Making a song and dance of it
November Amnesty International Benefit, Making a Song and Dance of it will be back after a 3 year break due to covid with a mix of music, song and comedy finishing with music to get up and e to. Headlining are Carmarthen based group Rookery Lane. Blend folk & rock with classical and the effortless, smooth mezzo voice of Eileen which at times borders on angelic in its expression and tone, and you have the sound of Rookery Lane. Their sound features soaring acappella, three/four voice harmonies, acoustic and electric guitars, and the melancholic sound of the viola which brings a haunting, emotional, almost ethereal feel to their music. The band prides itself on a unique quality to its music all its own. They deliver an eclectic set built from a diverse range of songs which include their own numbers across a wide variety of themes and selected songs of others.
Also performing are Aberystwth’s Côr Gobaith (choir of hope) singing songs for peace, social justice and the environment. This year we also have instantly likeable Welsh-born comedian Sarah Bridgeman who is giving us her observations in on life in Wales in a set put together especially for the evening.
Tickets £12 in advance from RhosyGilwen or £15 on the door.
