Jurassic Folk plans to celebrate its first anniversary in style with its first ever invited star guest.

KTB, aka Katy Bennett, is a superb young singer/songwriter who is carving out a great reputation all over the country. Interestingly, she was using the initials before KT Tunstall (with whom she has shared a concert stage), as she has been singing and playing in public since she was 13, and was a finalist in the BBC Radio 2 Young Folk Awards a few years back.

Still only 24, she has occupied prominent spots in major festivals such as Truck, Priddy Folk Festival, Stainsby, Oxford, Fishguard, Wallingford and many more

She has appeared with some well-known artists including Eliza Carthy, Martin Simpson, Karine Polwart and Back of the Moon.

Apart from her solo career she is also part of the fabulous female folk quartet Little Sister, and also sings, dances and plays (whatever she can!) with Danny and The Champions of the World.

Katy will be supported by the usual exciting cast of regulars and a great night is in prospect, so getting there early, particularly for performers, will be a good idea.

It all starts at 8pm at the Grove, Seaton, on Wednesday, May 21,

and is as usual free.

More details about the event and the group is available by calling (01297) 20064 or check out www.eastdevonfolk.org.
