Young singer songwriter Abi Foster opened the concert, her strong voice and inspirational lyrics were as stirring as the backdrop of the large scale installation' Projected Kitchen' by sculptor Rosemary Terry and the colourful enamels by Stefan Knapp that form the current exhibition in the Sculpture Hall. The large airy, former sheepshed easily accommodated a maximun capacity pre-booked crowd of 30 and covid safety measures were in place.
Local legend, international artist and singer songwriter Jeb Nichols headlined, supported by Clovis Phillips. Jeb has mentored many local young local musicians, the line up was 100% local but drew an audience from as far away as Portsmouth, London, Manchester, Cardiff, Birmingham and North Wales. Jeb's latest release was voted album of the year by BBC music and we were not disappointed.
There were smiles all round on the faces of the musicians and the audience afterwards .
Thanks to a grant from the ACW Stabilisation Fund we were able to live stream the performance and you can still enjoy it on You Tube, accessed through www.midwalesarts.org.uk website.
