S’mae pawb hi everybody,
Dawn and I would like to say Merry Christmas to you all, and to thank you for all your support for Between The Trees. Together we all made this beautiful and memorable event happen.
Last year’s festival exceeded all our expectations, words like “magical, wonderful and life-changing” have all been used to describe the weekend. We had amazing performances from all our artists and some incredible talks and films in the Red Film Barn. Volunteers and festival-goers became more like family and friends.
Although we said we’d have a well earned rest, we’ve already been planning next year’s event. We’ve booked some great acts so far, such as Noble Jacks, Sam Kelly, Flight Brigade and Luke Jackson, to name but a few. We hope to increase the amount of science in the festival and are going to explore the “Biodiversity” theme. We want to offer all of you the opportunity to do some real science at the festival and, at the same time, learn about the wonderful flora and fauna of the area. We are also really happy to announce that the wonderful people at Merthyr Mawr Estate are making some great improvements to the Candleston site for 2019 , which will make it an even better experience for everyone.
Last, but not least, we’d like to share some of the music we’ve been listening to this year. Our top 10 include: Click to listen to Dermot Kennedy, Tall Heights, Firewoodisland, SaintSister, Seth Lakeman, Allman Brown, Gregory Alan Isakov, Hollow Coves and Wild Rivers.
Merry Christmas and a see you all next year at Between The Trees x.
