The Owl Light Trio (pictured here on left) are Jim Penny (concertina), Jane Griffiths (fiddle/viola) and Colin Fletcher (guitar). They mix fine musicianship with inventive and interesting arrangements of traditional and original tunes, and can enchant with gentle, intricate music, or belt them out with the best of them. We’re hugely looking forward to sharing the bill with them on this mini-tour.
On Saturday 8 September 2018 we played at Rhydycroesau Village Hall in a concert to celebrate the release of our CD Crossings. The concert included special guests Jock and Lucas Tyldesley, and the second half of the evening began with a fine set of tunes played expertly on the harp by Cadi Davies.
On a sultry evening at the end of June 2018 we played at the Willow Gallery in Oswestry. As always we were superbly looked after by Marysia Shepherd, and by Phoebe Rees, who was MC for the night. See the Willow Gallery website for their concert programme.
In July 2017, on another hot day, we spent a couple of hours on a canal boat in Chirk with Mark Holdsworth and his wife Sue, recording three tracks for their ‘Narrowboat Sessions’: see thenarrowboatsessions.com. Then in the evening we played down the road at Black Park Chapel, Halton, Chirk. You can see what other concerts are coming up at Black Park at blackpark.org.uk.

Back in September 2015 Sean Harris roped us both in, along with harpist Christine Mills, to contribute to the soundtrack of an animated film based on the migration cycle of salmon. The film was made to be shown in a mobile projection rig including multiple gauze screens. Recording took place at Capel y Briw near Llansilin: music and sound effects were improvised and later assembled, along with a poem written and read by Arwyn Groe, into a soundtrack by musician and sound engineer Jim Brook. You can see the film here.
Below are some photos from the recording session:
