Sun 14th October 
Jim Ghedi & Toby Hay
​15.00 - 18.30
Music event 

"Jim Ghedi and Toby Hay both make music so deeply entrenched in a sense of place - such as their homes in Rhayader and Moss Valley - that the landscapes of those environments runs through their records like gushing rivers or rolling hill tops. But what happens when one is removed from such a sense of place? Plucked away from the dark skies, savage weather and isolation of a Welsh town or the community at the heart of a village on the border of South Yorkshire and North East Derbyshire, and onto an open road of hours spent in cars and dining in service stations, when life on tour brings about a new sense of place daily? The answer for the pair was to make a record about it."
