The Boogaloo String Band and Emily Blewitt

We're back - Dyma ni eto!

The New Year's resolution to get all club stuff sorted in good time is already looking a bit shaky I'm afraid, but here's our first newsletter of 2019 anyway! And please don't forget that if you don't want to receive this newsletter, or you're reading this over someone's shoulder and you'd like your own copy, then use the links at the bottom, or otherwise one quick visit to our website's 'Newsletter' page will sort you out. Some of you will be receiving this because you "opted in" when purchasing tickets online - if you'd rather not receive it then please opt out - we don't want to be a nuisance!

It seems a long time ago that Bella Collins & Gareth Evans, John Freeman and the Goat Roper Rodeo Band regaled us in November with all that wonderful music and poetry, but after the December hiatus due to a venue booking clash, we're back on track and we have some delights in store, of which more below!

We raised £100 for Children In Need on the night, which brings our total donations to charities since we started four years ago, to more than £2800, mostly in the form of musical instruments, but also some cash donations as this month. Huge thanks are due to our audience for supporting our raffles!

July's audience looking very relaxed - I didn't take any audience photos last month!
Huge thanks also are due to local shops Pencerdd Music and Griffin Books for their continued support in selling tickets and publicising our events, and to Stephen Payne for sourcing our poets.

And so to the future....

The Boogaloo String Band, Emily Blewitt
Friday 18th January 2019

The Boogaloo String Band
The Boogaloo String Band are the re-vamped, re-jigged and re-vitalised trio who grew out of Boudica Boogaloo, who played the club to rapturous response in February of last year.

They are a Bristol based Americana deep south dream. The trio specialise in gorgeous three part harmony, dripping thick like treacle, served with a side of grits. 

Led by Bristol legend Nuala Honan, songstress extraordinaire and lover of old-time folk, joined by French violinist Claire Northey and old-time circuit favourite Bill Frampton, who replaces Boudica Boogaloo's  Laura Pocket on bass, their trio goes straight to the heart of Americana roots, promising a sound of the South worthy of a singalong. Make sure to join the fiddle on the dance floor and get your roots into the soil!

Emily Blewitt was born in Carmarthen in 1986, and grew up in a small town on the Carmarthenshire coast. She read English Language and Literature at St Hilda’s College, Oxford, and has an MA in Film and Literature from the University of York. In 2010 she returned to Wales to begin a PhD in English Literature at Cardiff University, where she specialised in poetic representations of pregnancy in nineteenth-century and contemporary women’s writing, graduating in 2016.

She has published poetry widely, her work appearing in The Rialto,ProleThe Interpreter’s HouseAmbit Poetry WalesFuriesCheval,Nu2: Memorable Firsts, and in Brittle Star. The title poem from her debut collection, This Is Not a Rescue, was Highly Commended for best individual poem in the 2016 Forward Prizes, and is published inThe Forward Book of Poetry 2017.
