2:30pm - 3:00pm - Tom Emlyn

Tom Emlyn writes honest, swirling folk songs that cut straight to the bone. Known for his work with rock bands

News From Nowhere and Bandicoot, his solo work maps an alternative Southwalian landscape drawn from psychogeography and local history.

It's a rich descriptive portrait of the unique post-industrial character of Swansea.

Written on foot and by bus, his observational, poetic lyrics and simple 60s-folk influenced melodies explore what it means to belong to a place; the bitterness, the love and the humour.

In the particular is contained the universal, and Tom Emlyn's captivating songs explore the particularity and peculiarity of human experience in a unique way.

3:15pm - 4:45pm - Igloo Hearts

Wrexham-based duo Igloo Hearts are made up of Welsh, married couple, James and Katie MacGregor. Their music incorporates classical piano and powerful harmonies, in a style that is hauntingly beautiful.

Igloo Hearts have been featured several times on BBC introducing Wales. Adam Waltons’ (BBC Radio Wales) response to their single (FishFood) was ‘Oh My God, that’s really, really good!!’ and ‘There is something quite ‘McCartney – esque’ about the melody’.

Indie Music For All wrote ‘I am astounded by the talent of this couple. They are a combination vocally, of the best bits of Kate Bush and Enya. A bigger compliment I couldn’t give them.

SWNDS Records…Favourite find of 2022… Understated. Beautifully delivered original songs…’

Igloo Hearts have played at many stunning venues around North Wales, Cheshire, Shropshire and the North West, including a recent session at St Giles Parish Church, as part of Focus Wales International Festival 2022 supporting Kizzy Crawford.

Their recent achievements include being selected for the recent Focus Wales 2021 ‘Songwriting Bootcamp’, and being chosen as finalists for the Liverpool Acoustic Songwriting Competition 2022. Igloo Hearts have also been shortlisted for the Purbeck Rising 2022 competition as part of the Purbeck Valley Folk festival 2022.

Their passion is interesting and unexpected songwriting, that keeps the listener guessing and engaged, with chord experimentation and power harmonies.
