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.
“Blues Matters! represents all shades and directions of the Blues with all the enthusiasm it deserves and with seriousness, depth and belief in being open. By doing so, we bring together the music, artists/musicians, publications, creators, industry, and importantly you the fans, who enjoy, and therefore help sustain, the Blues for further generations.
The UK Blues Federation (UKBlues) is a pan-UK Federation to promote and support blues in the United Kingdom in all its forms and styles. A ‘not for profit’ federation of musicians, organisations, associations, groups, venues, companies, individuals and other interested parties within the UK who already work to support, promote and encourage blues of all sorts within the UK, to work together to achieve UKBlues‘ aims. Further details about UKBlues, its mission, its aims and its projects are on our website at www.ukblues.org
THE LOST ARC RHAYADER
The Carter family took on this amazing building with the intention of taking it back to its musical roots (we were not really into the idea of a new tannery!) – re-establishing the main hall as a music venue and a cinema. Clearly the people of Rhayader have many fond memories of times spent here in their past and we would love to create new memories for other generations too. In addition, we have plans to open a small café to nurture both the body and the spirit: it is our intention not only to offer good food, but also good music and art. Clever design by Paul and the architect has given us space to spare for a couple of practice / rehearsal / teaching / recording rooms and an extra little bit of residential and workshop space upstairs
The British Blues Exhibition is a hub for British Blues history and for the contemporary scene. We have many exhibits and our travelling exhibitions are making appearances at events. We are working towards establishing a permanent exhibition celebrating British Blues. With support from Chris Barber, John Mayall, Mud Morganfield, Huey Morgan and Connie Lush, we’re Breaking Blues Again.
Going up Country, North Wales blues club
The club has continued its fantastic rise to prominence in the British blues scene by continuing to present some of the biggest names in blues and roots music from not only the UK but also Europe, Australia and of course the USA.
On June 6th 2010, The Guardian presented a feature on small out of the way music venues featuring an old chapel, water mill, tin shed and various other venues in the UK where top quality live music could be heard. To our great delight Worthenbury Village Hall was featured as “the village hall that rocks…”
