Join Us on Facebook September 2021!
For one of the UK’s premier Bluegrass, Americana and Old-Time music festivals.
We are certain that you are all well aware of the ongoing situation with the Covid19 pandemic, so we don’t expect it to come as any surprise that we sadly had to announce the postponement of Didmarton 2021 until next year. It was not an easy decision or one that the committee wanted to have to make, but as with so many festivals and events this year we are out of options and up against deadlines. With government guidelines as they stand and the pandemic continuing, there is simply no way it can happen.
As we can’t gather to watch music, chat, catch up and play music together this year, we will be hosting a virtual festival evening on our Facebook page on the usual Didmarton festival Friday. Two of our committee members, David and Clare Rozzell, will once again be broadcasting a live virtual concert from 7pm on our Facebook page, as part of their Folkgrass Lockdown Sessions. This was very popular last year as we can all watch together at the same time, raise a glass or two and have a chat while listening to the music. It won’t be quite the same, but at least we’ll be able to connect with each other in our love of Didmarton Bluegrass Festival.
We will also post some videos from previous festivals during the weekend.
We hope you will join us to mark the 33rd Didmarton weekend on our Facebook page and enjoy some wonderful music together, even if we can’t all be under one marquee roof this year.
Roll on Friday and the Didmarton Bluegrass Online Festival!
Do not despair, we will be be back next year with our usual festival fun!
Stay safe, look out for each other and keep on pickin’.
