History with talented duo
TOMORROW night at the Ivy Bush Hotel, Pontardawe, the Valley Folk Club plays host to guests Andrew McKay and Carole Etherton.
Born in South Wales, Andrew has been singing at folk clubs and playing the obscure Crane Duet concertina for more years than he cares to remember.
He sang for several years as a member of Baggyrinkle, the Swansea shantymen. Carole was introduced to folk in the late 1990s with a visit to Horsham Folk Club, becoming a resident at the Lewes Arms and Mid Sussex Folk Singers.
Carole's main instrument is the tenor cornamuse and a modern copy of the oldest known recorder from the 13th century.

This pair write songs in the traditional style, often drawing inspiration from historical tales of Swansea and Gower, their social history, industry and maritime traditions. They sing mainly traditional-style songs with or without concertina accompaniment.
There will be an extra treat tomorrow night as Andrew and Carole will be supported by a young Swansea musician, Sarah Passmore whose self-penned songs belie her age.
Sarah has been influenced by Laura Marling, Johnny Flynn, John Mayer, KT Tunstall, Rufus Wainwright and Leonard Cohen.
