For Live music in Devon...
there is simply nothing like an Acoustic Haven.
Community music at it's best.
Excellent artists... beautiful venue... home-made organic food & locally brewed beers... and entirely run by volunteers for the benefit of 2 land-based projects.
'It's truly a refreshing and spellbinding space' Martha Tilston
ACOUSTIC HAVEN has been hibernating for a couple of years now but there are definitely the sensitive un-furlings of new promises, something like Spring.
THE MUSIC WILL RETURN... and probably to a hidden valley on the edge of Dartmoor National Park...
Watch this space :)
