Join Us on Facebook September 2020!
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 have to announce the postponement of Didmarton 2020 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 on our Facebook page over the usual Didmarton festival weekend. Live music, plus videos of bands that should have been performing this year and videos from previous festivals, that we can all watch together at the same time. It won’t be the same, but at least we’ll be able to connect with each other in our love of bluegrass music.
The current plan is for there to be a concert slot on Friday evening and two on Saturday, an afternoon and an evening session. These will consist of some live streaming music and video watch parties that we can all watch and have a virtual chat during. Some will just be individual songs, some full sets. There will more information about the virtual concerts during the week as we finalise the schedule and other fun posts you can get involved in, so watch this space.
We hope you will join us to mark the 32nd 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’.
