain, in the middle of Okehampton on the last Sunday of each month ( same times).          Some of the same friends/singers/players, but each has its own character and direction. This links to the Baring Gould Festival in October, if you want to look up more on their websites.

Bill Murray is also now running a session in the Kings Arms in South Zeal (4 miles from Oke) on the 2nd Sunday of each month which I gather is going well, but I haven't been able to get there yet.

So, lots going on in Folk Performance down yer on Dartimoor.

Come on down a few more times.

Derek
