Welcome to South Brent Folk.
Based in the Devon village of South Brent on the southern tip of Dartmoor we host folk concerts, a folk festival, workshops, ceilidhs and other events through the year.
Our aim is to promote folk music song and dance in South Brent, providing opportunities for top class folk acts to come to South Brent and be seen and heard by local residents, at the same time attracting folk from outside the village.
