Carausias Arise! The festival T shirt is available

Posted on

If you can be with us, or if you can only be with us in spirit and want to support us, maybe this attractive T shirt will suit?



We have tried them on, and they’re good quality Gildan Tees with a good print finish too. Image features Carausias- or at least that is who I imagine it is…

It’d be cool to see you wearing it in a few weeks too! URL below takes you to the Streetshirts site from where you can order direct.  They handle the postage and we kept the price as low as they allow us (£12), and we make a few pounds profit to go towards the festival.

The shirt is available as a promo until the week after the festival (12th March).


Parking Non Stop?

Posted on

There  are many great albums from the Alan Holmes/Zoe Skoulding constellation….I was prompted by one in this house to pick a release so folks can hear and be enticed, in case they don’t know the music….

This one is from a mere 14 years ago-but is lodged in psyche




Beyond the Species Corridor

Posted on

At long last, managed to secure Alan Holmes (Circle, Faust, Ectogram, Groceries and much more) & Zoe Skoulding (acclaimed poet and with Holmes part of the Parking Non Stop) to come and play here-being Tregaron…anyone who enjoys imaginative, playful and sometimes over the edge music should come to this.

As part of the opening night of the St Caron’s Festival, sharing the bill with itdreamedtome, I think discerning Mid-Walians  are in for a real treat.

Do consider  coming a long if you’re in the area! Or visiting!


As part of the opening night we’re really excited to promote Alan Holmes and Zoe Zoë Skoulding who will be playing at the Oriel Rhian, on 4th March.
Alan Holmes and Zoë Skoulding combine found and self-generated sounds with words and vocal textures, exploring the real, imagined, human and non-human dimensions of place. Their new joint project builds on Alan’s solo creations as The Groceries, Zoë’s international practice as a poet and their previous psychogeographical explorations as Parking Non-Stop
Recent work includes this…/zoe-skoulding-alan-holmes haunting of an empty house, and a collaboration with a pair of gulls who nested in their garden during lockdown.
Tickets for Friday alone or all of the weekend concerts are available here:…/gwyl-ffynnon-sant-caron-st…

itdreamedtome-Launching first night of St Caron’s Well festival

Posted on

Friday 4th March kicks off the first ever St Caron’s Well Festival of Folk and Strange Music. Playing on Friday night at Rhiannon’s we have itdreamedtome (Wales based David Lynch inspired cinematic ambience).
itdreamedtome is the project of UK experimental artist Johann Wlight. Utilising sparse, lo-fi equipment itdreamedtome transmutes base sound sources such as field recordings, found sounds and tape samples into shimmering, iridescent long-form passages of sonic alchemy.
Curious-see a video taster of his work:


Burd Ellen Live in Tregaron @St Caron’s Well Festival March 5th

Posted on


Pinch Punch it is the first of the Month-what better way to start than with great expectation!

Burd Ellen are playing for the first time in Wales and in Tregaron.  The duo uses innovative instrumentation, drone and sound wash to support detailed vocal work and create a unique sonic atmosphere.  The duo craft a liminal space between sacred and secular, connecting to the deep seasonal traditions of British isles.

Burd Ellen is a project featuring Debbie Armour (Alasdair Roberts, Green Ribbons,) and Gayle Brogan (Pefkin, Electroscope).  For all fans of contemporary alternative and folk inflected dream music this concert is a must see and hear.

Here’s a snippet of their last single! This will be a treat to hear live and up close. Spinetingling!

Tickets are available for the whole weekend AND separate days-your choice!







Come and Dress St Caron’s Well

Posted on Updated on

Calling all artists, craft and other makers—-An open invitation to let your imagination run wild and join us to dress St Caron’s well.

St Caron’s Day falls on the 5th March and we’re planning a Welsh bagpipe led ‘ritual walk’ with Ceri Rhys Matthews to St Caron’s well, Tregaron.
Well dressing is prevalent across the United Kingdom. Across Wales and the UK there are ceremonies and folkloric customs associated with wells.
As far as I can tell, there’s no specific custom associated with St Caron’s well on St Caron’s day. So, this is a great opportunity to use your imagination. We can make our own tradition and celebrate St Caron and all things Tregaron.
Some wells are dressed with flowers, colourful rags, pins even. We have some ideas about what we will do. St Caron has been associated with the Chi Ro symbol, and maybe you could weave or paint somehting based on that? Just an idea! :
If you’d like to be involved, you don’t need to book or register, just join us on Saturday 5th March at 10.30 at Riverside Café. This is open to all. The well dressing will be filmed as part of our project on the well.
This site gives some great information and ideas about well dressing and activities over the weekend:…/st-carons-well-festival…/
If you have any questions or want to get involved in the project please DM me. Please like and share!

Heno, 29.10.21: Live Modular and Live Folk Flute-Noson Arbennig!

Posted on Updated on

Arbenning/Arbrofol-Visionary and ancient folk tradition in the heart of mid Wales. Your Anglo-Welsh antiquaries present to you the first in a series of live space collaborations with/at Oriel Rhiannon. Kindly supported by Ty Cerdd.

Rain slashes down on Tregaron, there is a deal of darkness brooding o’er the territory. It’s not quite an Ysbrydnos, not quite Halloween and the promise of informal whiskey tasting may well warm us later, but come for the strange charm of Welsh flute folk and improvised modular synthesis, I think this will be a very special evening for the music curious…..see you later!

Ephemerides1: Koenig Function

Posted on Updated on

Hello there!

This is the first in a new series of ad hoc/occasional/interstitial releases, ultra limited this is a run of only 23, it’s a mini cdr (3 tracks running to 14 minutes) of cybernetic based musing,….the idea with the series is to get stuff out that is loitering, verging on the edge of the precipice but maybe not quite sure if it should jump or remain, (a digital version will exist for subscribers and those who buy this; if I can work out how to do that on BC otherwise, and as originally conceived, these may be one off hard copies).

This is Koenig Function by me (Dafydd Roberts), file somewhere between Our glassie Azoth & Blodeuedd, ambient, electronic, ergodic. All sounds summer 2021. Mini CDR in sealed paper sleeve, hand-stamped card, individually numbered, with explanatory one sheet….


As of Tuesday 24th  have 10 left , total price is £3.50 postage included. If you’re interested use this link. Postage is Free in the UK-if you’re over seas and wish for one can you DM me as the link only works for GB postage. For all international standard delivery add £2
