On June 7th the Llanfihangel-ar-arth and Parish Local History Club had a presentation on Ceredigion Folk Songs by Owen Shiers.
One definition of folk singing is music transmitted orally from generation to
generation. He had used a number of sources such as the National Library as well
as talking to local people. One feature of folk singing in the County is the use of the
aeolian mode. We heard a number of old recordings and Owen sang several examples he had discovered.
The programme for the next term is being prepared at the moment. The first meeting will be on Thursday October 10th in Neuadd yr Ysgol, Llanfihangel, at 7:30pm, speaker to be confirmed.
A warm welcome to everyone
