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 2021. 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 looking to host something like a virtual festival on our Facebook page over the usual Didmarton festival weekend. 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. (We are investigating a simultaneous broadcast here, on our website too, so keep an eye out for any news)
Do not despair, we will be be back next year!
Stay safe, look out for each other and keep on pickin’.
