Rhondda Arts Festival Presents:
TWMPATH & CALENNIG BAND
Prepare for a fun night of raucous folk music and dance led by local Welsh band, The Calenigg Band. What is a Twmpath? It’s a Welsh version of a ceilidh or barn dance, and they’re so much fun! You learn the steps as you go and all ages can join in, you don’t need to be able to dance! You’ll be taught. The band is led by concertina and spoons player Pat Smith who is acknowledged as one of Britain’s most entertaining callers and she has taught Welsh dances and called Twmpaths from Auckland to Aberdeen. She is accompanied by a pool of regular musicians Mike Kennedy (bass), Iolo Jones (fiddle), Peter Davies (whistles, recorders, oboe, bagpipes and bombarde) and Ned Clamp (guitar, mandola and harmonicas).
The bar will be open, so bring your dancing shoes ready for a night of foot-stomping fun!
During the interval we have a VERY special surprise! Join us to walk upstairs into the main Parc & Dare theatre space for an incredible Dolby Atmos sound experience; an exclusive preview of the ‘Our Space – Ein Lle Ni’ project.
Created by fab local creatives Sylvia Strand, Jonathan Gregory and Siôn Tomos Owen, featuring amazing performances from local musicians, capturing the beautiful sounds of the Pen-Y-Cymoedd area, through the ages
