Should be some down towards Newport, Gwent, and others dotted about. There's a vaguely Irish session in Bangor.

There is a WONDERFUL young unaccompanied singer called Tina something from somewhere in the south of Wales. Whether she wants a goat-beater is another question.

A search of thesession.org's sessions in Wales returns 34 listings. How many of them are active is anyone's guess, but it's a good start.

You can start here at Trac

There's a young Newport area band called One String Loose who are making waves at the moment. I doubt if they're recruiting, but they like a session and would be keen to help if you can get hold of them, except their website seems to be down at the moment.

Taplas magazine lists regular sessions in Wales and the Borders.

Good luck

Abergavenny area (Bangor a tad far!!). Have tried the trac site (to no avail, although the big experiment thingumy looked interesting). The thread's disappearance is a bit strange. I had to search for it a few times before it came up :S Oh well so long as its there somewhere... Also I shall have a look for this singer of yours, thanks

Tori Lang is a wonderful singer - she used to live in Cardiff and attended Llantrisant Folk Club, but she stopped coming. I miss her scintillating singing... Are you out there, Tori?

The Listings (www.folkwales.org.uk) is a comprehensive all-Wales and borders diary of folk events, with hundreds of sessions, clubs and concerts.

If you're living in Abergavenny, guitarist Dylan Fowler is a good contact; he runs a studio, and can probably suggest a number of musicians. Or there's a musician named Tony Jay, father of amazing accordionist Ed Jay, who plays in a duo with fiddler Oli Wilson-Dickson. Oli used to play in a Gwent Welsh dance group and now guests in the famous band Mabon. Mabon member Jamie Smith is very approachable and knows loads of musicians. His father Derek Smith (also a Mabon musician) runs Cwlwm Celtaidd, the festival of Wales, and his contact book is filled with useful musicians - so good hunting!
