Dai C Thomas is a singer-songwriter from Carmarthenshire.
Influenced by the music he grew up listening to, such as Buddy Holly, The Kinks, T Rex and Simon & Garfunkel, he plays well over 100 shows a year. Having played festivals around the UK (and some shows in Australia), plus supporting bands such as The Move, he is an entertaining minstrel not to be missed, playing songs he has composed and well known classic songs from over the years.
Born in Northern Ireland but living in South Wales for most of his life, Mike McNamara is probably best known in the area as lead singer with Big Mac's Wholly Soul Band.
But he has also been writing over many years, and has had poetry published in Envoi, Orbis, Tears in the Fence, New Welsh Review, The Dawntreader and others. His third book of poetry, Dialling A Starless Past, was published last December by Arenig Press.
Mike has been entertaining crowds in South Wales, almost since time began, as a musician. This is your chance to see another side of a South Wales legend.
Norwich based folk trio Alden Patterson and Dashwood weave rich vocal harmonies, fiddle, dobro and guitar around beautifully written original songs and melodies.
Their music takes influence from folk traditions from both sides of the Atlantic with uplifting instrumentals and self-penned songs depicting tales of young travellers, sleepy seas and their affection for home.
Their stunning live performances have engaged and impressed audiences across the UK and Europe and have included an extensive support tour with folk legends Show Of Hands and main stage shows at some of the UK’s most prestigious festivals.
