Where to go in South Wales.

Subject: Where to go in South Wales.
From: GUEST

My wife and I are about to move to the lovely Gower Peninsula in Wales after deliberating for a long while. We currently are fortunate to have good local sessions and also play for a local Clog side all of which we will be sad to leave. Obviously we want to replace the void that this will leave and would be really grateful for any information about the folk scene around south Wales. My wife plays the fiddle and I play the melodeon (both to a reasonable standard) and would love to get involved not only with local sessions (we even know a few Welsh tunes) but also, if possible, playing with a dance/ clog side. Can anyone help?

Dunno about the deep south, but many pubs around Trevor and Clynnog Fawr were very welcoming to a Paddy player a while ago.

There are a number of clubs and sessions within easy reach of the Gower.

Lots of info here including gig listings.
Stuff here too.

Enjoy.

OOps, that second link took you to old listings.
This is a better link.

And there is, of course, the Gower Festival in June. It was our first visit this year and we had a great time. Look here

What a fantastic reaction from so many people. Thank you for the links and Carole, I am joining as we speak. The stress of buying and selling and an impending move have been lightened!

Do follow up the lead with SussexCarole. She and Andrew live at the very end of the Gower Peninsular (almost within sight of the Great Worm) and are wonderful singers and musicians.

Cheerily,
Charley Noble
