Thread Name: Sidmouth Folk Week - New Director
Subject: RE: Sidmouth Folk Week - New Director
"However until this thread I'd not personally been aware that the festival's finances had stabilised under her administration - having been a performer at the 2004 festival when Steve Heap stood down and a lot of people didn't even think there would *be* a 2005 Sidmouth, for that alone Joan deserves the respect and thanks of everyone who loves The First Week In August."

Steve, Joan took up her post at Sidmouth in 2009...just for the record. She has *not* been there from the start of Sidmouth Folk Week. Up to that point Eddie Upton had been the Artistic Director. He left to concentrate on Folk South West.
