SOUTH WALES' FOLK RELATED GIG LIST
 SOUTH WALES' FOLK RELATED GIG LIST

HOME PAGE & GIGS LIST

This web site exists to spread the word about folk music related gigs and events across South Wales and receives a huge amount of hits each month.

 

This web site now hosts information for Pontardawe's VALLEY FOLK CLUB.

 

I have also included pages listing folk clubs and festivals, regular happenings and venue addresses which I hope you will find useful.

 

The information on this site is kept as up to date as possible but it relies on people letting me know when things change. Please check that things are still happening before you travel to gigs

 

If you would like your event included please email me on cas@casbar.co.uk
