The Muse at Brecon, a new arts and community venue based at the Old Museum in Brecon Town Centre.
Built in 1837 as a Congregationalist Chapel, the building later became the town museum. Now privately owned, we want it to be used again to inspire, entertain, educate and amuse.
The Mid Wales R&B Club was started by Chris and Cath Rogers in 2014 and started in pubs around Powys’ but soon moved to Rhayader in 2015 at CARAD until the end of 2016 and in 2017 The MUSE Brecon .
The Mid Wales R&B Club is currently run by a small but perfectly formed husband and wife team. Chris started the club with Cath and new team member Angus Kings as a way to bring together people as passionate about Blues as they were Since then, the club has grown increasingly in size and popularity, with the monthly gigs selling out and Blues artists from far and wide wanting to play.

Elles Bailey Elles Bailey has a talent for crafting and seamlessly weaving rootsy blues, country, and soulful rock, with a contemporary edge. What’s more fate has blessed her with a ‘smoky vocal’ style that perfectly fits her music, after a stint in hospital as a child changed her voice forever. Her debut album Wildfire (Sept 1st 2017) which debuted at no.2 in the iTunes blues Charts was tracked in Blackbird studios Tennessee. Produced by Brad Nowell ‘Wildfire’ assembled a host of Nashville’s finest, including Grammy Award winning guitarist Brent Mason and three-time ‘Musician Hall Of Famer’ Bobby Wood. Blended together back in the UK with the likes of Jonny Henderson (Robyn Ford, Matt Schofield) on Hammond organ and Joe Wilkins on blistering guitar, the result is a unique trans-Atlantic coming together of styles. Reviewers have been wowed by Elles and her debut album with Maverick Magazine gave ‘Wildfire’ top marks (5/5) calling every song ‘Fresh & Original’ And Blues In Britain reminding us that ‘It’s a fact that very few make it to the big stage but Elles Bailey has the necessary talent, the drive, and now the product.’ 2018 starts with a bang with Elles embarking on a European tour throughout March & April, May & June.
