Teignmouth Folk Festival News

Update from Granny's Attic;

'Unfortunately George Sansome is unwell and unable to play for us in Teignmouth tomorrow evening (Friday 21st June).

Cohen Braithwaite-Kilcoyne and Lewis Wood are two thirds of Granny's Attic and are really looking forward to still entertaining us all with their amazing tunes and songs and will still deliver a great quality performance as always which will be thoroughly enjoyable. They will do sets of separate material and play some together at the end of the evening.

Teignmouth Folk Festival and Granny's Attic are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.
This was difficult to foresee and of course, most importantly, we wish George well.'

We still have tickets for the afternoon Family Ceilidh on Sunday 23rd June (5:30pm to 8:30pm)

- email: info@teignmouthfolkfestival.co.uk to get your tickets! -
