Gwdihw and a chilly, celtic roundhouse…

Posted by on Mar 25, 2014

Bore da, bonjour, guten Morgen! It’s a beautiful day in the Welsh capital and we are full of the joys of spring. What better time to share our latest news? A huge thank you to the wonderful audience at Gwdihw, who waltzed, swayed, sang and whistled in all the right places! That night has officially gone down in the “history book of magical musical moments”, as stated by Ms Ryves. Pleased to say that the lovely folk at Gwdihw and Folk in the Owl’s Nest have invited us to play again in May, so we can look forward to another riotous night of Victorian tavern style mayhem. In February we spent a freezing winter’s day filming in a celtic roundhouse… Of course we did! I don’t know why we always choose these baltic locations, but it seems to be a recurring theme. Anyhow, we hope to have some new live video recordings for you soon! Until then, adieu. Bonne nuit, cysga’n dawel… xxx...

Roundhouse, Milgi & Hootenanny

Posted by on Dec 9, 2013

Well, the last few weeks have passed by in a sort of candlelit, musical blur. From the windswept, fairy-tale style gathering in St. Hilary to the table-dancing mayhem of Milgi’s Warehouse; we had a truly memorable November! A huge thank you to everyone who came to support us for the launch and the folk at Milgi for being such fantastic hosts! The album is now floating in the ether, perched on some icloud somewhere… it feels good to finally have it out there! Next up is our show at the Hootenanny Brixton on the 14th December. We do hope you can join us! http://www.hootanannybrixton.co.uk/...

Album launch!

Posted by on Oct 17, 2013

So, the finish line beckons! Our album is currently at the printers, along with the beautiful artwork by the extremely talented Nanna Koekoek. Oh, it’s all so nerve-wracking! It’s also hugely exciting to see the fruition of all our hard work. But it doesn’t stop there! As people keep telling us – the hard part starts now, maintaining that momentum and pushing it. (That’s why I’m writing it down, so we’ll have no excuse to be lazy and complacent!). In the meantime, we have the launch to look forward to and lots of lovely shows on the horizon. We hope you can join us! We’ll be sure to keep you posted on any new developments and  please hook up with us on facebook and twitter, if you haven’t already, for more regular updates! Thanks,...

Tea and biscuits

Well, August has been an intensely satisfying month so far! We’ve played some wonderful shows and had our first few performances with new members, Caz Ryves (double bass), Donal Whelan (sax and flute) and Iolo Whelan (drums). It’s been a whirlwind of beautiful music, fabulous company and copious amounts of tea and biscuits… Yes, we are that rock and roll. We’re currently sorting out dates for our album launch. Yes! The time has almost come! We’ll be posting dates within the next few weeks, so please watch this space. A big thank you to Rich for looking after us so well at The Green Gathering, to Jeff for a marvellous weekend in Pembrokeshire and the folks at The Canteen in Bristol for a delightful evening and delicious food, (special thanks to Leo Nine for the sound!). See you all soon! Cariad mawr, MMF...

Pipes…

A big thank you to everyone who came to last night’s show at the Printhaus! Especially those of you who swayed drunkenly and sang along in the most exquisite cacophony, you made it extra special!  Keep an eye out for more events from our lovely friends over at Pipes Artisan Brewery xxx
