With the annual Lyme Folk Revisited concert just around the corner, another stunning line-up for the main summer event, Lyme Folk Weekend, has been announced.

Opening the festival at the Marine Theatre, in Lyme Regis, on Friday, September 1, will be Jim Moray, nominated for two awards in this year’s BBC Radio 2 folk awards.

For 15 years Jim has been at the forefront of a new movement in English traditional music.

Saturday night headliners will be folk legends Ralph McTell and Wizz Jones, who will be presenting songs from their critically acclaimed album About Time, recorded to celebrate their 50 years of music-making together.

And the Sunday night finale will feature the biggest name on the South West’s folk scene, a solo gig from one half of award-winners Show of Hands, Steve Knightley.

The headliners will be supported by acts who first appeared on other stages at last summer’s festival - singer-songwriter Saskia Griffiths-Moore, traditional virtuoso duo Mitchell and Vincent and the Longest Johns, the brilliant shanty group featured on the BBC programme The Choir with Gareth Malone.

All three support acts will be centre stage for this month’s Lyme Folk Revisited show at the Pilot Boat Inn on Saturday, March 18. Tickets to see all three acts in one amazing evening are just £10, with all proceeds going towards staging the summer festival.

Tickets for both events are available online at www.lymefolk.com, or from Lyme Regis Tourist Information Centre (01297 442138).

Revisited tickets are also available from the Pilot Boat Inn, 1 Bridge Street, Lyme Regis.
