The Storm live at The Cove Cafe Bar in Hope Cove

The Storm hits Hope Cove

POWERFUL folk roots trio The Storm play a special Easter Saturday set at The Cove on March 26.

Formed in 2011 by Kingsbridge-based Martin Jackson, Ian Feetenby and Ian Barnett after meeting at an open-mic night, their songs are based of experiences of the landscape, waters and people in Devon.

There’s an acute consciousness of the county’s traditions, folklore and legends within their lyrics.

Two albums ‘Into The Eye’ and ‘Deep Blue’ have seen them raise thousands of pounds for local charities.

And returning to the road recently, they’ve been greatly encouraged by the generous receptions they have often enjoyed around South Devon.

Hope Cove should be the perfect spot to listen to their enthralling music.

Live from 9.30pm, admission is free.

Paul Henshaw live at The Cove Hope Cove Devon

Folk punk fest in Hope Cove

SHROPSHIRE’S answer to Frank Turner, Paul Henshaw returns to The Cove armed with his powerful brand of acoustic rock ’n’ roll folk punk.

Following last year’s quality gig, the singer-songwriter is back for more in Hope Cove on Saturday, March 12.

He’s a gig junkie, playing from the far-flung reaches of Wisconsin coffee houses and beach festivals to sweaty punk gigs in Eastern Europe and China and of course the length and breadth of his beloved UK.

Also hailed as a cross between Billy Bragg and Tom Robinson for passion and meaning, he wears his heart on his sleeve – winning over crowds during support slots for Newton Faulkner, John Otway, Attila the Stockbroker and The Blockheads.

Expect to get truly sucked in.

Live from 9.30pm, admission is free.

Music Meal Deals will once again be in operation – booking is advised.
