Just a quick update of YouTube videos. 9Bach, the Welsh language band who offer a new take on traditional folk songs were excellent at the Womex 2013 event at the Millennium Centre in Cardiff.
Could it get any better? The short answer was ‘Yes’.
The sheer unexpected excellence of pretty much every act was a revelation. I don’t think it’s too much of an exaggeration to say that, with apologies to the National Eisteddfod, there can’t have been many better festivals/musical gatherings in our long and glorious history.
To think I nearly went to watch Graham Parker in Bristol instead of sampling Day 2.
No offence to Mr Parker, but it was without doubt the right choice. Another fantastic night out.
