Lovely to be invited to take part in Kilmalcolm’s second festival of sound which was rearranged to 19 May 2018 after the Beast from the East stopped play in March.  

On the theme of “community” Releasing a Water Goblin is an original story set to music based on a piece of Welsh folklore.  According to the story of Cynon’s Ghost, for the safety of the villagers, the naughty frog must remain trapped forever under a large rock.  Of course, something goes wrong.  The frog is released and the village is no more.    

Flooding valleys to make reservoirs is nothing new and has been the death of more than one community.  During the hot summer of 2018 some of the remains of these communities could be seen as water levels fell.

Big thanks to George for accompanying on sax.
