GUEST,albert Folklore: The music of Wales (119* d) RE: Folklore: The music of Wales 08 Nov 07


Reply to Peace
I would say that folk music is popular in Wales but with reservations. The folk club I go to in Pontardawe is working hard to pull in audiences but we need more people to come along.Pontardawe has an arts centre and the place is usually packed out for gigs by Carthy and Swarbrick or Bellowhead. Pontardawe also has a lively festival which has moved away from its original folk roots to encompass other forms such as rock .
However,
there are lots of musicians in the area we do not see or who do not feel the need to come along so there is much more that needs to be done to make people feel welcome!
We are talking about workshops for beginners and specialist instruments .

In the meantime the great scottish singer,Ian Bruce is appearing at the club on the 16th November and all are most welcome to come along!
