Friday 21st January from 20:30 to 23:00
The Castle of Brecon Hotel In The Castle Bar
Brecon, Wales.
A New Folk & more Night with a local artist performing original material and an artist from away. I can't go this time but hope to be at the next one. It'll be 3rd Fridays. This event needs lots of support because the folk scene is a bit dormant in this part of Wales.

Would I be correct in thinking that not only is there no folk scene or interest in Brecon, but also, no one in Brecon is a Mudcat?

Angus Kings a promoter from Brecon. He's not a folkie so could do with some guidance. He can be found on facebook

Is there another castle in Brecon? Seeems relevant if you want to go there before you go there as it were.
Details of the venue are useful, people use satnavs don't ya know. Without a contact telephone number of an organiser you could try the venue.

As I always say if going any distance - ring before you go, to check. If the organiser is not a folkie he may not understand the needs of attendees - not many folk organisers do - I can tell you.

Isn't Brecon a fair trek from BC? And not exactly en route to Devon.

I'm organising a folk song and music all day session in Brecon, because they don't seem to know what one is.
No venue yet or date. I'd like to do it in March.
Mr. Red: I don't live in BC, I live near Leominster. One member of Loxley lives in Brecon.

Ps Mr Red do you have a Facebook page?

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.

I sing with a trio called Loxley and are booked at Fishguard Festival. I'll be able to spread the word and find out what's going on. Just seems to be around Brecon that the folk scene is a bit sparse.

People are a bit sparse full stop. I'm in Merthyr, about 19 miles south of Brecon. Not much goin on in Merthyr either, Welsh or English. Shame. Good metal scene though.

That's what it's all about I think. My hunch was country music, but metal seems to be the sound of the valleys these days!

I'm working at the YHA in Brecon. Willing to do a spot after guests are all fed and tucked up in bed, but Fridays are not good as many people arrive then!

Did this happen?- don't recall hearing of anything going on in the last month.Merthyr and surrounds are looking pretty quiet. There's been an acoustic duo on in the Crown in Merthyr last couple of Fridays. Might have a look to see if they're playing this week. There have been a couple of sessions in the Imperial on a Thursday night but that was a while ago.Glamorgan Gates and the Ganolfan Cymraeg put a couple of sessions on, but they died a death too. Anyone know of anything going on in the top end of the valleys?

And, Sal I think what we like is something like the Salway Arms, take your van park up on Friday and leave on Sunday, no driving over the weekend.
