Subject: RE: Music: New Folk Club Brecon, Wales, UK
A few years ago I was in Aberystwyth and there was a bluegrass band called Whiskey Before Breakfast. The bass player's name was Clive Jones. He had a sheep farm, so I'd bet he's still around. They were very much involved in the local music scene. The Cardigan Folk Club I believe it was called. You may want to get in touch w/them in terms of helping you get the word out about yours.
There was a great fiddler named Peter did a teaching session @ the Cardigan Hotel and a great guitarist/songwriter named Brian Williams. Sorry, this thread is bringing on alot of recall for me.
Their session was on Tuesdays. A mix of instrumental and singing. Accompanied and acapella. Being from the States they allowed me to do a guest spot on the bill w/Tim Van Aiken. Very nice of them.
