Two days, five bands, dozens of folk sessions and countless quirky stalls, aka Sidmouth Folk Week (finally)! From the northern melodies of the Wilson Family to the high energy, house-infused Gaelic maelstrom of the Peatbog Faeries, the music was amazing – and that's just the paid gigs. Wandering around, bumping into spontaneous busking sessions around every corner and in every pub. That's what makes the folk scene; that and the eclectic, welcoming people it attracts.
But it's not over until the thin, folky girl sings; tomorrow evening we return for one of my favourite bands, CoCo and the Butterfields. Excited!
