Three Legg’d Mare: Catch them at Ceredigion Museum NEXT weekend, Three Legg’d

Mare will be playing a gig in their hometown of Aberystwyth, sharing their traditional songs with a difference. Let Three Legg’d Mare take you

to Wales, England and far beyond with close harmonies and a wide range of instruments next Saturday (Sept 17) from 7pm at Ceredigion Museum. The band were brought together

in 2014 by a common interest in the traditional songs and tunes of Wales, England and far beyond, and the social history and folklore that lies behind them.

Their lively and sensitive

interpretations of old songs of madness, love, death, adventure and everyday life (and some original compositions) are earning them a growing following throughout Wales and the borders. With close vocal harmonies and

instruments including Appalachian dulcimer, fiddle, bouzouki, guitar, mandolin, whistles, concertina, harmonica and bodhrán, the band are one of the best in the county. Tickets for the evening are only

£7 and can be purchased by calling Ceredigion Museum on 01970 633088.

Folk, fun and fundraising They - like their songs - are

unrepenantly irreverent, sometimes saucy and always in a category of their own creating. Aberystwyth’s Brenig, a three-

piece folk group, will also be performing their original folk and contemporary songs, which tell wonderful stories. The band formed in 2012 after


bringing an evening of music and story-telling to Aberystwyth Arts Centre on Wednesday (Sept 14) with performances from some of the best local groups around. A fundraising event for the charity

Cambrian Wildwood, audience members will be helping rewild the Cambrian Mountains while enjoying exciting live performances from Quercus Burlesque, Brenig, Andy Cairns, Milly Jackdaw and Ailsa Mair- Hughes. The Cambrian Wildwood project

will restore the Cambrian Mountains’ native forest and bring back some of its lost animals. The initial focus is on 750 acres of

degraded upland valley and moorland. In time, the aim is to extend the Wildwood by further land purchase to make 7,500 acres (3,000 hectares) and by other landowners participating. Performing on the night will

be the extremely quirky Quercus Burlesque, bringing you stories, rants and musings on such timeless topics as perfume abuse, public transport, pasta sauce and parties gone bad.
