Welcome to the Website for The Mid Wales Rhythm & Blues club supporting live rhythm & blues in Mid Wales. A monthly Blues club promoting the best of contemporary blues, from traditionally acoustic to mashed up nu-blues and everything between. It is a live club with flair and atmosphere


CARAD & the muse

Carad is home to our club and it is our intention to provide top bands and musicians in a quality music venue with great sound and lighting and reasonable cost. 

CARAD (Community Arts Rhayader and District) is an exciting and interesting, independent small charity based in mid Wales.

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.


about us

The Mid Wales R&B Club was started by Chris Rogers in 2014 and started in pubs around Powys’ but soon moved to Rhayader in 2015 and settled at it’s current venue – CARAD in 2015.
The Mid Wales R&B Club is currently run by a small but perfectly formed management team of 2. Chris started the club as a way to bring together people as passionate about Blues as he was and in 2015 Chris met Pete Griffiths (Known as Griff) at a gig, they soon noted their mutual love of Blues and Soon after Griff got more actively involved in the running of the blues club. 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.


Due to a doctors orders our next three gigs are postponed. we are hoping to have these excellent artists rebooked in the near future. Then it will be business as usual next year with some best blues and roots in the UK and WORLD.
