Originally from North Wales, singer, song writer and multi instrumentalist Martyn Peters is now firmly a resident of London and is currently promoting his debut album Veins. Released in 2017 and featuring ten original tracks written and arranged by Martyn, Veins follows themes of love, loss, optimism, friendship, social interactions and relationships. Since its release Martyn has been played on BBC 6Music by Steve Lamacq, performed support for Amy Wadge (Ed Sheeran – Thinking Out Loud, Galway Girl. Kylie, Haim, Lucas Graham) and Tommy Scott (Space – Female of the Species, Neighbourhood) and won Best Male at the Radio Wigwam Awards and has gigged extensively across London.
Mad Haven have been together for over 6 years now….Tom(17), Alex (18) & Joe (18) are playing gigs all over north Wales and the North West. The lads play mainly original material with some covers by favourites such as AC/DC. They have supported various acts locally, including Bonafide from Sweden and the Amorettes, a three piece Scottish rock band. More recently ‘Mad Haven’ opened up for London based rock band ‘Four Wheel Drive’, after which the boys were asked to support them on subsequent tours. b
Mountain Harmony are a four – part a capella Barbershop style chorus, singing songs to suit all ages. They sing a broad selection of songs : traditional, ballads and more contemporary music such as Beatles, Adele and Queen hits.
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.
