Folk South West's annual West Country Carols Weekend, takes place between November 7 and November 9 in Sidmouth.
This is a rare opportunity for singers and instrumentalists to work on traditional Christmas material gathered from across the South West. Under tutored guidance, singers and musicians have a fun filled weekend of learning, exploring and performing music from the oral tradition and the manuscripts of the West Gallery era.
Director of Folk South West, Eddie Upton describes the weekend as "One of the highlights of Folk South West's year" and finds it particularly "inspiring how the musicians and singers return home to share their experiences and freshly learnt music with friends, local choirs and bands"
Friday's lucky arrivals will be entertained at the Celebrity Folk Club featuring Ed Rennie, Tom Addison, Barry Lister & Sean O'Shea with support from Moira Craig, Sarah Morgan, Carolyn Robson, Paul Sartin, Eddie Upton and Peter Wilton. Saturday provides a feast of Workshops and an informal evening session of songs and tunes. On Sunday more workshops will be rounded off with a short afternoon concert of the weekend's work.
