CEDAR HILL – Live @ The Taliesin Arts Centre Saturday 14th May

Frank-Ray

Making a welcome return to Wales, folowing successful perfromances at the Gower Bluegrass Festival in 2010 & 2012, Cedar Hill perform at one of Swansea’s most prestigious venues.

Formed by its patriarch and mandolin player Frank Ray some 40 years ago, Cedar Hill is a traditional Bluegrass band made up of five accomplished musicians and singers who have stayed true to their Ozark roots. In 2008, Frank was honoured by being inducted in to America’s Old Time Country Music Hall Of Fame in Anita, Iowa.

You will be hard pressed to find a better traditional bluegrass band anywhere. Now settled into their own in the mainstream of the National bluegrass scene, Cedar Hill has been pleasing audiences everywhere with their original, emotional, exciting brand of traditional Bluegrass.

One listen to Cedar Hill and there can be no doubt that traditional Bluegrass music not only exists, but thrives in the Ozark Mountains of Missouri and Arkansas. Honest, emotive original songs, soulful, heartfelt vocals and great picking with drive is what Cedar Hill is all about.

Frank Ray – Mandolin  Jim Bunch – Banjo & vocals

Pete Brown - Fiddle & vocals  Patti LaFleur - Bass & vocals

Dan Stokley - Guitar & lead vocals

Saturday 14th May :  7:30 p.m.

ERYNN MARSHALL & CARL JONES

Erynn & Carl

LIVE @ THE CHATTERY 

 SATURDAY 16TH APRIL 8:30 p.m.

ERYNN MARSHALL & CARL JONES

from Virginia

Erynn Marshall    & Carl Jones  are old-time musicians and     inspired tunesmiths. They are married – in life and music.

When they play, their   instruments and voices blend like two forks of the same river.

Southern song-duets and soaring  fiddle, guitar, mandolin, banjo tunes comprise their diverse concert sets. They play with ease, spontaneity and vitality. Together Carl & Erynn’s expressive, musical  meanderings can transport the soul.

“You can hear love, intention, generosity, humour and soul in the music of Erynn Marshall and Carl Jones. They welcome us in and awaken a deep sense and feeling for traditional music that is carved right into our bones.” - Dirk Powell (2015)

 

“Smokey and sweet – like the finest aged whiskey – that’s what Carl and Erynn’s singing and playing brings to mind.  

A lovely touch in their playing and a beautiful melding of melancholy and cheerfulness which is exactly what I love to hear.”  - John Doyle (2015)

 

featuring Fiddle & Banjo Tunes, Southern Duets
 

(They’re gig last year was exceptional, quality songwriting, wonderful musicianship and highly entertaining!)

Last year their contribution to our festival was immense providing a marked improvement to the sound.

Performers and musicians are always judgemental when commenting about sound quality. last year it was exceptional!
