Back for a second year at Guiting power music festival.
This year we have
Urban Folk Quartet
Joe Broughton, Paloma Trigás, Tom Chapman and Dan Walsh are The Urban Folk Quartet. Formed in 2009, The UFQ’s genre-defying, all-embracing approach to folk music has captivated audiences in high-energy performances across the world.
Calan bring together the remarkable talents of 5 young musicians giving a fresh and vibrant sound to traditional Welsh music. With a contemporary and lively approach they breathe new life into the old traditions through their sparkling melodies, foot tapping tunes and spirited and energetic performances of Welsh step dancing. They blast their way through some of the old favourite reels, jigs and hornpipes with fast paced and uplifting arrangements before melting into some of the most beautiful and haunting songs.
16 Strings and a Dead Goat
A fiddle, 12 string and a bodhran - hence 16 strings and a dead goat... Now with added bass!! Playing high octane folk and some modern covers...
Recently described by one customer as "high octane folk"
Originally a duo playing acoustic jazz, folk and blues we now perform as a four-piece having added Mike Beeston on percussion and Matt Watkins on bass.
We will be serving ours pies with all the trimmings in the lovely open air setting in Guiting Power.
