Ryland Teifi + Mendocino

Date: Friday, 12th October, 2012
Where: Theatr Soar, Pontmorlais, Merthyr Tydfil, CF47 8UB.
Price: £8 (£6 consessions).
Description: Ryland Teifi is a BAFTA Cymru and Welsh songwriter of the year winner and has toured the world as a singer songwriter and actor sharing stages with the likes Steve Earl, Rodrigo y Gabriela, Liam Clancy and Bryn Terfel. His new album is a reflection of the folk heritage of his native west Wales but also meets the strong traditions of Ireland and America, especially The Clancy Brothers, Bob Dylan and Johnny Cash.
His collaboration with one of Ireland’s hottest new bands, Mendocino is an exciting foray into the fusion of folk and country song writing, singing and musicianship.
Mendocino is the brainchild of Hugh O’Carroll former member of acclaimed bands such as Hank Halfhead and the Ramblin’ Turkeys and The Glee Club. Their debut album, The Steep Ravine blends their original song writing with the echoes of Neil Young, Hank Williams and Nirvana. Tailored beautifully by the multi instrumentalist, Evan Grace, Mendocino and Ryland Teifi is an exciting convergence of songs and music.
