Fire in the Mountain 2019
Fire in the Mountain 31st May - 2nd June 2019
2019 Music Line Up
After a bumper party year in 2018, this year we go back to our roots with a lot more traditional folk bands on the bill - it´s all about those fiddles and banjos! There are some amazing night time dancing bands booked too... deep folk by day, deep beats by night...
Spotlight Trinidad and Tobago
Another new things we are starting, and copying from the amazing Celtic Connections festival in Glasgow, is to “Spotlight“ the traditional music of another country/culture each year. After some of our crew visited a beautiful festival in Trinidad last year (New Fire Festival), we have chosen Trinidad and Tobago - bringing some Carnival Vibes to the hills of Mid Wales! Performing will be veteran Calypsonian Singer Tobago Crusoe and his band Tobago and D´Lime (who also happened to do the soundtrack to Paddington Bear movies!). The Bristol based crew behind “The Super Soca Show“ will play a set on the “History of Soca Music“.
