Three more festival shows to go this summer!

the Black Arm Band have gone back home, and Mamiaith is over for now, and we’re relly looking forward to getting back to all things 9Bach, and playing 3 very different, and interesting festival shows. First Lisa, Esyllt, Martin & Mirain are off to Lorient in Brittany, to play at the Lorient Interceltique Festival, with 3 shows between August 9th – 11th. We had a great experience playing the festival in 2008, and it was amazing to hear the similarities in the Welsh & Breton languages.

Then we have a show on our doorstep as part of the Pesda Roc festival which runs from August 22 – 26th in Bethesda, with out full band show on Saturday 25th, in Neuadd Ogwen, alongside Lleuwen Steffan, and Steve Eaves.

Our last show of the year will be at Festival No6 in Portmeirion, on September 14th,which promises to be a great festival in a beautiful setting. As well as a full band 9Bach set, Lisa & Martin will be getting together with Sion Glyn ( Y Niwyl) Huw Owen (Mr Huw) & Osian Rhys Roberts ( Yr Ods, Osian Rhys) to form a band to play with Heather Jones, to play some of her classic songd from the 70′s, as well as the first ever live performance of Nos Ddu. Lisa will also be singing with Gruff Rhys on Sunday evening.
