From Barmouth to top of the tower

Hard to believe that it was exactly a year ago yesterday that we completed the run of NTW04  'For Mountain, Sand & Sea', and how did we mark the occasion? We officially launched our new project ADAIN AVION on top of Wales' tallest building in Swansea with a fly pass by the red arrows...way to go!

Back to Bermo at last

I am finally on my way back to Bermo to begin the residency in full. Stopped over at the Hay festival on the way for an event on behalf of NTW where The Guardian critic Michael Billington interviewed Lucy Davies, Mike Pearson and me. What a charming man, and, as we discovered over dinner a fervent disciple of Ken Dodd !

He even donated us his case of cava ( the Hay gift to participating artists), much to the delight of Catrin (NTW’s wonderful press officer) who is also ‘caring’ for mine as… Continue

Hitting a Stride

It's Friday morning and I'm on the train to Swansea. Shelf Life, aka NTW02, is in the middle of tech rehearsals and I'm planning a morning of sitting at the back of Swansea library being supportive.

I met up with local musician Chris Knowles who actually has his Celtic harp, bought at auction. He played a composition by Roberts himself called 'Ar y traeth yn Bermo', 'On the beach in Barmouth'.
How appropriate!

Dafydd Roberts on the prom,…

The Excursionists (Amended)

Sian and I are coming to the end of an extremely productive development week here in Bermo and ‘For, Mountain, Sand & Sea’ is emerging! I shall reveal more in a summary blog of our excursion next week. In the mean time here’s a rather wonderful report taken from the Caernarvon and Denbigh Herald in 1871 (not the Barmouth Advertiser as stated yesterday).

‘BARMOUTH. EXCURSION. – On Saturday last from 900 to 1000 excursionists were brought here from Manchester, per the Great Western… Continue
