A POPULAR series of lunchtime concerts has returned to Llangwm with a full line-up of local singers and musicians.

Cwm Cerwyn Ensembles performed the first in the series on Sunday, January 13 at 1pm, in a show sponsored by Llangwm’s Cottage Inn and will be followed by six more concerts, at fortnightly intervals, each of them sponsored by a local business.

Later this month, on January 27, local duo John Roach and Joe Griffin, sponsored by Great Nash Farm Holiday Lets, will be serving up Celtic folk music with the occasional dip into rock and blues.

February’s concerts see the sax, clarinet and flute group the Chalumeau Trio, sponsored by Redkite Solicitors on February 10, and on February 24 a capella singers Wrong Direction will be sponsored by Gareth Hughes Motors.

In March a talented group of youngsters, the Ysgol y Preseli Brass Ensemble, sponsored by Cleddau Stores, take to the stage on February 10 followed on February 24 by folk and bluegrass from The Skylarks.

The Skylarks are sponsored by Emrys Inker in memory of a Llangwm resident Gillian Richards who died last year.

The concert series is wound up on April 7 by the popular Two Pianos, also known as Seimon Morris and Sam Howley, who also composed the music for the successful WW1: a Village at War opera.

They’re sponsored by Fred Rees Garages.

The concerts, in St Jerome’s Church, Llangwm, raise money to support the display of The Talking Tapestry of Langum in a side chapel of the church, which in turn was an element in the successful restoration of the medieval church.

Tickets (£5 in advance or £6 at the door) are available online from heritagellangwm.org.uk/concerts, from Cleddau Stores in Llangwm or from Pamela Hunt on 01437 899966.
