Dave Chamberlain will once again be hosting Acoustic Routes live from the Great Welsh Beer and Cider Festival.

Featured guests will be Mary Lauren Fraser and Brightr.

Mary Lauren Fraser

Mary plays the fiddle, what more needs to be said…

Brightr

Pretty melodic acoustic jams played by a semi-gloomy, but erratically chatty dude. Brightr has played over 600 shows all over the world, amassing a plethora of experiences, from an abandoned train station in Germany, to numerous years at The Fest in Florida and most recently a slot at 2000 Trees Festival. Spreading his own brand of gloomy-emo-pop music infused with a stage presence that can only be described as “group therapy”. Following the release this year of new 6 track EP ‘Two Sides’, you can expect new sounds, alongside the old favourites from critically acclaimed debut album ‘Year One’. Enjoyyyy!
