Horizons Summer Tour
School’s out, and we’ve caught the holiday vibes and couldn’t resist heading out on a road trip around some of Wales’ favourite coastal locations. We’ve recorded 20 sessions, in 4 different locations, and can’t wait to bring these sessions to you over the summer weeks. You’ll be able to hear the sessions on air with our partners BBC Radio Wales and BBC Radio Cymru and keep checking back here for the growing tapestry of sounds, seas, seagulls, and sand sandwiches.
We kick off this first week with an acapella track from Casi, on Bangor Pier, a glorious sunrise session from N’famady Kouyate on Mumbles pier, and finishing with a beach session on Anglesey’s Penmon point with Gwilym. They are recorded out in the wild, so enjoy listening out for some of the extra sound effects and the occasional curious gull!
We’ll have sessions in coming weeks from Adam Hender, Adwaith, Aisha Vaughan, Awst, Blood Honey, Cari Ann Pierce, Cups of Te, Eadyth & Izzy, Eve Goodman (featuring Casi and Beth Celyn), Geraint Rhys, Greta Isaac, Hako, Honest Poet, Hollie Profit, Kingkhan, Luke Jones, Mared. Some familiar names to the Horizons project, and also some new discoveries from being out on the road around Wales.
Keep a close eye on Horizons social media accounts for the latest of where you can hear the radio sessions, and when the session films will be released - @horizonscymru on facebook, twitter, and Instagram
