Kitchen concerts  return  

The first of this years Kitchen Koncerts held by Peter and Hilary was a great success , with Jim Causley providing a hugely entertaining evening. Approximately 28 people shared in this intimate gig being able to get up close to the performer, and learn the stories behind the songs. Many thanks to Peter and Hilary for organising it and providing the excellent food and drinks. Looking forward to the next evenings . 

There are 2 more Kitchen concerts at Bishopswood Seaton scheduled for  June, and July

Watch this space for more details 

 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
