Join us for the return of Acoustic Haven in our stunning timber framed barn at The Hillyfield. Wood Fires, Sheepskins & Forest food. Two of the finest fiddlers in the country...
Alastair Caplin and Ewan Mcdonald 

Two of the best violinists we know join forces to offer a deep dive into their shared Gaelic tradition. Expect a sensational performance of heart-wrenchingly beautiful laments on fiddles, guitar, mandolin and bouzouki interspersed with blisteringly fast tune sets. Gaelic song from the duo's native Gàidhealtachd feature heavily in the set, with poignant harmonium-accompanied 'rain Mòra (great songs) interspersed with rapid tongue-twisting pùirt-a-beul (Gaelic mouth-music).

MUSIC

Long ago.... in a church on a hill.​
Now in a Woodland on Dartmoor

Acoustic Haven ran for over 10 years at Bowden House and St John's Church. A top quality live music night every month through the winter.
Following 4 years of rest (or more like 4 years of back breaking work) we are now re-launching with occasional events at The Hillyfield Woodland Farm on Dartmoor.


THE HILLYFIELD www.thehillyfield.co.uk
The Hillyfield manages 46acres of mixed woodland and pasture on the south of Dartmoor National Park for environmental and community benefit. They are caught in a Public Inquiry with the National Park planners and need help to stand up for small-woodland restoration. To find out more, volunteer, or buy home-grown timber or firewood then visit www.thehillyfield.co.uk
THE LIVING PROJECTS www.facebook.com/thelivingprojects
The Living Projects is an umbrella group for individuals and organisations in the Totnes area who care about a sustainable future. They look after a 5acre growing project on the edge of Dartington and hold occasional events.
