Harberton Village Events Diary 2019

Sold out Saturday 23 March 2019 8pm - Harberton Folk presents Aly Bain & Phil Cunningham in concert at Harberton Parish Hall
A rare opportunity in the South-West to catch two of the best traditional musicians you are ever likely to hear. Having toured together since 1986 to packed concert halls all over the world, multi-award-winning Aly & Phil continue to charm audiences with their stunning music, and on-stage charisma that defies description. Witty and humorous banter sits alongside tunes that tug the heartstrings, and joyous reels and melodies that have feet tapping along. Aly (MBE and Doctor of Music), a founder member of Boys of the Lough, is rightly regarded as Scotland's supreme fiddler- arguably the finest of all time. Aly launched the popular BBC TV series ĎTransatlantic Sessionsí in which he and Phil appear. Phil (MBE) is a world famous accordion player and composer. In recent years Phil's work-load has included many commissions for TV and film and an increasing amount of work as musical director for television and theatrical events. This is just one small video sample of their beautiful music: https://youtu.be/3gBoCBXFZzE. Tickets available now, from John and Jan, or see www.harbertonfolk.co.uk/tickets.htm.

Friday 10th May 2019 8pm - Dartington Morris Men - Church House Inn
The Dartington Morris Men will once again be entertaining with dancing out side the pub, almost certainly followed by music and singing inside afterwards (usually some time after 9pm)

Regular Events
