22 September 2018, Bratton Clovelly. Details to follow. We had a lovely gig in the village hall in Autumn 2016, as part of this beautiful village’s thriving arts programme, and we look forward to a return visit.  www.brattonclovellyfestival.com

6 October 2018, Ilsington Village Hall, TQ13 9RG. A very welcome return visit to this delightful village on Dartmoor, near Mike’s home town of Bovey Tracey. More details to follow.  www.ilsingtonvillagehall.co.uk

20 October 2018, Holcombe Burnell Church, Longdown, near Exeter, EX6 7RZ. We are delighted to be making a return visit to this beautiful church. It was an evening to remember last time, with lots of candles giving that very special atmosphere, and the little church packed with enthusiastic music lovers. 7.30pm. There will be a bar. Tickets , including wine and cheese, £10 from Jane: 01392 811246 and Sue : 01392 811816. A Villages in Action Event. More info and booking at the Villages In Action website.  

Dart Songs14 November 2018, ‘Dart Songs’ in Stoke Gabriel. An evening with local historian, John Risdon, with his fascinating tales of the history of the Dart estuary, with accompanying beautiful photos, with songs and tunes from the ‘Dart Songs’ album which Steve recorded with Blue Jewel, performed by Cosgrave & Banks. Details to follow, or click here.

16 November 2018, Brixham Library. Details to follow. Due to popular demand! We are delighted to have been invited back to this entrepreneurial library… Well, ‘library’, yes, in a sense… but only in the sense that Clark Kent is just an awkward guy with big specs, or Bruce Wayne is just a multi-billionaire with chips on his shoulders… For, by night, this ordinary-seeming library transforms by a magical alchemical process, whose secret is known only to a revered few within the inner sanctum, into the Brixham music venue for those-in-the-know. So keep your ear to the ground, and with any luck, you might come by a ticket to hear the South Devon folk duo that many people are talking about at South Devon’s’ most exclusive-illusive venue…
