Fallen Cedars are rooted on the edge of Dartmoor.  A band created from  a diverse range of musical backgrounds and creative wishes.  We play  original songs and a few obscure covers.  They say: "Our music is uplifting, languid,  lilting and melodic; a sound of indie folk mixed with lounge; acoustic and electric."

Musical influences vary from modern folk and indie to blues and jazz: not definitive but here's a few names - The Waifs, The Staves, Fairport Convention, First Aid Kit.

See the Fallen Cedars website for more about the band.

Certificate: PG   Runtime: 107 min.

A behind-the-scenes look at the life of author A. A. Milne and the creation of the Winnie the Pooh stories inspired by his son Christopher R. Milne.

The film gives a rare glimpse into the relationship between beloved children's author A. A. Milne (Domhnall Gleeson) and his son Christopher Robin, whose toys inspired the magical world of Winnie the Pooh.

Along with his mother Daphne (Margot Robbie), and his nanny Olive, Christopher Robin and his family are swept up in the international success of the books; the enchanting tales bringing hope and comfort to England after the First World War. But with the eyes of the world on Christopher Robin, what will the cost be to the family?

Mitchell and Vincent are an acoustic duo with guitars and fiddles.

And David and Graham make their own instruments.

Knowing that they are both guitar makers, you are asking “Do they play their own guitars?” Dave does indeed play a guitar he made, It’s a wonderful sounding nylon strung classical guitar with a cedar top – they’ve done so many gigs in the last few years that it’s starting to look a bit tatty – but luckily Dave has a couple more he’s made as spares for when the time comes to retire the old girl! Graham finally got round to making himself a violin, which is now one of his gigging violins. They're both making more instruments should you be interested in buying one.

And the music they play?  Take a listen at Mitchell and Vincent Music.
