No gigs planned at present of course, but we’re looking forward to getting out there again once conditions permit.
On Wednesday 13 November 2019 we were honoured to open a sell-out concert by accordionist Karen Tweed and pianist Timo Alakotila, at Rhydycroesau Village Hall – where we recorded Crossings. Karen and Timo gave a wonderful performance, the last of a tour of the UK and Ireland.
Artist Kate Green has been walking the length of the Elan Valley Aqueduct, from mid-Wales to Birmingham, as an art work, with events on the way. We have been working with Kate on arrangements of songs she has written for this project, called Walking the Pipe. On Saturday 28 September we gave the songs their first public airing at Bleddfa, Knighton. The event was a great success with a packed hall. A second similar event took place at Knowbury, near Ludlow, a few weeks later; on 16 November we appeared at Frankley, near Bromsgrove, where the aqueduct debouches into reservoirs, and finally on 26 November at St Laurence’s church in Ludlow itself to a large audience.
