Friday November 17th Geoff Lakeman Doors 7pm Devoran Village Hall
A Cornishman who has lived on Dartmoor for 40 years, has been described as “A stalwart of the West Country Folk scene and the father of a virtual folk dynasty.” He’s the dad of Sean, Sam and Seth Lakeman, who are all internationally renowned folk musicians. They began playing as children in a family band with Geoff and their violinist mum, Joy. Geoff is a leading exponent of the rare Crane Duet concertina. He performs self-written and West Country songs, English, Irish and Scottish folk and other music as varied as Jimmie Rodgers, the Louvin Brothers, Richard Thompson and Randy Newman. He’s also one of the few to play 1920’s/ 30’s jazz on an authentic 1920’s instrument. His smooth tenor vocals and unique concertina accompaniment have won him plaudits and fans over the years but it has only been since retiring from a long career as a Fleet Street Journalist that Geoff has truly spread his wings musically. 2016 saw the release of Geoff’s debut album ‘After All These Years’. With a stellar line up of musical family and friends it showcases his talents perfectly and illustrates the high regard and affection in which he is held
Tickets £10.50 Please bring your own refreshments. Tea and coffee available.

Wednesday November 22nd Devoran Gardening Club from 7.30pm Devoran Village Hall
Unfortunately, we have had to change our speaker, Mr Pocock, who was booked to give a talk on roses. He will be recuperating following hospital treatment and sends his apologies. As a result we have asked him to come to talk at a meeting in the new year.
But not all is lost. We are delighted to welcome horticulturist Ian Martin, who is from the Eden Project where he is technical advisor and consultant.
Ian is a busy man but has agreed to come to Devoran when I am sure we will give him a warm welcome. He will be talking about the Eden Project from 1996 to the present, a most interesting subject.
An extract about Ian Martin taken from the Eden Project Website says:
“Was first involved with planning of the Eden Project, then curator for the plant nursery, the specialist for outside project collaboration, especially in areas of the world with a hot summers and a dry season. This had followed on from 23 years in Latin America and more especially in Africa – always preferring to work on small scale rural development involving plants and people.”
Why not bring a friend and introduce them to the club? We hope you will all be able to attend and help continue making our club enjoy the success it has experienced over past two years. Please do not be put off by the dark winter nights – I am sure anyone having difficulty in attending or getting home will find a willing helper among us all.
