The side was invited to visit this annual event which was held at the Weobley Castle Farm on north Gower, with the site boasting incomparable views across the Loughor estuary and Cefn Sidan sands.
We were due to dance in the barn at noon which gave Kev, Keith & Paul the opportunity to visit Pat Smith’s excellent musical workshop which explored tunes known and not so known for a wide variety of instruments that people had brought along. There were some well behaved dogs there!
The Barn is where we danced, which conveniently provided cover from an irritating shower (only one in over a week!) and it also gave convenient access to essential supplies of ale and burgers and other food which helped supplement our two performances that we gave there.
During the second performance a lot more people came in to watch and many were given the opportunity to dance Brighton Camp which went down well.
We were finished by 2pm but all felt well tired, probably as it was very warm in the Barn. It was dusty too which is why some of my photos have those strange orb like artefacts in them!
This was an enjoyable festival, and those who stayed for the complete weekend certainly were treated to some great musical acts.
