THE CARNIVAL BAND: A CARNIVAL CALENDAR
Clarence Hall, Crickhowell
Friday 1st May at 7:00pm
Prepare to be entertained by one of the most original acts on the folk and early music scene. The Carnival Band take us through the year, imaginatively weaving folk, historical and contemporary strands from home and abroad into a rich tapestry of seasonal celebration. Themes of climate, nature, tradition, migration, love and loss are explored with catchy ballads, barn-storming dance tunes and settings of texts ranging from the Middle Ages to the present. This is an evening with something for everyone and sure to be enjoyed by all.
