Theatr Mwldan

THURSDAY 8th MAY - Gypsy Fire. Gypsy Fires explosive energy and talent has created a dynamic quartet that is unrivaled. Individually they are acclaimed soloists, together they are simply breathtaking.
WEDNESDAY 21st MAY- Jim Moray. Moray’s career has been a continuous avowal of folk’s relevance to contemporary life and its total indivisibility from the impulses which shape the very best rock and pop. He deploys beatboxes and melodeons, electric guitars and thumb pianos, mandolins and rappers. He sings with the kind of English soul which has no home century.
WEDNESDAY 11th JUNE - Bella Hardy BBC Radio 2 Folk singer of the year 2014 8pm. £12 (£10).
