Always something new and different - that seems to be the continuing saga of Jurassic Folk. We never know who s going to turn up, be they performers or audience, so we live in a constant state of surprise.
Always something new and different - that seems to be the continuing saga of Jurassic Folk.
We never know who's going to turn up, be they performers or audience, so we live in a constant state of surprise. This month, when we met at the Grove, in Seaton, on Wednesday, February 17, was, to a certain extent, a blessed relief after the rather hectic time we had over Christmas.
What we lacked in quantity, we certainly made up for in quality. Amongst the performers, Ted, the bard himself, was in cracking form with great songs and brilliant comic poetry, Rob Wheaton was sublime, and Machine Gun Mike G was slightly more relaxed compared to his frenetic performance last time.
Frances, Beer's own bard, kept our ribs suitably tickled with her endless stories of mysterious and strange happenings round her house in Beer.
A welcome new face was Andrew Mycroft, who runs the Honiton Folk Dance Club, and he gave us some enervating dance tunes on the accordion, which certainly got our feet tapping.
But to next month, because some of our team have told me that various plans are developing, and there may be even more surprises coming, could be exciting. As always, everyone is welcome, performers and audience alike, admission is free and more info is available by phoning (01297) 20064 or checking out the website, at www.eastdevonfolk.org
