The Wheezing Duffers

The Wheezing Duffers meet on the third Wednesday of the month (BUT CHECK) to play specifically English folk music and (historically) have been associated with Exmouth for many years. Guests are as welcome to listen as to play and, (this being the year of his cenetenery) a tribute to Derek Ponddodle has been posted on youtube. Look up "Pondoodle’s Gonk" to see them in action then come down and join us!! You will never beat us!! Happy wheezing!

Having a pint of cider in the Bicton…

As it happens I drink a pint of cider in the Bicton regularly albeit about once a month on average. My non-Irish-Trad band is based in XMF (although I reside in South London) and we stay at the singer’s place up at Long Causeway. The Bicton is the first pub’ I stumble across in the morning when setting out to town for my ‘constitutional’. This place has a good ‘folk music’ reputation and is the home of the XMF Shantymen (well Jeff anyway!). I must arrange to be in the XMF area on a Wednesday and attend your session. Cheers!

The first Thursday of the month hosts an excellent music session with musicians from all around the Devon area. Well worth a visit, AND, the pub offers over 7 real ales at any one time, all very well kept, making the visit doubly worth while.

Amazing all inclusive Irish session open to all musicians of all abilities. Held every other Sunday so check with pub before travelling. Follow us on Facebook under Exmouth Sessions.

Re: The Bicton Inn

Irish session 2nd Sunday of the month. We encourage all abilities to join in, play and improve tunes together.

The session has been running since June 2018. We are not high end musicians. We just love Irish music, try to practice together in between sessions and are making progress together. We love it when other musicians come along, join in, support and encourage us.

The Irish community, visitors & locals come together to enjoy tunes & songs.

Check out our Exmouth Irish Session Facebook page.

We would love you to come along and join us.
