Folk gigs on Isle of Wight announced

Music lovers on the Isle of Wight will be preparing of a special treat this month as Karen Tweed heads to the island.

The folk singer is set to perform two shows on the island following on from a gig in February this year.

Tweed is due to play at the Old Church in Bonchurch on August 19th 2010 and the next day she will be appearing in Freshwater to give renditions of some of her songs at Dimbola Lodge.

Her gigs come after she told her promoter that she would love to play at more atmospheric venues on the island, the Isle of Wight County Press reported.

She will be joined at the shows by award-winning singer Jackie Oates, who is the sister of performer Jim Moray.

Oates is a former member of Rachel Unthank and the Winterset and has previously scooped two BBC 2 Folk Awards.

Visitors planning to stay on the Isle of Wight this month could spend a day at the 36th Annual Steam Show over the bank holiday weekend.
