The  Amazing Clouds.

The Amazing Clouds are three talented multi-instrumentalists who play a unique and exciting mix of their own songs, folk, jazz and pop.  They aim to excite and amaze. Pete, Di & Dom had been in a band together in Nottingham and re-met at Graigaid last year after a gap of 25 years! Graigaid put us back in touch & we intend to repay this by playing a stonking good set.

 

Ceidwad Y Gan – Quaykeepers.

We’re an independent rock band based locally in Ruthin. We’re a bilingual band who recently performed the winning song on S4C’s ‘Can I Gymru 2018′(Song for Wales 2018). We write our own material in Welsh and in English, and also perform some of our favourite covers. This is our second year performing at Graig Aid – we had a great time here last year, and we’re delighted to be a part of this positive cause again this year.
