Laugharne festival 2012

15 Apr


I filmed this lovely number of Georgia Ruth yesterday afternoon at Laugharne festival. It was such a soothing heart warming set i had to nip to the Tangled Parrot record stall to buy her new collection of songs, that is pressed on sexy vinyl called ‘In Luna’.  Sexy folk for the out door love-makers, a roll in the meadow as Disney cartoon animals peek & snigger from behind the bushes (SCREEEECH!!! I’m getting carried away, sorry).

The album artwork by Tom Winfield is a subdued womb-like master piece, styled as an ultrasound snapshot from a pregnant moon or a postcard from your unborn moonchild, i cant decide. Which ever it is, I love the record sleeve as much as the music by Georgia.

Also on the afternoon line-up we had equally great sets from Cowbois Rhos Botwnnog & Huw M. A rousing pressure stirred from Cowbois Rhos Botwnnog, that kept all firm in their place to be rewarded with a climatic finale of a set. Huw M came to stage accompanied with Lucie Jane Simmonds aka Lucello the cello player & another young lady Bethan Mai, who played the accordian, glockenspiel & percussion, giving a deep full sound. Playing a collection of earthy playful folk from both albums ‘Os Mewn Swn’ & ‘Gathering Dusk’. I tried to film a couple of songs but my position was doomned with passer-by’s. But i have photos of the gig HERE
