Featured Gig

Tim Edey     


at Colyford Memorial Hall

Saturday 28th January 2017 7.30pm

The incredible Tim Edey returns to East  Devon....  Why?... well here is what people were saying after previous years' concerts at Jurassic Folk:

"Tim is the best thing we've seen and heard for -probably - the past 20 years! And Tim takes our breath away with his musicianship and

joie-de-vivre! His personality on stage (as well as off) is gorgeous -


And... ".. a quite staggering display of virtuoso musicianship in the form of BBC2 Folk Awards 2012 double winner Tim Edey. A really humble, genuine and decent guy. His command of both melodeon and guitar was quite breathtaking."

Having won both categories in which he was nominated at the 2012 BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards, "Best Musician" and "Best Duo" (with Brendan Power), Tim Edey is one of the finest multi-instrumental players of his generation in the worldwide Celtic music scene. A virtuoso on both acoustic guitar and button accordion, Tim's incredible musical ear and total technical command allows him to play the most demanding instrumentals and improvise freely in any style you throw at him.

Although Tim is a native of Kent, his mother is Irish, and he was captivated by Celtic music from an early age. You can check him out at and on numerous YouTube clips, including some from Jurassic Folk concerts.

Advance tickets £10. On the door, if any left, they will be £12.

It all happens at Colyford Memorial Hall, Swan Hill Rd, Colyford, Colyton, EX24 6QJ (Easy Parking) with doors open at 7.00pm.


Or by phoning 01297 20064

Or in person at Colyford Post Office Shop




 So it won't necessarily be folk and it won't necessarily be East Devon, but if we think it will be of interest it will be here. We aim to publicise gigs, events and folk clubs. We want to promote local talent , venues and music

So if you know of something that should be on these pages let me know  Jolly
