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!
