Pontypridd, Rhondda

With Special Guests
Mick O'Brien

- Lunchtime music featuring 78rpm records of Patsy Touhey, Tom Ennis, Leo Rowsome, Liam Walsh and others played on antique wind-up gramophones

Be sure to set the weekend of 9/10 September aside and join us in Pontypridd for what is shaping up to be an amazing event.
