Assuming that by 23.12.2012 the world hasn’t been eaten by a feathered serpent of inconceivable proportions, inhaled by a vast goat from Zargon 12 (where the goats grow uncommonly large on gargantuan dandelion leaves) or consumed in a terrible fiery inferno (which isn’t looking too unlikely right now), you should really try and make your way to Chagford, on the edge of Dartmoor, for this unparalleled feast of Yuletide entertainment and revelry in a distinctly old-school style:
We are delighted to be featuring:
- Telling the Bees, beautiful twisted folk (as you’ll know, being a blog-reader of excellent musical taste)
- Krasa, local pedlars of marvellous klezmer-Balkan-gypsy tunes, featuring our own Rima Staines, plus Lisa Rowe who played at the Tales from the Wagon Steps storytelling in May and Tim Heming on double bass and clarinet (possibly not at the same time)
- The Kestor String Band, with their most excellent purple-moorgrass-music, laconic apocalyptic tunes in a bluegrass vein…
- Me, as master of ceremonies, and telling a story that may (or may not) be one that’s been blogged here in times of yore…
You would be a Fool to miss it!
