Great gig last week opening for CandyRat’s Craig D’andrea and Trevor Gordon Hall, and look out for an appearance in Cardiff Life as they covered the Welsh BAFTAS

15 Sep

Some great gigs this week, entertained at the Welsh BAFTAs in the Park Plaza, will be joining some very talented folk including no.1 Blues Charts topper Skip Flinn at The Moon tonight. I’m also incredibly pleased, honured and excited to be returning to the Moon next month to open a Candyrat double bill of Craig D’Andrea and Trevor Gordon Hall. More details to follow!

After returning from a week playing in Spain, this week’s been a busy one, performing at Cardiff Library, an hour long solo performance and workshop at St David’s Hall as part of The Welsh Proms, and appearing on Radio Wales with Jamie Owen. Wales Millenium Centre next month, more news to come

Not only am I pleased to be performing another solo set at St David Hall’s Welsh Proms, but I’ll also be teaching a free kids guitar workshop beforehand. So if you know of a young budding guitarist, no matter how inexperienced, contact me or St David’s Hall for a free lesson!

Music

I was recently asked to appear on Jamie Owen’s morning show on Radio Wales, and performed Zombie Pirates and Gwenllian along with a brief interview. Here’s the first part, with Zombie Pirates followed by a chat with Jamie about the album and musical inspirations (i.e. hours and hours of watching youtube).

Spanish medley is indeed what it says on the tin, a medley of some of my favourite Spanish tunes to play. When I started learning the guitar I was very typical of pretty much what every boy my age did, started with power chords, playing green day and blink 182 etc, before moving on to blues and then being devoted to learning every note of every Led Zeppelin song. Until one day, I saw El Mariachi, and discovered my new musical obsession.

Kevin’s Room, following on from the self explanatory song naming habit of Spanish Medley ( I swear I have more imagination than my songs titles would imply) was just something I started playing about with in the front room of the album’s producer, Kevin, whilst he was fiddling with the settings on the computer (an important task that goes over my head and takes up about 80% of all recording sessions). Thinking that we’d stumbled upon something worth looking into, we quickly got to recording the improvised tune before I could forget it.

    1. Dewi, you played beautifully at our wedding on Saturday and we wanted to thank you and will recommend you to anyone and everyone. We thought the mix of Spanish music, and your original take on classical and modern music was so fitting for the event and loved every minute. Thank you.

    2. Hey Dewi, caught you at the Old Library last night and bought a CD. It was a superb evening – a privilege to hear you explore the guitar. I’ll keep in touch and hope to see you at a gig in Chelsea soon. All the best
