We came together to celebrate the music of those who are no longer with us, a list that sadly and ultimately grows longer as that evil beast called time passes by…
To remember Jonny Fflaps, Barry Cyrff, Al Maffia and Bern Elfyn Presli.

Thankfully this year, there’s been big pieces in the local rags and a bit of a feature on S4C (that’s Welsh TV to you kids). So you should expect a decent turnout.
I was there early, had a tight schedule and had to be at a Wobbly Hearts wedding in Llandudno by 7pm – traffic prevented me getting there anyway!
