Comedy Night

ROBIN INCE

Robin Ince is many things: a comedian, an author, a broadcaster and a populariser of scientific ideas. The Guardian once declared him a ‘becardiganed polymath’ which seems about right.

He is probably best known as the co-host of the Sony Gold Award-winning BBC Radio 4 series The Infinite Monkey Cage with Professor Brian Cox. He also co-hosts the podcast Book Shambles with Josie Long, An Uncanny Hour and Science Shambles with Dr Helen Czerski, all three of which are a part of The Cosmic Shambles Network, which he also co-created.

THE RAYMOND AND MR TIMPKINS REVUE

They've played the lowliest pub back room to the London Palladium and had a month in Edinburgh, resulting in a 5 star review from The Scotsman! I know. Posh right? Plus a load of other lovely reviews that the duo are far too modest to talk about…

Plus more acts are to be announced!

Band Pres Llareggub Brass Band

Owing to the age-old tradition of brass bands from the slate mining villages of North Wales’, Llareggub Brass Band ascend from the ashes of the past and bring with them an immense dose of heavy brass! Their music invokes the sumptuous flavours of New Orleans marching bands, together with Bronx-inspired Hip Hop and Welsh language pop music.

Formed by their bandleader Owain Roberts back in 2015, the band has released four studio albums and numerous EPs and are quickly making their mark as Wales’ best live (brass) act!

The Undertones

Sun-07-Jul 7:30 pm
£26.00
The Undertones

 

The Undertones emerged from Derry in 1976, the result of five friends learning how to play basic rock and roll.

Over the next ten years, they would score chart hits with pop gems such as  `Here Comes The Summer`, ‘Jimmy Jimmy`, `You’ve Got My Number (Why Don’t You Use It)’,  ‘Wednesday Week’ and the iconic ‘Teenage Kicks’.

Fellow Derryman Paul McLoone replaced Feargal Sharkey on vocals in 1999 and his vocal prowess and electric onstage presence soon convinced any doubters that he was more than capable of doing the job.

2024  will see The Undertones roaring back with an extensive  UK and European tour to promote the release of their very first LIVE ALBUM and we’re thrilled to have them stop off in Llangollen for this year’s Fringe!

Tue-09-Jul 7:30 pm
£20.00
Catrin Finch & Aoife Ní Bhriain

Dublin native Aoife Ní Bhriain is one of Ireland's foremost traditional fiddle players and a classical violinist of international stature who commands both the classical world and her Irish traditional heritage. From across the Irish Sea and the west coast of Wales, harpist Catrin Finch has also built an impressive classical career and ventured into uncharted musical territory, most notably through her award-winning international collaborations.

Double You – their debut album as a duo, which was released 27th October 2023 on the bendigedig label - features an exquisite collection of new compositions that draw inspiration from across the genres, taking listeners on a captivating journey on the wings of the bees across the Irish Sea and inspired by the cultures of their home countries.

Running through their stories – as individual creatives, remarkable women, and now as an inspirational duo – are universal themes of identity, self-belief and the courage to find yourself and follow your own path.

The album's title, Double You, alludes to the many similarities that connect Catrin and Aoife, making one the double of the other and creating a deep musical bond between the two.

The Selecter

The Selecter is led by their iconic frontwoman Pauline Black OBE and co-fronted by original member Arthur ‘Gaps’ Hendrickson with original drummer Charley ‘Aitch’ Bembridge. Pauline is one of very few women in the 2-Tone scene - often referred to as the Queen of Ska. 

Known the world over for hits including “Three Minute Hero,” “Missing Words,” “Too Much Pressure” and “On My Radio” The Selecter continue to tour and release new music proving that 2-Tone is still as relevant and important as it was 40 years ago. They released their much-acclaimed new album Human Algebra in April 2023. 

A 3CD Box Set & Vinyl of Too Much Pressure was released in 2021 to celebrate the album’s 40th anniversary. The Deluxe Edition reached #1 in the Official UK Vinyl Album Charts and #1 in the Official UK Independent Album Charts on its release.

The Selecter recently supported Blur at Wembley and also performed live at the Commonwealth Games Closing Ceremony in Birmingham. The anarchic passion that fuelled Selecter gigs during the original 2-Tone era is still there well and as they continue to perform around the world.

Let Gales Wine Bar treat you to an unforgettable musical journey with a blend of Middle Eastern influences with English and Welsh sounds, showcasing a vibrant mix of original, multicultural music.  The stage will be graced by three acts, each showcasing a rich tapestry of musical talent, cultural backgrounds, and global influences.

Tim Eastwood will enchant the audience with a diverse repertoire of Welsh, Borders, and Breton folk music, ranging from medieval to modern, played on Welsh bagpipes. Drawing inspiration from Welsh tradition and his extensive experience as a folk and jazz multi-instrumentalist, Tim's performance should not be missed.

Bakhita, a trio consisting of Joëlle Barker, Katie Stevens, and Sam Slater, will captivate the audience with their haunting saxophone, irresistible rhythms, atmospheric ney and clarinet, and intricate oud melodies. Their music spans from ancient to modern Cairo and the Middle East, featuring sensual and exciting Baladi classics, iconic pieces by Adel Waheb, and the reflective compositions of Anouar Brahem. The trio’s unique, individual flair, virtuosic soloing, and distinctive storytelling promise a memorable performance.

Headlining the night is Panedeni, bringing all the evening's artists together on stage behind singer and songwriter Yasmine Latkowski. Yasmine, whose compositions have been featured in Channel 4's Come Dine With Me, BBC Africa Eye, and BBC2 Art of Persia, leads this exciting new musical venture.

DOUBLE HEADLINER! Adwaith and Melin Melyn

Fri-12-Jul 7:30 pm
£12.50
DOUBLE HEADLINER!   Adwaith and Melin Melyn

Melin Melyn

“Inspiring cult-like devotion and a sea of daft grins are Welsh-speaking surf-pop heroes, Melin Melyn. Shrugging off the weight of the world through their topsy-turvy outlook, they spin hilarious yarns inspired by life’s mundanity” ~ The Guardian

Since emerging from the sun kissed valleys of Wales, Melin Melyn have constantly confounded listeners with their unique blend of psychedelic surf-rock, folk and pop that set them apart from almost all other modern contemporaries and have drawn deserved comparisons to Super Furry Animals and Gorky’s Zygotic Mynci.

Their explosive and effervescent live shows are universally lauded by The Guardian, The i, The FT, The Spectator, NME, So Young, Gigwise and more. 

Adwaith

Hailing from Carmarthen, South Wales, Adwaith grew up surrounded by a rich tradition of Welsh-language indie-rock, and the experimental bands that frequented beloved local venue The Parrot. It’s hard to overstate the impact of this cultural backdrop, and when Hollie Singer, Gwenllian Anthony and Heledd Owen first went about founding Adwaith in 2015, they too wanted to wield Welsh as an exciting musical instrument.

After signing to Libertino, Adwaith released their debut single ‘Pwysau’ in 2016, before further delving into mangled, free-wheeling post-punk. Their debut album ‘Melyn’ released in 2018 perfectly skewered the anxiety and unease of adulthood.

The record went on to win the prestigious Welsh Music Prize, and won the support of BBC Radio 1, BBC 6 Music, KEXP, NPR and BBC Introducing.

Binderella

Sat-13-Jul 1:30 pm
£12.00
Binderella

A baby cries in a bin at night - as a Faceless Man carves land for profit; a tall tower rises - as the World Tree shakes; and the fate of the earth hangs upon a single silken spider's thread.

Binderella is a tale for our times, the wild birth-myth of an Anti-Goddess who challenges the forces of greed and despair that seek to steal our future from us. This anarchistic wonder story peeks through the cracks in our society, fusing an environmental rallying cry with an uplifting call for compassion and courage in this age of crisis. 

In this debut performance The Ragged Storytelling Collective; Kestrel, Heulwen and Hazel, weave their unique patchwork vision, stitching the raw energy of punk storytelling with a haunting thread of Welsh folk melody and song in this fiercely modern epic.

Originally developed through Beyond the Border Storytelling Festival's New Voices scheme in 2021 and made possible through investment from Arts Council Wales National lottery Funding. With creative support from internationally acclaimed storyteller Daniel Morden, and leading Welsh folk musician Oliver Wilson-Dickson, this show will leave you spellbound. 

Kestrel is a dynamic and passionate performer with a unique vision. Binderella is a compelling mash-up of memoir, myth and the Matrix. A must-see! -Daniel Morden

“A back-alley fairytale, scavenged, upcycled and retold!”

“I defy anyone not to enjoy this show!”
