Raise your glasses to Gower rhythms - folk with Gwyn Jones
WELL, it looks as if autumn is finally catching up with us, so what better way to perk up your weekend than by going along to the Gower Cider Weekend at the Gower Heritage Centre, Parkmill.
The festival will run on Saturday (12th) and Sunday (13th) and there will be plenty of performers to entertain you over the two days.
Amongst those due to perform will be the familiar figure of Blues musican Sicknote Steve. As a self - taught all round multi - instrumentalist, he has established his name as a solo performer and over the years developed his all-round experience playing guitar, banjo, mandolin, harmonica, whistle and more. His repertoire includes some of the great blues classics as well as those that are a celebration of the work of Seasick Steve. He is now a regular highlight at blues and acoustic festivals around the country.
Bear Bones - John Howes (guitar, bouzouki, vocals) and
Huw Jones (melodeons) are a versatile duo performing traditional folk and roots-based songs and music at folk clubs, concerts and festivals, as well as having a growing reputation for creating music and songs for specific events and productions. The pair have a wealth of experience behind them, having played in a variety of collaborations over the years and are well known on the South Wales folk/roots music scene. They will be joined for this occasion by Rob Musgrove on bass. Expect an eclectic repertoire.
Amongst the other performers due to appear are Swansea born folk singer-songwriter Andy Jones (ex Boys From The Hill) now performing solo, The Mothmen, Lost Tuesday Society, The Fevers, Jamie Nemeth, Max Adams, Ian Charles and Ian James.
