Otterton Mill has kicked off its summer music season with a sold-out gig.

Steve Knightley, best known as a member of acclaimed Topsham folk duo Show of Hands, wowed the audience at the Mill’s intimate courtyard setting with material from his new solo album, Off the Beaten Track.

If you missed out, the good news is there are four more exciting musical performances to follow during the coming weeks.

The first of these will take place on July 24, when the Mill is visited by Gigspanner, a trio led by Steeleye Span’s legendary fiddle player Peter Knight.

This will be followed on July 31 by Maurice Dickson with Catherine Ashcroft, returning to the venue as Irish duo Mochara.

Budleigh-based Ian Briggs, with the AC Cobras, will be appearing on August 7, and celebrated songwriter Martyn Joseph will be performing on August 21.

Full details of all the concerts, for which the music will start at 8pm, can be found by visiting www.ottertonmill.com/music/music-night-listings.

Tickets can be booked by calling 01395 568521, or by visiting the Mill’s shop in the main Mill building.
