Sidmouth Folk Festival

Tuesday, 06 August 2019 by Bob Barrett

The tried and tested formula in the Folk Dance programme – big mornings, interesting afternoons and fun evenings of folk dance – is back again for 2019.

Big Mornings include American dance workshops with DIANE SILVER (USA) with WILD RIDE and the ENGLISH CONTRA DANCE BAND. English dance workshops with VICTORIA YEOMANS supported by MOLLIE AND DAVE, then STUART MARSDEN with BOLDWOOD.

Afternoon sessions with Irish Set from MAGGIE DANIEL and PERFECT CURE. Scandinavian Dance from MEGAN HATTO with CHRIS DYER. A long (two workshops each afternoon) hard look at square dance and calling: The Big Square Thing with IVAN AITKEN and JEREMY CHILD and THE LINDA GAME TRIO. Early Dance and music with HELEN RICHARDS and her assorted troupe of dancers and musicians. Beginners are in the safe hands of AMY BURTON with meg’n’mor playing. Plus a very special pair of weekend workshops on Bhangra and Bollywood with AVTAR INDIAN DANCE.
