The group developed from the regular workshops that happen near Crickhowell and has had more than 20 different members since it began, ranging in age from 20s to 60s, some travelling considerable distances to play with us. We aim to have fun, develop our skills, repertoire and creativity, gently expand our limits and take the opportunities that come our way to showcase what we do and inspire people to have a go themselves. We are also very interested in
