Tamsin Waley-Cohen is an outstanding violinist with a major British and international career, playing with top orchestras worldwide, as well as being a member of the Albion String Quartet. Known to West Country audiences from her many appearances at the Festival since its early days and from her own Honeymead Festival, she knows and loves the West Country well.

This is an exciting time for the Two Moors Festival with Tamsin on board to lead it in this celebratory 20th season and to further develop it in the future. This builds on the outstanding work of the Festival and its founder, Penny Adie who, with her husband John Adie, established it to serve the people of Exmoor, Dartmoor and Devon in the face of the dreadful foot and mouth outbreaks of 2001, becoming the major music festival of the South West.

Tamsin Waley-Cohen, Artistic Director:
"I am thrilled to be working with the Two Moors Festival, a festival that I have had the pleasure of playing in since its very inception, and whose home is some of the most beautiful and wildest landscape in England."

Penny Adie, Founding Artistic Director:
"She has all that it takes to propel the organisation on to the next phase of its journey."

Richard Fletcher, Chairman, the Two Moors Festival:
"Tamsin is the ideal choice for our new Artistic Director and she is already bubbling over with new ideas."
