Harberton Folk's Information Service
for traditional music, song & dance in Southern Devon
Site updated 23 March 2021
Harberton Folk is 'powered by' and recommends:
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
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.

March 2021 7.30pm - Harbottle & Jonas - Live stream from Barrel House Ballroom
To celebrate the release of new album The Beacon, Harbottle & Jonas invite all to raise a glass and join them for a live stream from one of their favourite venues – The Barrel House in Totnes – starting at 7.30pm (GMT) on the 26th of March via their YouTube channel - https://bit.ly/TheBeaconLiveStream
The venue, which hosted a sell-out launch for previous album The Sea is My Brother in 2019, may be missing the live audience, but the trio’s dynamic performances and the ability to interact via a live chat function, ensure that none of the power nor intimacy of their regular live show will be missed as the band perform The Beacon in its entirety, track by track, as well as favourites from previous albums.
Dave and Freya will be joined by fiddle player Annie Baylis who is an integral part of the album’s flavour. This is a fantastic chance to experience the Harbottle & Jonas Trio performing The Beacon, “an album of exceptional quality” (FATEA), captured with high quality video and audio, and all from the comfort of your own home.

Described as “nothing short of sublime” by FRUK, The Beacon is released on Friday the 26th of March
