Just slipping in this quick blog to show you a review by Michael Kennedy from The Welsh Connections Show at Radio Oystermouth ...
What would you do with a grant from the Arts Council For Wales ?
Well, Cheryl Beer, that wonderfully talented singer-songwriter from West Wales decided to write and produce her own new Welsh folk tale : The Dragon Tree. I was fortunate enough
to be at the unveiling of this fantastic fusion of music, story and dance when Cheryl launched it at the National Botanic Garden Of Wales on Saturday January 26th 2013.
I won't say too much about the tales themselves as you all have a second opportuntiy to experience this at St David's Cathederal from the 13th-16th February, and then at St Cadoc's Church, Trevethin on 28th February.
Cheryl is supported by Rachel Hargrave, Amanda Painting, Jeff Beer and The Swansea Ukulele Boys with live music, but also featured are Sam Collins with Bigyn Primary School, Johnstown Primary School, street dancer - Martin Kurina and the wonderful Gofal Celf Contemporary Dancers.
Cheryl has made The Dragon Tree into a film and book.
I urge all of you to make the effort to see, watch, experience this masterpiece - it really is THE EVENT for Wales of 2013 !
Our Welsh heritage is something to be proud of and Cheryl has moved the folk tales of Wales in the next century
