Thank you, Solarference

Sarah Owen and Nick Janaway gave us a superb set tonight using voices and electronic sounds. They performed a suite of 4 songs, singing in English and Welsh.
So innovative and so well presented. What we sent out on the airways wa
s not a perfect representation but we hope you got an impression of how talented and entertaining they are.

Thank you too to Mike Boston who talked about Great Western Morris and Great Western Ceilidhs . They have a Ceilidh at Bowhill School, Exeter with Polkaworks (and we played some "live" tracks of theirs) this Saturday 14 November from 8pm.
