Folk Diary coverage: events mostly taking place in the southern half of Devon and/or within an approx. 30 mile radius of Totnes as the crow flies, i.e. including Exeter and Plymouth, and covering Tavistock, Okehampton and Sidmouth for example. It is the main reference for compilation of the Harberton Folk email circulars. Map links (streetmap.co.uk): yield a fully zoomable map. I'm increasingly including postcodes in the venue information for those of you who rely on satnavs.

Harbottle & Jonas Trio play an outdoor (limited ticket) gig in a secret location in South Brent. Harbottle & Jonas Trio are one of the most exciting acts on the UK circuit today, combining a love of the richness of traditional folk with their own original and powerful songwriting. Dave and Freya have developed a distinct and compelling signature sound, blending concertina, harmonium, banjo, stomp box, acoustic guitar and cittern with their beautiful and closely intertwined vocal harmonies. They are joined by fiddle player Annie Baylis, weaving a third close vocal harmony and sensitive playing. Subject matter covers the political and historical as well as the more personal, and their engaging live shows are full of stories as well as songs. People, places and events are brought to life through their intimate, timeless songs and music.
Location will be sent to you with your ticket confirmation: www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/harbottle-jonas-trio-ltd-ticket-gig-at-a-secret-location-south-brent-tickets-119650199969.
