‘It was back in 1978 that local musician Bob Cann had the idea that he would like to start his own folk festival to help revive and preserve the traditions of Dartmoor, and in particular, the traditional music, dance, song and crafts of the area. The first three festivals were held in the grounds of Wood Country House near South Tawton, until 1981 when it moved to its present location in the picturesque village of South Zeal, on the edge of Dartmoor. Over the years the festival has grown making it possible to invite a high standard of folk artist from near and far, whilst maintaining its reputation for being a friendly, traditional festival.‘ Held Mid August.
