The Sons of Pitches – This event is SOLD OUT!
As seen on TV, The Sons of Pitches are a multi-award winning British vocal group combining soaring solos, impeccable harmonies and sensational beatboxing to stunning effect.
With over one million YouTube hits and a growing international reputation, they have “given a cappella a kick up the backside” (ThreeWeeks).
Since its foundation in 2010, The Sons of Pitches have captivated audiences with highly creative vocal gymnastics and a programme of inventive pop covers, original numbers and entertaining improvised songs.
Stacey and Lynne of Ffynnon bring the beautiful sounds described by David Kidman in Living Tradition as ‘magical… cool, quiet, accomplished and at times slightly jazzy or ambient’. Ffynnon have established themselves as one of the foremost traditional Welsh music ensembles. Their repertoire is deeply rooted in the rhythms, language, folk traditions and landscapes of Wales and the Celtic countries with songs based on settings of 17th, 19th and 20th century poetry. Telling tales of the Welsh people’s history – of conflict with the Anglo way of life, of a close connection with nature and wildlife – through traditional and new songs, Ffynnon’s song book is gentle and heart-achingly beautiful.
Côr Pawb Bach
Molara leads a small group of singers selected from Cor Pawb – a unique intergenerational choir coordinated by Span Arts Cheerful project which brought together singers of community choirs from Pembrokeshire, Carmarthenshire and Ceredigion, and pupils from Ysgol Brynconin, Ysgol Arberth and Ysgol y Preseli.
The group will warm up the night with an uplifting repertoire of international song which will include material from Cardiff’s first ever Singing For Water which took place in May 2015, a new song written exclusively for the festival, body percussion and yes… audience participation!
