Snakes strike up in change to centre bill
TOMORROW night the Acoustic Meeting Ground in the new bar lounge at Pontardawe Arts Centre has a change from the previously advertised Yirdbards. Instead you can enjoy new bluegrass band — The Grass Snakes — an offshoot from South Wales outfit Roots and Galoots.
They play a mix of bluegrass classics and other material using traditional instrumentation of fiddle, banjo, guitar, mandolin, double bass and 3/4 part harmony vocal delivered in the high, lonesome way. They draw from influences including jazz, blues, Cajun, Zydeco, Motown, soul and folk too.
John Bilsborough, writer, broadcaster, performer of hilarious verse and tall tales, is a Lancashire lad who first made a name for comic verse in the folk clubs around the Pennines. Since making his home in the Gwendraeth Valley this performer has made numerous journeys to Pontardawe to perform at clubs and festival.
The house band for the night will be String Button Band. Elsewhere this week, Jamie Smith's Mabon will be performing their inter-Celtic music at Pontardawe Arts Centre tonight. On Sunday night The Philanderers will be playing at The Brunswick, Swansea.
