I had a good weekend musically – on Saturday me and Henry Sears had a very successful ceilidh in Moylegrove, Pembrokeshire. I had thought that people might be reluctant to dance, especially after a splendid buffet – anyway I was wrong and we did loads of dances as well as some good music in between. Here’s a compliment sent to the promoter of the evening: “Congratulations on organising a great evening yesterday – best ever in Moylegrove”
On the Sunday it was Mothers Day and the clocks went forward – after a late night I felt a bit tired but got to the National Botanic Garden of Wales in time to set up my PA in the sunshine for some music with Fiddlebox. The other half of Fiddlebox, Helen Adam, also had a late night (in the peak district!) but also arrived on time. It’s amazing how playing music just picks you up – we played on and off between 11am and 3pm including a collaboration with harpist Shelly Fairplay with no trouble at all! I was tired when I got in though!
I’m just back from a morning practising with the Dawns Gwerin (folk dancing) group from Narberth Primary School. They were great and have fantastic costumes! We dance at the eisteddfod in Fishguard on Wednesday – pob lwc pawb! (good luck everyone!)
