The vital signs are good for this year’s Sidmouth FolkWeek with tickets are selling well, above expectations for this point in the year.

Sidmouth FolkWeek 2013 promises to bring the very finest in roots music to East Devon’s beautiful coastal resort. Just some of the highlights include: the legendary Nic Jones Trio, new festival patrons Show of Hands, enigmatic Australian choir Spooky Men’s Chorale, Celtic giants Capercaillie, music from the Atlantic fringe from The Unwanted, first lady of folk Maddy Prior, energetic Quebecois roots of Le Vent du Nord, string masters Alasdair Fraser & Natalie Haas, breathtaking Flook, singing fiddler supergroup Carthy, Hardy, Farrell & Young, the fusion of original Irish dance and new music in Sciorr:Staged, the mighty Lau, big- hearted Celtic fusionistas Peatbog Faeries, dance-band trailblazers Blowzabella and the joyful Jaipur Kawa Brass Band.
Pre-festival specials: It’s worth getting in soon for tickets for a concert version of Private Peaceful performed as a unique reading by celebrated children’s author Michael Morpurgo – following on from last year’s early sell out of his War Horse - plus songs from harmonic tour de force Coope, Boyes & Simpson (2nd Aug) and Twitter Titters – the new show from comedy writer, performer and national treasure Barry Cryer, accompanied by Colin Sell (1st Aug).
