Following the enormous success of the spring and summer shows at Wrexham’s atmospheric St Giles’ Church, the music continues this Saturday with a showcase by two of Wales’ leading singer songwriters.

Now a resident of Wales, Massachusetts musician, Pamela Wyn Shannon will be one of the artists playing at the church, her inventive and intricate guitar work has been described as “a tiny chamber orchestra working in unison at the end of her hands.”

She has played with many legends of British and Irish folk music, garnering respect and admiration wherever she goes.

Meilir is the second artist playing at St Giles on the night, his distinctive approach to music is said to create interesting melody driven songs with experimental elements.

He also adopts an innovative approach to live performances involving unconventional instruments such as a box of gravel, singing wine glasses and a thumb piano. The result is an awe inspiring and ethereal sound, which once experienced will never be forgotten.

The evening will also feature one-off collaborations with audio visual artists and respected performers from the Welsh music scene, and is an occasion not to be missed with two very special performances in the unique and historic environment of St Giles Church.

Doors open at 7pm with the first act due to take to the stage at 7.30pm, tickets costs £10 for adults and £7 concessions and can be bought from Wrexham Tourist Information, Yale’s Café Bar or The Foundry.
