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…/
