Keith James: Concert for a Changing World

Please Purchase tickets in advance as the audience is limited to 30

Tickets £12
Doors 8pm

Keith James: A Concert for a Changing World
Unique and timeless songs of vision, question and change
Words that reverberate with tenacity of human spirit in these current times of brooding disquiet, fractured societies and the fear of Nature. A number of the Songs written in the 20th century have changed history and moved millions of people to do things they never thought possible. Now everything is moving so fast and yet, so little has changed.
Included in this concert are songs written by, Joan Baez, Paul Simon, Joni Mitchell, Cat Stevens, Maya Angelou, Leonard Cohen and Neil Young; Also included are many of Keith's songs from his 2020 Album 'Paradise Lost' and from his brand new 2021 Album 'Can You Imagine'.
From this concert, many of the songs have been given a powerful brand new verse that stands proud against this current wave of crises.
Keith, a life-long devotee of emotional performance, approaches each of these songs with fresh courage and passion, provoking both reflection and reconciliation. 
'Can You Imagine?' is predictably yet another fine album from Keith as his rich vein of form continues. - Paul Jackson FATEA

Matthew Frederick (of Climbing Trees)


 The Belated 'Fragments' Tour, Doors 8pm

Tickets £10 advance/£12 on the door

With numerous television, radio and festival appearances under his belt, alongside live shows in the UK, Europe and USA, Rhondda Valley musician and Climbing Trees frontman Matthew Frederick has racked up five albums, two EPs and sixteen singles to date across various projects in a career that has also seen him perform with the BBC National Orchestra of Wales, record at London’s legendary Maida Vale Studios and gain BBC Introducing, Radio 1 and 6 Music airplay as well as a Welsh Music Prize nomination. Following the 2020 release of his critically-acclaimed debut solo studio album ‘Fragments’ (including the single ‘Hay-on-Wye’) via Staylittle Music, an eventful 2021 witnessed the return of the Trees with ‘Troubling Times’, their first studio release in five years, ahead of a spontaneous sixty-six day solo expedition which saw Frederick become the first man from Penygraig to walk the coast of Wales, before rounding the year off on keys for Martin Carr of The Boo Radleys, with a nineteen-date UK tour stopping off at a sold out Brixton Academy as part of The Charlatans’ 30th Anniversary Tour.

The Brothers Gillespie

Doors 8pm

Tickets £10 advance/£12 on the door

Described by Folk Radio UK as ‘weaving an especially compelling magic’, and 'showing off British acoustic music in its best possible light', Northumbrian duo 'The Brothers Gillespie' sing songs of great lyrical power, animated by the sound of soaring sibling harmony, inspired guitar playing and a rich array of acoustic instruments. Their songs and performances have a rare, intimate energy that is both earthy and ethereal, romantic and radical. The release of their third album 'The Merciful Road' sees them embark on a UK wide tour in 2022.

“Imagine the guitar work of the early Nic Jones, the close harmony work of the Dransfields and the commitment and honesty of Bob Davenport rolled into two brothers and you'll get some idea. Their new album The Fell is totally brilliant”.-Mike Harding

“This is a moving and surprising album. Stunning songs beautifully sung and played.”- Northern Sky

We Are The Monsters

Tickets £8 Earlybird / £10 Advance / £12 OTD

Doors 8pm

Monster Ceilidh Band Present: their ‘Electrofolk’ spectacular with award winning talents of Accordionist Amy Thatcher and the gifted young Teeside Violinist Grace Smith. Their powerful and uncompromising approach has brought them to the attention of many of the major UK Festivals; from Cambridge to Bestival, along with Tanz und Folkfest, Germany and Colours of Ostrava in the Czech Republic and soon to audiences across the world.

The 'Monsters' have been guided by bands like Shooglenifty, Martyn Bennet, and the Peatbog Faeries, continuing in the electronic-fusion genre with their self styled ElectroFolk.

D’n’B producer the Touch works together with electronic experimentalist and bassist David de la Haye to augment the compositions of Amy, Grace and Octave Mandolin player, Kieran Szifris. The result is a crucible for smelting riffs, massive chord progressions, intense electronics, folk tunes and a wide variety of styles from simply some of the UK’s finest folk musicians.

This is not a ceilidh, it’s electrofolkmaggeddon!

“Monster Ceilidh Band have the skills to create that instant party, with an infectious blend that fuses UK folk, with drum & bass." - Mike Green, London King’s Place, Wilderness Festival & London Folk Guild

“Young and sassy, innovative and skilful the Monsters effortlessly fuse the traditional with the contemporary”Liz Holmes, Director Knockengorroch World Ceilidh

This experience has honed their live performance into something that R2 described as an “unbeatable live experience.
