FOLK music fans can make up for the disappointment of the Wessex Folk Festival being cancelled for the second year in a row.

Folk-Americana act Roswell will share a bill with The Last Inklings at a performance on August 6 at Osmington Village Hall to raise much-needed funds for next year's Wessex Folk Festival.

Roswell is made up of Zoё Wren and Jasmine Watkiss, a folk-Americana duo from London, who have been likened to First Aid Kit and the Indigo Girls.
